I’m so glad you’re here! This week (and also in coming weeks), I’ll be giving away prizes to celebrate my new website and the upcoming release of my book, Elvis Takes a Back Seat. So, of course, you’ll notice a few Elvis flavors throughout the website in honor of the king.

The first Elvis song I ever remember hearing was Hound Dog. But I think I fell in love with Elvis when he sang Teddy Bear, Love Me Tender and Crying in a Chapel. Today’s quiz: what’s your favorite Elvis song?

There is no correct answer for this one. Just chime in! I’ll draw one name from those who post a comment. Maybe you’ll be the one to win a cd of Elvis’ Number One Hits!

If you mention me on your blog (and let me know!), then I’ll place your name in a drawing for a special prize to be given away on Friday, June 8, 2007! You won’t want to miss this one!

    Hi Leanna,
    Love the cover. When I was a kid, my father had that car with the rocket fins. They kept getting stolen from our car when it was in the garage because they made the car so long you couldn’t close the garage door.

    Love the site! Your book sounds fab — great cover, huh? Re: favorite Elvis song — jeesh, is it possible to pick one? How about Elvis singing “How Great Thou Art”? Does that count?

    Leanna! Wow, I love your new cover. Can’t wait to read it as I already know you’re a terrific writer!

    I’m partial to Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Love, and I also like Jailhouse Rock.

    Oh … this is such a tough question. There are so many I love. I’ll have to say, one of my absolute faves is HARD HEADED WOMAN. Cracks me up everytime I hear it. I’m a *huge* Elvis fan.

    Fun website, L!

    Great website, and as you know, Tim and I can’t wait for the book (and the MOVIE!).
    Favorite Elvis song: Jailhouse Rock (mainly because of the groovy dance scene with the chairs).
    All the best!

    Wonderful website. I’ve already passed it along to others. My favorite Elvis song – Love Me Tender – because Andrew learned to play it on the guitar this year!

    Great site, Leanna. And your new books sounds like a great ride! I’m looking forward to it.

    I’m partial to In the Ghetto by Elvis. Such a haunting song.

    Oh, my, it’s between “I Want You I Need You I Love You” and “I Was the One.” I play (at) them both on the piano. Love the catchy lines–“I was the one who taught her to kiss the way that she kisses you now…and who learned a lesson when she broke my heart? I Was the One!” Great website, Leanna! I fell in love with that smile when I was nine years old. Mamas, watch your daughters!

    The best Elvis song is “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. I’ve seen my grandparents dance to it many times which is one of my favorite memories. Great website and looking forward to the release of your book.

    Hi, all! Can you see me waving? 🙂 Love all the songs you’re mentioning. I had such fun searching for song titles to use as chapter titles in my book.

    Mir, my heroine feels a lot like you. Elvis, well, the Elvis bust, is like a thorn in her side. Still, I hope you’ll like my book. I’ll post an excerpt closer to publication. So keep checking back.

    Y’all don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the winner from today’s quiz! And I’ll have another quiz tomorrow along with another prize to give away.

    I never really liked Elvis until I started researching his songs to use on in a book. 🙂 And I ended up having a ball listening to them. I ended up ordering some CD’s.

    Favorite…. Hmm. I guess Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.

    Congrats on the great site, Le!

    Hey Le,

    Love the site. Favorite Elvis song? Blue Suede Shoes…Bruce loves to sing it and I get a kick out of hearing him sing. LOL! Take care and I can’t wait for the release! See you soon friend!

    It has to be Love Me Tender though Hearbreak Hotel is close. Not bad for someone born about the time he died 🙂

    Welcome to the world of blogging, Leanna.
