Good Monday All! And Happy Labor Day to the U.S.
If you're on holiday today, are you doing anything fun to celebrate? We're in the path of massive rain here, so cookouts or traveling are out for us. It's been raining since yesterday morning but I'm not complaining--we desperately needed a good soaking. However, for those who have had more than their share, I sincerely hope it stops soon.
How was your week and weekend? Did you do anything fabulously fun? Read anything wonderful you can't wait to tell us about? If so, you're in the right place. Tell us!
Last week, I worked on my new series proposal. I'm incredibly excited about how it's developing and though the storylines are quiet different from the LCR series, the books will still involve strong characters, nasty villains and a fulfilling happy everafter ending. As soon as I can share more, I will.
Now, there's something important going on this week and I've been scratching my head, trying to remember what it was...let me think. Hmmm. Oh yeah, I got it! SWEET JUSTICE is being released tomorrow!!! How could I forget that? (:
I've already heard of several sightings and I went to Books-A-Million yesterday and saw it on the shelf myself. Wow, it looked lurverly! I've heard from several people who've already read it and so far, the feedback is very very good. Yay! Even my mom, who is without a doubt (after reading thousands of romances) my toughest critic, says it's the best LCR book so far. Woohoo!
I sincerely hope you love Seth and Honor's story. If you do, I'd love to hear from you. And, if you wouldn't mind leaving a review at your favorite review site, I'd be grateful. Word of mouth still seems to be the best way to get books sold these days. So, if you enjoy SWEET JUSTICE, please tell others. Thank you!!!
Let's talk about what's going to happen this week. Tomorrow is our all day long release day party. Prizes and fun galore! We'll start around 10:00 AM (CST) and wrap it up around 6:00 PM (CST). I'll have giveaways every other hour, including signed LCR books, bookstore gift cards, restaurant gift cards, and a few surprises too! I hope you'll stop by frequently.
Then, on Wednesday, I'll start our month long giveaway extravaganza. Every day until Oct. 4, which is the release of SWEET REVENGE, I'll have a daily giveaway. I've got lots and lots of books from the RWA conference and other meetings I've attended this year and I've been saving them for a special occasion. That time has come!
Additionally, on Thursday, the incredibly talented and truly wonderful Bella Andre will be here. She's going to talk about her books and will give away a digital copy of The Look of Love. You definitely don't want to miss out on visiting with Bella. She is a delight!
And then the prizes will continue through the month. I may have special guests drop by to say hey and I'll be sure to give you a heads-up. One in particular I'm excited about is Joyce Lamb. She'll be here on September 27 to chat and will give away two of her awesome books, True Colors and True Vision. How great is that!
It's going to be a great month and I hope you'll come by each day for a little laughter and a chance to win!
Thank you to those who stopped by the Fresh Fiction blog on Saturday. We talked about villains and I got lots of recommendations from commenters. Am definitely adding some of them to my list!
What about you? Do you have some book recommends for us? Something wonderful you read and want the rest of the world to know about too? Then let us know.
Okay, that's it from me. I'm headed to do a bit more writing and perhaps will take some time to sit back, listen to the rain and read. Big day tomorrow, so need to chill and relax in preparation. (:
See you tomorrow!!!
