Recommend Monday and SWEET Giveaway Day Twenty-seven!
Good Monday All!
Hope you had a good weekend. Did you do anything fabulously fun or read anything so fantastic that you can't wait to share the news? If so, this is the place to be and we want to hear from you!
Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday and shared their favorite season. And congrats to Shelly E. for winning a signed copy of SWEET REVENGE. Shelly, email me at email@example.com with your mailing info and I'll get the book out to you soon.
Hard to believe that SWEET REVENGE is almost here! Tomorrow is the official release day but since I stopped by several BAM stores yesterday and signed the stock, I know it's already out there. If you happen to see it on the bookshelf and have the chance, snap a photo for me and send it to me. I'll post it on my Facebook page. And btw, if you're not on my Facebook page, I'd love for you to come over. I post excerpts, book news, covers and chats there. Here's the link:
I'm gearing up for an exciting and busy week. I'll be here all day tomorrow for the SWEET REVENGE release day party. Lots of prizes, fun quizzes and a little LCR trivia. Be sure to come by for the celebration! Tomorrow night, I'm doing a call in for a book club and we'll be discussing SWEET JUSTICE and all the LCR books. Really looking forward to chatting with this group.
On Thursday, I'm over at two places. First, Marie Force's Romance and Oreo book club chose SWEET JUSTICE
as their book this week. (Thank you, Marie and Crystal!) I'll be chatting about Seth and Honor and the oh so evil Alden Pike. I'll also be giving away a couple of signed copies of SWEET JUSTICE
. Here's the link: http://mariesullivanforce.blogspot.com/
Also on Thursday, I'll be chatting at the Romance at Random website about unsinkable heroines, which is how I viewed Jamie Kendrick in SWEET REVENGE. Hope you can come by and chat! Here's that link:
Additionally, one of my favorite authors and people, Joyce Lamb, will be on this blog on Thursday, chatting about her writing, plus she's giving away a couple of her fantastic books. You don't want to miss this!
Since this is Recommend Monday, along with the last day of the SWEET
giveaways, it seems only right that I'm giving a SWEET
recommendation that I got from Recommend Monday. Thanks to Anne for recommending it and then Mary G for reinforcing it, I downloaded and finally read The Sweet Gum Tree by Katharine Allred. All I can say is Oh. My. Gosh. I can't believe it took me so long to read such a fabulous book. So many things in this wonderful story resonated with me. Ms. Allred describes southern living perfectly--the family dynamics, the small town mentality and the absolute joy of living in the south were all there. But what I really loved were the characters. Alix and Nick were written so realistically. You know when a book makes you cry on one page, laugh on the next page, want to shout at a character on the next page and then want to hug that same character on the next page, you have got a great book. I highly recommend this book but will warn you of two things. It is told in first person which is not my favorite kind of read but I got so caught up in the book, that it bothered me for all of one sentence and then I was lost in the story. Second, you need to schedule time to read this book. Not because it's long but because once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down. It is that good! And to make this book even more enticing, if you have a Kindle, the book is on sale for $1.49. What a SWEET
deal! Here's the link at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Sweet-Gum-Tree-ebook/dp/B003370K3Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1317656040&sr=1-1
And with that SWEET recommendation, I'm going to give away a very SWEET prize. A signed copy of any LCR book and that also includes SWEET REWARD. (Beware that I won't have copies of SWEET REWARD until late November, but if you win, you'll get the first copy). For a chance to win, all you have to do is give a book recommendation. I'll announce the winner tomorrow before we get started on the SWEET REVENGE release day party.
Have a marvelous Monday, everyone. I hope you'll leave a recommendation today and then come back tomorrow for some SWEET release day fun!
