Good Monday All!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting you want to share? Read anything extra special you're dying to tell someone about? You're in the right place! We want to hear from you!
My weekend was fantabulous! Saturday was my chapter's annual readers appreciation luncheon. I was excited about this luncheon for many reasons. Being around avid romance readers always recharges my batteries. The wonderfully witty Victoria Dahl was the luncheon speaker and the fabulous and funny Jennifer Echols, Victoria's best friend and critique partner, was the welcome speaker. These ladies know each other so well and their speeches were wonderful. My table was filled with some of my favorite people: My mom and two of my aunts, one of my best friends, Marie, and then three very special ladies who came a long distance for the luncheon--Jackie, Gayle and Kara. I had a blast at the luncheon. Then, later that night, dinner with Jackie and her wonderful family, Gayle and Kara. We stayed up late and giggled like teenagers! (:
I didn't get a lot of reading in last week as I'd hoped. However, I did do a bit of writing and since that's my job, that's a good thing! This week, I'm going to continue to do a bit of writing, but I'm also going to be getting ready for the SWEET REWARD
release. Have you noticed how quickly that date is coming up? Maybe it's because it's so close to Christmas--which always seems to come quickly once November hits. I'll be putting up an excerpt on my website, hopefully this week. If you're anxious to read part of the first chapter, you can view it on the Random House, Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites. Also, the first chapter is at the end of SWEET REVENGE
. Tomorrow, I'll be posting an excerpt on my Facebook page of Mia and Jared's first meeting, so be sure to come over and take a look! Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/AuthorChristyReece
Also, if you're on GoodReads, I'm giving away 5 early copies of SWEET REWARD. Here's the link to enter:
The Yahoo Discussion of SWEET JUSTICE and SWEET REVENGE is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. That's Central Standard Time. That gives you a week to read or reread both books. There will be major spoilers, lots of discussions of why the story went in a particular direction and don't be surprised if some of the characters drop in for a visit. So get your questions ready and let's chat about Seth, Honor, Alden, Tabitha, Dylan, Jamie, Stanford, Raphael, Giselle and Lance! And any other characters you'd like to know about. If you're not a member of the Yahoo group and would like to be involved in the discussion, shoot your email address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get you on the loop. Be sure to put 'Yahoo Discussion Group' in the subject line so I'll see it immediately.
Okay, that's it for me. Since I'm a little ahead of schedule, I'm going to take advantage of this absolutely gorgeous morning and take a walk. I've got some characters in my head who are interested in talking to me. Yay!
Have a great day all. And don't forget to tell us what great books you read last week!
