Finally Fabulous Friday

Hi All--

Hope you've had a good productive week. Mine has been quite busy but not in the way I planned. I'm still playing catch up so I've spent way too much time away from home, away from my writing. But today, and hopefully for several more days, I'll be here and writing away!

I received an exciting package on Tuesday. A box of books--RESCUE ME, the German translation. Wow, it's so interesting to see my words in German and have no idea what they are! I recognize names and that's pretty much it. My sweetie said he took a semester of German and is sure he can interpret it. Yeah. Right. (:

The LCR Yahoo group is about to get started. Yay! You can join anytime by sending me an email at with your preferred email address and I'll send you an invitation. There are a couple of people who asked to join but haven't joined yet. All invitations have been sent, so if you told me you wanted to be on it and haven't received the invite, you might want to check your SPAM folder. If it's not there, let me know and I'll send you another one. I'm looking forward to talking with you guys about LCR and plots. Should have lots of fun!

Have I mentioned lately that SECOND CHANCE will be released on March 23? Twelve days from today! And since it's Friday, I thought it'd be a good time to give away a couple of copies of SECOND CHANCE. I'll announce the winners tomorrow at 10:00 (CST). For a CHANCE to win, tell me what you're reading this weekend.

Happy Friday all! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, filled with your favorite things!

Very special & different from the others. Congrats on the Geman release. I hear foreign rights & sales are a big sign of success. Have a great weekend.

I've never read your books before but I love the exerpts on your website sounds promising!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Mary! Glad to hear you're enjoying NAKED EDGE. I haven't had a CHANCE to read it yet, but from all I've heard, it's got to be a fabulous read.

Thanks for the congrats. It is a thrill to have a German release!

Looking forward to chatting with you on the loop. Have a great weekend!

Ronlyn said...

YAY for Friday!! Sadly it looks like I'm going to be taking a bit of work home with me, but hopefully not too much.
I'm not sure what I'll be reading this weekend. I've been rereading Darkfever (KMM) and have stumbled upon things I'd forgotten about, so chances are I'll keep going.
But, I've got two little boys who aren't feeling all that well, so it could be a pretty mellow house with lots of cuddling.

Christy Reece said...

Hi Andrea! I see we're new Facebook friends. Great to see you here too!

If you get the CHANCE to read my books, hope you enjoy them.

And thanks for telling us what you're reading. I have a recommend day every Monday to recommend your favorite reads from the week before, so if you get the CHANCE, be sure to stop by on Monday too.

Have a great weekend and be sure to pop in tomorrow to see if you've won.

Happy Friday Christy!
I am currently reading Kresley Cole's IAD series I am reading No Rest For The Wicked. I am totally hooked on this series. BTW, I received and read No Chance. It was awesome!! I totally can't wait to read Second Chance!
Have A great Weekend Christy :)

Christy Reece said...

Hey Ronlynn! Sorry to hear your little fellows aren't feeling well. Hope they get better soon. Cuddling your young'uns sound like a wonderful way to spend a weekend though.

Yay on KMM! She is one author I'm dying to read but just haven't yet. Need to make her a priority. I've heard fabulous things about her series.

Have a great weekend and hope everyone is 100% by Monday!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Tawania! So happy you enjoyed NO CHANCE!

I love Kresley Cole! I'm so far behind on her series and need to get started back on them. She's awesome. Have you read any of her historicals? They're wonderful too.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Crystal (cmac) said...

Hey Christy
I finished Extreme Exposure yesterday it was good. Hopefully I'll be getting the next one in the mail today! I should also be getting Robyn Carr's Virgin River series soon. I love getting books in the mail its like a surprise gift. lol
Have a great weekend everyone! Hopefully you guys get some good reading in so you can tell me about it on Monday. My world of authors has expanded because of recommend Monday!

Oh Christy don't enter me into the contest either. I've been a very fortunate winner already!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Crystal! Just wait until you meet Julian in Hard Evidence. Sigh...(:

Have a fabulous weekend!

Mary G said...

Hey Christy
No fair influencing people on Julian. What if I said wait till you meet Marc in Unlawful Contact? You didn't see that did you Chrystal?

Crystal (cmac) said...

lol I can't wait to meet both, but I will be sure to let you guys know which one makes me "sigh" those are the guys that make a lasting impression.

Mary G said...

LOL I thought I had it figured out till Naked Edge. That book is just magical & it would be like comparing apples & oranges. It's on a different plane.

oklanannie said...

Fabulous Friday has arrived! It's cloudy, windy and cold today. I hope the weekend brings sunshine and warmer temps. I'm so ready for the colorful array of flowers that spring brings!

I'm all signed up for the Yahoo group and anxiously anticipating a great discussion.

Congrats to you Christy and those lucky Germans for the release in German.

I'm reading Madeline Hunter's "Ravishing in Red" for my hometown bookclub meeting. So far, it's good (historical). I much prefer romantic suspense and I've got a really fantastic extra-special CHANCE for one of those coming up next!!!!

Wishing everyone a great weekend! See you on Yahoo, too!

P.S. Don't enter me in the CHANCE to win -- I've been way too lucky and fortunate lately.

Hi Christy! happy Friday!

I am currently reading Finding the Dream by Nor Roberts. I am waiting for some books from Romcon as i get to judge this year. Hopeing they come if not I have a Linda Howard book i want to start.


Christy Reece said...

Hey Oklanannie! It's semi warm here, but the rain has been coming and going for way too many days now. So ready for it to dry up and all those beautiful spring blossoms to start blooming.

I love Madeline Hunter and have heard great things about Ravishing in Red. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend. We'll start chatting soon!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Lisa! How fabulous that you're judging RomCon contest books. Hope you find some gems!

Enjoy your Nora book and if your contest books don't come in, you can never go wrong with a Linda Howard, that's for sure.

Have a great weekend!

Jackie P said...

I am reading........Unlawful Contact!!! Missed Julian's book because they didn't have it in the store but saving my decision on which team I am on until I finish the books.

MaryG...Lora Leigh has the new cover and date Aug 2010 for the new elite ops book coming out after BlackJack.....Renegade!!!

Jackie P said...

Please don't enter me either. Me and a couple of my friends plan on pitching tents at B&N on the 23rd. We are having a Cole (sigh) party. LOL

Christy Reece said...

Hey Jackie! Actually Unlawful Contact is my favorite in the I-Team books, even though Julian is the one who makes me sigh. (of course, I haven't read Naked Edge, so could totally change my mind in the future). Enjoy!

You said: "Me and a couple of my friends plan on pitching tents at B&N on the 23rd. We are having a Cole (sigh) party."

And I say: "I want a picture of that!" (grin)

CrystalGB said...

I am reading Jennifer Estep's Spider's Bite.

Mary G said...

Hi Jackie
I can't believe you remembered I love Lora Leigh. Thanks for the update. I hate this reading slump. I have Black Jack, Nauti Geceptions & Guilty Pleasure & haven't read them even though I had to get them on release day.

Jackie P said...

And since I have been hanging around ya'll, amazingly my brain has pick up a few things, you(lora leigh)Kara(robin carr,clare ect)oklanannie(historicals?)and a ton of us love Tyler, Bruhns,Clare, Howard,Garwood, ect.

Hi Christy,

Congrats on the German release!

I've just finished reading "Run to Me" by you know who! LOL! I'm currently reading "Shades of Midnight" by Lara Adrian.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Kara C said...

Wow, so many books! Some mentioned I've already read. Some were so good, I've read them repeatedly.(Ethan and Marc deserve more than one read. LOL)
I've just finished Robyn Carr's Moonlight Road and have started Kristan Higgans The Next Best Thing as well as the new Jodi Piccoult book House Rules. They are both really, really good so far.
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. The weather here has gone from beautiful to deadly and down right chilly! Thanks, Christy, for the books :) and the chance to chat with so many others who love the same books I do. So much fun. See ya'll in the Yahoo group!

Christy Reece said...

Hey CrystalGB! Spider's Bite sounds interesting. Is that a paranormal?

Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Sarah, glad you got the package. Hope you enjoy!

And enjoy your Jodi Piccoult book. A definite emotional rollercoaster read, I'll bet.

Have a great weekend too!

Christy Reece said...

Hi Razlover. Thanks!

Enjoy your Shades of Midnight. Have a great weekend!

Alexandra said...

Hi everyone,

I just finished reading Broken - which I liked. Today, I purchashed Blackjack and Something About You. Everyone kept raving about Julie James' book that I had to read it.

Please don't enter me in the contest, I was lucky enough to win before.

Christy Reece said...

Hey Kara, sounds like you've got some great reads lined up. It's turned chilly here too. Will be so glad when it's warm every day and not just once a month!

Have a great weekend. Looking forward to chatting with you soon.

Amber E. said...

Hi Christy! I just started reading "Naked Edge" by Pamela Clare. I ordered "Hard Evidence" and "Unlawful Contact" so hopefully they'll come in soon. I also picked up Laura Moore "Remember Me" a new author to me so I can't wait to try it.

Can't wait tell "Second Chance" is out. I read where romantic times named it a top pick and how it is another winner for you. Congrats!

Jane said...

I'm always excited to see how the foreign covers compare to the original one. I started Jill Shalvis' "Slow Heat" earlier in the week and hope to be done by the weekend so that I can start "No Chance."

Christy Reece said...

Hey Amber! Wow, you definitely have some good reads ahead of you. Enjoy!

Thanks for the congrats. Yes, i was thrilled with the Top Pick from Romantic Times for SECOND CHANCE. So glad you're looking forward to it. Only a few more days. Yay!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Hi Jane! The German cover is on the RESCUE ME book page. Looks exactly like that. And wow, does it look completely different from the American cover!

Hope you enjoy NO CHANCE. Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Congrats to Ronlyn and Laura D.--winners of SECOND CHANCE!

Ladies, please email me at with your mailing address and I'll send the book out to you this week.
