Finally Fabulous Friday

Hi Everyone!

Hope you've had a great week. Mine was excellent. Writing a book that's near and dear to your heart and hearing that people are loving it does an author good. (: Thanks so much for the messages and emails regarding SECOND CHANCE. I'm so happy readers are enjoying Cole and Keeley's story and the happy ending they received.

Tonight, we'll start chatting on the Yahoo loop about SECOND CHANCE. If you would like to join the loop, just send me an email at and I'll send you an invitation. Just be aware that tonight's discussion will include spoilers!

I'm in the midst of some major brainstorming for the 2011 SWEET trilogy. Thinking about mixing things up a bit. Be prepared for some surprises!

And guess what? 32 days until the release of LAST CHANCE! Yes, I admit, that seems like a long time, but with Spring arriving and lots of things going on, I anticipate the days will fly! I was thrilled that LAST CHANCE received a Top Pick rating from Romantic Times Magazine! The RT reviewer called LAST CHANCE a truly wonderful story. Yay!

Here's the link for the review:

Oh, and I have one copy of SECOND CHANCE left! So, if anyone hasn't had the CHANCE to grab a SECOND CHANCE, post a comment here with: I WANT A SECOND CHANCE! First person to post these words will win.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and don't forget to come back on Monday for Recommend Monday!

Until later. Read some great books and enjoy the wonderful new Spring!

I already have my SECOND CHANCE, but someone will be really, really happy to get that copy you have. I'm thinking about reading it a second time. So, so good.
Spending the day with my best friend and my younger son as we try to get as much out of Spring Break as possible. Lunch, toy store, and BOOK STORE. Yay!
Hope everyone else has a great Friday.

Hey Kara! Have you enjoyed your Spring break? Hope you got to do some of your favorite things. Sounds like today will be a fun one.

So happy to hear you want to reread SECOND CHANCE! Look forward to chatting with you on the loop about it.

Enjoy your day!

Someone REALLY needs to post because this book is really, really awesome! Christy pulled another SWEET winner!!!!! Can't wait until tonight so I can tell Christy how SWEET it is.

Christy Reece said...

Aw, thanks Jackie! You are such a SWEETheart!

Looking forward to chatting with you tonight!

Hello everyone! The sun is shining brightly and the birds are singing. I think maybe Spring has finally arrived!

Christy - were any of the books you read for RITAs on the nomination list (or can you say)?

Kara - hope you have fun in the "big city" and find some treasures!

Jackie - couldn't agree more with you. Somebody needs to post fast and win that SWEET REWARD! SECOND CHANCE is certainly another big winner. It would make a spring day even brighter for the lucky winner!

Looking forward to chatting tonight about Cole and Keeley! Am out the door for my playdate with the grandkids! Perfect day!!!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Oklanannie! Sounds like you've got a wonderful day planned!

Can't say about the Rita books I read, but it was so exciting to see so many wonderful authors I've read get nominated. I love the Rita/Golden Heart ceremony at RWA Nationals. It's like the Oscars for romance writers. Everyone dresses up...some wear gowns, men wear tuxedos. And every time someone accepts an award, I cry. Their speeches are always so heartfelt and SWEET. It's just a cool cool night.

One of my dear friends and Southern Magic chaptermates received a nomination for her YA novel, Going Too Far. Even if you don't normally read YA, I encourage you to give it a try. I think you'll really enjoy it. I am so thrilled for her!

Looking forward to chatting with you tonight about SECOND CHANCE.

Have a marvelous day with the grandkids!

I haven't gotten mine yet but I WANT A SECOND CHANCE:)

I had to repost my comment. For some reason it's not showing up:)


Ronlyn said...

WOOT! Can't wait for LAST CHANCE!
I'm so glad it's Friday, even though it hasn't been a particularly productive day as of yet. I'm still trying to decide what to make for dinner: margarita shrimp or taco salads. Both will be served with margaritas, soo... :-)

Christy Reece said...

Yay, Christina! You won a SECOND CHANCE!

Email me your mailing address at


Christina R. said...

YAY!!! Thanks Christy!

And my husband says nothing good ever comes from sitting in front of the computer all day. Thanks for helping me prove him wrong.


Mary G said...

Congrats Christina R.
No Chance kept me up last night till 2:30AM & I still wanted to keep reading. Going to read more now -it's lunchtime.

Christy Reece said...

Hey Ronlyn! Oh, I would vote for margarita shrimp, but anything with a margarita tastes great!

Enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Yay, Mary! I'm sorry you lost sleep but love that it was because you were reading NO CHANCE and enjoying it.

Looking forward to chatting with you later tonight.

Hey everyone hope you are all having a fabulous day. I just found out that we had a baby colt born last night so that is exciting! I can't wait until Recommend Monday! My internet was down last Monday so I have two weeks worth of books to tell you about. I read the last 3 books of I-Team!!!....sigh...WOW!!

Have a great weekend! Talk to you guys in a couple days

Jane said...

Congrats on getting a Top Pick rating from RT for "Last Chance."

Amber E. said...

Christy, congratulations again on the release of SECOND CHANCE and for getting Top Pick from RT for LAST CHANCE. Now the count down begins for the release of LAST CHANCE, and I can't wait. You got me curious what the suprises are going to be for the 2011 SWEET Trilogy. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Crystal, congratulations on your new colt. How wonderful for you!

Looking forward to chatting with you Monday. Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Thanks so much, Jane! It was a much needed boost and wonderful news!

Looking forward to hearing your recommended reads on Monday! Have a great weekend!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Amber E! Thanks so much. Feeling very blessed this week.

Surprises for the SWEET trilogy? LOL. I get surprised as I write, so we'll probably be surprised together. (: Going to be fun, though!

Christy Reece said...

Amber, meant to say, before I pressed the button, hope you have a great weekend too!

Check in Monday and share your recommended reads with us.

No Chance was an amazing book! Was the best book so far IMO. I picked up my copy of Second Chance last night. Looking forward to future books by Christy. Christy, you are a fantastic writer who has a real knack connecting with your readers through your stories. You bring the characters alive for me and for a few short hours I forget that they aren't as real as you and me. Keep up the good work.

Christy Reece said...

Wow, Anonymous! Thanks so much. Those were lovely lovely words and I so appreciate them. I am thrilled you enjoyed NO CHANCE!

Hope you enjoy SECOND CHANCE just as much!

Big congrats Christina!
