Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Hi All!

Hope you've had a good week and are ready for a long relaxing holiday weekend. Here at the Reece house, we're going to lay low, maybe see a movie and get together with my family for a cookout on Monday. Love those family get-togethers!

Wasn't yesterday fun with Marie Force here? She's so entertaining and such a great author too! I can't wait to download Fatal Destiny onto my Kindle on Monday. Marie asked me to announce the winner of the PDF file of her entire Fatal series is CrystalGB. Congrats, CrystalGB! Marie will be contacting you soon.

If you haven't heard the news yet, let me announce it here. SWEET JUSTICE is coming!!! Next week will be a wild, crazy week with lots of fun and prizes for you and more than a little angst for me. I'm always very nervous during release week. Sending my baby out into the world and hoping people love it as much as I do is very nerve-racking. It's my sincere hope that you enjoy SWEET JUSTICE. If you do enjoy it, I'd love to hear from you!

I'll be blogging at different places over the next few weeks and will do my best to give you a heads-up. Tomorrow, I'll be over at Fresh Fiction talking about villains. Alden Pike, the villain in SWEET JUSTICE, is, in my opinion, one of the most hideous ones I've ever created. Come over to Fresh Fiction tomorrow and learn why my villains are so very very bad. I'll post the link tomorrow as soon as it goes up.

Also, over at Romantic Times, I'm in the author spotlight talking about SWEET JUSTICE and sharing a short SWEET excerpt. Here's the link:

Yesterday, I did an interview with Dawn over at WTF Book Review blog site and talked all things LCR. I'm giving away a signed copy of SWEET JUSTICE. Come on over and comment for a chance to win. Contest ends tomorrow!

Tuesday, September 6, is the official release day and the release day party will begin around 10:00 AM (CST). We'll have contests, fun, prizes and lots of laughs. So mark your calendar for the all day extravaganza!

Here's another interview I did recently with International Thriller Writers about SWEET JUSTICE and my writing process.

I'll be sending out a newsletter on Tuesday with the announcement of SWEET JUSTICE release. If you haven't signed up for my newsletter, you can subscribe from my website's home page, bottom right.

Okay, that's enough out of me. I'm headed back to do a bit more writing and then will take some time to just appreciate the beautiful sunshine and the last days of summer.

Wishing you and yours a happy happy holiday weekend. Stay safe and be sure to come back on Monday and recommend some great books!

Can't wait until Tuesday! I'm dropping the kids off at school for their first day and then driving to Barnes and Nobles, the only book store left that's close to me. It happens to be an hour round trip drive (pray I have no NY traffic that day!) but I know it will be so worth it in the end!

Have a great weekend everyone! Stay safe!

Christy Reece said...

Thank you, Shelly, you too. And so glad that you loved SWEET JUSTICE!

Christy Reece said...

Christy Reece said...

Thank you, Taryn for driving all that way to the bookstore. I heart you so much for doing that. I hope you love SWEET JUSTICE! Be sure to stop by for the release day party. Lots of prizes!

Hope the kids have a good first day of school!

Busy weeks ahead for you christy! Will try to catch you at the various blogs you will be at.

My pre-order of SWEET JUSTICE has already been sent from the UK so it should be at me early next week. Cannot wait.

The holiday for us next week is Thursday and I am looking forward to it.

Happy long weekend and I wish you loads of book sales :)
