Hello Happy Readers!
It’s been ages since we’ve chatted here, but that’s alllll about to change. I’ve spent a few months moving this behemoth of a site to a new server and getting things all spiffed up. Now we’re all set and I’ll be back here posting regularly. Yay! (Click on the RSS icon to add this blog to your feed so you get all the posts. Email subscription button to come!)
NEW YORK NEW YORK!
I’m in NYC this week having a blast at BookExpoAmerica!
I will be at BookCon this weekend, June 2nd & 3rd, which is open to the public. Click HERE to find out all about it.
I’m doing two signings at BookCon this weekend of my brand new Blue Hollow Falls book, BLUESTONE & VINE (be the first to get your hands on one, it doesn’t release until June 26th!)
On Saturday, June 2nd from 2-3PM, I’ll be signing copies of BLUESTONE & VINE along with other titles at Baker & Taylor (Booth 1321.)
On Sunday, June 3rd from 2:45-3:45PM, I’ll be signing copies of BLUESTONE & VINE along with other titles at the Candy Crushes Signing in the Harper Collins Meeting Room 2175. (This is a ticketed event. See BookCon link above for info.)
PANEL DISCUSSION: “Romance & the Resistance”
I’m also speaking on a panel at BookCon on Sunday, June 3rd from 1:30-2:15PM (Room #1E16). Other authors on the panel include Sarah MacLean, KM Jackson, Roni Loren, and Aya de Leon. The panel is being moderated by New York Times Book Review Editor, Tina Jordan. It promises to be a lively time!
You can get more info on that panel HERE.
I hope if you’re in the city, you’ll stop in and say hello and pick up some fun summer reads while you’re at it! Tell me you’d like a “BLUESTONE & VINE surprise” and I’ll have a special goodie for you! (While supplies last!)
The fun actually started last night and OMG!
Thanks to Alex, the Director of Social Media & Digital Sales from my fab publisher (Kensington Books, my other family!) snagging me an invite, I had the fun opportunity to attend the Amazon shindig.
See the blank space in that photo above? That was where my name tag was sitting. I know!
You know. Just me and some of my closest pals, hanging out in NYC. Like you do. NBD.
HA! I knew I’d make a complete fool of myself if I so much as passed anywhere Ronan Farrow, he of Pulitzer Prize winning fame and one of the prettiest men on the planet. (OMG!!)
So…it was a night!
I also had the chance to meet up with Sarah MacLean before our big panel talk on Sunday. (Thanks Abby West for playing photog!) If you haven’t tried out her books (and what am I saying, of course you have) then RUN, do not walk. Thank me later!
More adventures to be had while I’m here. I’m heading out to schmooze at my publisher’s BEA shindig this evening at the TimeWarner building. If there’s any Star Sightings, I’ll be sure to share them here with you first!
It’s good to be back on the blog and back chatting with you! I look forward to us having a more regular conversation!
