I’m part of several giveaways. Take a look at them and see if you’ve read the book I’m offering or any of the other authors presented a book you’d love to read!
For the scifi lover in all of us. ‘Selected’ is part of the offering, but they have more than YA books you can check out. The promotion runs from November 1st- November 20th. So mark your calendars. I’ll remind you in my November newsletter (scheduled for November 13th).
What better way to celebrate Halloween than reading a novella that takes place on that supernatural night in Savannah? This promotion runs through October 30th. Grab your copy today. There are 131 books to choose from…Wow! ‘The Ultimate Act of Love’ was inspired by a ghost tour I took in Savannah during Authors After Dark.
You’ve got to admit, this graphic is sexy. Here’s another chance to grab‘Nightshade’ if you haven’t already. This promotion runs through November 5th. 137 titles are available for you to consider.
M.L. Guida and I shared a table at the Penned conference in St. Louis last month. We gave away a Kindle. Here we are with the lucky winner (Yes, one of my readers). Congrats, Annie! Next year I’ll have my own table at Penned Conference. I just have too many books to be sharing a table.
I went to Mexico with my friend, Jackie. Her husband hates the heat, so we head south once a year for the last twenty years together. Each morning we go hiking up the foothills outside my resort and celebrate each night with amazing food. It’s the same hiking path I took when I first started writing and the women from the Worlds Apart series talked to me.
It was great meeting Cecilia at ‘Show Me Your Books’ and seeing her again at Penned Con.
Here are my conference dates for next year. I hope to see as many of you as possible.
In 2020 I’ll be returning to Weekend with the Authors and Literary Love, Savannah.
Release Date: October 16, 2018
One of my favorite things about attending conference is meeting new friends/readers. Many I communicated with via Facebook, but it’s special meeting them face-to-face.
I met Mary at the 2013 Romcon in Colorado Springs. She came to surprise me and another Author in Phoenix in 2015. Well, my day was made when Mary was attending a wedding in Kansas City and came to the Marriott specifically to see me. She’s a dear friend and I didn’t want to let her go.
On of the advantages of being short is being front and enter when a group photo is taken. This was the first ‘Show Me Your Books’ and we had an incredible collection of authors. I was proud to be part of the group.
Attending conference is always a lot of fun. It’s wonderful meeting my readers and gaining new ones. At Literary Love: Savannah, Savannah Verte (in the big red hat) and I co-sponsored a lunch table. The readers were given cute fascinator hats Savannah picked up in New Orleans. Two of our readers bugged out before the photo was taken. Naturally, I wore my purple fascinator!
At Literary Love: Savannah, I was also on 3 panels (PNR, YA, and scifi/fantasy/UF). I enjoyed listening to panel discussions when I attended conferences as a reader and was thrilled to participate in these 3 panels. This was the PNR panel which included Laura Hawks and Milly Taiden.
Conference are also an opportunity to network with fellow authors and do some business. An industrious reader caught me and Jennifer Wentworth having a quick meeting related to the new scifi series I will be releasing in October/November/December. I posted this picture on Facebook and someone asked if I had fallen. It was actually more comfortable talking and taking notes sitting on the floor than sitting on the chair.
At Once Upon a Book in Frankenmuth, Michigan it was a lot of fun dressing up as a Greek Goddess. That’s my roommate at the convention Laura Hawks with me. Yes, I know I’m not in purple or have my fascinator on. It felt strange!
Last year I attended SWFL SpaceCon and participated in a panel entitled ‘Romance in Science Fiction’.
This year I was happy to attend again and participated in two panels ‘World Building’ and ‘The World of Publishing’.
Like last year, it was fun to talk with attendees and check out the costumes many of the attendees wore.
I also had a fan girl moment with Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troy).
Shantel attended both years as well and purchased ‘Selected’ last year and picked up the other 2 books at this year’s conference. She was amazed I recognized her from last year. Her makeup job was incredible.
This summer I traveled to Cocoa Beach to be part of the Space Coast Book Lovers conference. I had only participated in the book signing last year and was attending the whole conference this year.
One of the great things about traveling to conferences are checking out the local attractions.
Before we headed to NASA Kennedy Space Center, ML Guida, Susan Hayes, and reader Suzanne and I had breakfast. Our waitress was nice enough to take our photo before we headed out.
The Kennedy Space Center was incredible. I got to pilot the space shuttle Atlantis (sort of).
The whole conference was a lot of fun, including the book signing. Elizabeth won the lavender gift set and I got to meet a number of new readers. Tiffany told me she’s obsessed with the worlds I built in my novels. That warmed my heart!

She lamented over a ghost lover she could never have.
The last thing Kori Daniels expected to witness on a ghost tour was an actual apparition. Although she felt earth-bound spirits, she had never seen one. Already impacted by nightly amorous dreams since arriving in Savannah, her dream lover now has a face.
Jeb Crawford stares out of his front parlor window waiting for the one night a year he takes physical form. Each Halloween, he searches for the one woman, his soul mate, who can save him from his fate.
Only an ultimate act of love will bring Jeb back to life.
This novella was originally part of the limited edition set ‘Haunting Savannah’.
Although I have not completed the fifth and final book in the Nightshade Saga series, I have the cover. This model just IS Drake! I was so happy with the cover, I ordered a new table cover. How do you like it?
