October 1 – Ack! Where did the summer go? Why didn’t I have one? Okay, I can answer that. Family stuff and book launch. But the trees are already turning and the nights grow cold—I’m not ready for fall, let alone winter.
Speaking of book launch- thanks to the reviewers at Paranormal Romance
in general and Amber in particular for making Legacy a top September pick.
Thanks to the folks at B & N book clubs, too, for featuring Legacy during the month of September. It’s all appreciated.
From Shelf Awareness and The Daily Camera:Congratulations
to Boulder Book Store, Boulder, Colo., which is celebrating its 35th anniversary, beginning today, with two weeks of events and promotions (and)…discounts of 20% for loyalty program members on most products in the store October 10-12. The store is also honoring Banned Books Week with a large window display... (above) and in-store displays.
35 years is quite a milestone for any independent. Congratulations.
Which leads me into a couple more pics taken during my recent signing trip:
Dusty Howard a new acquaintance met at MG and Suzanne and my youngest fan at M&I—Elizabeth loves the covers. I love Elizabeth. It was great fun meeting her. And Dusty and all who turned out during my SoCal junket. And a special thanks to my sis, Connie, who treated me to an afternoon of hair and make-up at Robert's Coiffures of Del Cerro
before the San Diego signing. What a great treat!
