|Do I know goofy videos, or what?!|
It all started with a perfectly innocent post about how to effectively pack for a trip to nationals. It was shortly before the RWA national convention in 2011, and I had been invited by the lovely Lady Scribes to do my first guest post. It was actually surprisingly popular (who knew?), and I was delighted when I was asked to join as a fulltime member.
I quickly discovered what a wonderful community it was to be a part of. Over the years, you’ve shared my excitement when I sold my first three book deal, when my first book hit the shelves (including the ensuing music video of some awkward dancing through the, aisles of Barnes & Noble), and when my second book released and I made my goofy cooking video .
You’ve been there as I reminisced about my childhood trips to my grandparents’, about the books that sparked a lifetime love affair with reading, and about that time I met Colin Firth ;)
You’ve laughed with me as I’ve confessed to the truth behind the smiling vacation pictures, as well as when I revealed why I hate the beach so much. You may have even cried with me when I shared the story behind why I will always love snoopy.
Thanks so much for sharing the fun, laughter, tears, and triumphs. It’s been such a great two years being part of the Lady Scribes, and I am so grateful to have been a part of such an awesome community of readers and writers. I’ll be bidding adieu after this, my final blog, but I do hope to drop by and say hello to you all in the comments of future blogs. Though I’ve decided to step back from the time commitment of blogging, I do hope that you’ll still join me either on Twitter, Facebook, or even my website. I always love hearing from and chatting with friends and soon-to-be-friends alike, so please be sure to say hello! Also, feel free to sign up for my newsletter to keep up with the latest :)
FLIRTING WITH FORTURE doesn’t hit the shelves until September 3rd, but I’ll be sending the prize package to the lucky winner the very moment I receive my author copies (usually a week or two ahead of release).
To be eligible, leave a comment with you email address, or if you don’t wish to publicize your address, leave a comment, then email me your address privately to firstname.lastname@example.org. Open to US/Canada/Mexico. Winner will be drawn Wednesday Aug 7 at 9pm CT. GOOD LUCK!
Ah, dear reader. What can I say? It's so hard to say goodbye... (seriously, my last chance to get a 90's reference in on this blog - what did you expect??) LOL - Love you all!
