We had the best time last Saturday at Monkey & Dog Books recognizing Romance Bookstore Day. Thanks to Allison Fitzgerald who graciously welcomed us and to Don who helped me set up banner. (I need to get a better stand that’s easier to do, and gosh it’s probably time to get a new banner.)
Here are some pics. Look at the great job Bob did putting together my table. (I was fighting with the banner.)
Here’s me doing what I love reading from one of my books. In this case TAINTED.
Here’s the group: Julie Miers, Sue & Gus Guthrie, me, Allison Fitzgerald, Lilia Briseno, and Alice Posey. Thank you for coming.
And here’s a video that Itsy Bitsy Book Bits put together for me. (If you’re an author, you might want to check out their offerings. https://itsybitsybookbits.com/)
I’ve completed the Front and Back Matter for COMPROMISE. I’ve set November 4 as a release date. I think I can have the book up for pre-order for several weeks before that. My Newsletter September 16 will spotlight the Cover Reveal. I cannot wait to show you. It’s quite different from all my others. You know my former Cover Artist, who I loved got too busy with her “real” job to keep up with her cover business, so I was forced to look elsewhere. Elsewhere is 100 Covers. I think you’ll like the look. For the first look at the cover, sign up for my Newsletter. MRW Press LLC (list-manage.com)
On September 15, I’m speaking to the Greater Keller Women’s Club. Their book club is reading TAINTED and discussing it on the 20th. I had to send them Discussion Questions. I’ve never done that before, so I hope they work for them. Excited to do another in-person presentation.
What kind of in-person events are you attending these days? People were masked at the book-signing, but we took them off for the picture. What about restaurants? All my fingers and toes are crossed we can go to Maine the first of October, even if I have to keep a mask on the entire time and can only pick up food to eat at our rental. This is our 50th Anniversary trip, so I really hope Maine doesn’t decide those of us in Texas can’t come. States did that last year, but now we have the vaccine.
