Grand Opening of Romance Gems by @JoanReeves #RomanceGems

Welcome, one and all, to ROMANCE GEMS, a blog that will be written by 23 popular romance authors.

Who Are We?

Some of us are New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors. Some are Amazon bestselling authors, and some are award-winning authors.

All of us are Romance Readers as well as Romance Writers. We're like you. We're moms, wives/significant others, and friends.

We pay bills, juggle the family budget, take care of a home, cook—at least every now and then—worry about aging family members, get frustrated with technology, vent over situations that drive us crazy and that we probably can't change, love music, movies, TV shows, reading, and having a good time. Plus, we like to talk about all of that.

What Is Romance Gems?

I think ROMANCE GEMS—written out it's http://RomanceGems.blogspot.com—is going to be a pretty fabulous blog.

We want to put the focus on you, the Readers. We want you to talk with us.

Join the conversation and give us your 2 cents when you read each daily post. We'll talk about Life, Love, Books, Romance, Sex, Kids, and all the other really important things in your world.

Some chuckles and some good times await you so I hope you'll make a point to visit us each day.

Grand Opening Giveaway

Be sure and enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a Kindle Fire and Ebook Gift Bundles.

Every week, there will be a Comment & Win Random Drawing for an Amazon Gift Card.

To be entered in Comment & Win, all you have to do is read the post of the day—or any post you may have missed.

Then leave a comment with your email address written out. That means like Mary at yahoo dot com. (Don't leave your email as a "hot link" or web crawlers will harvest it and flood your Inbox.) The more comments you make; the greater your chance of winning.

All Month Long

The Rafflecopter and the Comment & Win runs for the whole month of February plus there may be Pop-Up Prizes too. Enter often and have fun chatting with us.

But Wait There's More

Here's a quick tour of the blog. In the left sidebar, you'll see where we also blog. Just click to visit any of those blogs. Below that you'll see tiny pictures of those who follow the blog. Click to follow so we can see your picture too.

Below that is the monthly schedule so you'll known when each of us blogs. There are surprise days too so be sure and drop by to see what's going on then.

The right sidebar shows some of our books. Click on any you find interesting, and you'll be taken to the "buy" page for the book.

On the menu bar, you'll see the link for MEET THE AUTHORS. Find out more about all of us including our mug shots. *g* More pages will be added in the weeks ahead.

We've also started a Facebook Page: Where Authors and Readers Meet, and you have an open invitation to join us. So come on by and hang with us for a while. There will probably be someone there to chat with.

Sum It Up, Joan

You'll find a Gem of an Author and a Gem of a Romance Novel here plus some witty writers and good conversation. Come join us.

Oh, and remember, enter the month-long Giveaway for Rafflecopter Giveaway.
