As you are reading this I’m attending Fall in Love in New England with many of my fellow Romance Gems authors. It’s a reader / author event where we spend the weekend mixing, mingling and talking about all genres of romance books. It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since our last get together. I was fortunate to meet a few other amazing authors, Nancy Fraser, Annette Blair, Lynn Jenssen and Christine Mazurk to name of few. I can't wait to meet some of our #Romancegems in person this year...
So, you may be wondering what exactly goes on at this event? For starters authors do a special giveaway, charms. I found this to be especially fun to see each charm the authors came up with to depict a book. This year I used the covers of my new trilogy as the charms.
What else do we do? There are sessions open to readers and authors alike. We play games, have open question and answer sessions and basically revel in romance books. What’s not to love when you get to see old friends and make new ones who are passionate about your favorite thing too, reading.
I like to hand out recipe cards based on The Loudon Series. Sharing my favorite pumpkin bread and a cookie recipe, triple chocolate Romeo's, is something Cari would do at What’s Perkin.
Which brings me to something fun:
Every Day is Treat Day in October. To be entered in the random drawing for Lost and Found, leave a comment with your email address written out (not as a hot link). I’ll be giving away a signed print copy if the winner lives in North America or an e-book anywhere else in the world. The deadline for doing this is 2 days from now. I’ll draw the name on October21 and notify the winner by email. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post.
By the way, in case you wonder why Authors give away books, it’s simple. We give away books to introduce new Readers to our writing. The best way to thank an Author who gives you a book is to post a review. Just a few sentences saying why you liked the book is all that is needed! Do this, and we’ll adore you!
