I know, you’re asking yourself. “Why is she telling me about this so soon?”

I have to. Please, hear me out on this.

I know, it’s spring and the event takes place in the fall. I know, we all have busy schedules, but it’s also important to do something kind for ourselves. It’s time to be good to you, right? Come to the event! There will be prizes and gifts. Great food. And wonderful speakers, like the amazing Jill Shalvis. And did I mention free books? A LOT of FREE BOOKS!

If you happened to sit at my hosted table last year, you would have received this goody bag. IMG_4785 (Edited)
I added a custom candlIMG_4789e that is linked to my Knights of the Swan series. A mystical blend of rosemary, sage, lavender, and sweetgrass.

Since the series has to do with a secret brotherhood and they use the symbol of the swan, I added a sterling silver necklace created by Kevin N Anna. IMG_4790AIMG_4791nd who doesn’t love coloring in medieval themed books?

And of course, BOOKS!

So raise a glass to honor your loved one, or yourself with a toast for eternal love. Read a book that offers hope and celebrates the power of love. And treat yourself to an afternoon of romance.

And that, my friends, is only the tip of this fun event.

Most of all there will be authors who want to say, “Thank you for reading our stories, loving our characters, and allowing us to carry you away for just a few moments.”

The Davie Conference Center is located in Layton, UT. http://www.davisconferencecenter.com/   If you want to spend the evening you don’t even have to step outside to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn.http://hiltongardeninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/utah/hilton-garden-inn-salt-lake-city-layton-SLCLAGI/index.html

But don’t wait too long. I have to tell you that the tables are filling up. Our readers know this is a great event and they are clamoring to claim their seat. Won’t you join us?

Let the Games Begin

This coming year is going to be quite busy. Lots of learning.  And being active on social media.

I’m still getting the hang of changes to my website theme. WordPress.com has evolved in many beautiful ways.  So many buttons and widgets, customization has become easier.

Lots of learning about adding my own artistic touches. I’ve been having some fun with depositphotos.com. So many lovely photos to choose from.

Just remember to SAVE it before you change to the next best thing to learn.

And one last thing that I dearly love. Grammarly. It works in the background, especially on social media. It’s like a little fairy, watching over those fat-finger typos that tend to slip by.

Time is of the essence, I must remember to click on save before heading on to the next rabbit to chase.I’ve three books coming out in 2017. I think time management will need to be on my To Do List for 2017. I’ll let you know if I find anything new.

 

 

 

KNIGHT SECRETS is Featured in a Goodreads Giveaway 12/30-1/9, 2017

Knight Secrets

Pre-Sale for March 28, 2017

KNIGHT SECRETS will be featured in a Goodreads giveaway running from  12/30-1/9, 2017 https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/217225-knight-secrets

Sworn to protect the crown, a Knight of the Swan must never surrender—not even to love . . .

England, 1415. Ordered never to leave the lonely tower on her family estate, Lady Clarice Margrave is suddenly set free when her home is plundered. Now she is determined to discover the truth behind her father’s alleged treason. But an act of daring only propels her into a new prison, with the very knight who destroyed her home as her keeper. Sir Ranulf, Lord of Sedgewic, is ruthless in his inquisition, though there is a searing tenderness in his touch. Is it possible her bold jailor is the Red Wolf of whom her father spoke—and the one man she might be able to trust?

As a knight, Ranulf never questions his troth, but his beautiful prisoner stirs his heart and mind like no other. Clarice is achingly vulnerable—and extremely closed-mouth about her possible ties to the plot against the king. Duty demands he keep his distance, though he yearns to take her to his bed and adore her until he discovers what lies within her heart. And he would—if he weren’t in danger of losing his own . . .
