Congratulations to Lisa of Ohio for winning this month's prize! Please come back August 25th for the next giveaway! And thank you all for dropping by and leaving such great comments!
The 25th of every month is my turn to blog, and sometimes (for example, Christmas), I write the blog early, knowing that I'll be busy on the 25th. Today is like that. Today I'm giving a speech at the Librarians Day luncheon at the RWA conference in Anaheim. (RWA is Romance Writers of America). Writing I can do. I'm all alone in my office, and that's a comfort for an introvert like me. But public speaking? Let's just say, I won't be eating much of that luncheon. My stomach will be in knots. But once I get started, I'll be all right. (That's what I keep telling myself!)
Later today, from 5-8 p.m., there will be a giant booksigning at the Anaheim Convention Center. I hope to meet some of you there! About five hundred authors are signing, and it's open to the public.(Although there is a parking fee at the convention center).
And now, the Great Alaskan Howard Hunt!! Yes, I just returned from Alaska, where I saw humpback whales, seals, sea otters, squirrels, moose, caribou, but I couldn't find Howard. Not that I really wanted to run into a grizzly bear! I did, however, find some of Howard's friends. I've posted a few photos here, but you can find more on my Facebook author page. And the highlight of the trip-- finding Howard's underwear!
Today, I'm giving away a signed copy of Sexiest Vampire Alive plus a signed coverflat of Howard's book, Wild About You. (That's the cover/artwork for the book coming out at the end of November.) Just leave a comment about Howard (boxers or briefs?) or Alaska (or wherever you've been this summer), and a winner will be selected at random. International entries are welcome. Good luck!
