Meeting Readers!


Congratulations to Juanita of Massachusetts for winning this month's contest! Thank you all for the great comments! Please come back next month on the 25th when I'll be giving away two more books! (Love at Stake 4 and 5). See you then!

I love meeting readers!  Recently, I accompanied my husband on a business trip to Europe, and I was fortunate enough to meet some of my readers. They all drove several hours to see me, and I really appreciate that! I gave each of them a signed copy of my latest release, How to Seduce a Vampire (Without Really Trying). In Nantes, France, Aurore took me to lunch at a creperie. So yummy!! We had a great talk, then walked about the center of town. When we went inside St. Nicolas church, we were in for a treat, since someone was playing the giant pipe organ.  A fabulous afternoon! Thank you, Aurore!

In Breda, Netherlands, I saw more readers. Valerie and her sister, Fabienne, drove in from Belgium, bearing gifts of Belgian beer and chocolate! We had a great lunch together in the town square. This was my second time to see them, and it's always a great pleasure!  The next day, Jolanda and Monique drove to Breda to see me. We ate giant slices of apple pie in the town square and toured the old cathedral.  And they brought more gifts!!  I have the sweetest readers in the world!

Now I'm back in Texas, and I hope to meet more readers soon.  I'll be at a cool event July 20-21 at the Lake Austin Spa. They even plan to have me do a Zumba class with some readers!  That should be interesting!  Here's the link, if you're interested in coming.

And don't forget the giant book signing at the RWA conference in San Antonio!! It's open to the public!  July 23rd, there will be over four hundred romance authors signing in one huge ballroom! Here's the link-- http://www.rwa.org/p/cm/ld/fid=564

For this month's contest, I'm giving away signed copies of books 2 and 3 of the Love at Stake series-- Vamps and the City and Be Still My Vampire Heart. That's two books for one winner, who will be chosen at random. International entries are welcome.  To enter, simply leave a comment below. If you don't include your email address, please remember to check back here in a few days to see if I have posted your name as the winner. Good luck!!

These would be awesome to have. I remember meeting you in 2013 and I am so glad I did :-)

OMG! so happy I saw this giveaway. I have been a constant reader with Kerrelyn since the beginning with How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire. I would love to win signed copies of books #2 and 3, they would just fill out my collection wonderfully. Kerrelyn is one of the few authors that I still have to read in book form. Love my Kindle but it's still not same as the feeling of a solid book in your hand waiting to turn the page to find out what's going to happen next. Thank you for the opportunity to win this giveaway.

First off, I cannot put the Love at Stakes series down, believe I have tried! Ever since I read How to Marry Millionaire Vampire I have been hooked! I honestly hope that you can go to at least 20 books, I know there is more characters who need to find love!!
If Casimir can find someone, anyone can!!! Thank you for continually writing these books and I hope to one day meet you so I can talk about them with you :)
Come to Tucson and I will buy lunch and talk books!

When I discovered the LOVE AT STAKE series, it changed my reading habits permanently. You are an AMAZING writer who isn't afraid to write what's on your heart. I have recommended your books to everyone I meet...seriously. My three daughters now read your books and love them!! Thanks for sharing your gift with the world and for helping me see beyond the status quo in literature.

I love your series. I'm almost finished with The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo and then I will start How to Seduce a Vampire (Without Really Trying). Your books are awesome!

Cherri said...

Hi Kerrelyn! I am so glad that you had a great trip in Europe and I think that it is so very awesome that you had lunch with some of your fans!! That would be so...wow...mind-blowing for me! :) As you know, I am a huge fan of yours and I love all of your books, but I think that How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire is still my favorite! I love Shanna and Roman!!! Ok, Vampire Mine is a very close second!!! Eat Prey Love was also fantastic!!! a switch to the vampires made this one of my faves as well. And who would not fall for Howard?? Wild About You was great! OK OK I know!!! ALL of your books are terrific! I love how you keep the same people around so we get updates on their lives after their story is told! I would love to read about Shanna & Roman's kids when they grow up! I can just see it now - all of the trouble that Constantine will cause & get in to!!! Oh, that is a story just begging to be told! hint hint

Julie Flores said...

Your vampire series is one of the best I have ever read. Your one of the very first authors that got me hooked on reading. Keep doing your thing, cause I'll buy anything you write. :)

I hope you return to the Netherlands someday when I'm not too broke from a recent trip to France, because then I will most certainly try to meet up with you.

Great pictures!

I love this series. Hoping to collect all the books!

Elisha Lapointe said...

I love your series! I don't even have to read what it's about. If it says by Kerrelyn Sparks, I'm pre-ordering it in book format (which by the way I only do for about 4 other authors). Once I start one of your books, I can't put it down! That's pretty much the highest complement I can give an author, considering I feel like I have book ADD sometimes and flip and flop through multiple at a time. I'd love to meet you! You should visit Canada...say Ontario...maybe even Ancaster. ;)

Steph F. said...

Love the pictures, so much fun. Hope you had a great trip, I'm little jealous, lol.
Love the series, one of my all time favorites.

I absolutely love this series since my friend introduced them way back in 2010.

Since then, I wished to complete all the books. And now, I only need 4 books (Vamps and the City, A Very Vampy Christmas, V is for VampWoman, and the still not available book in the place, How to Seduce a Vampire.) Well, I'm still hoping to have them all.

Keep writing!

That was awesome that your fans in Europe got to meet you. If you ever come to or close to Hampton, VA, I will definitely come to meet you! I love all of your books. The ones that I don't have paperback copies of, I have them on my phone so that I can have something to read wherever I am. I hope I get to meet you one day, and thank you for writing such a wonderful series!
