Scotland!!

Congratulations to Bella Boo, who won this month's contest! Thank you all for the lovely comments! Please come back next month--I'll have some photos of Scotland!! And I'll be giving away signed copies of The Vampire and the Virgin and Eat Prey Love! Meanwhile, you can follow the Scottish adventures on Facebook and Twitter.  See you next month!

Have any of you been watching the new television series, Outlander?  Jamie Frasier captured my heart years ago when I first read Outlander, back in 1991. But then you know that I have a thing for valiant young men in kilts (or valiant old vampires in kilts!).  One of the things I love most about the TV show is that we get to see Scotland. I've been fascinated with that country ever since I was a kid reading
Nancy Drew books and she traveled to Scotland (and solved a mystery, of course.) And I have Scottish ancestors, so I can't help but feel drawn there.

In September, I'll be traveling to Scotland with a group of writers.  You may know of a few of them-- Cathy Maxwell, Lorraine Heath, Elizabeth Essex.  We'll fly in together to Glasgow, and then take off to an old hunting lodge for a week. Of course, the only thing we'll be hunting is countryside, castles, and men in kilts! When we come back to Glasgow on Sept. 14, I hope to meet some of my readers. If you are able to attend our get-together, please let me know! I want to bring a signed book for everyone.

And since sadly, you can't all make it, I'll give away two signed books today.  One lucky winner will receive a signed copy of Secret Life of a Vampire and Forbidden Nights with a Vampire! Just leave a comment to enter. International entries are welcome. Good luck!!

Oh to be part of your luggage!!! I hope you have the most amazing time! I hope this means lots of new reads. I know DAMN IT BJ...I'm going for the men not for you..LOL

Truly I am happy for you. I have Ireland at the top of my huge bucket list followed closely by Scotland then the rest of the insane stuff I desire to do before I haunt this world. Because we all know Neither Heaven nor Hell will take me....So I'm going to have a wonderfully long life, followed by an even longer after-life.
Please flip a few kilts for me...Blame it on the Fae :)

Ramona Revis said...

I too have felt the draw of Scottish ancestry to the isles of Scotland and the Highlands. Independence, freedom of spirit, appreciation of beauty and stubborn determination seem to be genetic. Have a great trip and take lots of pictures.

Brenda Rumsey said...

Sounds like a great trip you have planned. Hope you have a wonderful time. Would love to win one of these books. Thanks for the chance.

Cherri said...

Hi Kerrelyn! You are so lucky to be able to go visit Scotland!! It is one place that has always fascinated me as well! I hope you have a great trip and I can't wait to see some pictures! Of both Scotland and the Vampires in kilts! :) Thanks for thinking of us that aren't able to travel with you or to meet you there! I think that is very sweet of you! :) I don't know if you need my email address, but here it is just in case cboitson@shaw.ca (I know previously we have had to leave it in the comments.) Have a great trip!!!!

Samantha Davenriner said...

Kathie Banks said...

Hi Kerrelyn! Thanks for the opportunity to win signed copies of 2 of your books. You are one of my favorite authors & I love the Love @ Stake series!! <3

Susan Randleman said...

I am trying so hard to post on here to let you know how much I love your books! I follow all your new releases! I'd so love to win the two books to share with my teen daughter, she's 17 and loves vampire paranormal romance and humor! You fit the bill to a T!! Even if I don't win I'm still following your wonderful books and introducing her to your books!! She's just a traditionalist and reads paper and I'm an e-reader girl! So we agree to differ. This contest would have brought us closer to the middle and bonded us over books we love!!

Paula said...

Love those vampires in kilts. I get excited every time I find out you have a new book being released - love them. Thank you for writing such an imaginative addictive series.

June M. said...

I love Cathy and you. But you know this. Cathy might run into some of the Chattan's.
And maybe you will see Angus and the other fellows. Have so much fun for me.
Thank you for the giveaway.

Coincidentally, You will be traveling to Scotland about the same time as when I traveled there last year for Study Abroad. Glasgow is Awesome, especially around Christmas and the people there are super friendly. There is a lovely market you should look into, but be prepared for lots of walking. Have fun on your trip, you will love it. I can't wait to return.

Wendy Norris Roberts said...

Mercedes Fernández González said...

Hi,
I was living in Scotland for about 22 months, working for Cisco Systems, and I fell in love with the country. I'm spaniard and from Asturias, a part of Spain quite similar to Scotland, so it was like being at home. I love the scots vamps and that they are still wearing the kilts, seriously sexy things. Hope you enjoy your trip there as I did.
Besos,
Merche

I was lucky enough to visit Edinborough back in the mid 80's as part of a college trip. What an amazing place, filled with so much history.

Ann Rae said...

Love all your books, have all of Love at Stake series, and even the historical romance. Im lucky enough to stay in Scotland, however the problem with all these absolutely gorgeous Highlanders, is the local lads struggle to match up. Looking forward to September :)

MsAwesome said...

Oh, to visit Scotland!! I have no idea how I became fascinated by all Highland things but now visiting Scotland is in my bucket list. And who wouldn't love a man with a brogue ;)
Have a safe and fun trip!!

I haven't been able to watch it no cable. :-( Hopefully it will go over big enough that it will wind up on Netflix so I can watch it!

April Morgan said...

I wish I could go to Scotland. That would be so awesome! I recently ordered the paperback copy of "Vamps and the City" about a week or 2 ago. I have the e-book, but I still like to have the physical copy. A signed copy would be even better! Lol

I read with sorrow that Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire would be the conclusion in the Love at Stake series. I will miss them all so much. So glad though if Russell gets his HEA. He has been such a great character!
