On January 23rd, 2012, I’m doing a booksigning at the Paseo Verde library in Henderson–
280 S. Green Valley Parkway
Henderson, NV 89012
I am so excited, and would love your help spreading the word. This is only my second booksigning and I’m nervous as can be, so come support me so I don’t look lonely at my table. I’ll also be selling copies of Highland Destiny there as well. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
And in just as exciting news, there’s a great new review of Highland Destiny over at Day Dreaming which you can read HERE
My favorite line is “Two simple words can sum it up—LOVED IT! Connor MacRae is a wickedly sexy highlander who knows how to make me purr…”
Just a reminder that Amethyst Heat is still free at New Concepts Publishing right now. You can read it online here
Amethyst Heat is also up at goodreads, just in case you’d like to rate/review it
As some of you guys may have noticed, on twitter, I’ve been the “Fabio Hussy” for the past couple weeks. I thought I’d share why. I found this book for cheap and cracked up at the fact that Fabio is the author. Well, I just had to read it. My friends teased me to no end, I still get random Fabio tweets (I’m lookin’ at you, Ren, Ang, and Gigi). So in case any of my lovely followers were wondering about the Fabio avatar, this review should sum it all up:
Oh Fabio, Why oh why did you decide to write?
The front page says “In Collaboration with Wendy Corsi Straub” so we know Fabio didn’t actually write this book, but the best part is that he wrote more than just one book!
I can’t do this book justice in a review, so I’m posting all my tweets and status updates as a review for you guys. (I saw this review here and had to pick it up when I saw it for a dime)
My review, sort of:
The cover: The bike and leather tells me he’s Dangerous, but the sexy Fabio abs tell me he’s sexy too
I see nothing but the smoldering look he’s giving me..read me, love me, I am Italian studmuffin Fabio
Fabio thinks Fabio has sexy abs. You want to touch Fabio. Come here and run your fingers on Fabio
*yes all that mane of hair that blows in the non-existent wind.
*I think Fabio’s manly sexiness was too much and she swooned
*this book is so awful, but soo funny
*No! I haven’t met him, but if I ever see Fabio I will talk to him in only third person “Laurie loved Fabio’s book. Laurie would like a pic”
*anyone who thinks Fabio actually wrote this is crazy. We all know he stood around looking all Fabio-ish in his open Pirate shirt, showing his man cleavage and wearing leather pants while some poor woman tried to make sense of his words.
*I can’t take Fabio seriously, I just can’t!
*I’m sad, not once has anyone said “I can’t believe it’s not butter”
*Fabio thinks Fabio has sexy abs. You want to touch Fabio. Come here and run your fingers on Fabio
*it reminds me of a Saturday night live skit. It’s like the book makes fun of Fabio and he’s so intense and serious about it!!
*Fabio knows romance-I give the ladies not just 1 but 2 Fabios! because if 1 Fabio is sexy, 2 Fabios are double the sexy
“please, let me make love to you.” her reply was a single heated word:”Yes.” oh the cheesy Fabioness of it
This was a super fun read. Oh, don’t get me wrong the writing was awful, and Fabio’s ideas of what passes for a romance novel + romantic suspense plot were just crazy, but it was so fun to read. If you see this one for cheap, pick it up for the tongue-in-cheek entertainment value.
Dont’ take this book seriously, you will be disappointed.
At my local RWA chapter we had cover model Jimmy Thomas come by and give a presentation about branding. Not only was it incredibly informative, it was great fun staring at Jimmy Thomas for a few hours 😉
I did want to share a couple of the pictures we took, and to remind everyone you can all find me on facebook now. My fanpage is linked by the facebook button on the right side.
I’m so close to finishing my novella, Highland Games, and as soon as I hear anything I’ll post about it here, twitter, facebook, heck– I’ll be screaming from my roof! So once I have something worth sharing, don’t worry, you will find out.
In the past week I was over at Bona Fide Reflections for an interview, giveaway and guest post…it was a blast being the author of the week 🙂
On Nov. 2nd I’ll be at a new blog called http://samsawesomness.blogspot.com/ and there will be a giveaway there too.
But as I promised you, pictures of Jimmy Thomas and me 🙂
For all who know the Book Vixen, she’s due any day now to have her baby. While she’s on maternity leave I offered to write a guest post for her blog. My question to you is what would you like to hear about?
I’ve written about “Highlanders” and I’ve written enough mini biographies about myself that I’d like to do something new. So let me know what you’d like me write about. Feel free to answer me on goodreads, or here, I read both. And let me know what you prefer.
My ideas so far are to write a bit about the novella I’m working on called Highland Games or to maybe do a story started from a picture and have everyone add a bit on. I could even do a Q&A session with it.
