It’s an awesome giveaway event
Feb 20 – Feb 27
Many people celebrate this romantic day with their loved ones. Whether it’s with chocolate, flowers, jewelry or simply a heart-felt “I Love You”, everybody, I think, has a soft spot for romance in their life. Some are lucky and find that special loved one and they are fortunate to spend a lifetime together. Sometimes that lifetime is not as long as we’d like. But every moment is to be treasured.
That’s what I adore about the Romance genre. It’s all about that happily ever after, however long it’s meant to be. It’s about finding that person, or persons, that makes our heart thump faster. That steals our breath when they walk in the room. That holds our hand when we need comfort.
In the world of fiction, Romance spans time and comes in all shapes, sizes and forms. The Year of Romance Giveaway offers a glimpse into all of these areas.

We lucked out on the weather (again) and had a sell-out crowd (again). And of course lots of laughs and fun (again.)
Here’s a few highlights:
I sat on my first convention panel with some wonderfully talented authors. Frankly, being among them was a major fan-girl moment for me. We chatted about Erotica to Make You Sweat to a wonderfully packed room. It was a blast! Actually, it was HOT!
Opal Carew, Zoe York, me, and Sasha White (from left to right in the image).
I also played bondage games with the good “doctor’ and led by Pub-Craft Romance Specialist Romance Specialist. Hmm… I wonder if I could have asked my PA to take my place in the games:? 😉 The team was working on tying the doctor up while I was talking notes for my next book… 😉
Next up was the Author Speed Dating. Holy freakin’ cow! Trying to talk to each other from across the table in a room with about 60 other people doing the same. Two minutes on the clock before you had a new person to talk to. Met lots of potential new readers. Got to see friends and almost lost the ability to speak by the end! LOVED IT!
And then of course, the author signing. Luck was on my side. I found myself sitting next to (fan girl moment) Stacey Kennedy. She is such a super nice person. We chatted in between meeting with fans and discovered we had lots in common. I want to offer a very sincere thankyou to everyone who stopped by my end of the table to chat and buy one or more of my books. Your support and loyalty is what gives me the courage to continue.
The whole experience of this event is difficult to explain if you haven’t experienced it. It’s a few short days of loads of activities that take months of planning. Lots of one-on-one opportunities to talk with readers and other authors. Plenty of smiles and laughter and a really, really good time. But I want to thank Eve Langlais for the time, effort, and dedication she puts into this event. Everybody always has a wonderful time. Friendships are re-established and new ones made. Spending time with people we often only chat with on line is truly unbelievable and I, for one, value every moment of it.
