Book Club, Book Signing

Meeting Greg Iles, Make-A-Wish & Fairhope Fun

It’s been a whirlwind week!

It began Tuesday evening with a fun and (always) informative book club night @ Page & Palette in Fairhope, where the fantastic book store employees there talk about hot new novels and give away ARCs (Advance Reader Copies). IMG_1752

Here are my winnings ~ I can’t wait to read them, especially The Truth and Other Lies, which is supposed to have a deliciously evil main character!

Later in the week, I spent part of Thursday at the Fairhope Yacht Club signing Lauren Clark books.

Thursday evening was also Ladies Night in Fairhope, where I shopped with IMG_1726four of my friends. We were given special tote bags, treats, and refreshments at many of the cute shops.

Friday evening was the best treat of all, when two of my friends and I travelled back to Page & Palette in Fairhope, Ala. to hear Greg Isles speak. He is a Natchez, Mississippi author who has GI IMG_1737 IMG_1735written many bestselling books, including his latest, The Bone Tree, and Natchez Burning. He spoke about the accident which took his leg and changed his life, the band he’s in with Stephen King, and his writing and publishing life. He was funny, entertaining, and spoke to a full house of enthusiastic fans.

Next week, I’ll be in Dallas, Texas for the RT Conference (Romantic Times Conference) and will be reporting in from there!

Have a fantastic week!  ~ Laura
