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).
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.
It was a great crowd of more than 100 women. I donated $1 from every Lauren Clark book sold to the Make-A-Wish foundation! At last count, the event raised more than $10,000 from one lunch. Not bad for a few hours!
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 written 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
