Life Happened and You Get a Giveaway!

Okay so I know that I have been quiet for a few weeks...I apologize for that! But in my defense, life happened in a big way and I've been just trying to play catch up.

SO, first, I went to RomCon in Denver and had a great time talking to readers, bloggers and authors. I also got to meet Kasi Alexander, fellow Omnific author, and author of one of my favorite books, Becoming sage. Kasi and her family were so great and she gave me a beautifully signed copy of her book along with some awesome jewelry that they made. Thanks, Kasi!

Then I had a girls' weekend with some of my closest girlfriends. We spent the weekend laughing and talking and lying in the sun. We also saw The Help (which was our last book club book - and I will be posting the review of both the book and movie soon!).

The day after I got back from my little getaway my kids started back to school! This is the one that gets me the most bogged down because I can't believe that my kids are as big as they are, and I'm not happy about it! My daughter is in third grade now (and you can probably tell by the shoes, thinks that she's 16!) and my baby is in second grade...where did the time go?

And speaking of my baby...he started playing football - like real tackle football - this year and had his first game this past weekend. He made an amazing tackle, and I may have jumped up and yelled, "That's my baby!" I have since been told that I was not supposed to do that, but there is no stopping a proud mom!

I almost forgot the girls and I were lucky enough to get a Meet & Greet with the 100 Monkeys before their concert last week. It was so fun hanging out with all my favorite ladies for a night, but I've quickly discovered, after getting home at 1AM, that I'm too old for that kind of thing!

To top things off, in between all of this crazy somewhere, I got an email from a local bookstore that they wanted me to do their "Local Author Showcase" on October 11! I will definitely be posting more information about this as it gets closer, but if you live in the Salt Lake area, come and see me at The King's English.

This would be where the giveaway mentioned would come in! I will have to read an excerpt from Indivisible at the Showcase. I want your suggestions for what I should read. It is a 5 minute reading (that's a loooong time!)and I live in Utah - so it can't be one of the more racy passages?? I will take suggestions until September 15th and then I will randomly draw a name from all the suggestions and you will receive copies of both Summer Lovin' Anthologies (my story is in the Heat Wave - which I will sign). So leave your suggestions in the comments (just describe the scene for me - you don't have to have word for word or anything...) and I will be so very grateful!!

Promise next post will be my review of The Help (both book and movie!).
