We're moving to Austin! I've hinted at it, said it on Twitter and Facebook, but now I know for sure it's happening. The movers are coming on August 19th, and we are out of here! There's a lot we'll miss about Ohio, for sure, but we're so excited to settle into our new home in the Live Music (and Romance and Barbecue and Whole Foods) Capital of the World!
I especially can't wait to join the Austin RWA chapter. This will be my first ever experience with belonging to a brick-and-mortar chapter, interacting face to face with other members at meetings and stuff, and I'm thrilled. Online chapters like RWAOL and PASIC are great places to meet authors from all over the world--but for someone moving to a brand new city? I'm very much looking forward to making some connections in my new hometown. Austin RWA looks like a vibrant, active chapter with a good mix of pre-published writers and some of my favorite authors, like Sherry Thomas and Julia London. How cool is that? I'll have to be careful not to fangirl all over them at my first meeting. We'll see how it goes.
To celebrate my move (and to aid in the ongoing Operation: Office Excavation) I'm giving away an adorable red leather purse full of books! Ten, to be exact.
Books in the giveaway include:
ON THE STEAMY SIDE by Louisa Edwards (signed by me!)
LOUP GAROU by Mandy M. Roth (signed by author)
BLOODY GOOD by Georgia Evans (signed by author)
RED FIRE by Deidre Knight
HUNT HER DOWN by Roxanne St. Claire
MOON CALLED by Patricia Briggs
THE HEARTBREAKER by Carly Phillips
THE RULES OF SEDUCTION by Madeline Hunter
LOVER UNBOUND by J.R. Ward
BED OF ROSES by Nora Roberts
To enter, simply comment on this post with the title and release date of my next book! (Hint: it's the one with the chocolate-dipped strawberries on the cover. ; ) I know, tricky question, right?) The contest will run through Tuesday, August 17th; I'll randomly select the winner and mail the prize out on Wednesday.**
Good luck! This cute bag has some great stuff in it; you'll be able to finish Summer Beach Read season in style...
