Hello from the Holy City, friends! I’m here in Charleston at a fun conference and, secretly, hoping to spot a cast member from Southern Charm. Aren’t any of them writers? Maybe they need a writer on the show. I know one who is here right now… Maybe if I casually dropped into Shep’s new bar… If you don’t watch Southern Charm, you really should. You can’t make that stuff up. Seriously.
Y’all have heard me talk about my fabulous friend, Ann Garvin. I actually met her very fatefully at this very PubSense conference in Charleston last year. You already know that she’s a great author, but she’s also a nutritionist and professor. (She makes me tired!) She has written a totally inspiring and informing e-book, How to Eat Healthy (and feel better) Without Killing Yourself. And she’s giving it away for FREE. All you have to do is sign up for her newsletter at anngarvin.net. You’ll be all fresh and shiny for summer!
Also, a bit of giveaway news:
Reading with Robin is giving away a copy of DEAR CAROLINA via Go Local Prov. All you have to do is comment on her fabulous favorite titles for Spring article to enter!
Jenny O’Regan is giving away two advance copies as well. Search for her on Facebook to enter to win!
Last but not least, my publisher is giving away 20 copies of DEAR CAROLINA on Goodreads! Real live copies, not advances! I’m super jealous because I have yet to see one of these… Maybe I should enter to win! Click here to enter!
If you’re not sure about your luck or need a great Mother’s Day present for a Mom in your life, with the launch a little over five weeks away, this is the perfect time to pre-order! Excited to see DEAR CAROLINA is now available for pre-order at one of my faves: Target!
And… I’m so happy to share this wonderful review of DEAR CAROLINA in the Romantic Times! This is one of my “wishlist reviews,” but actually getting it was a little nerve-racking, since, of course, it might not be good. So thanks a million to B.Nakia Garner for a wonderful review!
Happy, happy week to all of you, sweet friends. Thanks for bearing with me through these last few weeks. Things are getting exciting! I’m taking a little break and off to do some quick King Street shopping. Does anyone need anything?
