Friday Fun Facts: Win a Prize! (or more than one...)

Hey everyone, The Romance Studio is holding a Valentine Gala from today through Tuesday, Feburary 14th. For the next 4 days, romance authors will be chatting and posting excerpts...and you can win a lot of great prizes! I'm giving away an Amazon Gift Card AND the winner's choice of any of my ebooks. Click here for the main Gala page (then click on "Party Giveaways" to see the list of all the prizes).

And tomorrow I'm joining my fellow Hudson Valley RWA authors at the Barnes and Noble in the Palisades Mall for an afternoon of meeting and chatting with readers and shoppers! Should be fun (as long as the weather holds...believe it or not, after an almost snowless winter, we might be getting some of the white stuff tomorrow).

Happy Weekend!

Writers' Wednesday: Listening to a Book

Yes, I skipped my Monday blog post....suffering from an awfully bad head cold that is making the rounds at work. Why, oh why, do people INSIST on coming to work when they're sick? I suppose I shouldn't fault the devotion of the students, maybe not even the other teachers either, but really, martyring yourself by dragging your sick self coughing to work is only going to spread around your lovely cold germs for the rest of us.


Well, I'm on the mend now, and anxiously awaiting the narrator demo tapes for the first of my 3 novels that will be produced as audio books this summer. When AudioLark started up a couple of years ago, and did my first 2, that wasn't an option, but now they let the authors have a listen to the narrators they're considering, and we get a say in who will read our words. How cool is that??
