Last week, I attended my 12th RT BOOKLOVERS CONVENTION held this year in Vegas. I don’t gamble, so the casino atmosphere wasn’t appealing, but surrounded by free books, bags and swags, I couldn’t contain my giddiness. I mailed home three boxes of books that wouldn't fit into my suitcases. Oh, the joy of reading non-stop for hours, discovering new authors and intrigued by mesmerizing plot twists. Wait! I have writing deadlines, research to do and promotions to set up. Big sigh.
Things are about to get creative if I’m to finish my upcoming release while reading Unoma Nwankwor’s He Changed My Name, oh and then there is Lenora Worth’s story in the Spring Brides anthology. Okay, what about Fried Pickles and the Fuzz by Calico Daniels? I feel a surge of energy.
By the way, I give away a lot of my goodies: inspirational books to a community youth outreach ministry; a mixture of genres to a former coworker, family and friends, and if my boxes arrive within the next week, I would like to give away a bundle to a book-a-holic. Leave a comment and your name will go into my drawing. This offer ends Monday night at midnight CDT.
Are you a voracious reader? How many books do you read in a week? If you’re an author, how do you get in your reading?
