A Meet-Me Giveaway ~ Jean C. Gordon

Last month I shared pictures from a reader-author event I attended in Maryland. This month I'm inviting you to meet me and other authors of sweet romance -- L.B. Carter, Raine English, Elsa Kurt, Lucinda Race, and MJ Santangelo -- as well as more than 40 other romance authors at another reader-author event in Connecticut in August. And to sweetened the invitation, I am giving away one general admission ticket to the event. The ticket will admit you to the book signing from 12-3pm. It also includes a tote bag sponsored filled with book related goodies and a book from Waterhouse Press.


This event will be held on Saturday, August 3, 2019 at the premier Marriott Hotel in Trumbull, CT, a venue that combines small-town New England character and charm with local attractions, including Webster Bank Arena, Beardsley Zoo and The Maritime Aquarium, malls and restaurants, theaters and universities. It is located about an hour from NYC, a short drive from Metro North Railroad, and offers easy on and off highway access. New York or Connecticut airports are easily accessible. The participating authors hope that you’ll join us for our first journey into fangirling, book-boyfriends, and love for all things related to BOOKS! Come create memories with authors and friends.

All you have to do for a chance to win the ticket is to comment here on the blog that you want to participate in the random drawing or on my ticket giveaway post at the Sweet Romance Reads Mother's Day Party Event. You receive two chances if you comment on both. Good luck!


Note: After you click the party link, you must click GOING (rather than just "interested") to fully participate in the party and any giveaways.

Return to Indigo Bay this May!
Starting May 9, 2019 the Indigo Bay series continues with six new books in the spinoff Second Chance Romance series. Come fall in love with the small beach town that started it all...

Sweet Horizons
There’s nothing like a wedding to bring people together, but family dynamics can be complicated, especially newly blended ones. 

Sonja Cooper is thrilled that her daughter Lauren is marrying Jesse Brewster and giving her a ready-made granddaughter in the irrepressible 3-year old Shelley. The fact that Jesse is also Sonja’s business partner in the launching of the Morrison Mansion B&B is just a bonus.

Custom bike shop owner Jeff Brewster is also delighted that his son Jesse is marrying Lauren and building a new family. The one awkward aspect is the unexpected attraction he feels towards Sonja. For although Sonja feels the same spark, having been burned in her divorce from Lauren’s father, she’s determined never to be dependent on a man again.

Then the Indigo Bay Business Association pits Sonja and Jeff against each other by having their businesses compete for the coveted “New Business of the Year Award.” All’s fair in love and war, but hearts don’t always listen!

This is the 3rd novel in the Indigo Bay Second Chance Romances series, but all books can be read as standalones.


  1. I love meeting authors I enjoy reading. I was excited to meet my favorite writer at RWA years ago: James Rollins.

  2. Yes, there are authors I would enjoy meeting. :) I've been privileged to meet many already. I was so thrilled to meet Sandra Bricker in person many years ago at an ACFW conference. I simply adored her and her writing.

  3. Lovely. Jane Squires jrs0350@yahoo.com

  4. The first time I met an author I was very nervous.

  5. Sounds like a great book, Jean. And your author event with Raine and the other authors will be fun!

  6. I love meeting new authors! I've been following the RomantiConn event and would love to be entered into your drawing to win a ticket!
