Hope you all enjoyed a great Labor Day weekend! Mine was mostly spent laboring (heh) on book two of my 2010 trilogy, since I’m nearing deadline in a little over three weeks. Also happening in three weeks? The release of A Lady of Persuasion on September 29th! I can’t wait for readers to read Toby and Bel’s story.

And if you’d like to be among the first to read it, click on over to the Borders TrueRomance blogthis morning. There’s a little video that book buyer extraordinaire Sue Grimshaw taped with me during the RWA conference in DC. And I’m blogging about the writing of Surrender of a Siren. Best of all, if you comment, you could win a full set of the trilogy!

More links from the Department of Random Awesomeness:

Can you believe mega-bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson took my little book on her summer vacation? Yes, she read Goddess of the Hunt and liked it and added to the Book Club portion of her website! How cool is that? I was completely stunned and so honored. (There’s a little blurb there by Vicki–if you use a browser other than IE, you might have trouble viewing it because it’s light on a light background. You can highlight the text, and then it should show up.)

And Rakehell.com posted a great review of Surrender of a Siren the other day.

It’s just a few weeks until the release of Courtney Milan‘s fantabulous debut novella, This Wicked Gift, published in the Heart of Christmas anthology with a few authors you might have heard of….Mary Balogh and Nicola Cornick, anyone? Go to Courtney’s site to learn more about the book and enter for a chance to win a copy! Also giving away copies is the fantabulous Sherry Thomas, of the mad query writing skillz. (And, um, not to be a copycat, but I intend to be giving away copies too! When A Lady of Persuasion releases. So if you don’t win any of these, come back around here in three weeks. Or just go buy it, ’cause you know you want to.)

Lastly, I am going to be signing books and (eek!) speaking at my local RWA chapter meeting this Saturday morning! Our afternoon speaker? You might have heard of her. Little-known author by the name of Linda Howard? Yes, my life is charmed.

Wow, that was a lot of name-dropping! Sorry. 🙂
Feel free to name-drop in the comments section. Any brushes with greatness lately?
