Celebration, sale & visit me at the Brooklyn Book Festival!

September is here and with it come autumn sales, the Brooklyn Book Festival and renewed writing pushes. I'm hard at work on book three in my Art of Love romance series, tentatively called Girl and the Gamer. To help celebrate the series so far, Shades of Rose is running a three-day book blast and a great sale for the boxed set, which includes the first two books. It is marked down from $3.99 to $1.99! If you're curious about Book three, it has Sienna dashing back to her hometown in Pennsylvania to see her mom in the hospital, who is hanging on with a strange ailment. Sienna runs into some old friends and a very sexy former enemy, who is mind-blowingly different than he was when she knew him in middle school.

I'm signing at the Brooklyn Book Festival:
I will be signing Art of Love and Ruby's Fire paperbacks at the Brooklyn Book Festival from 4 to 6 on September 20 (this Sunday!). So come visit me at the Romance Writers of New York City booth if you're in the area. That's booth #250. It's adjacent to the corridor along the Brooklyn courthouse.
Buy the boxed set here. Limited time sale reduced to only $1.99 down from $3.99! The Shades of Rose Book Blast tour for the Art of Love Boxed set (links go live the day of)
*** Enter the Rafflecopter on any of these blogs to be in the running for a $20 gift card & an eBook of book one, Model Position***

  1. Will Tweet!
    Hope you sell a lot of books Sunday and have a great time.

  2. Have a great time at the book festival! I can't wait to read the Girl and the Gamer! That's just right up my alley. :)

    1. I know, right?! I got the idea from a fan at a Facebook party! You never know. I promised her I'd give her a credit. Thankfully I keep very close records. Just have to dig it out of a file. Yes, Griff is a game designer/hoarding cleanup crew guy! Geeky all the way.

  3. Hope you have an awesome time at the festival! And best of luck with the last book--sounds like a lot of fun!

    1. It is, Meradeth. The romance is fun because he's so geeky he's super sexy.

  4. Tweeted both tweets. Have fun at the book festival!

  5. I know your signing will be a super success!

    1. Aww, I hope so. It will be quick - only there for 2 hours! Last time I did the Brooklyn Festival I was there all day.

  6. So much fun! Sometimes I wish I lived in NYC again so I could be central to so many amazing conferences.

    1. Crystal, yup, the crowds and traffic jams are fine by me, in order to stay central to the action. Plus, hey, I have a nice back deck with flowers and plants so I can always chill in a garden even in the heart of Manhattan.

  7. Sell tons at the fair! Looks fun. Break a pen and all that. :)

  8. I wish I could be at the book festival! Have a fabulous time.

  9. Hope the fair is awesome! Sounds like such fun! Wish I could make it. :)
