The Lipstick Laws Contest.

Check out this contest. Joanne Fritz book giveaway. Ends June 14th.

Over the weekend, I went to a book signing. I met Jennifer Hubbard (The Secret Year) and Amy Holder (The Lipstick Laws). First of all, so fun. It's so nice to meet authors who are really nice. Second, I love when they answer questions and give advice. I even took my kids, who wound up behaving. I know amazing. Book signings are a great way to network and meet other authors/writers. It's also a great way to be introduced to new books and books that are already out there. Plus, I like supporting the local authors. Both these gals live in PA.

So, because you are all so awesome, and have put up with me in my first draft mayhem, I decided to hold a contest.

The prize:
A signed copy of The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder. Who, I might add, is such a sweetie. The book is addicting and that's all I'm sayin'.

Rules: Make sure you're a follower and leave a comment telling me if you have met any published authors recently? If you have, who? If you haven't, who would you like to meet?

That is all. I will use to pick the winner.

Now, of course, if you promote this contest you will get extra points. Make sure you tell me what you do. :)

Contest ends Sunday, June 19th. I will announce the winner on Monday, June 20th.

This is international.
There you have it. My first draft is getting there. I did nothing over the weekend so I have lots to catch up on this week.

Have a great day!


  1. Yay! I've met New England authors at the nescbwi conference! I met Tony Abbot this past year. It's fun. I'll tweet!

  2. Count me out of the contest, I've won too much stuff lately :P But to answer your qu., I haven't met any authors lately! The last one I met was in August/Sept last year at D*con - Brandon Sanderson.

  3. I'll put it on my sidebar.
    The book sounds great! And what a cover. :)

  4. I went to the book launch on Friday for my friend Janet Gurtler. It was so much fun!

    I hear you on the catch up. I have lots of catch up to do today. Good luck with your plan, Christine. :D

  5. I'm so glad that you were able to go and so sad that I wasn't!
    Let's see, as you know, I met Jeri Smith-Ready a few weeks ago and she is awesome.

    +4 points for me!

  6. Lucky you, getting to meet wonderful authors! It's so much fun, isn't it?

  7. YAY-- I read Secret Year, but would love to read this one! I am a follower and will tweet it. I've met local authors Courtney Moulton (ANGELFIRE), Leah Clifford (A TOUCH MORTAL) and the Roeckers (THE LIAR SOCIETY)!! Their books all launched recently!

  8. I met Cassandra Clare and Holly Black recently. It was sort of amazing to see them. (Though I'd trade all the book signings in the world to see J.K. Rowling.)


  9. No, sadly I have not. But hope that changes soon! :)

  10. I've met Jennifer Hubbard, and she is so sweet!! I haven't gotten around to reading her book yet, but it's on my TBR list for this summer. I also recently met April Lindner, who wrote Jane. I promptly ordered that one up on my Kindle and loved it!

  11. Recently, I met Jane Yolen at a conference. That was pretty amazing.

    I'd love to win this book. I'll share it on Facebook and sidebar it. I'm a follower! 4 points!

  12. I haven't met any published authors :( I'd find it hard to pick just one but if I had to, I'd like to meet Talli Roland. That would be fun :)

  13. YOU are the sweetie! Thanks so much again for coming to the signing! It was great to meet you!!
