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 random.org 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. :)

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!

  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.)

  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!
