Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together Book SigningWell, it’s been a few years since we attended this event. Rhonda (Sanddanz) and I are here as hanger-oners.  We aren’t actually attending the event but are here for the author booksigning. Really, it was a chance to visit with Rhonda. The number of people attending this event was overwhelming.

Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together Book SigningOne of the great things about events like these is the opportunity to discover new authors. In addition, I found that some of my favorite authors have some books coming out that I didn’t know about. Books added to my Amazon wishlist: Bad Girl By Night: A H.O.T. Cops Novel (Lacey Alexander) and The Billionaire’s Borrowed Baby by Janice Maynard. I downloaded samples for Wicked Wonderland (LuAnn McLane, Janice Maynard, Susanna Carr); Carpe Bead ‘Em (Tonya Kappes); and Fool for Love (Marie Force).

Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together Book SigningTonya Kappes has a cute book called Carpe Bead ‘Em that I’m looking forward to reading. And she has a new book called The Ladybug JInx – the promotional materials included a recipe for Hillbilly Punch. The promotional material for The Naked Hero blog includes a recipe for a Naked Lady cocktail. Definitely a woman after my own heart.

Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together Book SigningI had a chance to meet Marie Force who I discovered through Goodreads and I’ve been busy reading all of her books. Her Fatal romantic suspense series as well as her McCathy’s of Gansett Island contemporary romance series are two of my favorites. Marie is a self-published author and I wish her all the best in being successful and beating the publishing houses at their own game!

I had great conversations with author Kate Douglas and Rhonda in the bar. While I admit that I haven’t read Kate’s books, she was a wonderfully warm and entertaining conversationalist. If you enjoy paranormal erotica, I recommend checking out her books just based on meeting her.Kelsey Maxwell (All for Love series)

Other authors that I met that I hope to check out include: Leah Braemel, Sandy Sullivan, Tim Smith, Cat Shaffer (romantic suspense), Keri Stevens (paranormal romance), and more.
