I’m going to GRL 2014 in Chicago. It’s my first time and I’m very excited. But I’m also a little nervous. I’ll be there as a general attendee and I’ve signed up to volunteer everyday to keep myself busy and mostly out of trouble. I’m also participating in an entertainment gig with fellow author, Shira Anthony. She sings. I don’t. (As in… run. Really) I decided my best bet was to organize everyone something where everyone else can sing. Karaoke, you ask? Yes! Love it or hate it, you have to admit it’s pretty funny to watch people give their best at Dancing Queen. If you’re going and you’d like to make a song request, let me know!
Dreamspinner Press is offering a fabulous deal for those who are attending GRL. If you’d like to purchase a discounted book and would like the convenience of having it waiting for you so it’s ready for the authors to sign, this is the deal for you. Free shipping, etc. But make your purchases before Sept.21. Check it out here. I will be at GRL and would be more than happy to sign books, etc though I’m not a featured or supporting author this year. (Maybe next year!)
Also, it turns out people are a little shy. I received quite a few likes on the How To Write Erotica giveaway, but not much by way of commentary. So I’m going to offer a $10 Amazon gift certificate along with the book. All you need to do is comment. Tell me what your favorite genre is and why you love it. Mine obviously is romance. I love the erotic elements of it, though the story is important to me as a reader. I need characters I care about and can root for. What’s yours? I’ll keep the giveaway open until Friday, Sept 19th at 9pm PST. Good luck!
Last but not least for my Better Than fans… I wrote a short story (yes, the one I’ve been promising). It features Aaron and Matt and takes place around Aaron’s birthday in October. Look for it next month! Also, I believe Better Than Friends may also be released on audio sometime in October or early November. Woohoo! And yes, my next book, The Right Words, the first in the new series, Right and Wrong Stories, will be available in late November/early December. So much going on!
Happy Reading! Lane xo
