The Weekly Write-Up: ApollyCon Be Cray

The Weekly Write-Up is where I talk about what’s gone on in the past 168 hours, both on the blog and off. Squee! I can’t wait to tell you all about my first big book signing. But I’m going to, because that shit’s way too long to be part of a larger post. It needs to be it’s own damn thang. For once, I don’t feel bad at all about posting on Tuesday instead of Sunday, because I’m still catching up on sleep.

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Jennifer Armentrout (Plus a Giveaway)

Ack! So I’m at ApollyCon, which is why I didn’t get this posted earlier. Also, I knew I wanted to give away one of her autographed books but couldn’t decide which one until now. 🙂 But I’ve been having so fun! And not just because I’m in a baller-status hotel room. It’s been so fun and so tiring so far. I’m going to keep this short so I can nap and re-energize for the party tonight. 😛 About Jennifer Armentrout: # 1 New York Times and International Bestselling author Jennifer lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard […]

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Cora Carmack

Eeee! Today is today! Today is today! And today is when I head to the hotel for ApollyCon! Meeting Cora Carmack is really exciting for me since I’m on her street team.

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Jamie McGuire

Eeeeek! ApollyCon is so close! As in tomorrow, I will leave work at exactly 5 pm (for a change), come home and nap, then set out for the hotel! I just realized it’s not actually in like the city part of Philadelphia, it’s by the airport. So my drive is about half as long as I was anticipating. Half an hour, baby! So today’s spotlight is on Jamie McGuire. I love Jamie McGuire. I’ve only been to one other book signing before (Atria Indies’ Fall in Love Tour) and it was to see her. And it was also in the […]

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Jay Crownover

Time for another ApollyCon spotlight! I’ve only read one Jay Crownover book, again, but I loved it enough to add the rest of them to my mountainous “TBR Soon” pile (which is different than my slightly larger, general “TBR” pile). About Jay Crownover: Being native Coloradan is a source of pride if you ask Jay. She loves all the things her home has to offer, and that is why she set her books in this familiar place. Writing about what she knows is why her stories feature plenty of rock and roll and body modification. Jay has been a bartender […]

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Katee Robert

Time for another ApollyCon spotlight! I’m getting *so* excited. Katee Robert’s Wrong Bed, Right Guy was one of the first contemporary romances I read, when I first graduated college in 2012 and celebrated by reading literally every waking hour I wasn’t at work. It’s how I discovered Brazen Entangle, a favorite publisher of mine. Katee is just kind of a big stepping stone in my being a romance reader, so excuse me if I get sentimental. About Katee Robert: Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three […]

ApollyCon Author Spotlight: Kristen Proby

It’s time for another ApollyCon author spotlight! I first read one of Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle series such a long time ago, but I’m still not done. I’ve read some of them more than once, but the new ones, I like to save. I love them so much, and they take me to a place not of other books do. Plus, I hate putting them down. So I have most of the series sitting on my Kindle. But the books are reserved for days where I’m sad and have nothing to do for the whole day. They are the perfect […]
