Home Again...

I am happy to report that I am home again and I am slowly climbing back into the daily grind. The RomanticTimes Booklovers Convention was another huge success. Many books were signed, pictures were taken, and new friends were made while old ones were hugged. What made it even nicer was that it was in my own backyard per se, as I was able to drive the two hours from my house to the conference with no problem.

I've posted a pile of pictures on my Facebook page as well as on my blog. However, I have able to locate one in particular that is my favorite, as it has many of my friends and one very special lady in it. After the massive book signing, I attended the Charlaine Harris fan club party, where I was able to thank Charlaine again for some nice comments she made regarding Nightwalker many years ago.

In the meantime, I'm back full-time on my diet and I've got an appointment with trainer for later this evening. It's time to get in shape for June and July's book signing extravaganza.

But first, how about a contest? Everyone likes books, right? Every year at RT, they hand out loads of books to readers to introduce them to authors they might not have tried yet. I managed to keep my stack down to about a half dozen books, but I don't have time to read them.

I would like to offer the books I acquired up for a contest. However, there's a catch. I'm not going to tell you what books they are. The winner of this contest will win a mystery box of 5 unsigned books. Considering that I was at a romance convention, it's a pretty safe guess that the books are romance novels.

Are you interested in getting some free books? Thought so.

Rules:
1. Only one entry on my Blogger or LiveJournal account.
2. Leave your name and comment (NO email addresses)
3. This contest is open to domestic and international readers
4. The contest closes at midnight on Thursday, May 6. I will announce the winner on Friday, May 7.

And don't worry. I'm going to try to have another contest very soon.

From the many pictures I seen on facebook it looked like all of you had a blast up there.

If only I had the money I would have gone since Columbus is a two hour drive from me. However, all my money is being saved up for Rock on the Range 3 in Columbus May 22/23.

Which means no new book buys until AFTER the concert.

So sign me up for the contest
