Firworks and Contest Winners

I have been slacking. Actually, no I haven't. I've been extremely busy the past couple of weeks preparing proposals for a new book series. I've also been scrubbing my house for my Fourth of July party- which was a smashing success last night. There was way too much food, good stories, laughter, and general insanity when it came to the fireworks. If you're curious how my family celebrates with fireworks, check out the video below.

In the meantime, I know you've all been anxiously awaiting the winners of my Spread the Word Contest. I'm sorry I'm late reporting the results. But after tallying the numbers, here are the winners:

Cheesebk from the LiveJournal account

KittNLuv from my Blogger account

Lingeorge from my Blogger account

Erika Lynn from my Blogger account

Winners, please email me at JocelynnDOTdrakeATgmailDOTcom within the next week with your name and mailing address so I can get your signed books out to you.

Just a Reminder:

In other news, I'm going to be in Maryland in July for a signing. Turn the Page bookstore is celebrating its 15th anniversary on Saturday, July 10. I will be signing books along with Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Mary Blayney, Lorretta Chase, Donna Kauffman, Diane Whiteside, Austin Gisriel, and Katrina Shelley. The signing is running from 12 -2 pm. There Are Rules!

They will start to pass out tickets by 10 am on the day of the signing for your place in line. Only 1 ticket per person and be present. (you cannot get tickets for others) We stop giving out tickets at the advertised ending time.

Please do not block the entrances of our neighboring businesses when lining up for your tickets.

While we understand readers' enthusiasm to get cherished copies of an author's older books signed, we regret it's no longer possible to allow people to bring books from home.

IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT: I believe they are taking internet orders and then shipping the books after we sign them. I am supposed to have Wait for Dusk that weekend, so this would be a way to get the book EARLY!

When ordering it online, they'll know Wait for Dusk comes from this event?

I am in the processing of ordering it and clicked the autograph option. I just want to know that the bookstore people know to send the book out after it's signed.

Just wondering if you knew, if not not biggie! Can't wait to read it!! Wish I could attend!

They should know that this is for the event and should send it out afterward b/c it was an online order. Unfortunately, I don't know any more than what is on their website. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Oh Jocelynn...I just finished Pray for Dawn. I think you have now tied Vickie Petterssen for Queen of the Cliffhanger:) It was SOOOO good though. I can't wait for the fifth one! I'm in Michigan so I can't come to the signing, but I'll be ordering it.

My 17 year old and I just watched the fireworks video and we laughed so hard, especially when we could hear you saying "Get the hose!". I think you gave him some ideas for next year.
