Happy Saturday! It’s my favorite time of the year. Well, that is what the calendar says anyway. I’m waiting for the weather to get the message.
I’ve been busy this week. Next week is Penned Con. Have you ever gone? Here’s a video to give you an idea of what to expect (if you’re going) or what you’re missing (if you’re not going):
Penned Con will be my first big signing event as an author. I attended last year and enjoyed it. I met lots of people, networking the entire time. If you’ll be going AND you’re a blogger, you want to be sure to come by my table (#26 in the Colonnade Ballroom). The first FIVE bloggers each day will get a special thank you bag from me. You’ll need to bring a business card to prove you’re a blogger.
As usual, I’m doing a giveaway at my table. I have two prizes (one for Friday and one for Saturday). How do you win? Stop by and purchase a book (any one). This purchase earns you ONE entry. If you want a second entry, you’ll log onto my website (at the event) and sign up for my mailing list. All prizes will be given away after lunch each day.
This is the postcard I created:
The picture on the back is for the debut novel by my alter ego, Nadirah Foxx. I can’t show you the whole card because it will reveal the cover (it will be unveiled on Monday). These cards are tucked into the giveaway prize. They will also be on the swag tables in the halls outside the signing rooms at Penned Con. I’ll even have a limited number on my table.
This is my second to last event for the year. Next month it’s back to Michigan for Great Lakes Book Bash in Kalamazoo. I graduated from Western Michigan University and look forward to going back to a place I spent so much time before marriage.
Y’all have a great weekend. I’ll be busy finishing my packing. I got myself a new suitcase that is just awesome. I need to get the carry-on. It has a special compartment for your laptop (would save me from having to carry my big shoulder bag).
Catch you next time.
