A Lesson In Keeping Organized

So, bad news, I totally forgot to order more books for Pros in the Park, a literary event that’s happening this Saturday where I’m going to be signing. I know, I’m an idiot. Luckily, I do have about 26 books left over from Romancing The Capital.

EEK!

This includes a bunch of Proof copied of Arrangement with a Billionaire, the leftover copies of Alpha and As Cold as Ice, and the one copy of Vampire’s curse that I have left. However, this doesn’t include books on my shelf. I might yank them all off and bring them to the signing, too.

I also ordered 7 more books and got primary shipping through Amazon to get them in on the 2nd, but that’s expensive as all hell, hence, why I only ordered 7. Even with the $40 gift card I had, it was a steep price to pay.

I also ordered 40 books quickly through Createspace and got priority shipping, but according to Createspace, the package might not come in until the 8th, which will miss the date I need them by.

Now, I might get a Christmas miracle and those books could possibly make it in by Friday. Don’t laugh, it’s happened before, so while I’ll hope for the best, I won’t be too disappointed if they don’t come in. I’ll still have 34 or so books to give away, and I’ll just make more buttons and give away more nail polish and business cards.

When/if I run out of books, I can also encourage people to sign up for my newsletter through their phones and get the free starter library I’m giving away.

At least I won’t show up with a giant pile of nothing, and I also don’t know what the romance crowd there will be like, so yeah, not a total disaster.

Though I do need to learn how to better keep track of these things…

Now onto the better news!

Alpha Bear is released today! Woot! Or should I say Rawr?

 

Alpha Bear 3D

Will you look at that bad boy? I love this cover. Jennifer does such an amazing job I can’t even compute it.

Please feel free to share this book and pick up a copy for yourselves. I’m dying to know what people think of it 😀 Dane is my first bear shifter under Mandy Rosko, and he needs some love?

A Bear’s Hunger Won’t Be Denied…..

Former Navy Seal Dane Green is in a bad mood. After being injured on a rescue mission to retrieve the alpha’s mate and sister, and a fiery red head with amazing legs, he’s stuck in bed. To make matters worse, the red head he was injured for while rescuing, is insisting on nursing him back to health.

It might be great if he didn’t want to pull her in bed with him…

 

XOXO!

Woot! I Love Romance Readers! The Author Book Signing was a Blast!

So of the 130 or so copies of all the books I brought in to Romancing the Capital, I’ve only got about 20-30 left over, which is pretty sweet. I gotta say, nothing makes an author feel more special than when a cluster of readers are surrounding her table 😀 Of course, the fact that I was giving them away for free might’ve helped with that, but still, special warm feelings were definitely happening. I didn’t even have time to take pictures of the room! Or eat my sushi lunch. Lol This pic below show Eve Langlais, the host of the entire thing, waving at the camera. I can’t believe she put this together twice!

RTC2016

On another bright side, even though the charms didn’t come in on time because of customs, Eve managed to get them in, and soon I’ll have mine in hand. I don’t know what they look like yet, but I’ve seen pics of other people’s charms, and they look so amazing that I might have to order some of my own next year 😀

Yeah, Eve has tentatively decided that she will do this again in August. I’m hoping to have the sequel to Arrangement with a Billionaire out in time for the signing! Man, what would be awesome. If I can get permission, I might also order some more water bottles for the event. Next year, I’ll be getting them without the straws, however. One lady got a bottle with no straw in it, and I couldn’t find her to give her another bottle. I’m not sure what it will look like when I pick it out, but I’m sure it will be awesome no matter what :)

Were you there at RTC? I’d love to know! If you weren’t, you should definitely check it out next year. It’s going to be a blast, and I’ll be signing again 😉

Got The Books in for the Author Signing at Romancing The Capitol!

I’m so happy today. My paperbacks for the author signing are here. Three big boxes of books came to my door from Createspace 😀 Woot! And even better, today I have pictures!

I have updated copies of The Vampire’s Curse, copies of As Cold As Ice, and Proof copies of Arrangement with a Billionaire.

I had to order AWAB so close to the date of the signing that I couldn’t order proper proof copies. I basically had to confirm the book before seeing a physical copy just to make sure I would have 40 copies ready to sign and hand out to readers.

I did this knowing there would be mistakes. There’s a grey bar at the top of the cover, which I only half thought would be there. It should have been cut off, but I was working with Murphey’s Law here, so I figured it would be there. Some of the scene breaks aren’t centered, and there’s an error with the Heroine’s jeans that one awesome Alpha Team member pointed out.

But yeah, these are the unofficial proofs, and I’m making sure readers know that before handing them out. Either way, I’m still stupidly stoked to have these books.

I keep stroking the spines of AWAB like an idiot because it’s just so damned pretty. See for yourself!

AWAB

AWAB2

Aren’t they pretty?! I love the grey and red tone of these books, and the red cloudy spine. That tie is something to drool over to. You can see the small grey line at the top of the cover where my finger is pointing, but I still love these. Lol, I almost don’t want to give the copies away because they’re so damned beautiful <3 <3 <3 I still have trouble believing I wrote this big book on Wattpad. It’s so thick. It’s about as thick as The Vampire’s Curse, but the Vampire’s curse has bigger font and is 5.25×8 instead of 5×8

Also, you can’t see it here, but the spines with many copies of AWAB are off centered. I found a couple in the box of forty that looked all right, the one below is an example of one, and for thickness comparison just to show you :) The Vampire’s Curse is 80k words, but has a bigger font, and Arrangement with a Billionaire is 110k words with a smaller font. Making print books is complicated @_@

AWAB3

The spine error, which you can’t see here, will be fixed in a couple of days. Just have to update the files and let Createspace do their thing, but it’s okay because people at the signing will get these books for Free :) Free is the best word in the dictionary, didn’t you know?

I can’t wait to meet all the authors coming to RTC. Last year I bought a bunch of books, saw and listened to some excellent panels, and this year I did an author interview with a fellow author to get ready for it.

I have no idea how I’m going to fit all these books and the water bottles into my car so I can get to the signing. Lol. I might have to make two trips.

Are you going to Romancing The Capital? Have you been to any romance signings? They’re awesome, I’d love to know what you think of them 😀

Cheers!
