Yes it's my birthday, but I'm the one giving away a gift!
After all, I'm already getting what I want for my birthday -- quality time with family and friends. First, I'm going to spend tonight with my kids and husband enjoying a nice dinner and, hopefully, a yummy cake or cupcake. Then I'm going to start my weekend participating in a local Walk to End Alzheimer's event in memory of my grandfather. My family's team has raised more than $1,000 for the cause and I can't think of a better way to honor his memory. Finally, I'm going to spend most of Saturday and Sunday at the OCC RWA Birthday Bash! I love getting together with author friends. There's always lots of laughs and tons of inspiration.
It's been a good year in general for me. It was my first as a published author and I've had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people because of it.
Speaking of, I owe a good chunk of my happiness this past year to Decadent Publishing and its 1Night Stand Series for giving my first novella REUNITED a home. The 1Night Stand series, by the way, is also celebrating its 200th birthday this month and I'm going to join the party with a special giveaway here on my blog on Monday, October 14. There's going to be a pretty cool prize package from Decadent, so make sure you come back here on Monday to check it out! Click on the link to learn more about the 1Night Stand series.
So on to the gift giving! I'm going to give away a copy of REUNITED to one lucky commenter. All you have to do is like my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter (@theromancechica) or promote this giveaway on Twitter or Facebook (use the buttons below to share). Mention in the comments which one you did and I'll enter you into the drawing. Deadline is Sunday, October 13. Besides a copy of REUNITED, the winner will also receive a party "loot" bag filled with some goodies and other fun surprises. Don't forget to leave your email so I can contact you if you win!
Finally, thank you to everyone who has supported me this past year either by reading REUNITED, following this blog or friending me on Facebook and Twitter.
It's been an exciting and wonderful year and I can't wait to see what happens next!
