I had a wonderful time at the annual Southern Magic Readers’ Luncheon. Our keynote speaker was New York Times #1 Best Selling Author Sherrilyn Kenyon, and welcome speaker New York Times Best Selling Author, Dianna Love. Beyond Her Book (Publisher’s Weekly) Blogger, Barbara Vey, was our special guest.

Here are some of the highlights of the day ~


The Author Table I shared with Naima Simone


Naima and me


Naima presents Sherrilyn Kenyon with some fabulous author swag


My books, ready to be signed. Eternal sold out!


Me with Barbara Vey


A record crowd in attendance


Drawing a winner for my author basket which included a copy of Eternal, a copy of Skeletons of the Civil War, a soundtrack of music that inspired me while writing Eternal, Mt. Pleasant Tennessee notecards with images of my setting, an antique frame, and a cozy fleece throw.


Me with Eternal’s cover artist, the very talented Tricia Schmitt


Naima Simone’s gift basket with a  copy of Eternal peeping out the top


One of the highlights of my career as an author was signing my book, Eternal, for Sherrilyn Kenyon


Award presented to me by the Southern Magic Chapter for the publication of my 25th book in romance fiction


I’m looking forward to next year’s luncheon, which will be held November 2 at the Harbert Center in Birmingham, Alabama. The keynote speaker will be Jeaniene Frost.
