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 ~
