Fun Friday!

So much going on that on this Fun Friday I’d thought I’d share some of the fun things that will be coming up in June and July!

Forever Romance is launching their Summer Book Club and it starts today! Visit their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ForeverRomance to chat with Jami Alden about her latest release, BEG FOR MERCY. I’ll be visiting them later in August to chat about THE LOST.

Speaking of chats, although you can’t really call these amazing live video events “chats” in my book, look for these wonderful live visits from some of my friends. You can click here to visit these events and ask us your questions, hear us share stories, you name it! Anything can happen during one of these live events.

    June 9, 9 pm – Lisa Renee Jones
    July 13, 9 pm – Larissa Ione
    July 28, 9 pm – Cynthia Eden
    August 11, 9 pm – Rachel Kramer Bussel

We’ll be having some more of these events shortly, so I hope you’ll pop into one and maybe even win one of the prizes we’ll be giving away, like a $10 gift card, autographed copy of STRONGER THAN SIN, tote bags, lovely handmade beaded bookmarks and a t-shirt!

THE FIFTH KINGDOMWhat else is happening in July? Well, a cool blog tour and last but not least, the July 11 release of my romantic suspense, THE FIFTH KINGDOM. I hope you’ll love this story about a sexy CIA Agent, an adventurous professor with family issues and an ancient relic with possibly mystical powers.

Events, Coupons and More!

As much as I was planning to do a Thursday 13 today, I am without a thought this a.m. I could not even name 13 things sitting on my desk right now. Well, maybe I could but I don’t think you’d be too interested in knowing. LOL!

I want to thank everyone who dropped by the live video event last night. I had a blast talking with all of you and the marvelous Donna Grant. Donna is so much fun and it was so interesting to hear about her books and her wonderful Dark Sword series. Also got to see her wonderful trailer for UNTAMED HIGHLANDER. Can I say AWESOME?

I’ll be picking winners from the event later this a.m. and posting them tomorrow, so please drop by on Friday to see if you’ve won.

Well, maybe I can after a double dose of coffee since I was both tired and excited after our event last night. Went to bed early as I usually do because I’m normally up at 5 a.m. to head to work. So not fun.

But as I lay there I turned on the television and zapped between PAWN QUEENS and AUCTION WARS. I love seeing what they find, maybe because I’ve recently discovered that there is an adventurous treasure hunter buried deep inside of me. (Duh, I guess I should have realized that way before writing AZTEC GOLD and THE FIFTH KINGDOM, but I didn’t!)

Then I caught my first episode of EXTREME COUPONING. Whoa! A young couple got thousands of dollars of items for FREE. The nice thing was they gave everything away to local area charities.

Next was a single mom who relied on couponing to support her family. More power to her. Why not take advantage of savings, especially in these difficult times.

I used to coupon more. Once saved 75% of my grocery bill with coupons. Now I have little time for that, but I still try to predominantly buy what’s on sale and what I need. I don’t want to end up throwing away items that have reached their expiration date.

I also make sure to check the sizes and prices. 5.98 a pound chicken breasts at 50% off is no bargain. I hate when stores do that to make themselves look good, but are not really giving their customers a break.

So do you coupon? Extremely or just average?

Oh wait. I guess I did have some thoughts this morning. LOL! I hope they made sense.
