I will be helping out M. A. Abraham on Friday morning for the Elven Celebrations and on Saturday signing at her table. Look for this gorgeous banner, make sure to stop by and say hello, get some chocolate or if you see me walking around, stop me and say hello… I’ll be the taller one of the two with Elven tiara and ears 😉

Here are a links for the authors attending, check them out, maybe you will find something you like to read. I know I will go over my budget again… as usual 😀

Ignite Your Soul Author Event 2018

Hello and welcome!

It is that time of the year when I am getting ready to attend a book signing I’ve been attending for the last few years now. Amazing event, small, intimate and what I like about it is that I can spend time with each author and find out what’s what.

IGNITE YOUR SOUL Author Event 2018
in London, Ontario, Canada!

IYSAE2018

Love their slogan:

Real books. Real People. Real community. Come ignite your soul with us!

This year is going to be even more amazing, M. A. Abraham will be attending as a signing author along with some fabulous authors, some returning and some new ones too. Before I went as a reader and blogger making small contributions to the registration bags and baskets with books and swag donated by authors. Remember my post last year? Or my post from the year before?

This year I will be helping out Ms. Abraham at her table and sneaking out from time to time to feed my book hoarding addiction 😉

So here is the info….

September 29, 2018

DoubleTree by Hilton

300 King Street, London, Ontario, Canada

Every year a charity organization is chosen to have the fundraising for and this year Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex is the recipient of the silent auctions proceeds. The authors, bloggers are donating great prizes to bid on.

purpleRibbon-charms

I will be selling my one-of-a-kind hand-made beaded bracelets adorned with the purple ribbon charms with proceeds going to the same.

Many genres to choose from, so join us for another fabulous Canadian book signing convention! Here are a few of the titles that will be available for purchase.

sponsors

For the VIP guests there will be the Autumn Harvest Dinner After Party too with a delicious buffet dinner, DJ entertainment and photo booth to goof around in.

Check out the website for more info, for a list of the authors attending and if you have any questions you can contact the organizers on the site or the event Facebook page.

Here is the link for ticket purchase form.

I hope to see you there, if you do, stop by the table and get some swag and a hug too… just ask those who got one, they say I give the best hugs 😀 or if you see me walking around, stop me and say hello… I’ll be the one of the two (the taller one 😛 ) with Elven tiara and ears 😉

Until next time… read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

My recent adventures in the book world

Hello and welcome!

allaccesspass.pngI am so happy that there are more book signings in my part of the world. I am ticking off names from my bucket list of authors I love and want to meet.

KallypsoCon-july15.jpg

I attended the KallypsoCon signing in Burlington, ON back in July, and only the signing on July 15th because the full event tickets were sold out like hot cakes.

I was so happy to finally meet Cherise Sinclair, Kallypso Masters & Lexi Blake SQUEEEE

I got to see again Ainsley Booth and meet her Frisky Beavers co-author Sadie Haller, she is such a sweetie, also got to see and hug again Cara Covington.

New authors for me were Julie Morgan, Sasha White, Ella Dominguez, Sierra Cartwright.

Of course I blew my budget again, but that is nothing new for me LOL

2017-07-16 10.25.48.jpg

Bumped into a few friends, also authors who attended as readers. Thanks to Kayleigh who gave up her registration bag, I have a memento from the event, and I got it signed by the attending authors ❤

All in all was a good signing, despite being short for me, collected swag for you too. Keep on reading 😉

Moving forward a few weeks which were filled with preparations for the Romancing the Capital in Ottawa, Canada, attended the 3-day event as a ‘bossy Elven helper’ to M. A. Abraham 😉 this being her first signing and all. I think it went pretty good, she was a trooper and took everything in stride. It was a learning experience for both of us, that’s for sure. We as readers do not realize how much time, money, energy goes into preparing and delivering to a signing event. MY HATS OFF TO ALL THE AUTHORS. We participated in a few events, we dressed up for both dinners and the signing went off without a hitch. The only thing we forgot is our capes, but there is always next time 😉

Got to wear a few t-shirts, one M. A. ordered for me with my love Loth, the Elven Warrior King and it says “I RATHER PLAY WITH LOTHRARIEL IN THE ELVEN EMPIRE”, and a couple of t-shirts I designed, one with my book boyfriends who came for a chat on this blog and one with my fave Eargasms voices. Alas the two I made, didn’t make it thru the wash so I have to come up with something more permanent.

I think I am still on a ‘high’ from the event. The generosity of the authors, the friendliness of the readers, the whole atmosphere is electrifying. Eve Langlais, despite promising that she will not do another event again, delivers every time. She is such an awesome hostess, thanking her & her minions, the sponsoring authors for another awesome event.

Screen Shot 2017-08-27 at 2.21.37 AM.png

Meet Dreamy Eyes, a surprise from M. A., the dragon that accompanied me to the event and was my sidekick for one of the dinners when I dressed up as an Elven Dragon Rider. I received a goat from Kate Reedwood, too cute aaaaand I finally got my hands on the EveL Ducky SQUEEEE

I recently joined a group on FB called Aural Fixations, an awesome group of readers addicted to audiobooks (my wallet is terrified when I go to check out what the group has posted LOL), authors and narrators. So I made a sign/fan and got pictures with all the authors who have audiobooks so I can share with the group. I even gave away one audiobook CD set I won in Deborah Cooke’s event.

It was great seeing again authors I met in the past, Deborah Cooke, Zoe York, Sadie Haller, Ashlyn Chase, Opal Carew, Anne Lange, Carey Decevito, Viola Grace, Milly Taiden. Finally meeting ones that I love, more crossed off my bucket list 😀 Sarah Castille, Elle James, Susan Stoker. Discovering new ones, Cathryn Fox, Desiree Holt, Kristine Cayne, Susan Hayes, M. K. Eidem, Anna Markland, A. M. Griffin, Barbara Devlin, Sharon Page, Angela S. Stone, Sara Hubbard, Cat Johnson, Mandy Rosko, Lucy Farago, Amy Ruttan, Sheri Lyn, Cara Addison.

Made a few new friends, hugged old ones, it was like a big family reunion, without the drama of course LOL

bags.jpg

I have two bags filled with awesome swag & books from both events plus I raided my stash, I even found some extra t-shirts and would like to share the bounty with two readers, open to Canada and US. Here are the books, split between the two at random 😉

books.jpg

Tell me which authors would you like to meet.
Can be any author, not just the ones listed here 😉

Two names will be picked by Sexy Mr. Random after 3pm EST on Tuesday, August 29, 2017. GOOD LUCK!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!

Thank You! Giveaway

Hello and welcome!

Thank-you-post-it_Xoombi.jpg

I thought it was time to have a Thank You! Giveaway again to those who are joining my chats regularly. Thank you for your continued support and hope you will visit with me in the future too XOXO

My latest book adventure was in September at the Ignite Your Soul Event in London, Ontario, hosted by authors Crystal St. Clair & J.M. Walker, the proceeds went to a great cause, Wounded Warrior of Canada and was proud to be able to contribute in a small way, adding stuff to the registration bags, also delivered 2 big baskets for the raffle, one from M. A. Abraham and one from Sharon Hamilton.

2016-09-24 19.50.57.jpg

Blew my budget out of the water, but can’t help myself, books are my drug of choice 😉 Loved meeting all the new authors. Finally got to meet Felicity Kates in person YAY and seeing the ones I met before, Zoe York, Kali Willows, Kayleigh Malcolm,  Kacey Hammell, Freya Baker, Tricia Daniels.

I am hoping I will be able to attend next year too, the event will be hosted by authors Crystal St. Clair and Erin Cristofoli but have a few already scheduled on my calendar, so will have to see.

Are you signed up to my blog? I hope you are, there is a giveaway every time and you get to meet my fave authors, my book boyfriends & girlfriends and the voices that give them life.

owlanddragon.png

I collect dragons and owls and when I found these, I thought you might like them too. Adding the cup that will make you think of me when you use it and hopefully make you smile 😉

I have one too 😀 CHEERS

bags-cup.jpg

I raided my boxes and there will be signed books, notebooks, t-shirts, totes, pens, magnets and lots of other swag I collected from authors with you in mind. I took pictures of the contents, but then I thought I am keeping it a surprise…

call me EBIL… bwahaha evil grin I promise you will love everything that is in the bags.

Which bag would you choose if Sexy Mr. Random picked you? Which if any of the previous chats you liked the best? Is there an author, narrator or a book boyfriend you would like to see me chatting with? Let me know in your comment.

Sexy Mr. Random will pick two names after 3 pm EST, Monday, October 31, 2016. GOOD LUCK!!!

Until next time read a book, listen to a book and don’t forget to show your love by leaving a review!
