Did y’all hear the good news?

First, the Kindle Fire winner from the previous post.

Drumroll, please…

MANDY TROM!!!  Congrats!  Send me your address to colleenhoover@live.com

One just isn’t good enough, is it?  Okay, fine.  One more winner.  Samantha Donica Dean, you just won a kindle fire!  :D

Now for (more) good news.

If you haven’t noticed, which I’m sure you have…ATRIA BOOKS snatched up some pretty awesome authors recently, who also happen to be really great friends of mine.  Jamie McGuire and Tina Reber, I can’t even say how honored I am to be in the same league as you two. You think Atria Books has huge NYC Christmas Parties? (hint, hint.)

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Love Unscripted by Tina Reber were both REALLY great reads.  And I know I have some BD and LU lovers out there, so these links are for the unreleased sequels to both books, coming out in 2013.  Lucky for us, we can pre-order our copies.  :D  Pre-order WALKING DISASTER HERE on Amazon and HERE on Barnes and Noble.  And LOVE UNREHEARSED HERE for Barnes and Noble and HERE for Amazon.  Then you can go on facebook and brag about it like I did.

And just twenty more days until paperbacks are on bookshelves for the SLAMMED SERIES.  So excited!  If you want to save a trip to the store and have them delivered to your door on the day of their release, pre-order SLAMMED HERE and POINT OF RETREAT here.  

I’m leaving in 48 hours for the Georgia book festival in Decatur.  If you’re going, we’ll be in booth 211, right next to the food!   Talk about luck.

So did anyone have any horror stories from the first week of school?  The transition has been pretty good for my boys, other than trying to get out of homework.  Cale came home after the first day of school and my husband asked him to get out his spelling words.  He told him, “I already did them a few days ago.”

Ummm…considering it was the first day of school, I’d say that was a butterflying lie!

Back to SCHOOOOL!!!

I don’t know about the rest of you mother’s, but tomorrow is a BIG DAY!  All of my boys go back to school and that means one thing and one thing only.

QUIET WRITING TIME!!!! Lots and lots of it.

There’s only one way to celebrate this great news, and that’s with an e-reader giveaway.  Are you in need of a Kindle Fire or a Nook Color?  Just comment here.  I’ll announce the winner(s) before I leave for Georgia this weekend.  You coming to Georgia?  Might want to bring an umbrella…


Just a boring update. Seriously. It’s very boring. I wouldn’t even read it if I were you, it’s so boring.

Okie dokie.  August 31st-September 2nd I’ll be at the Decatur book festival in Georgia with Nichole Chase, Liz Reinhardt, Abbi Glines, Rebecca Donovan and Sarah Ross.  We will be in booth #211.

Then comes Chicago, September 29th from 12-4 at The Palmer House Hotel.

I’ll be in New York City the first week of October and there’s a chance I’ll be doing a book signing one evening that week.  I’ll update more on that later.

As for future books, I’m working on Will’s Story and another standalone that isn’t part of the SLAMMED SERIES.  Just wanted to update everyone who is asking about release dates.  I had originally stated a Fall release for Will’s Story, but now that I’ve traditionally published the first two, things may change.  I won’t get new books out as soon as originally planned, so I appreciate everyone’s patience.  In the meantime, you can pre-order the new published paperbacks of SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT from Amazon and Barnes and Noble here.  They’ll be in stores September 18th.

That’s all.  Told you it would be boring.
