Thank you everyone who stopped by my Champagne Book Group Author Facebook party on Friday! A good time was had by all despite some technical difficulties, so like a good hangover – is there such a thing? – let’s wrap it up, shall we?
First off, congrats to Joanne Renauld! She won the $20 Amazon gift card for signing up for my website email. Check your inbox, Joanne. There’s a card waiting for you – spend it well.
May I suggest a few wonderful options:
Kelley Griffen’s Binding Circumstance – To save the life of the man she loves, she’ll have to risk her own. Costume designer, Leslie Carroll has mastered the art of flying under the radar. She’s had to, or risk being found by the psychopath who almost killed her.
The first in Laney Kaye’s Bent, Not Broken series, Malicious Desire – They think they can break her. But if life hasn’t succeeded, how can four men? It’s an Amazon best seller!
Elizabeth Chatsworth’s delightful novelette, Ten Minutes Past Tea Time – A Victorian spinster-scientist and a Viking shield-maiden find passion and danger in dark-age Ireland.
Another Amazon best seller, Outling, the first in Marty Mayberry’s Crystal Wing Academy series – Welcome to Crystal Wing Academy, where the magical Elite reign…and Outlings are an endangered species.
Next up, some poll results. I asked our tipsy little party goers what they like in romance and here are the results:
- First place – Include suspense, paranormal, and/or sci-fi elements
- Second place – just make me break out into a full-on sex sweat
- Third place – Take place in the past and/or feature well-known historical events
- Fourth place – Make me laugh out loud and cheer for a hapless main character gulp (I wrote a freaking romcom)
- Fifth place – Are set in the modern day and are relatable to my life
- Rounding up the rear – Always feature enemies to lovers regardless of time, place, setting, and heat level
Tell me, has frenemies been done to death? Your thoughts on these? Share in the comments what you love to read and, if you dare to share, tell me why.
Moving on, I’ll post an excerpt from SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED next, but in addition to my upcoming ebook, keep an eye out in October for my humor essay, Mom and Her Midday Mahem, featuring one of my mom’s cookie recipes, coming to the nationally recognized food blog, Eat, Darling, Eat. It’s a brief foray into my mom’s imaginative exploits hunting our midday meals with our pet cat, Tigger Tom, in the 1960s. You won’t want to miss it.
Time to share some social media info should you like to stay connected. Follow me on Twitter at @robinfritz – I promise NOT to get political (Ugh, am I right?), on Instagram at RobinFritz86, and on Pinterest at RobinFritz86.
Last but not least, a huge shout out to Champagne Book Group for hosting this shindig, and a giant thank you to everyone who stopped by for a chat. I really appreciate it and I hope to hear from you again soon. Until then, don’t forget about my upcoming release of SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED, stick around to meet more CBG authors, and if you do nothing else, keep on reading!
