A Whirlwind Affair

I am really excited to be here. Thanks for allowing me to visit with you, Anna Kathryn. I am still recovering from one of the most exciting weekends I've ever experienced. I went to Cincinnati to attend the Lori Foster Reader and Author Get Together.


Last week, my debut humorous paranormal romance, Demons Prefer Blondes, released from Sourcebooks Casablanca. And ever since, I feel like I am in a whirlwind. From finishing edits on Demons Like it Hot, which comes out in December, to trying to set up booksignings at the local book store, to finishing up my promo items and packing for my trip, I literally felt like a debutante coming out for her first Season. The only thing missing was the dashing rake who was supposed to sweep me off my feet. Although, there was an extremely nice looking cover model who made an appearance on Saturday. There is a photo somewhere.... I am notoriously lax when it comes to taking photos with my own digital camera.

I had my first big book signing as Sidney too. My alterego, Arianna Skye has already done a few. It's always an awesome experience seeing people come to my table with my book in their hands. It really put everything into perspective. And, that was much better than any sexy rogue whisking me to his castle on the cliffs.

Now as I slip back into reality, I realize that I have yet to finish book number three. Hopefully this exciting weekend is just the inspiration I need to plow out those words and give two other worthy characters their Happily Ever After.

Hi Cindy,
Can't wait to read the book! I've been looking at the stores but not seen it so far. Where can I get it?
Enjoy!

Jeannie I know! I LOVE the covers Sourcebooks has given me so far. The 2nd one is just as beautiful. It's still getting finalized but I'll post it as soon as I get the ok.

Tereasa, do you have a Barnes and Noble near you? Your local store should be able to order it.

Tess, thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed the blog.

Your book sounds great. Are you selling it at National?

If so, I can get it there and we can make a toast too!

All the best, Annette

Oooh, the title for Demons Like it Hot sounds just as good as the first one! Are you allowed to tease the title of the third installment?

Sidney Ayers said...

Annette, I will be at the Literacy signing and will more than likely be at the Sourcebooks signing too :)

Louisa, thanks! The third book's tentative title is DEMON HAPPY :)

Sidney, chimming in very late to say thanks for blogging yesterday. It was a great post that reminds us all of the thrill and excitement of attending conferences and doing book signings. Thanks for sharing!
