SOLD OUT!

Yes! I'm at the Authors After Dark Conference in Suffern, NY, a readers' conference, and Wild Blue Under made its debut at the book signing today and I'm thrilled to say that it and In Over Her Head sold out. With approximately 60 readers and 25 authors (give or take), the odds of selling out weren't all that high, so I'm doubly pleased that all of the books went.



I participated in a Mermaids & Myths event with Joey W. Hill where we discussed our stories. Joey has a beautiful erotic series that is based on the Little Mermaid mythology. It was fun to see how we took the same mythology and came up with divergent tales (pun totally intended). Joey's been published longer than I have, so most of the audience had read her stories, but I was so thrilled to have readers there who'd read In Over Her Head.


I also participated in a panel on fairy tales and with my tag line: "fairy tales with a twist," a lot of people were interested in the stories. And the interest for my upcoming genie series got a nice boost. Many folks signed up for my newsletter and Romantic Beach Getaway Contest.

It's a smaller venue which is great for getting to know the readers and the parties are so much fun. I'm planning to be back next year and encourage anyone with an interest in paranormal stories to attend.

  6. Good for you Judi. Made your heart sing, didn't it?

    Wait until the read the next in the series. It's my favorite!

    I see you have your *lucky* blouse on. Must be your IOHH shirt to match the colors on your books.

    Good to hear you talked up the Genie series. :-)
