Rachel and I (Arlene) had the pleasure of driving down to Temecula, CA to the South Coast Winery for the Summer Lovin’ Reader Party. As much as we were pining to see Ella Frank and were somewhat disappointed she could not make the event, it was still packed with some amazing authors! Check out the list:
A.L. Jackson, Arial Burnz, Audrey Harte, Beverly Preston, CD Reiss, Carlie Sexton, Catherine Bybee, Christie Ridgway, Elizabeth Reyes, Gretchen De La O, Hadley Quinn, Julie Prestsater, Julia Richman, Kimi Flores, Lauren Blakely, Lisa Survillas, M.R. Joseph, Nyrae Dawn, Penny Reid, Renee Carlino, Shayne McClendon, Tammara Webber and Toni Aleo.
What a star-studded list, right??!! Well as always, I was awe-struck as soon as my turn was up to meet some of my faves. We were fortunate enough to by-pass the general line and get in a bit early to the event, so we had easy access to our favorite authors. As always, Rachel and I swear before each event that we’ll keep our spending to a minimum, but it goes without fail that as soon as we enter these events, we want a copy of just about everything!

I was fortunate enough to get signed books of the Regret Series by A.L. Jackson, Spin by CD Reiss, Breakable by Tammara Webber, Nowhere But Here by Renee Carlino, and Searching for Beautiful by Nyrae Dawn. Here’s my bundle of goodies:
Rachel walked away with a few goodies of her own, including the Regret Series by A.L. Jackson as well, and three Toni Aleo books (Taking Shots, Breaking Away and Trying to Score) that she can't wait to read. Check it out!
I think our most exciting purchase was Bend, which we picked up at C.D. Reiss’s table, this book is an anthology of EIGHT mistresses of the erotic, and they each have an orginial novella in the book that apparently was banned by Amazon. As soon as we heard that, we had to have a copy!
Overall the author signing was exciting and fun, and as always, we’re happy to share with an exciting giveaway. The lucky winner must be a Waves of Fiction follower for both Bloglovin and GFC, and it is open to U.S. residents only. Please fill out the rafflecopter for a chance to win. Good luck!
