As many of you know, we had the second of our monthly author meetups on September 18th. These really seem like they have fantastic potential to grow into a wonderful opportunity for local writers and readers.
Case in point, we had the very great pleasure of meeting several members of the Eastside Romance Writer’s Group who joined us. I cannot stress enough how wonderful and fun these ladies were.
Author Lucy Carol brought hard copies of three of her novels so we could see the fantastic new cover art she’d commissioned. Her Madison Cruz novels are light, fun mysteries perfect for people who loved the early Stephanie Plum novels but find themselves looking for something new. After chatting with her, I picked up the first novel in the series, Hot Scheming Mess*, and I started happily devouring it. It’s a quick, playful read and I was able to get 20% in before bed last night! Additionally, book 3 in the series, Stiff Competition, has been on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list, moving up as high as number 3!
Darlene and Marianne are currently in pre-publication on their own novels and I’m very much looking forward to seeing what they’re going to be putting out.
So, thank you, Darlene, Marianne, Kelly, and Lucy. You helped make the meetup a real treat and we look forward to taking you up on the offer to join a meeting of the Eastside Romance Writers!
