TGIF! I know I have giveaway winners to select. I promise to catch up on that tonight. If you have been waiting with your fingers crossed over, I will soon put you out of your misery or maybe make you very happy. And I finally received the correct shipping envelopes so I can finally get my previous giveaways to the Post Office if you are waiting for something.
There are new regulations with regard to the GDPR. Basically, if anyone is in EU you have to confirm that you wish to receive these emails. My emails are not very sophisticated so I would ask if you no longer want to be bothered, whether or not you are located in Europe, go to the bottom and hit “unsubscribe.” (I hope that is good enough to satisfy the regulations.)
Now that business is done…
I don’t know what is going on in the world of Romance. It was announced at the beginning of the RT (Romantic Times) Conference, which began earlier this week, that this would be the last RT Convention. Not only that, but effective immediately, there will no longer be an RT Magazine or website providing first looks into new and upcoming romances.
First HeroesandHeartbreakers.com shuts down and now Romantic Times? What is going to become of the romance community?
Where are you supposed to get information on the next great romance novels to look forward to? Heck, I can only read so many!!! You only get information from Goodreads or Amazon if you go and look up a specific book. Also, you cannot review on Amazon until the day it releases! So how are we to know about an exciting new author or anticipated new book? *sigh*
I mentioned the other day that Christina Lauren’s recent release, Roomies, was being made into a movie. Her 2013 novel Beautiful Player is finally being released in mass market paperback, and we have been generously offered a giveaway copy to share with you. Yay!
To be entered for our giveaway, let us know where you go to get romance news and reviews now that we have lost H&H and now RT.
Giveaway ends Thursday, May 24th. This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada residents only.
A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.
When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she’s determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother’s gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?
Will takes risks for a living, but he’s skeptical about this challenge of Hanna’s…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed- and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can’t forget. Now that Hanna’s discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it’s up to Will to prove he’s the only man she’ll ever need.
