***TENTATIVE:*** If all goes well, then I will not only host the 200 Follower Giveaway but it will be collaborated with, get this ... ANOTHER giveaway with my co-conspirator and friend: Diana Meli from The Lovely Getaway. Talk about a double whammy!!! Right?


Book Expo America 2011: Day 3 - The End ...

BEA Day 3 ... May 26th, the last day of my book frenzy escapade. *Sigh* It was amazing while it lasted. I was fortunate enough to snag all the books I did, meet awesome people and form a very complicated relationsip with I-95 traffic. For oncein my life, I'm such a lucky girl!

I cannot wait 'til BEA 2012! Livia, Alix, Diana - who will be a firsttimer - and so many others: see you there!

Now, here's the low down of my BEA 2011 Day 3:

... Random House.

Uptown Stage ...

... Author, Lisa Mangum.

Harlequin BEA "headquarters" ...

Day 3 Swag:

With that, my total count of FREE books from BEA is ... *drum roll please* ...

Had to do it ...

*Only 71 pictured*

For those of you who miss BookExpo America this year ... It's all about 2012!


I hope I don't regrets this! But ... thought I should mention - if you're interested - I posted the first 5 chapters of PARADOX and the first 3 chapters of FROST on Book Country.



Look forward to the feedback!

BookExpo America 2011: DAY 2 ...

On the morning of Day 2 at BEA - May 25th - I got a few nice surprises. One, I actually found meter-free street parking on the only eligible block within a who-knows-mile radius. Two, I found out Lauren Kate was signing copies of PASSION [to be released June 2011] over at Random House. Yay! Three, I made yet another book buddy. See you in Florida, Livia! Harlequin Teen Hour ...

Is that Melissa Marr?...

Ladies and gentlemen, the $1 Million woman, Ally Condie ...

Day 2 Swag:

Happy Reading!

BookExpo America 2011: DAY 1 ...


Yes, that about sums up BEA - BookExpo America - in one, er, tastefully simple word.

I arrived at Jacob Javits Center at a little after 9 am on May 24th after crawling there an hour of traffic on the I-95. At that was coming from the Bronx mind you. Anywho, although this was not my first visit to the center, it was my first time attending BEA. And I have to say: Great choice, Haysel. Great choice.

As soon as I walked into the ginormous building I could feel the excitement as it tip-toed up my spine. One level below the first floor, in the registeration area, there was a chaos of people hustling to get registered and speedwalk - or, um, run, for those you lack self-control - to the exhibit floor.

I never felt so at home in a place that wasn't, uh, actually my home. Hehehe... Well, enough writing ... now it's time for picture time:
... Hmm, Claudia Gray's upcoming novel, FATEFUL, due out September 2011.

Just one of the many authors I've meet at BEA.

I think you can guess who this is ...

... a sming of the crowd at BEA this year.

Day 1 Swag, 28 books and other bits:

Ohh! Shout out to Alix, over at the Romance Book Forum, who I met on my first day at BEA. ***This girl is the mother of speedwalkers, let me tell you!***

Happy Reading!

The Beginning ...

So I just solidified the first 5 chapters of my manuscript, Paradox. Currently, I have written about 71,000 words and it still isn't finished so ... this is only the very beginning. I have a long road ahead of me and can't wait to the day when my first baby is complete. Wish me luck!

Take a look at my first 98 pages:
