Post Conference Goodies

Last week’s Texas Library Association conference was absolutely wonderful. I got to visit with the great students at Baranoff, sign books at my publisher’s booth, and hang out with a whole bunch of authors – some were old  friends, and some new friends. I especially enjoyed meeting Tricia Hoover and Jessica Lee Anderson’s fellow Texas Sweethearts & Scoundrels at their ice cream social.

But the best part of conferences for me is the books I bring home. I acquired several ARC’s and some off the shelf copies of quite a few books. I’m reading them now and will post my reviews as I finish – and then I’ll give them away. I love giving books away after I’m done with them. Someone else gets to read them and I get more space on my shelf.

I just finished Dry Souls from debut novelist Denise Getson. It’s the newest release from CBAY – coming out this May. I was able to spend a little time with Denise at the conference and she is a lovely person. I’ll post that review soon, along with a giveaway.  Some of the other ARCs I’m looking forward to reading include:

Calli by Jessica Lee Anderson

Sir Gawain the True by Gerald Morris (one of The Knight’s Tales)

Middle School: The Worst years of my Life by James Patterson (with Chris Tebbetts)

Mousenet by Prudence Breitrose

I’ll be posting reviews soon!
