Open Book Signing in Severna Park, MD – July 17

Hello, friends! It’s been SO LONG since I’ve been able to see readers in person. As we’re gearing up for the release of Defy the Night, I’ve partnered with Park Books & Literacy Lab in Severna Park, Maryland to host an open signing event where readers can buy copies of my books (or bring their own from home) and have them signed, take pictures, or just chat whether they’re Team Rhen or Team Grey.

“If you want me to fix your homework, you need to leave me alone.” Then he spotted her. “You’re back.”
“Yeah.” She glanced between him and Gabriel. “You do his homework?”
“Just the math. It’s a miracle he can count to ten.”
“I can count to one.” Gabriel gave him the finger.”

Rach Hi Brigid,

Just a random question: if you could be an elemental being or anything supernatural for 24 hours who or what would you be and why? :)


Marie -The Reading Otter I dont know how many other fans would want one, but I would love to have a Novella for Chris and Becca. :)


message 25: by Sarah

Sarah Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Can't wait for Secret!


Eugenia (Genie In A Book) Thanks for accepting my friend request :)
Looking forward to reading and discovering more of your work.

Best wishes for more books in the future,
Genie


Shambhawi P. Thanks for accepting. (:

And honestly I completely admire your courage for what you did in Spirit with Kate, (view spoiler) I do feel real bad for Hunter but it is done. Writing and characterization wise Spirit is my favorite book - it was AHMAAZING. But my favorite Merrick brothers still Gabriel *swooon*.

I really am looking forward to being reacquainted with the God of Dance Adam and Nick's sexy descriptions of him. I just need to tweak my mental image of Nick a bit though to go with the new cover model (unless you tell me that it is not really Nick but sb else and all is right in my mental Elemental universe again).


Charlotte Thanks for adding me back!
