And Then AOTB Happened

I don't write about things on my blog as much as I should, mainly because I'm a pretty boring person. LOL At least that is my opinion.

But this past Saturday was The San Francisco Authors On The Bay Signing and I was lucky enough to have been one of the authors signing and I was in such great company.
Here I am with the lady that made it all possible, Rachael Wade
All the fun started when we arrived on Friday in the hotel bar which I didn't get a picture of and I'm really bummed about that. Then it was off to Rachael Wade's hotel room to stuff bags with swag and bond a little with her, Thessa Mari-Laj, Bella Colella, Anne MacFarlane-Eliot and Kimi Flores, five awesome ladies.

Shortly after stuffing the bags it was off to dinner at the Fog Harbor Fish House in Pier 39.

 
I'd like to send out a special thank you to my awesome helper Crystal Williams.



I managed to capture a few great moments from the event.
Starting from top left: A.L. Jackson, Kerry Erickson, Rachael Wade, Amy Bartol, Thessa Mari-Laj, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Anne MacFarlane-Eliot, Bella Belekov Colella, Rachael Wade, Thessa Mari-Laj and me, Rachel Van Dyken, Crystal Williams, Stephanie and Lukas Hamilton, J.D. Nelson, Rachael Wade, Swag Bags, Traci and Maddi Hamilton.

And here is what I just happened to pick up while there:


I can't wait to do it all again.

A Giveaway because there are only 4 More Days Until AOTB



There are only four more days until I'm in San Francisco, sitting behind a table with all my books waiting to sign them in a room full of twenty-one other amazingly talented authors. And I have to admit, I'm feeling a bit nervous about that. So, I need somewhat of a distraction and I can't think of a better way than having a giveaway!!!!

So who wants a signed print copy of The Fawn?

The title of The Fawn is a metaphor and the book is not actually about a cute little deer, so to win a signed copy of The Fawn, comment below and tell me what your most memorable childhood lesson was or your most wonderful memory from your childhood.

This giveaway is also on my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SMGriscom)  and I will tally both. If you enter both, you will have two chances to win. If you share this post, please tag me and you will have another chance to win.





Good luck and happy reading

Cover Reveal - Night Moves by Kristen Strassel

Title: Night Moves
Author: Kristen Strassel
Series: Night Song’s Collection Series (#2)
Genre: NA Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Foreword Literary
Blurb/Synopsis:

Melanie Vaughn’s job ruined everything. Her social life, nonexistent. Her relationship with her boyfriend, a hostile roommate situation. She resolves to fix everything one snowy afternoon, but instead comes home to discover her boyfriend is already exploring other options. Blonder, bustier options. Rage drives Melanie to do the unthinkable.

When Soul Divider was on the top of the world, so was Ryder Maddox. When the band faded into obscurity, Ryder’s luck plummeted with it. In a last ditch effort to rekindle the band’s heyday, Soul Divider teams up with powerful vampire clean leader, Talis de Rancourt. In return for her services, the band pays the ultimate price for never ending fame.

Now on the run, Melanie meets Ryder in a middle of nowhere hotel. She never expected her teenage rock star crush to be as lost and as in need of a companion as she is. Their connection is all consuming, even before they find they share another kinship: murder.

The newly turned vampires in Soul Divider still have a lot to learn. The police and public begin to connect the girls that go missing or die in sync with the band’s tour schedule. Back at home, clues are also adding up against Melanie as well. Between constant media coverage and unrelenting attention from the authorities, Melanie and Ryder find themselves in unchartered territory.


Kristen shares a birthday with Steven Tyler and Diana Ross.  She spends each day striving to be half as fabulous as they are.  She’s worn many hats, none as flattering as her cowboy hat: banker, retail manager, fledgling web designer, world’s worst cocktail waitress, panty slinger, now makeup artist and aspiring author.  She loves sunshine, live music, the middle of nowhere, and finding new things to put in her house.  Kristen is represented by Pam van Hylckama Vlieg of Foreword Literary.
