Escape Into Books


Congratulations to "JoAn V.", the winner in Maureen's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!


Hello all! There was a cancellation so I decided to pop in and say hi to everyone, and to share some pictures from last weekend's ESCAPE INTO BOOKS book signing in Atlanta. Several JUST ROMANTIC SUSPENSE authors were in attendance!

Escape Into Books was a free multi-genre, independent book signing event. It featured authors at different stages in their career, from veteran New York Times and USA Today Bestselling authors to new authors who were attending their first signing. There were over 30 authors in attendance. It made for quite an entertaining day for readers to experience a wide array of authors, and to pick up some fun swag!

I was there showcasing my BLUE-LINK romantic suspense series. I had blue diamonds on my table because the series features an enigmatic woman who wears a blue diamond ring and runs the global company, Blue-Link.

The lovely and talented, Misty Evans was there promoting her SCVC TASKFORCE romantic suspense series along with her SHADOW FORCE INTERNATIONAL romantic suspense series. 

I was a little melancholy because I had to leave my puppy at home. It was my first time away from her. Some of you may have seen her on my Facebook page. She's a nine-month-old Corgi entering her tweenage phase. Misty's little ones are so well-behaved, they got to come along! No, they're not hiding under the table, but that would have been fun! :)

And we had the uber-awesome Dianna Love sitting a few tables down from us featuring her SLYE TEMP romantic suspense series. Dianna was surrounded by adoring fans at this event, and I was one of them! 

What are your thoughts on giant book signing events? Are you more apt to head out to the book signing of a specific author, or do you like the idea of browsing past a diverse group of authors and seeing all your reading options?

  1. It looks like all of you had a great time. Attending a conference with authors and book signing events is on my bucket list. Maybe some day soon.

  2. I was considering attending the one that will take place in Rome next year, but decided against it as it's more for NA authors and readers.

  15. I've never been to one. Where I live we just don't get them and I don't do any traveling due to my severe RA so I haven't had the opportunity. I'd love to though.

    1. I can remember picking up a book and looking at a picture of Nora Roberts, and thinking, "hmmm, I wonder what she's like?" Fortunately, I've had several opportunities to meet her and she is a wonderful woman.

  18. I love going to book signings. There's a special kind of high being surrounded by so many authors and books! The hard part about traveling is not being able to tote my books around with me.

  19. I have only been to a couple of author signing events, but have enjoyed them so far. I have been drawn to them because authors I already read were going to be there. I have met many new authors that way such as Julie Ann Walker, Jasinda Wilder, Marina Adair, and several others I hadn't read prior to the events. I do feel I need to research the authors prior to the event though so I know what types of books they read and can plan accordingly. However, sometimes it is nice to just meet an author and have them tell me about their books too. While I do enjoy print books, I wish instead of just having those, we could somehow pay the authors for digital books when going to events. I prefer to read digitally since I always have my phone! It would have been so much fun to meet you, Dianna, and Misty in person!
