20th Anniversary Giveaway

Happy April 9th! Today is probably just another Wednesday for you, but for me it marks my 20th anniversary. On the day my hubby and I married it was bright, sunny, and extremely windy! We were only 17 years old (the same age as our oldest daughter) and thought we knew it all. The difference between us and the majority of the teens who married the same time we did... We're still together 20 years later! :)

What a difference the years make. We've had lots of trials and tribulations, ups and downs, happiness and sadness, but I wouldn't trade any of it for anything in the world. And we created such lovely daughters, too!

In sight of all the craziness 20 years of marriage brings, I'm welcoming all of you to celebrate with us. Check out the Rafflecopter below for numerous ways to enter the anniversary giveaway. Prizes include books, goodies, and gift cards. Entries will be taken for the next week and winners will be announced on April 17, 2014.

1 - Spring Goodie Box
2 - $5 Amazon Gift Cards
1 - Autographed Time for Death (Liz Baker, bk 1)
1 - Liz Baker eBook (winner's choice)
3 - Time for Death key chains
1 - Nail Polish Collection
3 - Book mark Collections

One part of the entries is for you to leave a blog comment, so I ask you this:

Name one thing that first attracted you to your mate. If you're single, name something you'd like to see in a future mate.  :)

Book 'Em 2014 was a blast!

Last weekend I attended the 2014 Book 'Em NC Authors Conference & Book Fair. This was my third year attending and I'm already signed up for next year. I had a great time.

Friday night was the author meet & greet. I meet up with old friends, and met a few new ones. I missed some authors who weren't able to make it this year, too. Overall, it was a fun evening with lots of food, drinks, and conversation.

The next morning we were up and at 'em early. The fair didn't open to the public until 9:30am, but all the authors filed in early to set up our tables, browse, and chit-chat with others. Here's a pic of my table set-up. I was supposed to share a table with my best author friend, Robin Renee Ray, but she wasn't able to make it all the way from New Mexico. Therefore, I ended up with a table to all to myself (and with 5 books to sell it was needed).

By the end of the day I had shaken so many hands, told so many people about my vampires, sold several books to new readers (and a few to old fans), and even turned down the offer of a new publisher. I was exhausted! It was a blast, but I'm always glad when it's over and I can get back home to my own bed, and back to writing the next book.

Here are a couple more pictures from the big day. Thank you to everyone who stopped by, said hello, and/or purchased a Liz Baker book. I hope to see you all next year!
