On the Road Again, Plus Free Books!
I'm getting ready for another book tour. I did one two years ago and it was so successful that now gas prices are back down to a decent level hubby and I are taking off again in our 42' trailer for the start of my new series THE WEDDING VEIL WISHES.
Except this time we're doing something different. We're going to be doing booksignings at RV parks. Yep, instead of trying to lure readers into bookstores, we're going out to the readers. Sort of a Lori Wilde Bookmobile.
We're touring around my home state of Texas, but we're also going to be in Florida, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and Alabama from the end of Feb to the first of May. Our travel trailer will be festooned with vinyl signs of my book covers. I'll have books to sell, but I'll also be holding parties with free refreshments, prizes, book club discussions and talks on how to get published. The hightlight of the tour is the Romantic Times convention in Houston, April 25-29th.
I'll also be giving away six handmade wedding veils. My Mom's a great semstress and she's making the veils to look like the magic wishfulfilling wedding veil from THERE GOES THE BRIDE that gets passed around between four friends.
So how can you get a wedding veil? If you're one of the first six people who see me on the road and tell me you read about the wedding veil on this blog, you win! I'll be blogging daily while on the tour at myspace blog, so you'll know when I'll be in your area. Bookmark this address. http://myspace.com/loriwilde
You can also win one if your attending the RT convention and sign up for my raffle drawing. I have a whole basket of wedding goodies for that giveaway, including a $50 spa gift certificate, wedding photo album, cake topper and much more.
My mom's in the process of sewing the veils. We'll have a picture up soon on my website at www.loriwild.com. If you know anyone who's getting married soon, past this on.
Also, I'm giving away a copy of my novella in the anthology, REAL MEN DO IT BETTER from St. Martin's Press. These stories are extremely steamy so if you don't like your stories hot, don't sign up for this one. If you don't like steamy books, don't feel left out. I'm also giving away a copy of my Harlequin special release SOME LIKE IT HOT. Yes, the book sounds steamy, but it's not. All you have to do is post in the comments section that you'd liked to be entered in the drawing for the books. I'll draw names on Saturday and post the winner in the comments section of this post.
