Arizona Dreamin’ 2012

I spoke at Arizona Dreamin’ 2012 last Saturday, and let me tell you, Kris Tualla and her team put together a a day rich in activity and interest for readers of all kinds of romance.

First there was the “speed dating” hour, where all the authors got three minutes to share what they write with small groups of readers. Then readers got to visit in small groups with the authors of their choice. Many authors gave away books and chocolate. Lots of chocolate! 🙂 There was also an onsite store hosted by Dog Eared Pages.

At dinner (which was delicious) several cover worthy young men competed for the  Man of Our Dreams title with a great deal of good humor, and afterward they posed for pictures along with cover model Jimmy Thomas. (I had a chance to chat with Jimmy when he signed a poster of the cover for WITH HEART TO HEAR. He’s a really nice guy, and he’s planning a store for authors to list their books for sale on his site.) Donations for the photos went to benefit the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, Arizona chapter.

Everyone I talked to had a great time, and Arizona Dreamin’ 2013 is going to be bigger and better than ever. Make sure you bookmark the website and friend them on facebook so you get the updates.

UPDATE: If you have had trouble finding WITH HEART TO HEAR on Smashwords to use the coupon I handed out at Arizona Dreamin’, please make sure you have the adult filter turned off.

  1. Sounds like such a great time. I need to start setting money aside to go to these events!

    The Arizona Dreamin’ 2012 was an exciting opportunity for me to meet new authors such as Frankie Robertson. I enjoyed tremendously the small intimate settings at which readers were able to do that. The time I spent with Frankie Robertson was refreshing and entertaining. The Arizona Dreamin’ experience is a must and I’ve already marked my calendar for the 2013 event.
