Fatefully Yours!

I can't tell you all how excited I am to meet Elizabeth Seckman in person!! Only a month, girl! And to help her with her latest release, I'm honored to give her the spotlight today! Here she is...

Cue Rocky music...Tara and I are in conference training.
Rawr.
You have to start out slowly. Doing the calendar page flips, checking the days against the kiddos' sports and to-do's. Careful! You could get a paper cut if you go too fast before you're in proper shape.

Once you've mastered that wrist action, it's time to exercise that budget because you have hotels to book and swag to buy. Yep, trim that fat, you have readers to bribe impress.

Whew. You're about done! You just have to take a few laps around the internet...spread the word to friends. Talk them into doing the conference marathon with you.

Take a breather, then order yourself a tee, just to show the world you've been there, done that.

Now seriously?

Tara and I are trying our best to spend some time with readers outside of the web. You know, grab the chance to shake some babies and kiss some hands...oh sorry, that's politics!

But still, the idea is the same. Get out and enjoy some face time with readers.

And sadly...conference training is just like everything else...there is work and planning involved.

March 28th- 30th, we will be in Atlanta, Georgia at The Novel Experience Event.

We started our planning last month (well, Tara started planning and sending me reminders of what all I need to do...love you Tara!).

hotel room? check
books? check
swag? ordered cups and pens from Discount Mugs.
poster? Carrie Butler of Forward Authority is on it
tee shirt? check
exchange cell phone numbers with writer buddies? check and double check

I think I am ready.

I am ready, right Tara?

Fate Intended is the third book in the Coulter Men Series.  Trip is the last of the Coulter sons to find love. He’s a handsome man with all the skills a young spy needs to succeed. But when it comes to love, he misses the target. Jane is a sweet beauty who may or may not be wanted for murder. She’s hiding out as a cleaning lady when chance brings her and Trip together. It looks like a happily ever after is in the cross hairs until reality tries to destroy what fate has intended.


Elizabeth Seckman is a simple chick with a simple dream…to write stories people want to read.
