Be sure to also introduce yourself to me at this year’s Southern Magic Readers Luncheon—one of the best ways I know to connect to an author and their books! Don’t have your ticket yet? Really, with Sherrilyn Kenyon, Dianna Love, Barbara Vey and a host of other authors, they'll sell out fast! Go to www.southernmagic.org/luncheon.html now before they are all gone so you can connect with an author and their printed pages!
