More Fun From Great Lakes Book Bash With A #Giveaway

As you can see, Great Lakes Book Bash was a blast.  It was a chance to see authors and friends that I have had the honor to get to know through our book community.  Sharing a love of books is only one side of the coin, laughing and enjoying each others "unique" personalities is also a part of the love I feel for this community.  There is no other group of people that I have ever found that embraces my inner nerd and shares some part of those characteristics.  It feels like a great big family. I miss them already! (Photographed above:  Front, Rachael Brownell, Back left to right: Me, Jo Michaels. Bette Barber, Misty Provencher, Cassie Shively, and Tia Silverthorne Bach)

Meet author SF Benson who was so full of energy and enthusiasm as she described each of her books and all the new ones she has planned.  Her excitement was contagious!  She writes young adult and new adult Dystopian/science fiction and paranormal stories.  I just purchased the Hearts Duology and from what she has told me there will be many more books added to this series.  If you would like to look at her work go to her Amazon author page or follow her on Facebook .

Author M.R. Polish greeted me with her beautiful smile that lit up the entire room.  I was so excited to see her again and to finally get my hands on her Saddles and Spells Series .  I found one of her quotes that I think are words to live by.  "Life is too short to stand by and watch everyone else live your dreams. The bigger the dream, the bigger the adventure!"  Her hard work and dedication is paying off and I am so glad I can support her dream of being an author and getting her stories out into the world.  If you would like to follow her journey go to her Facebook page or her Amazon author page.

I would like to introduce author Becca Vincenza.  I have known her since she released her very first book.  To see where she is today is a joy to behold.  Not only has she grown in leaps and bounds, but she continues to be one of the nicest people I know.  One of her most recent series released is a collaboration with author M.J. Haag called The Resurrection Chronicles.  I am looking forward to reading this series.  She had me at zombie-like plague!  You can find out more on her Amazon author page or on Facebook .

Author Misty Provencher is so freaking funny.  Whenever you take a photo, you may just have an extra person in the background smiling from ear to ear.  *See photo below.  LOL That's just one of the many reasons I love her. 

Misty writes in many genres, so there is something for everyone.  Her newest release is Weeds of Detroit written under the name Misty Paquette.  It's written about a teenage runaway and the harshness of life on your own in Detroit, which is based on true events.  To follow Misty please go to her Amazon author page or on Facebook .

Author Ellie Wade in the photo with my mother who absolutely loves her Choices Series is a truly lovely person on the inside and out.It's always a pleasure to see her at each book convention.

I am addicted to her Flawed Hearts Series.  Both series are Contemporary Romance and filled with emotion, struggles and finding true love.  Of course there is so much more to her books, but you have to read them to find out!  Please look her up on Amazon or Facebook.
