Sophie Jordan


New York Times Bestselling author, Sophie James, spoke at two of the Romance Writers of America workshops I attended this past weekend in Anaheim, California. Great to learn that Hidden, the final book in Sophie's Firelight series will debut on September 11, 2012.  You can learn more about Sophie at http://www.sophiejordan.net/ya/news.html. At Sophie's panel with Tera Lynn Childs, both authors gave away copies of their books. Sophie only had two, but I managed to get second in line, so my chance for getting a coveted copy seemed assured. While I waited for Sophie to finish with the woman ahead of me, another author swept around us and snatched up the second book. Shocking! And not good karma.

I know none of you would do such a thing!
Love and light,
Ariella

Tera Lynn Childs

Just returned from the Romance Writers of America National Conference in Anaheim, California, where I enjoyed workshops given by some of the biggest names in Young Adult Romantic Fiction. First up, Tera Lynn Childs. Years ago at National, I won a copy of her fun, Rita Award winner, oh. my. gods. Loved her spin on the Greek Goddesses! If you are a fan of Greek and other goddesses, be sure to check out my August Goddess Camp at The Mystic Dream. www.TheMysticDream.com

Tera's latest mermaid story, Just For Fins, is in bookstores now. To learn more, go to : http://teralynnchilds.com/

Better go. My editor is waiting for the sequel to Spell Check.

Time Travel ~ Who Would you Take With You?

Safety Not Guaranteed

What if you could time travel?
What if you could bring to life a fictional character and bring that person with you?  

I'd take Hermione Granger. She's brilliant, well-prepared, and would have my back in a wand fight.

Who would you choose and why?

Look for my author interview on August 1st at Long and Short Reviews. I'll be as surprised as you to learn which secrets are revealed. You may discover more about the love spell cast in Spell Check, and who it conjures up for Salem in Spell Struck. Or maybe the truth will be revealed about my scariest moment or my favorite food. Okay, I'll confess the latter ~ brownies!

Happy Fourth of July!

Love and Light,
Ariella
