15+ Books and Swag from the NJ Put Your Heart in a Book Conference

Share this!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the New Jersey Romance Writers Put Your Heart in a Book Conference.  Had a great time and I’m bringing home lots of great experiences!  Had the opportunity to chat with some favorite authors of mine, as well as meeting and even falling in love with others I’ve never read.

One of my favorite moments this past weekend, and I just have to share, was on Saturday night when we went to dinner with Cathy Maxwell, Elizabeth Hoyt, Tina Gabrielle and Shirley Hailstock.  The wonderful Cathy Maxwell had brought books for everyone there, so we had books on the table, and when our waitress came over to introduce herself that was the first thing that caught her eye.  She was a book lover and was looking for something else to read, so she ended up going home with a signed copy of Cathy Maxwell’s book.


I also had some squeezing moments with Shiloh Walker/J.C. Daniels, who was one of the reasons I attended the conference anyway.  I got a chance to have my book club ladies chat with her for a bit.  It’s always a highlight to pick an author’s brain a bit and understand how they create the stories we love.


And of course, I brought back lots of goodies.  For myself, my UTC ladies and for you guys as well.  We have a huge pack of goodies for ONE lucky winner! Prize includes a whole bunch of assorted swag, two bags (one conference bag and a Terry Brisbin bag) and the following books:

* Bella Andre – Can’t Help Falling in Love
* J.K. Beck – When Blood Calls
* Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway – The Lady Most Likely
* Eloisa James – Kiss Me, Annabel
* Susan Wiggs – The Drifter
* Dee Davis – Double Danger (SIGNED)
* Sally Mackenzie – Bedding Lord Ned (SIGNED)
* Laura Kaye – Hard As It Gets (SIGNED)
* Christi Barth – Planning For Love (SIGNED)
* Diana Cosby – His Captive (SIGNED)
* Shirley Hailstock – The Right Wedding Gown (SIGNED)
* C.H. Admirand – A Wedding in Apple Grove (SIGNED)
* C.H. Admirand – One Day in Apple Grove (SIGNED)
* Eloisa James – Fairy Tale Sampler
* Stephanie Draven – It Stings So Sweet (SIGNED)
* Lea Nolan – Conjure
* Laura Kaye – West of Want (SIGNED)
