New Adult Sleepover Weekend #NASW

It was a blast attending the New Adult Sleepover Weekend 12/6 – 12/8 in Savannah, Georgia. 


For those of you unfamiliar with the genre of “New Adult”, it refers to novels with characters ages 17-27. And it often includes some smokin’ hot romance!

I brought copies of my NA swimming romance Streamline, and met some fabulous authors and readers.

I’d chatted with author RL Griffin online and read her intriguing novel By a Thread, so it was a pleasure to join her for the Suspense panel (my first author panel). We had a good diversity of genres represented, and my favorite comment was RL drawling, “Y’all, Streamline had so much drama it was like a Lifetime movie!”

Then came the book signing, where I celebrated my Navy novel:

Saturday evening capped off with a pajama party. Here I am in my robe with the super friendly author Kelsey Ketch:


The best part of Savannah was seeing my sister Susan, who lives nearby in South Carolina. Oh, and the weather was pretty awesome too. Here are Susan and my nephew doggie Auggie:


The long weekend ended all too soon, and I had to return to snowy Ohio. Boo!


Thank you to Stella Price and Authors After Dark for organizing the New Adult Sleepover Weekend.

Get Ready for the New Adult Sleepover Weekend!


I’m stoked to be a featured author at the New Adult Sleepover Weekend, December 6-8, in Savannah, Georgia.

Do you want to win a gift basket filled with a signed copy of Streamline, swim caps, and candy? A personalized swim lesson from a NCAA Division III champion in the Riverfront Marriott hotel pool? I’ll give these and other prizes away on Friday night 12/6/13.


On Saturday, I’ll join R.L. Griffin and other awesome authors for a Suspense panel at 10:00 a.m.

Then I’ll sign print copies of my NA swimming romance murder mystery Streamline at the Book Fair from Noon to 3:00.



Saturday night promises to be a blast with a pajama party and karaoke.

We hope to see you there! It’s not too late to register for the weekend or for Saturday passes HERE.
