#HarlequinTeenPreview Recap & Giveaway!



Last night was amazing!

I cannot thank HarlequinTeen enough for inviting me to such a wonderful event, and giving me the chance to meet and mingle with two of my favorite authors.

There was wine, cheese, these really good little tortilla chips with guacamole and shrimp on it, steak on a stick, and a lot of other yummy food. Why is it I always get distracted by food? LOL!

Anyway, I also got to meet a lot of editors and publishers that I hadn't met before, as well as some new bloggers and readers. It was really nice seeing some familiar faces, too.

The event was a HUGE success and I am so happy I was there, and got the chance to hear Julie Kagawa's big news before the rest of the world. Yes. I feel super special. Leave me on my high horse! LOL!

Here is a nice recap of last night via photos, as well as three videos. One is Jennifer L. Armentrout telling us a little bit about WHITE HOT KISS, and what we can expect from the series. The other is of Julie Kagawa revealing her big news about TALON. She also goes into detail about what the series is about.

You don't want to miss it!

And of course we have a nice giveaway at the end. :)





Julie Kagawa's big reveal!  


Jennifer L. Armentrout's new series The Dark Elements! WHITE HOT KISS is book one and will be released February 25th, 2014! There is a pre-novella being released on December 1st, Bitter Sweet Love.


Do you see this view? It was breath taking! I am a New Yorker at heart, but never seen it from this point of view. Love NYC!
