I started in LA for the Romance Writers of America conference. I had such fun meeting my fellow Brava authors, Mia Marlowe, Rebecca Zanetti, Mary Wine and Joan Swan. There were over two thousand writers at the conference and I have to say it was amazing to meet my idols, Lorraine Heath, Shana Galen, Joanna Bourne and Courtney Milan. (Rebecca and I at Kensington cocktail night RWA).
I then traveled on to Las Vegas where I had my first Barnes and Noble book signing. Here’s a picture of me and the other authors at the signing. Everyone was really friendly and it was lovely to hear how much my readers loved Invitation to Ruin. Did you know that Invitation to Ruin WON the RomCon Readers Crown 2012 for Best Historical? Thank you to all the readers who loved it. I hope you enjoy Invitation to Scandal as much. (I’m bottom right sitting down).
Speaking of my readers, I have some exciting news and prizes. I’m launching my search for Bron’s ‘?’ Street Team.
For those of you not familiar with what a Street Team is, it’s a group of people who are on the “in” of promoting my work/me. They’re people who share the book love, who go above and beyond, and pretty much think my Regency World stories are fabulous. You love them so much that when it comes to my bookish stuff and getting the word out you’re like 007 – you’re on the case, shakin’ not stirred!
As a founding member of Bron’s ? Street Team, you’ll get to help me replace the ? – What should my Street Team be called?
Suggest a name and the winning entry in the competition to NAME my Street Team will earn a $50 Gift Card from B&N or Amazon.
- Once we have the name, I’ll create an exclusive blog button identifying you as a member of Bron’s ? Street Team.
- I’ll send you a ‘Reading is Sexy’ tank top with a personal note from Bronwen
- A voucher for a FREE eBook novella in Bron’s Wicked Wager Trilogy
- For those of you who are bloggers, you’ll get ARC’s of each new title before the other bloggers get it.
- All active members will be listed in the acknowledgement section of my next book – Invitation to Passion (released spring 2013).
- A chance to name a character after you in one of my books.
- A chance to win autographed books from various authors (not just me) in one off draws for Street Team members only. All Street Team members will be automatically entered.
- A drawing each release month for a $25 gift card with TWO WINNERS!
- A date with Hugh Jackman. Just kidding, but if I ever get to meet him I’ll ask for you though.
- An invite to my Facebook ? Street Team group when it’s set up – we need a name first-where we can chat about everything and anything, including fun street tactics. It’s a place where I’ll be happy to answers any questions about writing, the business, or my books – or your books.
And the best for last, help me reach the top 50 of the NY Times Best Sellers list and I’ll draw two of my active Street Team members to come and stay for 5 nights in my Hawke’s Bay ‘Beach Vines’ villa in New Zealand. It overlooks the sea, set in amongst vineyards and has a swimming pool. That’s airfares (from where you live, to where I live) and accommodation! That’s some prize to win. Come and see where I create my stories. Take a look at the view! The prize is open until I make it into the top 50 of the NY Times list. A big ask, but we can do it!
