Lani Diane Rich giveaway

I dared a publisher book signing. . . more about that later, but Lani generously let me take three of her books for a giveaway to share the Lani joy (she has something like three RITA nominations and one RITA win so far) plus the latest Lani book which a cruel cruel world has intervened and prevented me from reading in the past two months since it has been out:The Comeback Kiss (I am half in love with Finn already from Maybe Baby).

Anyone not in Atlanta leaving a comment on this post only will be entered into a drawing for all three books by the very fabulous in person, online, and on-the-page Lani: Maybe Baby, Ex and the Single Girl, and Time Off for Good Behavior.

Okay off to the final workshop of the conference, more later.

Those big lunches are exhausting. Too much food and waaay to much noise.

Fun stuff. Love lani. We did our first Nano together and were both in a chat room with other nanoist racing each other. She was working on her first selling book, Time Off for Good Behavior. Hers sold. Mine is in a hidden file where no one can find it:)

Oh! How fun! I haven't read any of Lani's books yet, so I'd love to win them.

p.s. -- My verification word is frighteningly close to swimsuit, ew!

thanks for the national updates- it's been cool to put faces with names from JCF!

How nice of Lani! What a sweetie pie. I own all of Lani's books (and I love them) and I've already won. So, if you draw my name, toss it back. I just wanted to comment on Lani's niceness and talent.

Love the Nano story Teri. :) If I ever wrote anything that fast, it would be next to yours in the file too.

Haven't read Lani yet, but she sounds fun and very sweet. Really need to give her a try...

Hope I win! ;)

Thank you so much for sharing a glimpse of National with us. I love all the candid shots and finally putting names & faces together.

I just recently finished Time Off by Lani and look forward to her other books. The Cherry List has been a wonderful reference for so many great books.

I've heard a lot about Lani, but have yet to read any of her books. And I'm suffering from Cherry Convention Envy :( but I appreciate you giving the rest of us glimpses!

Thanks for all the juicy news about the conference. I'm so jealous that I'm not there to hang out with my RWA chapter and root them on with their RITA nominations. Better luck next year. :)

Hi, this is my first time here. Thanks for the sharing about the RWA. I find it all very interesting even though I'm just a reader.

I got here from Cherry Red's site, and am lovin this place. You are so awesome to do this for all of us "not-lantians"!
See, I've been keeping myself totally busy since Tuesday night, hoping to avoid the computer and any chance to get bummed that I'm not THERE! So this is the first time I've let myself check. And even though I really want to be THERE, I am so excited for all of you that get to be THERE. You're LTD for all of us!!

BLOGGER just hates me today!

Thanks SO much for blogging National. It's been great reading about it! I love Lani's books. I've read Maybe Baby and Comeback Kiss so far. Would love to win the other two!

Hope you had fun! I loved the Comeback Kiss, but I that's the only one I've read so far.

wah, this contest is so exciting! thank you so much for taking the time to hold it.

i've only read lani's narration of moving into her new house from the JCF, aka Cherries Yahoo!Group; i loved it so much, quite sadly, i even joined in the request to hear about her first time (*still shamed).

anyhow, i'd love to read those three books.
