Only a few things to report this Veteran’s Day.
First, thank you to our veterans. As I posted on Facebook this morning, some of the most wonderful, poignant and gratifying emails are from members of the military and their families thanking Nora for the difference her books make in getting through the strains of deployment.
Second, despite the fact we’re all so weary of the voting process in the US, here’s something you can endorse:
The Obsession and Brotherhood In Death made it into the semi-final round of the Goodreads Choice Awards 2016. The Obsession is in the Romance category while Brotherhood in Death is in Mystery/Thriller. Click the category name for your chance to vote. Voting is open until Sunday.
Nora’s at the spa right now, but will be back in time for Girls Night Out at Turn the Page Bookstore on Thursday, November 17 from 6-9 pm. I’ve copied/pasted the info from the Facebook page since it’s not on the TTP website:
It’s a fun evening of champagne, refreshments, treats, door prizes, and lots of mingling with authors, artists, and girls galore. Special guests Lorrie Schoettler of Stony Ridge Ridge Farm and Jeanne Brumbaugh will provide farm goodies and healing energy work. Also meet Joyce Taber, creator of the Nora Roberts’ jewelry collection.
TTP received permission to sell 50 copies of ISLAND OF GLASS at this event (limit one per attendee)! This is pretty exciting for us since the actual release date isn’t until Dec. 6.
Then be sure to wander around town and stop in the many participating businesses, including our lovely neighboring shop Gifts Inn BoonsBoro. Visit all of the participating businesses with your punch sheet and you’ll have a chance to win a free night’s stay at Inn BoonsBoro and other prizes.
There is no charge for this event, but books signed at Turn the Page must be purchased here. Call TTP at 301-432-4588 for more details.
Finally, I posted some quotes on Facebook this week. Enjoy!
