Busy, Busy Busy! Plus A Giveaway #giveaway

Good Morning Lovelies,

The last few weeks have been absolutely insane! As you know my second book, Persuasion Skills was released on July 5th, and things have been crazy ever since. 

Despite the modern myth, authors just don't have books released and the books are instantly seen and gobbled up by readers. Nope! Along with their publishers,  authors have a responsibility to get the word out on their books as well. So for the last few weeks I've been busy, busy, busy! 

If you've been following me on Facebook or checking my Twitter feed you know that I've been all over the interwebs these past few weeks. I've been doing guest posts and interviews at a bunch of different sites in the last 4 weeks I'm I'm straight up exhausted. Between the additional posts, drama at work and my current work in progress I haven't been able to find time to blog.

All this traveling was definitely worth it though. I'll be doing a catch up post shortly about how Persuasion Skills has been received so far by the reading public. Seriously, it is the next post to be pushed to publish.But since I've been so remiss in keeping you all up to date I decided to sponsor a giveaway! My bad behavior is your gain ;)

  2. Hi Ms. Laurel,

    I found both your stops at All Romance ARe Cafe and Nikki Prince informative and interesting. They left me intriuged and intrested in Persuasion Skills. I was already hooked on your novels from a stop and book review of Negotiating Skills at RNIC. I enjoyed that novel and can't wait to start reading this one. My e-mail address is

    1. Both of those stops were definitely fun. Nikki is a great host and the ARe stop was a great trope segment they had throughout the month of July. I was lucky to participate :)

    2. Hi Ms. Laurel,
