Hump Day Updates–Goodies for YOU!

The Emerald City Writers’ Conference was A-freaking-mazing.

I fangirl gushed over Julia Quinn. I got a pic with her!! (To post soon.) I even remembered to tell her that I cried at the end of When He Was Wicked. *sigh* I still get choked up over it.

I dressed as Zombie Audrey Hepburn–so right, so very wrong.

I met and now stalk the awesomely funny Sarah Wendell, of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, who held up a giant pair of panties in her keynote speech. Her example of our big girl panties. Gotta wear ‘em! Gotta love a gal with guts. I also scored a copy of her book. Sweet!

I got lots o goodies, in fact!

That I am giving away. Cuz I heart you!!

The goodies include:

  • Night Veil by Yasmine Galenorn
  • Blood Trinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon & Dianna Love
  • Everything I Know About Love I Learned From Reading Romance Novels by Sarah Wendell
  • Chances Are by Shelli Stevens
  • Tsunami Blue by Gayle Ann Williams
  • Love is Murder by Allison Brennan
  • Plus some HOT Club Swag from me.

Want a shot at these goodies? All you have to do is comment, telling me what you are grateful for this holiday season.

I’m grateful for…YOU!

:}Amber Scott

PS: I’ll draw a winner next Wednesday so share, comment and keep the love alive til then.

PPS: You get double entry if you share this, tell me, or/and are in my secret (sortof) Facebook group, The HOT Club.

    Hi Amber, I am grateful for all mu family and friends. I seem to be more of a hermit, which is more wierd whem you thing of my job is talking with total strangers and asking questions about ther household, rent and finances. But when I get home I love to curl up with a good book. Just thankful to be alive.

    I’m grateful for so many things in this world. Phones so I can talk to my family, we all live in different states, my neighbors and friends who surround me with friendship and love because my family lives so far away.

    My books, they keep my mind on different places and people . My dog Charlie and my cat Jake who love to cuddle while I read those stories. And the authors ,like you ,who make it possible for me to go to different worlds and places!

    And last but certainly not least in my thoughts is my husband, he’s my first thought in the morning and I think about him during the day and he’s the last thing I think about at night. My husband who spoils me rotten, yes I’d be the first to say so! Lol

    • Word to the chocolate! And to family, too. Huggers!

  13. I am thankful for my husband. He is the only person to truly “Get Me.” It only took a previous marriage and 31 years of life to find him (actually, he found me) but he was so worth the wait.

    Im greatful for my family and friends! Most especially my husband who lets me continue to explore who I want to be when I grow up and let’s me buy all the books I want ( well most anyway) :) and my kids for thinking Im the best mom ever.

    November 3, 2011 at 8:35 am

    • Aw! Good husbands buy books not flowers. And it is a rare breed that shares you with invisible people in your head.

    Well this Hot Club HOTee is certainly glad you had such a good time at the conference. It is so fun to be able to enjoy it vicariously through you. I look forward to seeing the pic of your HOTee zombie Hepburn self :) Of course this season always makes us take a moment to be grateful for all of the wonderful things in this world. Of course family and home are at the top of the list as is only as it should be, but this year I am especially thankful for the book blogging community and authors that have allowed me to share their journeys, enjoy their books, and embraced my hand of friendship. What better blessing is there at this season or all year round is sharing joy with friends.


    November 3, 2011 at 12:19 am

    • I completely agree, Denise. What a warm, generous community of book lovers!

      November 3, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    • Oh, Jennifer! I wish you an amazing year to come. Hang in there, darlin!

  19. I’m grateful for you, too, Amber! :) And Karen, and all my other writing buddies who help keep me inspired.
