Even cooler, because my sister was with me that night, and she was the one living in NYC, she got to go to the release party Cara had for the next book in the series, Spellcaster. And she got to try the purple velvet cupcakes that I had heard about on Twitter when the first book came out.
When I returned to NYC in June for BEA, I got to hang out with her again at the bar that her husband owns. And I did get to see her at BEA as well!
I am a huge fan of her books, and will hand sell them at my store, and suggest them to my students at school when they are looking for something to read, and I know that paranormal romance is up their alley. So I emailed Cara and asked if she wouldn't mind writing a little paragraph for me, and here it is:
I had the very welcome opportunity to meet Lisa when she came to New York last
December to visit her sister. She was as lovely as she seemed on Twitter, and let
me tell you, Lisa’s blog is very aptly named! Lisa truly does love literature. She has
a true passion, love and respect for YA, and it shows in her thoughtful blog. I was
thrilled when we got to hang again at BEA this past year. Congrats on three years,
Lisa — here’s to many, many more!
Thanks Cara for taking the time to write that for me! Along with my promoting her books, for anyone who hasn't read the first one yet, Spellbound, I am running a giveaway, sign up below!
And when you're done signing up for that, be sure to go to my main blogoversary giveaway for a Barnes and Noble gift card, still worth $30, because I still haven't reached the 600 follower mark yet, when I will bump it to $40. So go sign up for that HERE!
