AUTL Book Signing

I had a great time this past weekend! The AUTL signing was held on Saturday, March 22nd at the Hilton in Universal City, Ca. It was an intimate setting that allowed plenty of time to meet readers, bloggers, and amazing authors.

I had two awesome assistants. My wonderful husband and dear friend who I finally got to meet for the first time. (We met through Instagram several months ago.) She’s real! She’s really REAL! Lol!


I had the pleasure to sit between two great authors, Carlie Sexton and Tania Penn. My husband spoke with Carlie first and later told me I HAD to listen to her story. He was right. If you don’t know her, look her up! Now, I have to read her books since they’re based off actual jaw dropping events. And Tania…she had to have been a girl scout as a child…she was so well prepared! Such a PRO! (I was definitely taking notes.) A million thanks for the wine…it definitely came in handy. She writes different genres, I’m excited to read her books as well.

Although I didn’t have a chance to meet all the signing authors, the ones who I did meet were really nice and friendly. Can I just say that if awards were given for the most BAD ASS shoes the winner should have been author Jenna Galicki…her shoes were AMAZING!!!

I also had the privilege of meeting members and bloggers from the SMI Book Club and a Naughty Smutty Book blog (just to name a few). These ladies were absolutely fabulous!



As I was busy interacting with readers and bloggers, my wonderful husband did me a huge favor and collected book swag on my behalf and had my PINNED UP tote bag signed by all the authors. Yes, I absolutely love this man!



The AUTL event ended with raffles of various cool prizes and a group picture with all the authors. A special thanks to authors Dani Hart and S. C. Ellington for allowing me to be a part of such a great event for such a worthy cause. You ladies are fabulous and I truly appreciate all your time and effort in putting this signing together. A million thanks!!!


After the book signing, my assistant and I were THIRSTY from all the chatting we did. Staying hydrated was a must!


We ended our evening at Camacho’s Cantina. Overall, it was a fabulous day spent meeting new people and making new friends.


WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! How could I forget about dessert? Hello eye candy! (Two of the book cover models that attended AUTL)


Seeeeee…I told you I had a blast! I hope to see you at my next book signing in Houston, Texas this November! Oh, but if you’ll be at the San Francisco signing…I’ll be there too…fangirling all over those amazing authors! Lol! I hope to see you there.

Last, but most definitely not least…I’d like to thank everyone who purchased my book and complimented my book covers. Your kind words truly melted my heart. I hope you give the Pinned Up trilogy a chance and enjoy my characters along with their stories. Happy reading!
