I attended a booksigning last weekend at the New England Romance Writer's conference in Massachusetts. I sat at the table with a stack of my book Cradle of Secrets along with a pile of Craftie Ladies of Suspense highlighter/pens and a stack of Steeple Hill bookmarks. I'd also put these items on the "goodie" table outside the conference workshops and they were snatched up as soon as I put them down!
Anyway, I was sitting there and people continued to remark about how much they loved the Craftie Ladies of Suspense pen/highlighters until one woman came to the table and told me she already had one. I asked her if she'd picked it up on the "goodie" table and she said no, she'd picked it up at Stop and Shop when she bought my book. She was stopping by to tell me how much she enjoyed Cradle of Secrets and couldn't wait for the sequel, Her Only Protector, and oh, by the way, she loved the pen/highlighter.
See, when Cradle of Secrets hit the shelves, I combed the area around where I live and I signed as many books as I could so readers could have a signed copy. I also left stacks of bookmarks and Craftie Ladies of Suspense pens. I was so thrilled that this reader was able to pick them up since most of the people I hand deliver the pens to are writers. So if you are a reader and would like a Craftie Ladie of Suspense pen/highlighter, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and I'll send one right out to you. I have about 50 pen/highlighters left so it will be on a first come, first serve basis until I get my new batch. This is to thank you for checking out our blog and reading Love Inspired Suspense books.
Until next time, many blessings to you! Lisa Mondello
