RWA Books Giveaway

By Nicole

I have a few more books from RWA to giveaway!! Viv came home with a bunch of books, so these three are up for grabs. Just comment here on the blog about your favorite (or dream) author encounter would be. I was lucky enough to take Viv out to lunch at a Mexican restaurant a few years ago when her family traveled through my state. I can’t remember if we had margaritas or not, but if we didn’t, I’m thinking we need to fix that, immediately!

**Please note that entries will only be accepted from comments on the blog until August 31st.
