RT Convention Cometh!

Howdy all! How are things by you? Things are pretty awesome over by me. I just got a new car and I've lost a total of 70lbs since my whole weight loss saga began. I had to go shopping for all new clothes. And what's really awesome about that is in a few months I'll probably have to do it all over again!

But enough about that. I have a winner from last month's comment contest. The winner gets an ARC of my new book RAPTURE. This one may be my all time favorite written book and I really hope you guys like it to. Remember it hits shelves June 30th. Okay the lucky winner needs to email me at with their full name and address.

And the winner on the AAD blog is: Kim S. Congrats Kim!
And the winner on my home blog is: Whitney

Now, the Romantic Times Convention is just around the corner! Yay! Anyone who is going has to remember to come to my Sunrise and Shadowdwellers Morning Mixer! You wouldn't think those two things would go together, but I assure you they do. We're going to have lots of fun and I spent a fortune on my goody bags! I want you all to leave very happy :) Also, me and my gf's are all going to be wearing saris in honor of the Shadowdweller women's favored mode of dress. I hear Stella Price's is gorgeous and I know mine is stunning. I only hope I do it justice.

Now I'm feeling generous, so I'm going to give away two more ARCs. Same rules as last time. All you have to do is comment either here or on my home blog site. Or heck, do both if you like! Good luck! And don;t forget to check out the Authors After Dark Event. I know I must have some tri-state area fans out there somewhere!

Hugs and Kitties

Wow, Jacquelyn, that's amazing! 70 lbs is a lot, and I applaud you, both for going through with the surgery, and for your results. I know it's probably not always easy, but hang in there. :)

Argh, one of these years I'm going to have to put money (and time, if that's even possible) aside to go to the RT convention, along with a few of the other big yearly ones. They sound like so much fun! However, I'm sure that I'd end up spending far too much money on the books available.... But I'd risk it! ;)

Congrats the winners of the previous contest. :) I'm very green with envy!

Big congrats Kim & Whitney! Enjoy the books.

Jacki, big congrats on the weight loss.

Woohoo only a few more days till the RT. Looking forward to meet you again. Would you still like German chocolate or is the temptation too big?

Unknown said...

Ughhhhh! You gotta give me your secret to the weight loss, I am down 20 pounds and it just seems to have stopped, I cannot get lower than that. I also think you should adopt me so that when I do lose all my weight, you can take me shopping! That sounds like an awesome deal don't you think? lol

Congrats to the winners of the contest before this one!

Lori Ann said...

That weight loss is absolutely terrific news. Congrats!

MJ said...

woo hoo. That is great 70 pounds!!! Oh and shopping fun, fun, fun!
I so can't wait for Rapture.

Keep up the good work and the writing. Love your books.


Kathy said...

Congrats on the 70 lbs. What a great reason to have to go out and buy a new wardrobe!

Have a great time at RT, one of these years I'm going to make it there.

Hi Jacki! I can't wait to see you at RT and hope you'll spill about the next Shadowdweller books and your upcoming projects!


CinnamonGirl74 said...

Hi, Jacki! Glad to know you're doing so well and that your surgery was such a success! I wish I could go to an event, but school is taking up most of my time, these days. It's just been kicking my butt. Hopefully, someday down the road, I will have the opportunity to go to one of your spectacular events! It sounds like you all are going to have so much fun! I hope all of your kitties are well. I can't wait for your new release! I LOVED Ecstasy!! All My Best - Ness

Jennifer K. said...
