Gonna Be A Crazy 2 Weeks!

Okay, folks, next 2 weeks will be a little bit crazy. Here's the agenda:

1) I'll be getting ready for the New Jersey RWA Put Your Heart In A Book Conference, Oct 23-24. This includes hair appointment, shopping for clothes other than sweats and T-shirts, getting the NECRWA goody basket ready (I'm on the promo committee!), and getting my husband mentally prepped to take care of the children without me for three days. Oy.

2) Soooo looking forward to Michelle Picard's book launch for her debut novel, Ruling Eden. This book is an adventure...exciting first person fantasy/romance. High rockability rating! My review will be up next week, and please stop by to visit with Michelle on Thursday, Oct. 29 for an interview and give-away.

3) Starting on Monday, Oct. 26, it's a Klaus Brothers Invasion! The Klaus Brothers will be visiting ("taking over") Penelope's for five consecutive Mondays. They wanted to introduce themselves before my debut novel Sweet Inspiration comes out on Dec. 2 (it's a light paranormal romance about the Klaus family in the North Pole...yeah, that Klaus family!). Oskar Klaus, the green-haired, punky snowboarding youngest brother will be hanging out first, chatting with visitors and giving away an Amazon gift card to one lucky commenter. Here's the schedule...

-Oct. 26: Oskar Klaus
-Nov. 2: Gregor Klaus
-Nov. 9: Sven Klaus
-Nov. 16: Wolfie Klaus
-Nov. 23: Nicholas Klaus

Each Monday for five weeks, the Klaus boys will be giving away Amazon gift cards, and Nicholas will also be giving away a sweet holiday treat on Nov. 23. Please stop by and hassle these guys! Believe me, they can take it (and they can dish it out, too!).

I'm tired already and it's only Monday morning. Hope everyone has a great week!
Ciao, Penelope

Wow - you do have a lot going on! Looking forward to meeting the Klaus brothers!

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

Penelope - sounds great! I'm going to try and go to that Book Fair on the 25th! Maybe I'll see you! Will you be there? I've never been to one yet, but since it's so close to me, I have no excuse not to go!

Penny Watson said...

Patti...wait till you see the smoking hot photos I've chosen for the boys. Yum!

Julie...I would be so psyched to meet you in person! I think the book fair is on Sat Oct 24, from 4-5:30, and I will def. be around. You can meet The Quirky Ladies for an appletini if you'd like! Here's the link...
Let me know if you're going, and I'll send you my cell number! Weeee!

How cooool!

Michelle Picard said...

The Klaus brothers and your visitors are going to have a blast! I can't wait. They are a rowdy bunch, but I think we can all handle it.

Penny Watson said...

Hi Juju and Michelle! Thanks for stopping by. The Klaus brothers are already fighting about the order of their days. Everyone wants to go first. Except Nicholas. He's "busy" with Lucy. They said they were cooking, but I don't believe them. :)

Julie at Outlandish Dreaming said...

Penelope - yes, I'll definitely be there, email me your cell!

I meant to say earlier, I'm totally looking forward to all the Klaus Brothers too! Sounds great - I'm eager to meet them all on your blog!

Leontine said...

I'll be sure to be among the welcoming committee for these Klaus brothers. *grin* Have fun at the RWA and looking forward to your review of Ruling Eden!

Penny Watson said...

Julie--I'm emailing you my cell phone no. today!

Leontine-- Thanks a lot...can't wait for the conference. I just got 120 little candy tins with my book cover on them. So fun!

Oskar Klaus will be psyched to meet you! :)
