Cover Reveal: Survival of the Ginnest by Aimee Horton

Cover reveal

When one half of the duo of VELVET MORNING PRESS– the lovely Adria Cimino- asked me to host the cover reveal for a new book VMP will be promoting- I said sure!

And now it’s Friday- The Dewey Readathon is happening tomorrow and while I won’t be participating- several of my buddies will be. I’ll be at Double Decker- listening to music and looking at arts & crafts!

I was gobsmacked at the size of the building, at all the booths, the events, how organized things was- and yes, the books that were being handed out, the books that were being dropped off in certain locations for people to grab, and the authors that were signing books. It was a book lover’s paradise.

Then I got home and I noticed on social media people complaining about folks attending BEA posting pictures of their book haul and I had some friends making comments about “all those FREE books I received while I was at BEA”…

Free? Let’s delve into this further, shall we? Continue reading
