Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel
Today, being Friday, I’m taking the opportunity to talk about some of the excitement that’s been happening over the past week or so.
Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference ended last Sunday. We had 5 days of learning, chatting and sharing ideas.
This is the second year that I’ve attended the conference. This year I had the pleasure of not only attending, but actually participating on several panel. I also had the honor of moderating the panel with Kristen Lanb. If you haven’t read one of her books, at least drop by her blog and enjoy what she has to share.
When this conference comes around next year, sign up and have fun with us!
Second piece of new on the slate for today is to remind everyone of the anniversary party over at The Romance Reviews. I’ve been reviewing for them for a while, and they know how to throw a good bookish party! The party continues til the end of the month. Drop by and score some prizes.
The last thing to comment on is the box that I received this week. You see, I entered a contest a bit ago to become an Avon Addict and I won a spot! Imagine my surprise as I don’t usually win anything. An Avon Addict gets free ebooks, but so far I haven’t been able to read any of them as they are only good for 10 days and I have too many other reading commitments. A courier showed up at my door earlier in the week with a bit box of goodies! The picture doesn’t do this justice. I got a cozy blanket with the Avon logo on it. I got a bunch of swag for various books. I got a copy of How Miss Rutherford Got Her Goove Back by Sophie Barnes, Confessions of a Slightly neurotic Hitwoman by JB Lynn and The Cowboy Take s Bride by Lori Wilde. I also got 5 copies of Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash. I think I feel a giveaway coming on!
I hope you have all had a great week, and drop back by on Saturday for Steamy Saturday!

Great post. I like the idea of recapping what’s happening out there.
I was bummed. I had signed up the the Avon Addicts, but did not win. Some great books and awesome blanket. Look forward to your giveaway for Between the Duke book. Have heard great things about it. Look forward to your review of How Miss Rutherford Got Her Groove Back. I have been wanting to read it, this is a new author for me.
You know me Chris! Spread the love! I’ll be giving everything away eventually…..well except the blankie 🙂 It’s soft and comfy! I am so looking forward to reading about Miss Rutherford. I read about this book on Facebook but didn’t buy it because my TBR is so huge…..I have a feeling that my books will get out of order soon 🙂
