RENT ONE OF MKA’s COTTAGES
The Breeze Inn
Did you know that MKA’s own beach cottages—that she has lovingly restored with her own hands and decorated with her own junking treasures—are available for rent?! You and yours can chillax in beautiful beach cottage
comfort in the very spot where MKA pens her bestselling novels. Smaller group? Choose
The Breeze Inn which MKA took from ramshackle to the pages of
BH&G in a year’s time back in 2009. For larger groups, check out MKA’s new treasure,
Ebbtide, which was featured in a huge spread in
HGTV Magazine. Contact
Tybee Island Vacation Rentals and book yourself in for the full MKA experience. Get yourself on “Tybee time” and discover the magic of slowing down.
Here we are, in the final weekend before my 24th novel,
THE WEEKENDERS, finally hits bookstores everywhere.
I have been as busy as I can ever remember being getting ready for the 30+ city tour that my publisher, St. Martin’s Press, is sending me on. You can see all the details of my book tour on the
Events & Appearances page of my website. There is also a snapshot of
the dates and cities with links in the left sidebar.
Of course, as is the norm each year, we’ll be kicking things off with
a massive launch party extravaganza! On Sunday May 15th I’ll
be at Atlanta’s super-cool Ponce City Market at 3:00pm for a couple fun hours of eating, drinking, dancing, mingling, and making merry with you—my friends and readers. If you’re in the area, come on out and party with me for a good cause. We’ll have goody-filled
swag bags and amazing raffle prizes with proceeds going to Atlanta BeltLine’s “Light the Line” initiative. Call or email
FoxTale Book Shoppe to reserve your tickets.
Why have just one launch party when you can have two?! On Monday, May 16th, I’ll head to Savannah where we will celebrate THE WEEKENDERS in grand fashion again at the elegant and hip Brice Hotel.
This shin-dig kicks
off at 5:30pm and there will be swag bags, a signature cocktail, and delicious food from local chefs, as well as raffle ticket drawings for amazing Savannah packages of local goods and services with 100% of proceeds going directly to the American Diabetes
The events after these launch parties are pretty much non-stop through the end of June. I hope there are some stops local to you that you can make it out to. I just love meeting readers!
There are a couple giveaways you should be sure to get in on before it’s too late…
May 17th, you can claim one of these cute embossed leather luggage tags, care of St. Martin’s Press, while supplies last. Details and entry form are
HERE. Act fast before they’re all gone!
Macmillan Audio also has a Vera Bradly “Weekender” bag stuffed full of my books and audiobooks up for grabs. There is no purchase necessary. Go
HERE to get more information and to enter to win.
Keep an eye on my Facebook page,
Twitter feed, and
Instagram account as I am always sharing news you can use and letting you know when there’s more
MKA swag and free goodies up for grabs.
OK, now I have to get back to packing for tour and attending to the last minute details for the upcoming mother of all launch parties.
Please know how much your support means to me. Thank you for reading my books and for always spreading the MKA love to your friends and family. I hope to see some of you while I’m out on the road this month and next.
Meanwhile, happy (almost) summer, happy reading, and happy #weekending!
Do you have a book club? If your club is reading one of my books, I would love to call in and join your discussion. You never know, I may even be able to drop by in person if it works out right.
