More from the Atlanta Author Occasion

I completely forgot to include this in my previous post!  I blame it on being starstruck this past weekend.  My mind is only now starting to find it's way back home.

Our darling duo made a small video clip at the Atlanta author signing dedicated to everyone who couldn't make it there to meet them.

Check it out!

If you can't see the embedded post above, click on THIS LINK.

They are such sweethearts!!!

One of the girls from Fizzle Force (Krystal P) used that video and compiled some of the pictures from the event and put together this little video:

That event was just so much fun!  If they tour again anywhere near my home, you can bet I'll be there!

Here's a little LiLo moment for you, just because I've got LiLo on my mind lately.

"Our love is rare. It’s one I can’t abandon, even if I tried. When she screams, an identical one rips through me. When she cries, my world rains with grief. When she loves, I truly, truly fly."

Atlanta Author Occasion: Krista & Becca's First Author Signing Event!

This past weekend has been a blast and will go down in history as one of the best weekends everrrrrr!  If you haven't heard, Krista & Becca attended their very first author signing event in their hometown, Atlanta, Georgia!!

The Atlanta Author Occasion was held at the Loews Hotel in Midtown Atlanta on Saturday, August 23rd 2014.  Here is a picture of Krista & Becca's booth

Meeting Krista & Becca was pretty surreal!  They are just as cool as they are in their videos and even more beautiful, laid back, and super nice in person!  They were giving away some pretty sweet swag: bookmarks, pens, koozies, and if you have a book with the old cover, you also get an awesome Fizz Life t-shirt!

I was fortunate enough to be able to catch them before the signing to take some pictures.  My baby girl was even more excited to meet them than I was!

I couldn't miss the opportunity to get this photo taken for +Ate Lanie, from Musings of the Book-a-holic Fairies, Inc., who is my partner-in-crime in the Addicted Series Facebook Group
Just look at these beauties!!!  And they say they're not photogenic!
And one more for our dear friend, Siiri, from Little Pieces of Imagination!

I think I did pretty well at keeping my composure and holding back my excitement.  I was calm and collected on the outside, when really, I wanted to do this

At least, I don't recall doing that...

Here are some more pictures taken from the event.

After the event, we had dinner with the girls.  Krista & Becca had a surprise flower crown for everyone at the dinner.

They even made one for my little girl!

My precious...

Krista & Becca's Fizzle Force

If you follow this blog religiously for Addicted Series updates, I'm so sorry I have been quiet lately.  My kiddo just started school this week so I've been busy getting her prepared.

Now that she's on her third day of school and doing well, I've got a little bit of breathing room.

So, FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS - the fans have spoken and we now have a brand-spankin-new fandom name!  Woot woot!!

Direct from Krista & Becca, HELLO FIZZLE FORCE!!!

I love that name!  It has a nice superhero ring to it and I'm sure Lily and Lo are thrilled of this fandom name!  Before Krista & Becca had the poll, my darling Siiri (from Little Pieces of Imagination) and I were busy trying to put a couple of buttons together for Fizzle Force and Addicted Darlings.  Since Addicted Darlings didn't win, we don't see the need to post any of the draft buttons we were working on for it.  Here's what we put together for Fizzle Force

Siiri did most of the work.  I just threw some ideas to her and sent her some images to use. 

NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS - Krista & Becca had a cover reveal of their new standalone romance book, Amour Amour!!!  In case you missed any of the blog posts or their announcement on Facbook, here is yet another beautiful cover by the super talented Krista!  This book is due to be released December 12, 2014.

Amour Amour Cover Reveal

FINAL ORDER OF BUSINESS - Atlanta Author Occasion this Saturday, August 23, 2014.  Krista & Becca will be attending their very first author signing event!!  They will be selling copies of the entire Addicted series (including the newly released Thrive) and will be giving away tons of swag and merchandise at their booth!

If you haven't heard anything about this event, click HERE to go to the Facebook Event page, click HERE for more information, and click HERE to register.

After the event, we will be having dinner and discussions with the dynamite duo.  You must be a member of the Addicted Series Facebook Group in order to RSVP to this dinner event!

Post adjourned!  May the force be with you!

THRIVE is Now Available on Paperback!

The wait is finally over and you can now add Thrive to your bookshelf!  Just look at this beautiful cover!

Title: Thrive
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Series: Addicted #2.5
Pub Date: July 18, 2014


Two years will change them forever.

When rumors spread like wildfire—like having three-ways with her boyfriend’s rock climbing brother—Lily Calloway spirals into a dark place. Her bedroom. Loren Hale is more confident and determined to keep their sex life private, even from their friends, and he helps Lily in the only way he knows how. But how much love is too much?

Their lives are filmed, watched, and criticized. And through it all, Lily and Loren have to face enemies they never thought they’d see, demons they don’t know if they should bury, and setbacks they didn’t think they’d meet. Not this soon.

And one rumor could be too much for them to handle. It will test their greatest limitations, and if they don’t hold onto each other, someone is going to drown.

A full-length New Adult Romance that bridges the gap between the second and third books. Thrive must be read before Addicted After All if you have not read the Calloway Sisters spin-off

Happy Birthday Rose!

So, I've been thinking...what do you get a girl who has everything?  Rose Calloway is smart, beautiful, successful, rich, and has an amazing and swoon-worthy man who's perfect for her in every way!  What else could she possibly want and need?

Then, I remembered that she spends a lot of her time worrying about her fashion line, Calloway Couture.  So, as a gift for her birthday (because she wouldn't be asking for help from anyone!), I've put together this commercial for Calloway Couture.

Happy Birthday Rose!  Have a fabulous and stylish day!  I hope you enjoy it!

Classic, Chic, Confident

Now, with help from the super generous and very talented Jennifer Ngo (@Jae_Booklover -- the poster below is done by her), there is a Giveaway at the end of this post!

Mauve Fairy from Musings of the Book-a-holic Fairies, Inc., my partner-in-crime in All About the Addicted Series and Krista & Becca Ritchie Facebook page, also has a few gifts of her own for Rose.
