LoveLetters Convention

by Susan Carlisle

LoveLettersAs I reported in my June 11th and June 15th post I went to the LoveLetters Convention in Berlin, Germany in May. I was amazed at the number of readers who attended. The first morning of the event, a Saturday, I arrived forty-five minutes before the convention was to start and there was a line of over a hundred or more people standing outside the building. Security was letting about twenty people in at a time. A number of readers were already inside when I got in. I was shocked by the attendance and enthusiasm. But I have to admit I was excited to see them.

My first event was in a large room. I was on a panel about writing internationally that was moderated by the fabulous Annie West, a Harlequin Presents writer. Joanna Grant from Harlequin joined me along with a couple of German romance authors. We had a great discussion with a large crowd attending. A number of people asked questions which made the hour even more interesting. The main question for me was why I wrote medicals.

Side note: There was very little translating being done. The Germans spoke English often better than I did. They were tickled to get the English copies of my books. Many of them said they like to practice their English by reading in English. Also, they like the original version of the book feeling that the translated ones take away from the story.

My next event was also a panel. There were seven of us on it. Two of us from the US, two from Germany, one from Switzerland, France, and another from the Netherlands. We discussed writing for different countries, where we got our stories and again they were interested in why I wrote medicals. I enjoyed this panel as well.

BerlinThat afternoon I went on some blind dates. There were four different tables set up with four readers sitting at each table. Every ten minutes the time keeper would tell the author to rotate to another table. While I was at the table the readers had a chance to ask me questions. I thought it was a great way to meet them. I gave away books and goodies. They seemed happy with them and I think I made a couple of fans. (Horrible picture of me, I know, but you get the idea.)

My final thing for the day was a Meet and Greet. This was held outside under a tent. I stood at a high table and signed autographs. Sometimes it was the convention booklet and others times it would be something that the reader had put together.

The next morning started much the same. I was up early to get to the event. I had to walk because the Tram was down for service but I made it in time. The first thing on the agenda was a Q&A with Annie West. We sat on a sofa and discussed our books, characters and answered questions from the people who came to join us. This wasn’t heavily attended but I enjoyed it the most. Annie and I played off each other well and those that attended were really interested in what we said. I would love to do more of this type of thing.

I also did a reading from one of my books. It was nice as well. I took a few questions before it was the next person’s turn. I also did a workshop on Doctors in Popular Culture. Using power point, I showed different doctors on TV, movie and real life. I talked about how they had evolved and why I thought they were so popular. I didn’t have a great attendance but those that were there were engaged in what I was saying.

Berlin3The last event was the big book signing. For me book signings are either feast or famine. This event was no different. The larger name people were the first the readers went to. I worried up until the last fifteen minutes that I wouldn’t sign all my books. The readers were allowed to get three books then they had to go outside and get another three tickets and come though again. This went on until all the books were gone. In that last fifteen or so minutes I signed about forty books. All my books found a happy home.

The LoveLetters Convention was a tightly run ship. I was plenty busy, which I was glad to be because I had come so far I wanted as many chances as possible to meet readers. I think I got that. I hope I am invited back. I thought it was well worth my time. I have to give kiddos to the women who worked so hard to make it an excellent event.

Behind the Dedication

The dedications for our books mean a lot to us – and we know that readers sometimes wonder what’s behind them.  So four of our authors have chosen dedications from their books, and explained.  We hope to be coming back to you from time to time with more ‘Behind the Dedication’ blogs.

Amy Andrews – The Midwifes Miracle Baby

This was my debut novel and I dedicated to a midwife called Karen. The heroine in the book is a midwife fighting the male dominated obstetric establishment to set up a natural birth centre at the hospital she works in. The midwives at the hospital where I gave birth to both my children went through a similar battle to get their birth centre up and running and although it wasn’t ready in time for the birth of my son, it was for my daughter and my midwife Karen, who also delivered my nephew a few years later, was the most amazing woman. Giving birth is such a personal, intimate experience, to have someone who believes in you and your power to do this incredible thing and to be your advocate is a big deal, how could I not dedicate this book to her?

MidwifesMiracleBabyClaire West has sworn off dating and love due to a genetic illness in her family. She doesn’t want to become a burden to a husband in the future, nor does she want to pass her illness on to a child. Unable to have a child of her own, Claire strives to ensure other families have safe births and healthy babies in the birthing center that she runs. The on-call doctor, Campbell Deane, is smitten with Claire and refuses to take no for an answer in his pursuit of her. Eventually he wears Claire down, and Claire discovers she’s in love with him. It might take a miracle for Claire to overcome her fears and open her heart.

 

 

 

Susan Carlisle – Heart Surgeon… Hero… Husband?

My first book Heart Surgeon… Hero… Husband? did have a special dedication. It was to a beautiful friend named Raina. I once asked her where her name came from. She told me it was from a romance novel. Her mother loved to read them and named her after a heroine. Sadly, Raina was killed. When I started writing romances I knew who my first book would be dedicated to. I made sure Raina’s mother received a copy. I miss Raina everyday. She would have been proud of me.

lgcover.9781459223912.jpgDiscovering that her tiny son desperately needs a new heart terrifies Hannah Quinn—especially when she realizes ex-flame Scott McIntyre is the skilled surgeon in charge of the transplant. Entrusting her baby to Scott’s miracle-working hands is one thing, but whether Hannah’s own heart will survive Scott’s devastating charm intact is quite another…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fiona McArthur – Healed by the Midwife’s Kiss

Fiona’s chosen a dedication which is self explanatory:-

“Dedicated to Finn, author Kelly Hunter’s legend of a four-legged friend who went to doggy heaven while I was writing this book. It just seemed right to say there are heroes called Finn everywhere. Vale Finn.”

9781489259363.jpg

Finn can’t imagine loving anyone again…but could one woman change that forever?

After Dr Finn Foley’s wife abandoned him and their adorable baby daughter, he threw himself into being a father. But when he meets a kindred spirit in widowed midwife Catrina Thomas, he can’t resist getting to know her better. One sizzling kiss later, the happiness Finn has been searching for finally seems within his grasp…if only he’s willing to claim it!

 

 

 

 

Annie Claydon – Healed by the Single Dad Doc

Annie dedicated her book ‘To Kate.  Wishing you unicorns.’  Annie asked Kate to tell us what unicorns mean to her:-

Kate says – ‘Back in 2014 I found out I had cancer for the second time. I took the news particularly hard. In order for me to create the positive mindset I needed to help get me through the treatment, fear and emotional turmoil, I asked my friends to ‘send unicorns’. The outpouring of love, and unique and wonderful ways in which people rose the occasion helped buoy me through the most difficult time of my life. I have been in remission for almost 4 years now and people still send unicorns. Every single one brings me absolute joy and reminds how lucky I am. Not just to have survived cancer, again, but also to be surrounded by such magnificent people.’

Could single dad Ethan be the one…

…to put Kate together again?

When kind-hearted single father Dr Ethan Conway comes to vet Kate Foster’s rescue one night, it forges an unexpected bond between them. Could Kate be the perfect woman for Ethan and his young son to let into their life? If Kate can learn to trust again and let Ethan help her perhaps they can both move on—and be a family!

Welcome Spring-Maybe

by Susan Carlisle

 

I have a love/ hate relationship with Spring.

I love the warmth and beauty of it. Spring has had a difficult time showing up this year, make that warming up. My part of the country isn’t as bad as others. They are still having snow. Mine has turned out to be cool but the beauty is impressive. It is more stunning than it has been in years.

plants3

I planted eighty of these azaleas thirty years ago. I know the amount because my aunt owned a nursery and she gave them to my husband and me for birthdays and Christmas presents. I don’t have as many left as I should because of a drought. Can you imagine what it would look like in my yard if I did?

plants2

Spring also brings work. The yard has to be fertilized, weeds need killing, and new plants put in the flower bed. Still it nice to see life coming back to the trees and to have sun on my face.

plants4

To add to the good feelings of Spring my newest book The Brooding Surgeon’s Baby Bombshell showed up on my doorstep. It will be out in July. More about the background of it when the weather around here is hot and I’m wishing for this cool Spring weather again.

Just a note: I’m going to be in Paris for Festival du Roman Feminin May 5-6 and Berlin for the LoveLetters Convention on May 12-13. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hi. I would love to meet you.

Christmas Traditions That Never Get Old

Susan Carlisle

I’m a traditionalist by nature. Especially at Christmas time. I have a real tree, like real greenery on the mantle and around the house. I even planted a magnolia tree so that I would have cuttings for Christmas.  Christmas 5.

My tree is decorated with ornaments my children made thirty years ago, ones that were given to me as wedding shower presents over thirty five years ago, and even a few that hung on my grandmother’s family tree.Christmas 2Christmas 3

The tree skirt I made almost forty years ago from one I saw in a Neiman Marcus catalog. I still like it and use it every year.Christmas 4

I did make one nod to a new style this year by adding the red ribbon on the tree. I guess I’ll be on my death bed before I change something again.

I have also cross-stitched stockings for each to the original six of us that have a motif related to each of our personalities. I am now working on adding one for each of the in-laws. There are three of them. I’ve got two more of those to go before I start on grand kids.Christmas 6

As you can tell memories are important to me. I pull out my special photo album out each December. It has the pictures of my children through the years sitting with Santa Claus or not in some cases. Now that they are grown and have their own children these pictures are extra special.

Christmas1

Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year from Georgia.
