So today in Toronto, Cheryl Rainfield celebrated her newest release STAINED and I was luckt enough to attend the event. I was a little early (ok, about an hour early), but I wasn't the only one! Cheryl was already there and she was kind enough to come over and talk with me for a bit. We spoke of books and my love of photography, and never once did she make me feel like a goob for gushing about pictures instead of books! I usually get really nervous when I am in the presence of authors, but Cheryl was so down-to-Earth and approachable that I felt like I was talking to a friend. Cheryl puts a lot of herself--her personal experiences with abuse and her strength--into her books making them both emotional and captivating reads. Her stories are gritty and honest, I hope one day you all get the chance to experience her writing.
I picked up a few extra goodies from the swag pile so I could share them with you! There will be two winners, each will receive 1 (one) signed bookmark and 1 (one) wrist band that says: Sometimes You Have to Be Your Own Hero and Love Yourself. Truer words have never been spoken. Giveaway is open to Canadian and US addresses only. Entrants must be 13 years or older to enter.
