Free Friday Recommendations: Celebs in Vegas!

I just returned from a five-day trip to Las Vegas where my husband attended a gaming convention.  Once again I had the opportunity to attend the Keynote Speaker event, one of my highlights of each trip.  Last year, Penn Gillette from the duo Penn & Teller spoke and provided insight into some of the illusions they perform on stage.

Horrible lighting – me and Katty!

This year, on the eve of the political debate, BBC Journalist Katty Kay wowed us with her dynamic energy covering highlights of her career, past and present.  I was lucky enough to have her sign my book, take a photo and leave me with so much food for thought it’s hard to know where to begin.  You can order Womanomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success  here.  (By the way, it’s not just for women.)  Womenomics

Us and Penn after the show!

We also saw the Penn & Teller show at the Rio, and met up with Penn afterwards.  Wow… he’s tall.  He has an arsenal of literary offerings through Amazon, also.  Check them out when you search for him online.

And, for those of you who are Nook owners, today’s Free Friday Download:

Michael Baron’s The Journey Home was one of our most popular Free Fridays titles yet. So I’m extra excited to announce today’s selection is his equally-impressive novel, Spinning.

Those who enjoyed the complexity and deeply-felt storytelling in The Journey Home will find the same elements in Spinning. This time, Baron introduces Dylan Hunter—a man in the prime of his life who has everything he’s ever wanted. With a successful career, a string of adoring women and a great group of friends, Dylan is living the high life. Thanks to his golden tongue, he’s able to get himself (and his high-paying clients) out of any tight space, with a little ‘spin.’

Then a former girlfriend comes back into his life, with a  3 year-old daughter in-tow. The girl’s not Dylan’s, but he soon finds his priorities realigned when he becomes her sole guardian. Readers will sympathize with Dylan’s desire to hold on to all of the things his old life afforded, but they’ll keep turning the pages to see if he’ll find peace in this new role he never thought he’d be playing.
