On Friday, September 18th, I had the great fortune of being invited to SOURCEBOOKS for a little tour and a lot of fun by the very awesome marketing phenom, Morgan Doremus. SOURCEBOOKS is one of my favorite publishers with such great authors like Sara Humphreys, Paige Tyler, Grace Burrowes, Julie Ann Walker and Shana Galen, just to name a few. Being able to head down to NYC and visit the home of these authors and the people behind the scenes is really a wonderful experience.
Morgan was so gracious to have me there and introduce me to the wonderful people she works with, including editor Mary Altman who shares my love for historical and Western romance, the lovely Cat Clyne who I have known for a while, Lathea Williams who is a publicity manager and Elissa Erwin an Editorial Assistant.
I learned that SOURCEBOOKS is not JUST about romance having little peek into their YA and children's lines as well as keeping a keen eye on those coveted romance shelves around the offices. I honestly was in reader/blogger heaven being able to hang out with these great women and find out a bit about what they do on a daily basis, which is quite a lot. Seeing covers to upcoming books which were just designed and hearing them plan for upcoming conferences aside from their day to day work, is only the tip of the iceberg for these busy ladies.

I truly want to thank SOURCEBOOKS and Morgan Doremus for being so generous with me and with the Book Obsessed Chicks for the annual Beach BBQ. The book donations that were sent for the goody bags were so appreciated by all who attended. SOURCEBOOKS has often been a big draw for me at events like BEA in NYC because of how well the publisher is represented and how much they care about the readers. I thank the whole office for the wonderful visit and how welcome I felt as soon as I walked though the front door.
