Release day! 🍾💕 Always exciting, but this one feels extra special! Thanks to everyone who's waited patiently for Lincoln's story!! (Available at all the e-retailers) #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #author
Throw back to 1 year ago 😐I don't have words. Tree is on point, but the rest ...
Some mornings I immediately dive into all the things ... Others call for an extra cup of coffee in front of the Christmas tree ❤️🎄Finished up copyedits on Love Story (2.14.17 release) last night, now it's onto revisions for Walk of Shame (4.18.17 release) all while making progress on finishing I Knew You Were Trouble (6.13.17 release). Sounds busy and it is, but I'm so much more excited than I am stressed! (Doesn't hurt that Christmas music is playing in the background right now!) 🎶🎁
No better place to celebrate the lingering days of fall than Central Park!!! 🐺❤️🍁
Happy belated Thanksgiving, everyone! Took the day away from screens to spend time with my family! 💕🍾🍁 So excited the parents flew into NYC this year. I was going to post a pretty picture of us at the parade, but @anthonyledonne captured this candid one of us trying (and struggling) to get ready for a nice family portrait, and it's my favorite of the bunch ❤️❤️❤️
❤️🍾🎄When your new couch beats your new coffee table so you commander the piano bench solely because ... Christmas decorations. And for the record, I do love Thanksgiving! I just happen to think pumpkin pie tastes better with a holiday soundtrack 😏
She seems to have figured out that the grey stocking is hers, but not that she has a lonnnnnnng wait until Santa fills it.
The words aren't flowing on this slightly gloomy Sunday 😔Decided to do some constructive procrastination with website updates and weekly planning. And there may or may not be a Christmas tree and champagne in my near future 🍾🎄
If you're subscribed to the LL Weekly, then a) you're awesome and b) you already know what this is, but in case some of you missed it I'm soooooooo excited to announce a new addition to the LL universe ... eLLf Christmas!!! Starting Dec 5th, I'm kicking off the 12 Days of Romance. Each day will have a theme (think: holiday romance, gift guides, recipes, the guys of romance, author-talk, blogger appreciation) as well a daily giveaway (Kate Spade, @erincondren @thedaydesigner, and of course, books!) ... be sure you're signed up at eLLfchristmas.com (you can get there from my website, link in profile) 💕🍾🎄
From my day-date with @anthonyledonne yesterday. Spent the day downtown (as opposed to midtown, where we live, for you non Manhattanites!) and hit up our favorite places: Eataly, Apple Store, and of course, Kate Spade. If you're wondering why I look unnaturally happy to be shopping for mushrooms, my huge smile is more due to the fact that I knew a glass of wine was just a few steps away.
This picture completely captures the bliss I feel right now. In the past 36 hours, I've written over 20,000 words, typed THE END, celebrated with my husband, had an amazing marketing call with my agent and publisher, conceived and started a brand new book that didn't even exist in my head 2 days ago, and somehow found time to do my hair and put on mascara. As we close in on the end of the year, I've been thinking a lot about how my 2016 theme is LIKE A BOSS. Feeling like I tapped into that a little bit! Finally! Also? I've so earned this wine. 💪🏽💁🏽#authorlife #author #authorsofinstagram #nanowrimo #wine #citylife #amwriting
So, this is me, in my writing zone. I'm also on deadline (Walk of Shame is due tomorrow!!!), and ... not going to lie, panic has settled in. Anyway, as always, I'm writing on the bed instead of a proper desk. As one does. @anthonyledonne had the camera out, was all ready to capture a "real life author moment," and my little diva of a dog saw the camera and thought it was HER moment, and raced over to be the star of the pic, completely blocking my laptop from view so it looks like I'm just chilling and listening to music. Editor, if you're seeing this, I'm working, I swear! #authorlife #author #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #nanowrimo
On sale for the first time EVER! This is part of my Oxford series (think: hot guys in suits) and is one of my more SCANDALOUS stories! It's forbidden romance meets friends-to-lovers. Make a cup of tea or pour a glass of wine, curl up with your Kindle and enjoy! ❤️🍷
Life as an early riser at the end of daylight savings time looks like this: up at 4am, two cups of coffee. 2k new words and hair straightening duties finished before 6am, plus I received these GORGEOUS roses as a celebration of To Love and to Cherish hitting the USA TODAY bestseller list. Now what?! Its nearly 8, and I'm thinking a cup of cinnamon tea and sitting down with my @thedaydesigner to plan the week ahead while waiting for NYC brunch (🍊🍾) to open at noon? 🤔
Happened to glance out my window towards the Hudson and saw that New York is all dressed up in pink for Saturday night! Almost makes me wish my plans involved something other than #hulu tonight! #nyc #sunset #pink #newyork #author #authorsofinstagram #authorlife
A fitting #throwbackthursday // @anthonyledonne and me at Wrigley Field last year. Baseball is the ONLY sport I follow. And while we're Mariners fans first and foremost, we did fall pretty hard for those Cubs during our stint in Chicago! #worldseries #cubs #cubbies #⚾️
I'm 100% sure the Sorting Hat would have put Bailey in Slytherin, but the temptation of a Pomeranian in Harry Potter glasses was too much to resist last night. #pomeranian #harrypotter #authorlife
The Gryffindors let Cho Chang hang out tonight. We also have a Slytherin among us (🐺) but she wasn't as into the photo. With sissy/Hermione (@alliebilnoski) and husband/Harry (@anthonyledonne)
How cool that the Barnes and Noble in Tysons Corner, Virginia had the Belles all lined up together and facing out in their New Release section!!! #authorlife #authorsofinstagram
You guys, truly epic day today!! This Me and THE Nora Roberts. I'm holding The Reef because not only is it the first Nora book I ever read, it's the first romance novel I ever read!!! I was 14 and "borrowed" it from my mom. Never EVER thought I'd sign alongside her, but it was truly a moment!!!
