New 2020 Coronavirus Update for the 18th-Annual National #BookClub Conference via curtisbunn #NBCC | #bookbloggers #bookreviewers #readers

Where Readers And Authors Come Together…And Depart Friends.
2020 Bliss
With The Future Still Unknown, 2020 Literary Bliss Remains On Schedule . . . But That Could Change
Book Lover:
I pray you are healthy and are adhering to the guidelines that will keep you that way. Translation: Staying home.

I don’t have much different to report from our last update. The airlines and hotels have adopted extreme cleaning measures. And you likely have been following the news as obsessively as I, so you are in tune with the culture of the country–shoot, the world–right now.

As the founder and organizer, I have to prepare as if we will have the 18th-Annual National Book Club Conference as scheduled, July 31-August 2 at the Marriott Buckhead in Atlanta. Many of you remain excited about it, based on your emails and the fact that you are making your registration payments.

Of course, I take the position that we will have Literary Bliss because we still have more than three full months for the smart people working hard to succeed in getting the coronavirus under control.

If it takes longer and threatens our event by late June, I will pull the plug and present contingencies moving forward. Fair enough?

Remaining hopeful of a return to the world as we knew it in time for the NBCC (and to keep you excited as you pine away at home under lockdown), here is the tentative schedule of events for our weekend. I believe because we would have gone through and gotten through his crisis together, the NBCC will be even more explosive and spiritual and embraceable than ever.

SecretsLiesFamilyTies

EBOOK VERSION ONLY | Preview/Buy logo_amazon  Smashwords | Apple | B&N

I’ve been asked for years to bring this book to other formats and not let Amazon have it all to themselves.

I promised I would do so in 2013 and now as the year is finally over and I’m trying to get all my ducks in a row as I head in the 2014.

So in the following weeks or a month depending on #Smashwords distribution system this book will be available to other bookstores around the Internet.

But for now, it’s available on Smashwords as an ebook and of course it’s still available on Amazon.

It should be noted that on Amazon, if you buy the paperback version you can get the ebook version for a lower price. (It’s in their matchbook program.)

Now the biggest secret in my book selection is available everywhere and it’s a secret you can tell everyone.

You have my permission to share!

And don’t forget to leave a review wherever you pick up the book!

Thank you so much in advance!

Short description

Perfect Opportunities Lead To Wicked Affairs

Extended description

Ezekiel Chambers knew he would never find a woman that would allow him to marry and though he longed for a happy family life, since his business life was so successful, his father was never going to give one inch to grant him that opportunity.

Reluctantly, he is convinced to go to his high school reunion, but upon meeting the mysterious woman, Ezekiel forgets what he wants and focuses on what he desires.

Too bad he won’t be able to keep her.

When Grae is given the opportunity to sleep with the man of her dreams without him knowing her identity, this shy reclusive young woman steps outside of her shell and transforms herself into the woman of his dreams.
