Author event and giveaway: Kim Boykin

October 14, 2014

Kim Boykin

Kim Boykin was in town for the launch of her new book, Palmetto Moon, and I was lucky enough to attend the event.   Kim is a South Carolina native who currently lives in North Carolina.  Her first book, The Wisdom of Hair, was the third best selling book at Fiction Addiction last year. In between her two books, Kim’s been writing romance novellas for Jane Porter’s venture, Tule Publishing.  Kim said it’s given her a lot of opportunities and helped her build her audience.

Palmetto Moon took Kim three months to write – it’s about a runaway bride from a high society family.  It’s told from four points of view and is set in Round O, South Carolina.  (For the record, there really is a Round O.)  The executive chef of S. N. O. B. in Charleston created some recipes for the story and they’re included in the back of the book!

Kim is currently working on her next book – A Peach of a Pair – about a girl from Alabama graduating with a degree in music.  A hurricane and tornado hit her town while she’s at school.  The book is due on January 5 and should be out next summer.

Thanks to the generosity of the author, I have an autographed copy of Palmetto Moon for one lucky reader.  To enter to win an autographed copy of PALMETTO MOON, simply fill out the entry form.  Contest is open worldwide – one entry per person, please.  I will use to determine the winner.  Contest ends at midnight EDT Wednesday, October 22, 2014.    Comments are welcome (and appreciated) but will not get you an entry in the contest.

    The author wrote this book in three months? That’s amazing. Now she is working on book #2. Congratulations to her as a kind of new author. Thanks for entering me in the contest.

    I’ve been to S.N.O.B. twice–once each time I’ve been in Charleston in the last few years. It’s wonderful. We go without children, even adult children, now, because it’s so expensive, but worth it.

    I keep eyeing those events at your fabulous local store and one of these I WILL get there!
