Thanks, Kris!

Dru said...

Happy Book Release Day!

Did you know that Love At First Flight is available as a free read for the nook and kindle?

Marie Force said...

Nope! I'd be the last one to hear about such a thing. LOL! Thanks for letting me know.

Amy in sunny CA said...

This sounds like such fun!! Planning a wedding (without the $$) - it will be a perfect "day"!

Thanks for doing this - can't wait to see the results!

Jocelyn said...

This is sooo FUN! I woke up with "Everyone Loves a Hero" in my Kindle!! YAY!!!

Alison said...

Happy Release Day!!

I voted...so much fun to plan a wedding!!

Hope said...

Soooo exciting...I have been waiting for this. Congrats to your elves (kind of a jab at their height, yep lol), those are 3 beautiful invitations. BUT, I think only one signifies Sam & Nick...being simply yet elegant with a little flair of color. Great Job ladies, can't wait till tomorrow :)

Stacey said...

Wow, tough choice on the invitations as they are all beautiful.

JenM said...

Hi Marie - I just confirmed that Love at First Flight is free. That was the first book of yours that I read and I was hooked. If someone else doesn't get to it first, I'll try to post it on the Kindleboard forum today. Hopefully that will get you a bunch of new fans.

As far as the invitations go, for some reason, the second one really appealed to me, but then again, I had a completely non-traditional wedding, so I'm not up on what the norms are for invites.

Marie Force said...

Hi Jen,
Yes, L@FF is free to Kindle and Nook users. Thanks so much for posting it to the board!

I haven't voted on the invites yet. I can't decide! :-)

Tanja said...

I love the green and purple. It reminds me of lilac trees in spring.

cissikat said...

Happy Release Day!

I think the second invitation is beautiful!

Aly said...

Those all look kind of familiar! :)

Cheryl Brooks said...

Happy Launch Day, Marie! Hope it's your best yet. I like invitation #3 the best.

Marie Force said...

In honor of Sam & Nick's invitations, I'm offering a $25 Amazon gift card today! Who will be the lucky winner? Find out tomorrow!

Mirmalade said...

You really make it hard to choose, Marie...not fair!!

jackie said...

Great day, free kindle book, buy Hero, and pick wedding invitations! Thanks Marie!

Cindy L said...

Marie, what a great idea! This is definitely less stressful than when I planned mine!

Julia said...

I just voted! But I thought all three are beautiful :) Congrats on your New Release Day of EVERYONE, LOVE A HERO! Can't wait to dive into it soon :)

mary said...

Love the invites all 3 but number 2 would be my pick of the 3

This is fun can't wait for the next one

Thanks for the heads up on the free book :)

limecello said...

Oh I can't wait until the results are revealed! I have a definite favorite :D

wantbaby said...

I'm doing this from my sick bed...only because I have to make sure I get my .02 in on this. I feel so attached to these 2 fictitious people!

I would give my opinion on the 3, but not sure if it's okay to do that, so I'll refrain.

Back to bed for me.

Happy Release day Marie.

For some reason Chapters in Canada has your release day as Feb 15
but has it in stock at one of the stores. Very weird.

I love #3. Are we allowed to say and why we chose?

Marie Force said...

Mary,
Absolutely! Feel free to discuss!

Mary G said...

Cool! I like all of them but Sam didn't even want to get married and make a big deal out of it, so I'm thinking she'd like the simple elegant design.

Marie Force said...

LOL, Mary! Right you are. The things she does for that man.

flchen1 said...

Ooh, how NICE! Happy release day, Marie, and I like all the options... Had to choose just one though ;) Too fun!

Tara said...

Happy release day, Marie!

I am new to the blog and late to the day one planning party, silly blizzard.

Thanks for allowing us to assist in planning a wedding with no budget, too fun!

The invites were great and I can't wait to see the rest of the planning options.

Marie Force said...

Thanks for coming by Tara! So nice to see some new faces here for wedding planning!

Nice to have you all!

Nan Greenwald said...

Congrats Julia!

tabzyreads said...

The 2nd invitation is so pretty but I think the 3rd would be classier for Nick and Sam. Lol.

Tabitha

Julia said...

THANK so much, Marie! Looking forward to it. I'm emailing you now! :)

Donna said...

I wish it had been this easy to pick out invitations for my wedding. Not to mention I like these so much more, but then again that was about 29 years ago soooo. Please go with #2. I put in my vote, but hoping to bring some people over

Marie Force said...

Thanks, Donna! The voting is open for everything until the 14th!

Judy F said...

This is fun. Sorry I am late for the party

Marie Force said...

You're not late, Judy! The wedding planning is open 24-7!

Jolene Allcock and Family said...

Sooo pretty! These put my on a budget home made ones to shame :)

Corrina said...

Thank you for making us fans part of Nic and Sam's wedding. Love it!

Gabriela Batlle said...

Love the first one! Now I want to get married!!

Marie Force said...

I am going to post this to all the prior day's blogs too, so I apologize if you get this twice....

REMEMBER--voting continues over the weekend. Tomorrow, we have ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT decisions to make. Make sure you come on out to vote!!! Sam REALLY needs you tomorrow and Sunday (hint hint)....

oklanannie said...

Choice #2 for me. I really like a traditional and very simple invitation. Am I old-fashioned? Well, probably.

This is such fun!! Can't wait for the wedding event!!!!

Angela said...

This one was difficult, but #2

SiNn said...

this is so much fun ! i voted even if its too late lol

Danielle Gorman said...

I like the third set of ivitations best. I think that they are elegant but simple.
