I decided this spring to participate in book cons, be on panels and do readings. I’ll see which I like best and I’ll report back to you. Promise! For two of them I have pre-order book forms, so for anyone attending UtopYA (Nashville in June) or RT Booklovers con (Dallas in May) who wants to order any of my books, they can be reserved, with perks! Explained below:
If you pre-order you get a cool goodie bag. With orders of two or more books you get price breaks and a cool goodie bag! Not just bookmarks… I have a special treat no one else will have. My events are listed in chronological order. The pre-order form links are with their matching events. If you’re in NYC, Philly, Albany, Dallas or Nashville, I would love to see you! Here goes:
NYC, Monday, May 4, 7 to 9 pm, Lady Jane’s Salon
I’ll be reading at Lady Jane’s Salon from my Art of Love Boxed set romance, along with some other great readers, including Zoraida Cordova. Admission is $5, or a gently used to book to raffle.
