Are you looking for something to do this Saturday? Head over to the Morris-Jumel Mansion for the second annual New York Romance Festival!
The event runs from 1:00 to 4:00, with a jam-packed day of talks, panels, and signings. I’ll be speaking around 1:00, and the insightful Maya Rodale (author of Dangerous Books For Girls: The Bad Reputation of Romance Novels, Explained) will be taking the podium later in the day. In between, you’ll find panels on various sub-genres of romance: historical, contemporary, paranormal, and erotic.
The romance festival is free and open to the public.
I won’t have books for sale, but I’m happy to sign as many as you’d like to bring from home! It seemed like too much bother to sell books, but I will have a few books that I’ll be giving away on a first come, first served basis to people who stop by Maya’s and my table.
I’ll also have bookplates with me, to sign for your copies of The Other Daughter (coming out July 21) and The Lure of the Moonflower (August 4). So if you’d like a bookplate (or four or five), just ask!
See you on Saturday!
