The coming weeks will be busy for romance writers and readers here in the great state of Texas.
On Sunday, October 22, my friends and I will head over to Dallas for the 12th Annual Buns and Roses Romance Tea for Literacy which benefits the Richardson Adult Literacy Center. I will sit at the table of the RITA Award-winning author Cheryl Etchison. I’m so excited to meet some of my favorite authors like Lorraine Heath, Lenora Bell, Sabrina Jeffries, Ilona Andrews, and Mary Jo Putney.
Not even a week later, I will see Cheryl again, along with Kerrelyn Sparks and Sherry Thomas, on Friday, October 27 at the Heart of ATX, a Romance Reading Salon event in Buda. One of my good friends Cathy Maxwell is hosting this event.
Sunday, October 29 is the monthly meeting of the Old School Romance Book Club San Antonio Chapter. Our Book of the Month is Maya Banks’s The Darkest Hour, book 1 of her KGI series.
Another event I’m super pumped to attend is the Romance Panel Discussion at the Texas Book Festival on Sunday, November 5 in Austin. The topic is very dear to my heart – Diversity in Romance. Alisha Rai, Sherry Thomas, Cat Sebastian, and Mia Sosa are confirmed to attend.
Here’s to Texas, one of the most Romantic states in the US.
