2 Big Pieces of News for Upcoming Events

Greetings.  First of all, I told you I would let you know about the local lingerie store, Romantiques, and our Romance Authors Night, scheduled for this coming Friday at 7:00. Well, it turns out that Romantiques is going to have a trunk show immediately following the 3 authors' panel discussion and question-answering.  While the authors sign books, Romantiques will sell a wide variety of their garments to our audience.  Think of this as getting a jump on Valentine's Day shopping.  Romantiques will be selling their products from 8:00 until around 9:00.  How excited are we all?  I know I am!

As if that's not enough good news, we've got our April selection (Tuesday, April 15) for the VHOB Book Club.  It's Tracy Guzeman's The Gravity of Birds.  This book was my 10 most favoritest(?) book of 2013.  It's Tracy's debut novel, and it is excellent.  So, let me remind you how this works.  The VHOB Book Club will meet at Village House of Books from 6:30-7:15.  And then, at 7:15, Tracy will come to answer questions and sign books. Tracy appeared at VHOB with Meg Waite Clayton way back in November and does an excellent job of engaging an audience. And don't forget - the author's appearance is open to everybody, not just the book club members.

I'm exhausted from all of this good news.  I have to stop here.

SECOND REMINDER:  Make a comment on my Books of 2013 post and enter a drawing for your pick of the list(er).  I will keep the contest open until next Wednesday, Jan. 8.


  1. What fun to combine Romantic Authors Night with a lingerie trunk show!

  2. I know, huh? P.S. It was Joni's idea. I don't have ideas that clever.

  3. What a great idea, romance and lingerie! Joni is so clever! But you are, too!

  4. Thanks, Jennifer. But let's be honest. In my house, only Joni would have come up with that idea! And I'm mighty glad she did. It makes me look good - for marrying her.
