Romance Authors Night at VHOB - It Was So Much Fun!

Last night was a blast (I'm obviously a product of the '60's).  We all had so much fun with Joan Swan, Marina Adair, and Virna DePaul.  And get this - Joan came from the San Luis Obispo area, and Virna came from the Sacramento area (Marina only lives in Scotts Valley, but we all know Hwy 17 can be a bear during commute hours!).  How cool is that?

We started pretty close to 7:00.  We had a panel discussion with our 3 authors, and everybody in the audience piped up with questions along the way.  Our 3 authors even spent some time asking questions of each other.  After about 45 minutes, we ended the Q&A, and our 3 authors spent the next 45-60 minutes signing books and chatting with our audience.  And speaking of our audience, we had a number of distinguished local authors there - Hannah Jayne, Diana Orgain, Cassie Alexander, and Sonja Rouillard, who is coming out with her 1st book in a couple of months.

And let's not forget Romantiques.  Right after we ended the discussion with our 3 authors, Susan, the owner of Romantiques, and Debbie were there to sell the garments and products that they had brought earlier in the day.  We did have one mishap last night. Joni wrenched her knee when she tripped over a box that held "toys" from Romantiques. Let me just say that these products were not G-rated...or PG-rated...or...  But since it was an adult audience, it was all good.

So there you have it.  We couldn't have had a better threesome for our event.  Here are some pictures from last night:

Chatting After The Event


  1. I had the feeling this would be a fun event!

  2. I'm so glad the event went well! It looks like a ton of fun. I wish I'd been able to make it!

  3. For sure!

    BTW, I just finished book 2 of the Clifton Chronicles. And Jeffrey Archer did it again! He left me with a terrible cliffhanger! Can't wait to read the next one.
