Let’s celebrate!

Will you be in or near beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, this Saturday, from 6 to 8 PM? If so, please come join me — and other local romance others — in celebrating the very first annual Bookstore Romance Day at the beloved indie the Well-Read Moose!

It’s a double celebration, really, because the Well-Read Moose is launching its brand-new romance section. (How cool is that?!?) We’ll be talking and signing books, and there will be fun romance-themed drinks and treats available. Plus, if you purchase a romance novel, you’ll get to take a spin on the MOOSE MADNESS PRIZE WHEEL!

For more info, click here. Hope to see you there!

Not to brag, but I’m Olympic level. :)

Bookish punning!

Or . . . punningly bookish. I’m not going to admit just how much time I spent poring over this fabulous image (and chuckling to myself), but . . . Isn’t it delightful??

Although I’m just a tiny bit concerned about that cat in the upper left-hand corner . . .
