Book signing day: Drop by and say hello

If you’re in the south-central Pennsylvania area, you can meet two handfuls of romance authors during A Day of Romance on Saturday, April 25, at The York Emporium.

The authors cover the spectrum from contemporary romance to historical in paranormal, Western, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, LGBT, erotic, women’s fiction and more. I’ll be there with paperbacks from the Neighborly Affection series (and you can bring your own to get signed, naturally), but you can also meet Karen Rose Smith, Cate Masters, Sara Walter Ellwood, Heidi Hormel, Heather Heyford, Andrew Grey, Misty Simon, Susan Gourley/Kelley, and Anson Barber.

The full day of events runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but be sure to get there by 11 a.m. for an author Q&A session, autographing, writing advice, and a game of book cover bingo for prizes.

While you’re there, look for the box in the photo below to enter the raffle for a big crate of books and other goodies.

Raffle time!

Enter for the chance to win a slew of books and goodies to help you spend a relaxing afternoon reading.

The York Emporium is at 343 W. Market St. in York, Pennsylvania. Parking is free, and the area is filled with small local shops. The Central Market House farmers market — a perfect place to grab lunch — is just a few blocks away.

You can even bring along the non-romance fans in the household; the Emporium has thousands of books for those who love military history, science fiction, mystery, and other fiction and nonfiction as well as curiosities, Civil War memorabilia and more. Just exploring all of the shelves can be an all-day adventure.

I hope to see you Saturday, April 25, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.!
