After swearing that this year would be my last hosting a luncheon, I’ve been persuaded to do another. A lot had to do with cards, letters and emails I received from readers and authors letting me know how much they’ve enjoyed the event and look forward to more. It also helped that I attended the RT Convention in New Orleans last week.
I spent most of my time talking with people who convince me that there is a need for this type of reader event and I agree. So, when the incredible Tess Gerritsen agreed to be the keynote speaker, I just had to do it. Along with many past favorite authors, many NY Times and USA Today authors jumped on board to make the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon a “must do” event in 2015.
I’m still working out all the details and will be posting them soon, but if you want to sign up for my newsletter at barbaravey.com, you will be notified first.
Here’s a teaser of the authors attending. Lisa Kleypas, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Susan Mallery, Roxanne St. Claire, Julia Quinn, Kelley Armstrong, Cherry Adair, Candace Havens, Monica Burns, and Diana Peterfreund. There will be a total of 60 authors.
Bottom Line: Looking at a July 1st sign up date…keep your fingers crossed.
