Can you get to Charlottesville, VA, on Saturday? If yes, please join me and a passel of fabulous romance authors for LoveFest, 10 am to 6 pm during Virginia Festival of the Book. My publisher has put An Untitled Lady on sale just for this weekend, too, so even if you can’t make it you can pick up an e-copy at a discount.

I’ll be there most of the day–looking forward to hearing from my fellow Washington Romance Writers Cathy Maxwell, Alma Katsu, Laura Kay, Madeline Iva, and Alethea Kontis. I got a preview of the Publishing Alchemy session (Madeline gave a radio interview about it), and it especially sounds great. Plus, Madeline organized the whole event, and look at the excellent poster Kate Worth made for me!
