The Readers Are Coming!


I’m SOOOO excited to welcome almost 200 readers to my hometown of Newport, RI for our Second Annual Reader Weekend that begins TOMORROW! We have so much fun stuff planned, including a Tiki Bar party tomorrow night and day trip to Block Island, the real-life Gansett Island, on Saturday. On Sunday morning I’ll be signing books, answering reader questions and other fun stuff before we say farewell until next year.

It takes a village to support an author and to pull this off. My village is AMAZING: Julie, the major domo, makes it all happen, with the help of Lisa, Holly, Isabel, Cheryl, Nikki, Ashley and Courtney! My husband Dan and my son Jake provide some muscle and somehow it all gets done! If you want to find out more about Reader Weekend 2016, join the Facebook group. We’ll be posting photos here, in the group and on Facebook all weekend, so keep a look out for pictures!

ALSO, on Friday night, we will be revealing the cover of Love After Dark at Reader Weekend, AND it will be posted here, too. We’ll get back to regular blogging next week!

Looking forward to a great weekend and to sharing the fun with those who couldn’t come, too!
