Romance Rendezvous Book Blast (August 21st, 2021)

I’m so excited to be getting ready for the Romance Rendezvous Book Blast (RRBB) in August. I have attended many years as a reader and I’m overjoyed to now be one of the attending authors! This event will be taking place in Cedar Falls, Iowa and is FREE TO ATTEND! There will be many romance authors (of a variety of sub-genres) with fun games, raffles, and swag. It’s a great way to find new authors to follow and new books to read.

As you can see, there are MANY authors you could visit and talk with — I’m only one of them! I have been spending the last couple months getting ready for this event and publishing my first contemporary romance novel, “A Second Chance”. I’m so excited that I FINALLY got my copies in and am now ready to go!

In addition to selling “A Second Chance”, I will also be selling my other two publications: “Goodnight, Little Grubb” (Children’s Picture Book) and “Fae Spreads: 2020” (Tarot Spreads Book). In addition, I plan to have lots of fun swag and even a raffle basket for those who purchase a book or sign up for my newsletter!

I hope you all will consider attending the Romance Rendezvous Book Blast. It is sure to be a lot of fun! Until then, happy reading and be sure to follow me on my other social media platforms for more updates and sneak peeks! ❤

Writers on the River (Author Event)

I’m so excited to be going to Writers on the River this weekend with friends and family! This is an amazing event that hosts over 80 romance authors — from independently published authors to well known New York Times/USA Today Bestsellers.

Not only is this a great place to get new books and meet some amazing romance authors, but this event also helps fundraise Thistle Farms. Thistle Farms helps support women of abuse by providing financial, housing, and community support. It truly is a great cause that I am happy to support while spending the day with fellow readers and writers.

If you are in the Peoria this coming weekend, be sure to check out this amazing event! Otherwise, you can see posted pictures on my Instagram Account throughout the weekend!
