Spring Events

I have a very busy schedule in the coming months.  Lots of public events, and then private events like book clubs and reader groups and dinners I’ve offered to local charities.  Although I don’t love leaving my kids so much in the evenings and on weekends–as you know I’m a tad attached to them–it’s all worth it if I get to meet readers and see fellow authors and friends.

My next public event takes place this coming Saturday afternoon at the Kingsgate Library on 143rd Street in Kirkland, WA.   My talk begins at 2 pm and I’ll be reading from Easy on the Eyes and then leading a discussion on the writing life and the publishing industry as well as answering questions.  Third Place Books will be selling my books in case you want to pick one up for a sister, friend or mom for Mother’s Day.  I will also have fun goodie bags for all who make it so stop by the library if you can.

Next Thursday I head to Pasadena for a book club event and then the following week I’m in Portland, OR for the PLA Conference and then I’m back in Portland again on April 17th as the keynote speaker for the wonderful Rose City Romance Reader Luncheon–if you’re in the Portland, OR area this is such a great event!  Dozens of incredible authors will be in attendance and they always give away stacks and stacks of books.  If you love romance–and I do–then try to squeeze this event in.

Two other fun events that have been added is the Grand Opening for Ty’s new shop in Waikiki.  I’m going to be there that night on April 8th signing books and hanging out with any and all my Hawaii readers and friends.  If you’re on Oahu, please plan to stop by the party and have a beer or glass of wine and chat.  But if you’re not on Oahu and just happen to be in Montana, then I’ve got an event for you!  Just today  the wonderful Kari Andersen put together a book event at the Barnes & Noble in Bozeman for me.  It’s scheduled for 7 pm on May 1st and I’d love to see you  if you’re in the Big Sky region.

And  I’ve one more special mention….

I’m hosting a private, exclusive screening and party for my good friend Christine Fugate’s incredible, moving, inspriing film, Grief Becomes Me:  A Love Story in Redmond, WA on Sunday, April 25th at 2 pm.  I’ll be mailing out invites for this event and due to the limited seating in this swanky gorgeous movie theatre I have to cap the headcount at 130.  If you think you’d like to attend, and meet the real life film director who inspired the character of Christie, Tiana’s film maker friend in Easy On The Eyes, save the date and email me ASAP for an invite.  Christine’s flying up from Laguna Beach just to meet my readers, fellow writers and  friends.  I’ve told her I know the most amazing women in the Pacific Northwest and I know you’d enjoy hearing about her experiences as a film director.  Christine is an Emmy award winning director and has such a fascinating perspective on women and creativity and women in the film industry.  Please do think about joining us if you can make it.  I’ll have copies of my books available, lots of fun drinks and appetizers and terrific conversation.  It’ll be a fantastic afternoon, I promise!
