Portland Romance Reader Luncheon

I had a fantastic time in Portland, OR on Saturday attending the Portland Rose Chapter’s fantastic 10th anniversary Romance Reader Luncheon where I gave this year’s keynote speech.  Two hundred readers and writers attended the lunch in the beautiful, historic Governor’s Hotel ballroom and I took gift bags for all with my JP reader goodies and a signed copy of Flirting with Forty.

Lots of Seattle and Portland writer friends were there on Saturday, as well as two fellow Harlequin Presents authors, Lucy Monroe, and new author, Maisey Yates, who will have her first book out in the US this November.  Lucy looked gorgeous in pink and has a brand new book out, and Maisey shared a little with me about her very busy publishing schedule. 

As soon as I have more photos I promise to get them added.  In the meantime, I’ve giving away a gift bag of romance novels, books marks, and other goodies for one die-hard romance reader.  If you’d like to win this bag of books and fun stuff, tell me what kind of romance you like to read and why, or tell me who your favorite romance writer is and you’re entered.  Romance Reader Luncheon blog contest will run through Wednesday night and I’ll announce the winner Thursday morning.  Good luck!
