What makes a Rip-Roaring Read?

On Monday, June 4th at 12pm EST, I have the pleasure and honor of joining a dynamic group of bestselling and award-winning authors in a discussion of what makes a rip-roaring read! I’ll be discussing my romantic comedy novels Wedlocked (which just won the 2012 Indie Excellence Award for Chick Lit and is an award-winning finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards!) and my recently released novel Neurotically Yours. Author A.R. Silverberry will host the Shindig event, and we’ll be joined by such other distinguished authors as Melissa Foster, Karen Bergreen, and Kathie Shoop.

The online, live-video event is free. Shindig’s platform allows attendees to interact with the authors, whose work spans suspense, fantasy, historical fiction, chick lit, and humor. We encourage those who love books to ask us questions and explore what tickles, scares, inspires, and moves us. Please RSVP at http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3600710823.

Now a little more about my fellow featured authors!
