August Blog Blast to Celebrate November Luncheon!

This month on our blog, you will have a chance to meet some of the 30 plus authors coming to our luncheon on November 5, 2016 (Saturday). And there will be GIVEAWAYS here nearly every day! 

So be sure to return and comment.

Do you love reading romance? Then you need to register for this luncheon. Click here.

For those who don't know, each paid luncheon attendee receives a bag filled with books and author swag of all kinds, time to talk with any of the authors, a delicious lunch, and an opportunity to win a door prize. The door prizes are provided by the authors and the "baskets" are filled with their books and goodies. Plus we will have many other book/goody-filled baskets provided by Southern Magic Romance Writers and their friends that you can possibly take home with a purchase of giveaway tickets. (SMRW is a non-profit organization and funds are used to further educate authors and provide fantastic programs like this.)

During the luncheon, there will be additional books available to purchase for the book signing to follow at the same location.

Oh, by the way, after your lunch, the wonderful Southern Magic member, Hildie McQueen, will be our Welcome Speaker. Click here to check her out. She writes western and paranormal along with historical romance.

Then New York bestselling author Jennifer Ashley is our Keynote Speaker. If her name doesn't sound familiar maybe one of her other names will, such as Ashley Gardner or Allyson James. Under all of those names she writes contemporary, historical and paranormal romance along with mysteries, and urban fantasies. Click here to check out her website.

Be sure to click here and purchase your ticket. When you get to the page, be sure to click on the word Registration in the white box at the top. At the end of this month prices go up. So don't waste time. Go and purchase and plan to have fun with us.

If you've been before and on the fence about coming to the event because you don't like driving downtown Birmingham, be aware that the location of the luncheon has moved to the Hoover area.  This year it will be held at the Embassy Suites on John Hawkins Parkway near the Galleria. If you're from out of town,  you can even stay there. Click here to get a special rate for the overnight stay.
