Buns and Roses Romance Tea for Literacy!

Hello, my lovelies!

This October 21, I’ll be hosting a table at the Buns and Roses Romance Tea for Literacy in Richardson, Texas. Tickets for this awesome event go on sale, tomorrow, June 1, 2018. Thirty different authors will be attending and hosting tables and if you want to see a list – head on over to the Buns and Roses site for info. There’s also a VIP reception the evening before that’s ticketed and you can add that to your registration if you so choose.

I’m already putting together the gift bags for my tablemates – this is so fun for me and I hope it will be for you too.

All ticket purchases include: meet and greet with the authors, free self-parking in the hotel parking lot, complimentary book, gift from your host author, autograph keepsake and private book signing. All seating is reserved. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets are non-refundable but may be transferred to another person.

The proceeds from this event go the the Richardson Adult Literacy Center so your fun day actually helps other people do what we all love so much – read!
