Bookstore Romance Day: A Panel with Karen Booth, Samantha Chase, Kianna Alexander, and Reese Ryan

Saturday 8/17, 5 pm

Join us in celebrating our first annual Bookstore Romance Day with a lovely panel of romance authors! Karen Booth, Samantha Chase, Kianna Alexander, and Reese Ryan will be discussing writing and publishing romance novels, themes in their work, and advice for aspiring romance novelists!

Stay after the panel for an opportunity to get books signed and to socialize with the authors and other romance devotees! Champagne, fruit, and chocolate will be provided.


Like any good Southern belle, Kianna Alexander wears many hats: loving wife, doting mama, advice-dispensing sister, and gabbing girlfriend. She's a voracious reader, an amateur seamstress and occasional painter in oils. Chocolate, American history, sweet tea and Idris Elba are a few of her favorite things. A native of the TarHeel state, Kianna still lives here with her husband, two kids, and a collection of well-loved vintage 80's Barbie dolls.

 

 


Karen Booth is a Midwestern girl transplanted in the South, raised on '80s music and repeated readings of Forever by Judy Blume. A married mom of two college-age kids, she is the author of more than 25 steamy contemporary romances, and has been a finalist for RT Magazine's Series Romance of the Year, RT Magazine's Gold Seal of Excellence, The Booksellers Best Award, and the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award. Her books have been translated into seventeen languages.

 

 


Reese Ryan writes red hot romance with captivating family drama, surprising secrets, and a posse of deliciously-flawed characters. Past president of the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers, a panelist at the 2017 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and recipient of the 2018 Donna Hill Breakout Author Award, Reese is an advocate for the romance genre and diversity in fiction. A Midwesterner with deep Southern roots, Reese currently resides in semi-small-town North Carolina where she's an avid reader, a music junkie, and a self-declared connoisseur of cheesy grits.


Samantha Chase is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller of contemporary romance that's hotter than sweet and sweeter than hot. She released her debut novel in 2011 and currently has more than sixty titles under her belt! When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook, wearing a tiara while playing with her sassy pug Maylene...oh, and spending time with her husband of 28 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
