We’re just ten days from the First Annual Mid-Summer Afternoon’s Booksigning at Pindar Vineyards, hosted by Dunes & Dreams RWA. This is a terrific event, bringing romance authors and readers together, with our authors generously donating a portion from their sales to Literacy Suffolk. Among the signers scheduled to appear we have:

NY Times bestselling authors Bertrice Small and Barbara Metzger

2009 RITA Finalist Jean Marie Pierson

Romantic Suspense author, Patti Ann Bengen

Author of women’s fiction with romantic elements Candace Gold and her alter ego Candy Caine

The sassy Debora Dennis who writes erotic novellas


Sarah Wendell, aka Smart Bitch Sarah, co-owner of the romance blog Smart Bitches/Trashy Books and co-author of “Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels.”

Of course, with a fabulous locale like Pindar, there’ll also be wine tasting and tours, strawberries, music, and fun for everyone. So take a trip to Peconic on Sunday, June 21. Stop by the vineyard between 2 and 4 pm. Meet our authors, talk about the genre, or just say hi as you make a beeline for the bottles of Winter White. Purchase a book or two. You’ll be rewarding yourself with a great new read and helping another Long Island resident learn to read. A double-dose of feel-good. (Add the wine and it’s a triple whammy!)

We’ll be there. I hope you’ll be there, too.
