TODAY! If you’re in #yyc I want you at Eau Claire noon to 4 pm for Calgary’s first romance novel fest! #sultrysummeryyc

Today, kitten, you’re going to find true love.

Probably between the pages of a book, but maybe with a real life cowboy, firefighter or Viscountess. Stranger things have happened. If you’ve in the Calgary area (if you’re in Edmonton or Montana, if you start driving NOW, you’ll get here for the party), get yourself over here:

because we are going to get your summer off to the most SIZZLING start imaginable. Just look at what we’ve got planned for you:

author sightings and signings ENTERTAINMENT prizes GAMES books FAB PERFORMERS
including NAKED GIRLS READING (but they’ll be clothed)
the sensational spoken word poet MEL VEE
DANIELLE FRENCH performing from Miss Scarlett and the Madmen (REALLY!!)
“she’s a night on the town you’ll never forget” MANHATTAN WILDE
did we mention BOOKS also SURPRISES
