Calling All Peeps in the Surrounding Area

We are fortunate to have Heather Graham back this year for another convention and book signing in New Orleans, Louisiana!!!
It will be held again at the wonderful Hotel Monteleone!

And finally after the first Blogger Meet and Greet we did back a couple of months ago...
Patti from Book Addict and I are going to meet up again (with Hannah!)
and try to get others to join in the fun!

I stole this from Patti ~ Book Addict's place:

Author Heather Graham hosts a yearly author workshop here in New Orleans over Labor Day Weekend - Writers for New Orleans. This year, a few bloggers have decided to meet using this event as an excuse (like we need an excuse, right?). I don't know where most of you Book Bloggers hail from, but if you're anywhere near New Orleans, why don't you think about coming in over Labor Day weekend? The loose plan is to meet for dinner and drinks Saturday night (location to be determined) and maybe have coffee or brunch before the 11:30 book signing at the Hotel Monteleone.

The schedule of events can be found here. Some of the authors attending thus far are:
Helen A. Rosburg
Heather Graham aka Shannon Drake
L. A. Banks
Corrine De Winter
Silver James
J. A. Konrath
Lisa Mannetti
Michael Meeske
Linda Conrad
Mary Sella
F. Paul Wilson
Kate Poole
Harley Jane Kozak
Kathleen Pickering
Tina Wainscott aka Jaime Rush
Kathy DePalo

You can bring your own books and they'll have books for purchase as well. Hey - it's a 3-day weekend, think about coming, it's going to be fun! If you can't come Saturday night for dinner (and drinks!), just come for the signing on Sunday or vice versa...

So, if you are around us and would like to meet up,
drop me a line @

Remember... Keep it Dirty, Smutty & Hussy!
