Penny Watson's HOLIDAY BASH AND BOOKFAIR!

 
PENNY WATSON'S HOLIDAY BASH AND BOOKFAIR


I'm still putting out feelers, but I'm about 98% sure this is happening.

ROMANCE LOVERS UNITE! Enjoy the holiday season and get some shopping done, too!

I thought it would be a lot of fun to have a holiday party and include readers, authors, bloggers, reviewers, friends, and anyone looking for some cute stocking stuffers for the holidays.

WHEN: Saturday December 6, 12-4 pm

WHERE: Residence Inn, Needham, MA

WHO: Authors, Bloggers, Readers, Friends! EVERYONE!

WHY: Party time! Promotional opportunity for authors, to meet and greet readers, sell books, and hand out promo items. Chance for bloggers/reviewers to connect with authors and chat with readers. A great shopping option for everyone...books, promo stuff, give-away baskets, and other home-made items.

Also, sip a holiday cocktail, munch on a Christmas cookie, schmooze with friends, and sing along with Celine Dion Christmas music. (Don't ding Celine!)



What else...EXTRAS: Give-away baskets on the hour!

Authors: This is bring-your-own books (cash sale) and promo items (and any other cool crafts you have that would be appropriate for a holiday fair). If you have the best recipe for gingerbread men, bring them along, too!

If you're interested, please let me know. I'm deciding on how big a space to rent.

LET'S DO THIS THING!

BTW, there's a similar event in Sherborn on the same day/time at The Writers' Loft--here's a link:

Looks to be about a mile off 128 so it should be an easy drive for me. :)
