Holiday Romance at Lady Jane's

It was another wonderful night for romance at Lady Jane's Salon last night. As usual I was happy to get out share some romance book talk with friends over drinks and Madam X is the perfect place to do that.

The holiday celebration was combined with a celebration of Harlequin's 60th anniversary so Lady Jane was happy to welcome lots of folks from both Harlequin's New York and Toronto office. Here they are here accepting a champagne toast on their anniversary. Cheers!


We were fortunate to have a reading from the wonderful Stacy Agdern. Stacy is a Romance fiction reviewer, bookseller, and an author. She read from her lovely Hanukkah novella.




Then the fabulous Hope Tarr read from her newest release Twelve Nights. A December Harlequin Blaze release which is the sequel to her wonderful book Bound to Please.




All in all it was a wonderful night. I'm so grateful to the founders of Lady Jane's: Hope, Maya, Leanna and Ron for always putting together such a wonderful and worthwhile evening.

Check out Lady Jane's site here. And if you're in NY come on by.


Best,
Kwana

That would be wonderful Kristen.

That sounds like a nice evening. And I bet very inspiring too.
Are you writing or wrapping now???

Kwana said...

Debra, right now neither. I'm catching my breath and coming up with a plan.

Thanks for the wonderful summary, Kwana, with pics no less. I'm still glowing from what was just a magical night for all of us--Stacey's debut read of "Rededication," all the wonderful friends and readers who turned out to buy "Twelve Nights" and hear me read, and last but certainly not least, the thrill of having my editor Brenda Chin there to recap the highlights of Harlequin's 60th nniversary Year as well as so many editors from Harlequin's New York office. I don't think my feet have touched earth quite yet.

I had a wonderful time! Hearing two authors read (Hope - I just started Twelve Nights and loving it!) and also getting to meet Brenda Chin - my feet haven't touched the ground yet, either! This was very cool for me, especially as I'm just starting out in the romance book "biz" :) Can't wait for next month!

Great Pics. I was so upset that I didn't get to go. I was looking forward to it. And Lady Jane's was another fun night--as always.
