by hosting one of the most fan-friendly events of the year! I’ve known Barbara online for years and have been hearing about her Reader Appreciation Weekend for almost as long. This spring, I am thrilled to be on the lineup for the annual event, which this spring takes place April 17–19, in Brookfield, WI.

The weekend kicks off with Author/Reader Bingo on Friday, and moves on through more games and communal meals, talks and signings, and a grand keynote speech by bestselling author Marina Adair!

I’ll post more as I learn more, but I wanted you to know that tickets go on sale July 26 at 11:59 p.m. CST – that is, a minute to July 27 (my birthday)! BE FOREWARNED – THE WEEKEND SELLS OUT QUICKLY! If you’re curious, check out Barbara’s website at and make your plans now!
