WHAT is the Summer Lovin’ Reader Party?
In short, the Summer Lovin’ Reader Party is an annual a vacation for authors and readers! This year, it will be on June 13, 2015, but some of us are making a whole weekend of the experience, just as I did last year. If you’re going or considering attending this event, I would highly recommend you arrive on Friday afternoon…or at least in time for dinner and depart on Sunday afternoon. Last year, we went to the Karl Strauss Brewery on the Friday night before the event and had a BALL!! Delicious food and great company!
Saturday is the big event – a book signing in the afternoon and a night of partying, dancing, wine and hors d’oeuvres!!!
WHERE is the Summer Lovin’ Reader Party?
This is one of the best parts of the trip. Last year AND this year, the party is at The South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. Yup! You read that right – RESORT & SPA! Be sure to visit that link to see pictures and what they have to offer. OMG this place is not only gorgeous and situation in the beautiful Temecula Wine Country AND is surrounded by miles of quiet and peaceful wineries and countryside, you can book a massage, a facial, sit by the pool, get a mud bath, sit in the sauna or the whirlpool, get a mani and/or pedi…you name it! What a perfect getaway weekend!! AND we’ll be staying in one of their villas, so lovely bubbling whirlpool bathtub, wet bar, living room area, complimentary bottle of wine…the works. Dream vacation! *sigh*
WHO will be at the Summer Lovin’ Reader Party?
THIS is the best part of this event – READERS AND AUTHORS! I LOVED meeting some of my fans who came to my signing table, all excited that they were members of my VIP Club! It was great to put a face to the names of my devoted readers! And I had such a great time with my friends Catherine Bybee & Heather Lyons and I made so many new author friends, like Julie Prestsater (who organizes the event) & Beverly Preston, just to name a few. CLICK HERE for a complete list of all the amazing authors attending AND the schedule.
If you’re not going to this, you should! And if you can’t make it this year, plan to go next year. This is turning into THE Author/Reader event of the year. No workshops. Just meet and greet and wine and fun and partying in beautiful Temecula! It is SO worth the trip!!!
See you there!!
