A new event opened for registration today.
California Readin’ is an event taking place in Southern California (Brea) on March 25, 2017.
I have no affiliation to the event except that I just purchased tickets (only $5 dollars!) and will be an attendee.
Those of you who are in Southern California know that there haven’t been a lot of romance book events here (until the Ripped Bodice opened).

Here’s the description for their website:
California Readin’ 2017
Join us as we welcome 60 authors to California for an afternoon filled with fun and games, gift bags full of books and door prizes.
All attendees will have the chance to win a wonderful basket filled with books and other items, created by each author especially for one lucky reader. Not only will you enjoy refreshments and games at an author table, but this event includes a book signing with NYT best-sellers Robyn Carr, Tessa Dare, Debra Holland, Sarah MacLean, Jane Porter, and JoAnn Ross as well as 52 more best-selling, award-winning and debut authors. The book signing is open to the public and happens immediately after the main event from 4:30-5:30 pm.
We’ve brought in the queen of reader appreciation, Barbara Vey, to help us make this a can’t-miss event for avid readers of romance! We look forward to seeing you in March!
