Glendale Chocolate Affaire
February 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm| Free
Glendale will soon host the sweetest event in town. The 21st Annual Glendale Chocolate Affaire will be a chocoholic’s dream, with chocolate and so much more in Historic Downtown Glendale for three days, Feb. 5-7.
A TOUCH OF ROMANCE
One of the festival traditions, in celebration of romance and the upcoming Valentine’s holiday, is a symposium of romance novelists that will be held during the event. Fans and other interested readers can stop by to meet-and-greet the authors, attend book signings, and budding novelists can enjoy free writing workshops where the authors will help them learn more about the craft. This event marks the southwest’s largest gathering of romance novelists.
I’ll be on a Teen Romance 101 panel and signing If I Fix You on Saturday, February 4th. The panel starts at 10 AM and I’ll be available to sign books until 2 PM.
TWILIGHT. ELEANOR AND PARK. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Young adult romance has come a long way since SWEET VALLEY HIGH. Today’s teens crave swoony heroes, complicated heroines, strong plot lines, and a fresh story, along with their happily ever after. Come learn from local YA authors Ginger Scott (THE HARD COUNT), Abigail Johnson (IF I FIX YOU), and Sara Fujimura (TANABATA WISH) how to create stories for teens (and the young at heart) to give them “all the feels.”
