VIP Cocktail Party
Sponsored by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Friday – 5pm-6:30pm

You definitely don't want to miss the chance to mingle with your favorite authors over a glass or two of liquid courage! Our VIP Cocktail Party is where authors and attendees hang out together with a plate of hors d'oeuvres and desserts alongside a few dozen up-and-coming authors and vendors we think deserve a spotlight.

Author Showcase
Sponsored by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Friday – 6:30pm-9pm

ALL registered ticket holders are invited to stop by the Author Showcase where new-to-you authors will be introducing themselves to the romance community. Our handpicked vendors will also have their tables set up and ready for you to shop. The cash bars will be open with specialty drinks made just for you!
