Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

You can find me out and about in October!

Morristown, New Jersey: Saturday, 10/1

I am thrilled to be kicking off the month with the Morristown Festival of Books. Join me Saturday, October 1st, in Morristown, NJ for a panel with two of my favorite people: Sarah MacLean and Eloisa James. If you’ve heard us speak together before, you’ll know that things can get a little bit slap-happy….

The event is free and open to the public. Our talk will be at the Church of the Redeemer (36 South Street) from 10:00-11:00. If you can’t make it to the talk, you can find us at 11:00 in the Author Signing Tent, signing books and chatting (and probably drinking coffee).

Grosse Pointe, Michigan: Saturday, 10/22

What could be better than tea and books? Grosse Pointe Library brings back their acclaimed Authors to the Pointe series on October 22 at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Estate with a classic English tea, Paula McLain, and me.

Tickets for the event are $30, available starting on 9/22 (this Thursday!) on a first come/first served basis at Grosse Pointe Library’s Central Branch.

See you in October!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

I’ll be returning to Boston this weekend to sign at NEC-RWA’s Book Fair for Literacy at the Boston Marriott in Burlington, MA.

If you’re in town, stop on by! There’s a great line-up of authors including the incomparable Loretta Chase (and if you think characters like Miles Dorrington owe more than a little to Loretta’s Rupert Carsington, you’re right).

Here are the details:

What: Book signing
When: Saturday, April 30, 1:30-2:30
Where: Boston Marriott, One Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, MA

No Vegas

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

I am very sorry to say that I won’t be signing in Vegas this weekend after all. I absolutely hate to miss it, but I didn’t want to risk sharing the joy of strep throat with everyone at the convention. So many apologies to anyone who was planning to come to the signing or the advocacy panel!

If you would like a signed bookplate instead, just email me (willig@post.harvard.edu) and I would be happy to send one. And the amazing Susanna Kearsley will be taking my place on the advocacy panel, so it will be even better than it would have been had I been there….



New York– Tonight!

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

If you’re in New York tonight, come join me, Jessica Hagedorn, and Amitava Kumar at Andaz Wall Street at 7:00 for the Pen Parentis literary salon!

There will be free food and drink and readings and discussion and general merriment.

Here’s the official event description:

Pen Parentis Literary Salons include: mingling, networking, wine-drinking, food-noshing, book signings, intense readings, interesting discussions, crazy revelations, and lots and lots of laughter. Everyone 21+ is welcome.

Every month on the second Tuesday, trios of professional authors come together in an exquisite location to share new works and join in a moderated roundtable discussion of the life/work balance–when your life includes children and your work is writing books, you need community. Come join ours!

APRIL 12TH LINEUP:

Roundtables are moderated by Pen Parentis founding director M. M. De Voe and curator Christina Chiu.
Fiction of Today and Yesterday features Jessica Hagedorn, Amitava Kumar, and New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig.

For author bios, click here.

The next salon takes place at the elegant Andaz Wall Street at 75 Wall Street, and the hotel graciously provides wine and light refreshments. The night kicks off at 7:00 pm, and admission is free.

See you tonight!



New York, Las Vegas, Massachusetts– This Month!

Friday, April 8th, 2016

I’m going to be flitting hither and yon over the next week or so, so if you’re around, come join the fun!

Here are the details:

New York, NY
Tuesday, April 12, 7:00
Andaz Wall Street
75 Wall Street

Come join the Pen Parentis Salon for what has been described in the press as, I quote, “a free and elegant event”. With free AND elegant, how can you go wrong? Amitava Kumar, Jessica Hagedorn, and I will be reading selections from our latest works and chatting about balancing writing and parenthood. (And when I say “balancing”, I mean tottering on the edge of a precipice with your laptop in one hand and a plate of dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets in the other.)

Las Vegas, NV
Saturday, April 16, 10:30-12:30
Pavilion Ballroom
Rio All-Suite Hotel
3700 W Flamingo Rd

Hundreds of romance writers are descending on Las Vegas for the RT Book Reviews Convention, which culminates in a giant book signing. Come find me in the W section between 10:30 and 12:30! (The signing goes until 2:00, but I’ll be fleeing early to catch a plane home to the East Coast, so if you want to find me, come before 12:30.) There is an admission fee and a limit on how many books you can bring from home, so check out the Book Fair rules on the RT site. If you’d like to have your books signed but can’t make it to the Book Fair (or want to bring more from home than they allow), send me a message, and I’ll try to find a time to sign books in the hotel lobby.

Burlington, MA
Saturday, April 30, 1:30-2:30
Boston Marriott
One Burlington Mall Road

It’s the New England Chapter of RWA’s annual conference, culminating in a Book Fair on Saturday afternoon. This event is free and open to the public– and, even better, ten percent of the proceeds go to the Massachusetts Literacy Foundation! Other authors signing include Loretta Chase, Megan Frampton, and Joanna Shupe. You can find the full list here.

For more Poppy fun, you can join a bunch of the gang at Anderson’s in Chicago next Wednesday (3/9) and Joseph Beth in Cincinnati next Thursday (3/10). We’ve also left signed books behind us with RJ Julia and WORD, so if you’d like a signed copy, just get in touch with one of those stores!

And now back to writing the next book….



Jersey City– Tonight!

Watch out, New Jersey! A Fall of Poppies is heading your way.

Poppies RJ Julia

You can find Jessica Brockmole, Hazel Gaynor, Marci Jefferson, Jennifer Robson, Heather Webb, and me tonight at WORD Bookstore in Jersey City (7:30pm, 123 Newark Avenue).

As always, if you can’t make it to the event, but would like a personalized book or books, just contact the lovely folks at WORD at 201-763-6611 prior to 7:30 tonight and they’ll get those signed and sent off to you.

This is the last lap of the East Coast part of the tour, but you’ll be able to see assorted Poppies (sans moi) next week in Chicago and Cincinnati.
