Hi BDH, Mod R again!
A while ago, Ilona wrote a Just Life blog post about making fajitas because Grace Draven was coming to dinner. Many were the fans who wished they could be a fly on the wall at that get-together and spy on everything that was being discussed hehe.
Say no more!
Ashland Library in MA is hosting an event inspired by that fan desire a week from today: Tuesday, July 26th, at 7 pm ET – a summery tête-à-tête with Grace Draven and House Andrews
In case you are not familiar with the amazing Grace Draven:
Grace Draven is a Louisiana native living in Texas with her husband, kids and a big, doofus dog. She has loved storytelling since forever and is a fan of the fictional bad boy. She is the winner of the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice for Best Fantasy Romance of 2014 and 2016, and a USA Today Bestselling author.
You know who Ilona and Gordon are if you’re reading this. But if you want to read more about them, I always love their Road to Publication story.
It will mostly be a relaxed chat moderated by the lovely Meena Jain from Ashland, but please comment below if you have any questions for either of the authors (or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t want to ask publicly).
The chat is set to last around 90 minutes and a recording will be made available on the Ashland YouTube Channel afterwards (like with the Jeaniene Frost chat hosted earlier in May).
Ashland Library asks you to please register for the event, as spaces are limited. Here is a website that lets you figure out Eastern Time as it relates to your time zone.
Blue Willow Bookstore, an independent brick and mortar, is the partner for these events.
If you would like a signed book by one of the authors, you can order them through the bookstore event page. Personalization is not possible unfortunately, as the bookplates are sent ahead of time, but here is everyone’s chance to get a signed copy of Ruby Fever for their collection! And support an independent bookstore in the process, which is a win-win. Of course, if your order includes books not yet released, it will only ship after these are published. If you have any questions or want to enquire about international delivery, please contact Cathy directly at
See you there!
By the way, watch this space for many more live events this summer and fall, including a Q&A session for Ruby Fever during release week, moderated by yours truly. See, we listen when you say you want to see more of House Andrews!
