Naughty & Nice

Barbara Vey -- December 13th, 2013


Last year I was lucky enough to attend this event, but this year we have Cub Reporter Maggie Mae Gallagher on the scene.  Maggie Mae graduated from the University of Tampa with a bachelor’s degree in music. Continuing her education, Maggie received a master’s degree in history from the University of Missouri, St. Louis but writing has always been a passion. As a teenager she wrote reams of poetry, but realized her true love lay with creating characters and stories. Maggie Mae adores exotic worlds of mythic beings, folklore and fairy tales. She currently resides in St. Louis with her two furry felines, Guinness & Isabella and her debut novel, Annointed, will be available February 2014.

Indie bookstore Rose’s Bookhouse in Saint Peters, Missouri held its annual Naughty and Nice Booksigning Event this past Saturday, December 7th. The event has been dubbed a “Girls Night Out” and boy was it ever. Readers mingled with some of their favorite Erotic and Romance Authors, sipping wine and nibbling on fabulous appetizers from their sponsor Stefanini’s.

Reader Gena Cardinale said she, “loved the rosesintimacy and variety of authors, that getting
a chance to hear all the different stories the authors had made it a truly unique experience.” For the small price of the admission ticket, readers had the chance to win baskets of prizes, loaded up on signed books from their favorite author and helped out a good cause. One of the raffles even had a Kobo Tablet up for grabs. The proceeds from all the raffles were donated to Books For Soldiers.

roseWhen you glanced around the Elk’s Lodge, what you found were women, enjoying the
evening with their best gal pals, and talking about books. Rose’s Bookhouse has long been a champion of the romance genre and this event, while on the more risqué aisle of romance, truly displayed the passion and zeal Rose’s has for the genre. USA Today Bestselling Author, Jade Lee commented, “While it was fun having a naughty cake, what was supremely awesome about this event was the opportunity to talk books and romance with readers.”

For Readers who love romance, the Naughty and Nice Event hosted by Rose’s
Bookhouse should be on your must list of events to attend. Plans are already underway for next year’s event, so mark your calendars for the first Saturday in December.

Bottom Line: The best event to pick up a little something for yourself at Christmas.

    Naughty & Nice III was a blast! I absolutely LOVE hosting this event! It is, by far, my favorite event every year and this year was no exception with all of our great authors J Kenner/Julie Kenner/J.K. Beck, Beth Kery, Jade Lee, Shawntelle Madison, Kimberly Knight & Eileen Dreyer! We received some amazing feedback with readers really enjoying the one on one time with the authors. We already have numerous authors lined up for next year’s event on Saturday, December 6th 2014 with 8-10 authors planned. Look out, folks! Naughty & Nice 4-Play should NOT be missed!

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
