Hi, joysann here. It was my pleasure to be invited to attend Erin McCarthy‘s Paperback Writer Party celebrating her 50th book. Erin invited her friends to join her at an upscale trendy cocktail bar in Cleveland, Ohio, called The Velvet Tango Room (take a look at their interesting cocktail menu). Among the many guests were her close friends, fellow authors Kathy Love and Rhonda Helms, as well as fellow members of Northeast Ohio Romance Writers of America (NEORWA).

Erin started her writing career 11 years ago through a contest, and now her 50th book, Full Throttle, is coming out in December. From my experience, Erin’s books tend to be light, sexy, funny and tongue-in-cheek, but she’s also written novels with a darker flavor. Over the years she’s written contemporary romance, paranormal romance, chic lit, and is now including New Adult romances in her repertoire. She’s also contributed to many short story anthologies with other popular romance authors. Her 50th book is part of her Fast Track series, making NASCAR a romantic venue.

Erin was gorgeous in red at her party, though she’d mentioned in an invitation note that, while she wants her guests to dress comfortably, she was wearing a cocktail dress to counter her usual work-a-day outfit of yoga pants. With the delightful desserts, many give-away books, and her happy smiles, Erin’s party was a delightful celebration.

Bottom Line:  Congratulations, Erin! Let’s do it again for your 100th in not too many years.
