Books, Music, and Prizes
Inklings Bookshop, English Country Market, Gasperetti’s Floral, Caffeine Connection Cafe, Pet Pantry and Yakima Beads Rocks and Candy Emporium have joined for a Saturday of music, a large raffle prize, a few prize bags, and a meet & greet with 7 amazing local WA authors this Saturday, August 21st., for the third Bookstore Romance Day. The music will start at 1pm, with the book signing starting at 2pm. The event will go until 4.
With that in mind, we at Inklings would like to tell you a little more about the authors joining us this Saturday!
Please note that many of these titles are independently publish and it is hard for us to carry them on a regular basis, so some of them might only be available on the day or as a special order.
The most local of all the locals! Dalyn Weller is right here in Yakima and you might know her from her devotional book previously sold in-store. What you might not know is that she also writes, as she puts it: Inspirational Romances with a bit of grit. She will bring two titles with her on the day, Love Happens at Sweetheart Farm and I’ll be Yours for Christmas.
Katee Robert is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author and her books have sold over 1 million copies! Her latest book, a retelling of Hades and Persephone: Neon Gods, has been printed and reprinted a few times since its release June 1st.
Asa Maria Bradley
Asa Maria Bradley is a bestselling author of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. She grew up in Sweden surrounded by archaeology and history steeped in Norse mythology, so it is no surprise that her books have plenty of that! She now lives in the Pacific Northwest and we are lucky to benefit from all her creativity and experience.
Lucy Gilmore (or you might know her as Tamara Morgan), is an Inklings bestselling author! Isn’t that lovely? You might remember meeting her when she came to visit us with her Christmas themed book: Puppy Christmas, in 2019. Her newest book carries the same charm and wit and we are sure you will love it: Ruff and Tumble. Besides, if you own a puppy, you just have too!
Shelli is another New York Times Bestselling author to join us! She says she read her first romance novel when she snatched it off her mother’s bookshelf at the age of eleven. One taste and she was forever hooked!
If you fell in love with the British TV shows Bridgertons and Downtown Happy, here is a local author to give you a historical romance fix. She graduated from the University of Washington with a B.A. in English Language and Literature. While there, a copy of Pride and Prejudice ended up changing her life, and she decided to study the great books of the Regency and Victorian eras. Now she enjoys writing her own tales set in the historical period she loves.
Anna Alexander is the award winning author of the Heroes of Saturn and the Sprawling A Ranch series. With Hugh Jackman’s abs and Christopher Reeve’s blue eyes as inspiration, she loves spinning tales of superheroes finding love.
We believe there is a book for just about everyone between these fabulous 7 ladies. Come support your local stores and these great authors on the 21st! We look forward to seeing you.
