A small contingent of nine authors from the New Jersey Romance Writers put in an appearance at the Red Bank Street Festival. That's me in the purple T-shirt with the NJRW logo on it.
Between us, we covered quite a few subgenres of romance--historical, inspirational, paranormal, contemporary, and chick-lit. Something for everyone's taste.
Each of us took turns standing outside the booth and trying to encourage the passersby to visit with us. Some people refused and said they did not read romance. (They don't know what they're missing.) Some went by and said they did not read!!!! And then there were those who walked right by, gazing straight ahead as if they did not see us.
Still, some took the suggestion and slipped into the shade of our little enclave. We handed them bookmarks, pens, and candy.
We sold books, too.
It would have been a perfect day if it wasn't so HOT! But we did have fun talking with each other.
Writers are very interesting people. :^)
