Join Avon Romance Live and Turn the Page Bookstore for a live streaming chat starring rock stars of romance Nora Roberts, Sylvia Day, and Jeaniene Frost

WHAT:

This Valentine’s Day weekend, Avon Romance Live, Turn the Page Bookstore and Vivo team up to bring readers across the country an opportunity to interact with their favorite authors as they discuss romance, their works, and the life of an author. Viewers will have a chance to send in questions for the authors, as well as buy signed and personalized copies of their books directly from Turn the Page.

WHO:

Three of the most powerful names in romance, Nora Roberts, Sylvia Day, and Jeaniene Frost, join Pamela Palmer, Erica Bauermeister, Jaci Burton, Stephanie Dray/Draven, and J. Kenner to chat with readers on the most romantic weekend of the year.

WHERE/WHEN:

Readers can watch these amazing authors live from www.avonromancelive.com or http://www.vivolive.com/avon-books/turn-the-page this Saturday, February 15, at 11:15 a.m. ET. Signed and personalized copies of books from every author can be purchased here: http://ttpbooks.com/category/VB.html.

WHY:

Pam Jaffee, senior director of publicity for Avon Books, explains the importance of virtually connecting readers and authors: “Independent booksellers have always pushed the envelope, and indies like Turn the Page have always been supportive when we implement strategies to bring digitally-connected readers into ‘hometown’ events, such as this giant Valentine’s weekend event featuring romance greats Nora Roberts, Sylvia Day and Jeaniene Frost.

“We know the line of readers wanting to interact with the many authors appearing in-store this weekend will flow out the front door, and way down Main Street, Boonsboro. But there are hundreds, or even thousands, more who’d love to interact with their favorite authors, who can’t make it across the country – or the world – to attend the in-store event. Luckily, romance readers are among the most digitally-savvy authors, and they love to be part of the action, and they embrace the opportunity to tune in, online. Vivo’s exclusive, interactive technology allows us to ‘stream’ an exclusive author Q&A before the doors open at Turn the Page – and gives participating ‘virtual’ consumers the ability to buy signed copies of new titles directly from this fabulous independent bookstore.”
