Bookstore Romance Day logo

Save the date for the 1st annual Bookstore Romance Day taking place on August 17! Books Inc. in Alameda and Books Inc. in Laurel Village will be celebrating romance authors & readers all day with fun themed activities and staff recommendations. Join us!

2:00PM at Books Inc. in Alameda presents: Feminism in Romance + The Future of Romance with Romance Writers of America members Alice Gaines, author of His for the WeekTess Rider, author of Before My World Turned Blue; Lea Kirk, author of The Prophecy Series; and Dreamspinner Press acquisitions editor Sue Brown-Moore.

About the Panel
Alice Gaines, has published 13 full-length books and over 40 novellas. She’s dabbled in historical, paranormal, contemporary, and erotic romance.  She’s a firm believer that romance depicts strong women forging their own way in life.  If that includes a happily ever after, so much the better.  Alice lives in Oakland with a feral cat that adopted her and her pet corn snake, Casper.
Tess Rider writes romance at the crossroads of paranormal, science fiction, and fantasy. An avid cat lover in search of her next cat, she lives with her wonderfully eccentric husband in an equally quirky Victorian in the San Francisco Bay Area.
USA Today Bestselling Author Lea Kirk loves to transport her readers to other worlds with her science fiction romance Prophecy series. She’s an avid Trekkie, Gryffindor, and wannabe space explorer. When she’s not busy writing, she’s hanging out with her wonderful hubby of twenty-nine years, their five kids (aka, the nerd herd), and a spoiled Dobie mix pup.
Sue Brown-Moore is the acquisitions editor and creative guiding hand for the Dreamspun gay category romances from Dreamspinner Press and a freelance developmental editor specializing in romantic fiction.

Bay Area, CA

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
