The Rose City Romance Writers — or at least a small and giggly contingent of the group — attended the monthly After Dark party at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This month’s theme was “Guilty Pleasures” so OF COURSE romance novelists were invited! We brought chocolate and books and double entendres which are all excellent guilty pleasures IMO.
One of our “interactive” stations was the NEVER HAVE I EVER board (pictured above) where visitors were invited to post their challenge and maybe pick up an idea or two. Most of the sticky notes involved sex. Probably because of the proximity to romance novels ;) Guilty as charged!
Other attending authors were Linda Mercury, EJ Russell, Jenna Bayley-Burke, and Lynda Aicher. If YOU need a guilty pleasure — or heck, just pleasure! — go get one of their books. Ego te absolvo.
Also, here’s a glimpse into what the party was like:
When the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry chose the theme of “Sex” for their latest OMSI After Dark event, I suppose it was only natural for them to think of the Rose City Romance Writers. (Thanks for inviting us, OMSI!) Although I admit, their request that we make our contribution “interactive” made me blush becomingly.
Regardless, I’ll be there tonight along with a contingent of my fellow romance authors including Nancy Brophy, Jenna Bayley-Burke, Linda Mercury, and Heidi Joy Tretheway doing our romance author song ‘n’ dance for a hopefully curious, adult-beverage imbibing museum crowd. In addition to some show and tell — heh heh — we have a quick sex quiz (sex shouldn’t always be quick, but quizzes should be) and a giveaway bag o’ books.
If you want to play along from home (although wouldn’t you rather be with us, imbibing adult beverages?) click on the quiz board to see the questions larger and answer in the comments section. Then sign up for my newsletter. I’ll be choosing a winner from my newsletter readers so if you already get it, no need to sign up again.
We hope to be back for OMSI After Dark’s May event — “Guilty Pleasures”. Assuming we don’t get 86’d for our wanton ways ;)
Here’s the last tease from MATED BY MOONLIGHT. Now that the story is loose upon the world, I have to let it go and let it be what it will be. Good luck, werelings! Try not to bite anyone who doesn’t deserve it ;)
