From Kensington’s official press release regarding Kate Duffy’s death last weekend:
To honor her memory, Kensington is planning an annual publishing event that will include many of the romance authors Kate Duffy worked with through the years, as well as provide the opportunity to develop new talent such as those who were such a rich part of her legacy. Kensington will be partnering with a charitable organization, and additional details will be announced as soon as they are available.
I have hopes that this event will rock the casbah, the surrounding tri-state area, and many additional planets. As soon as I hear more, I’ll spread the word here.
More than anything else this week, so many people I’ve emailed with have said the same thing: we’re going to miss Kate like holy damn hell. Whatever the event is, I hope it rocks, and rocks hard.
