Two Julie James Events with Jane Litte (and me)

Book Love Irresistibly - Julie James Two events I'd like you to know about this week! 

First, if you're near Naperville, IL – and hold up a minute. Naperville, by virtue of being outside Chicago, is kind of near EVERYTHING.

It's right in the middle of North America, almost sort of!

See? Kinda near EVERYTHING. So if you're curious about Julie James' new book, Love Irresisitiblythen you'll be interested in the Jane-and Julie event, which is tonight

Tuesday 2 April – 7pm

Le Chocolat du Bouchard
2nd Floor (aka The Loft)
129 South Washington Street
Naperville, IL 60540

Special event: Jane Litte of Dear Author chats with Julie about Love Irresistibly. Julie will be signing books, and also giving away a signed collection of all her books (JUST THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE, PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, SOMETHING ABOUT YOU, A LOT LIKE LOVE, ABOUT THAT NIGHT, LOVE IRRESISTIBLY) to one lucky attendee!


Naperville is convenient to everything, really. So if you're in Yellowknife, no excuses! 

Then, Friday, Julie James will be in New York, where I will be doing an informal and likely very goofy Q&A with her: 

Friday 5 April – 7pm

86th & Lexington Ave
150 East 86th Street
New York, NY 10028

Author event: Sarah Wendell of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books chats with Julie about Love Irresistibly. Book signing.

Unfortunately for me, the Upper East Side of Manhattan isn't really close to everything. There's ocean on one side and the rest of the US on the other, accessible by two tunnels and two bridges, plus some ferrys:

Well, maybe there's something to the east….

same map, more of the ocean showing to the east


Wait, I think I see something….

Same map moved east, with Portugal and Ireland showing


OH HAI PORTUGAL! Hi Ireland! Hola, Canarias! So Portugal, Ireland, and the Canary Islands, plus a bit of Morocco and Western Sahara – you're close enough. Come on over! It's just an ocean, come on. 

If you'd like to meet Julie James (she's very awesome and has fabulous shoes – I'm already worried which shoes I should wear, you guys) come on over! The 86th and Lex BN has a terrific staff and a wonderful event space on the lover level. If I recall correctly, it's enclosed, too, so we can get as bawdy as we want. Heh. The description says “no-holds-barred” but I don't think we'd planned on any wrestling. 

So if you're Naperville (which is everyone, pretty much) or near the Upper East Side (HI PORTUGAL!) I hope you'll join either me or Jane for one of these two events.

    Oh! I love Julie James – Just the Sexiest Man Alive was one of the first romance books I read and she got me hooked! BUT I’m in Australia, so I’m too far away to attend :/

    Your “OH HAI PORTUGAL!” made me LOL – I’m of Portuguese descent and I used to trace the line from NY to Lisbon when I was a kid all the time. (Yeah, I didn’t get out much.)

    Meanwhile, there’s a Shake Shack on one side of the BN and an H&M on the other, so maybe it’s worth the trek from Joisey. :-)

    holy plot moppets I LIVE IN NAPERVILLE. (but I work in Chicago. Crazy.)


    1) did not see this post until Wednesday; and

    2) said plot moppets would have kept me at home in any event

    But next time maybe I’ll be there.  Le Chocolat is awesome.  They even have dark chocolate vitamins there.  sigh

    Ah, I’m sitting at my desk in Agueda, Portugal at this moment looking at that map and thinking – so close (?!) and yet so far at the same time. 

    Have a good time for all of us that can’t make it.

    ha, ha my capcha is meeting95 – hope you’ll be meeting(at least)95 smart bitches at this event.
