TALK OF THE TOWN #45 – What is Romance? Event at Waterstones

Welcome back to Talk of the Town, a weekly link-up I am co-hosting with Shaz from Jera’s Jamboree. We’d love you to share your book related blog posts with us.  Please visit my Talk of the Town page if you are unsure of how a link-up works. We are looking forward to reading your blog posts.

I didn’t manage to do any reading this week. With a brand new baby in the house (who very much likes staying awake during the night), I try and catch up on sleep whenever she is sleeping during the day. I love these newborn days though – there is nothing better than to look into the little person’s face and be overcome with absolute pride and joy.

For this week’s #ToTT, I wanted to  share this exciting event with you. I won’t be able to attend, but maybe that’s something of interest to you? On Monday, 13th February, four romance writers will get together at Tottenham Court Road Waterstones in London and discuss the Romance genre; how it has evolved over time – the impact of feminism and self-publishing – and where it is heading now. Audiences will also be offered a free glass of wine upon arrival. The four writers are: Isabelle Broom, Sarah Morgan, Nicole Cornick and Jean Fullerton. They will be interviewed by Fanny Blake, books editor for Woman & Home. More details for the event can be found here.

TALK OF THE TOWN is sponsored by Black and White Publishing who kindly support a monthly giveaway. Everyone who tweets with the hashtag #ToTT will be entered into this giveaway for either a single book or a book bundle.   The giveaway might be paperback (UK/ROI) or digital (UK/ROI/INTL).  The winner will be randomly selected using Tweetdraw and books will be sent directly from Black & White Publishing. If you are sharing my weekly post please include @bwpublishing if possible. Thank you :-).

Showcase book of the month: The Secret Life of Lucy Lovecake by Pippa James.



  1. Happy weekend! That sounds like a wonderful author event- would love to go to a Waterstones someday. 🙂 And how exciting with the little one! Have a fabulous weekend.

    • Thanks Greg! I love events like this too. Unfortunately most of them are always in London which is involved with lots of travelling :-(.

  2. Ooh, the event sounds very interesting. Shame a don’t live a bit nearer.
    Sleepless nights aren’t much fun but those newborn days are priceless. 🙂

    • It’s a shame that most of these events are in London. I agree re sleepless nights. I know they will pass so quickly. For now, I am enjoying every moment.
