Swoon is officially a series! We can confirm that our second event will be happening at 7:30pm on Friday, April 4th, at the wonderful, local chocolate house, Cocoa Nymph. Save the date!
I’m absolutely THRILLED to announce that Jeffrey Ricker is coming on-board Swoon to be my co-host for this event. For those of you who don’t remember, Jeffrey was a reader at Swoon’s first event, and I’m so pleased he’s going to co-host with me. Jeffrey is the author of Detours, published in 2011 by Bold Strokes Books, and his YA fantasy The Unwanted is coming out this spring! His writing has appeared in the anthologies Fool for Love: New Gay Fiction,Men of the Mean Streets, Speaking Out, and others. A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, he is completing an MFA at the University of British Columbia and lives in St. Louis with his partner and their contrary dachshund.
On top of his literary achievements, Jeffrey is also a talented graphic designer and photographer, and a hot chocolate connoisseur. He’s bringing lots of expertise, enthusiasm, and love to this budding reading series.
Watch this space for more exciting Swoon news. We’ve got some lovely posters to show you (designed by–you guessed it–the wonderful Jeffrey Ricker) and some lovely authors to introduce to you very soon!
