Come early and party with the Moning Maniacs!
When I first began thinking about doing a book launch party for Shadowfever, I knew exactly what kind of atmosphere I wanted for it: Barrons Books & Baubles—Old World, timeless, classic. Also like Barrons Books & Baubles, I wanted it to be set in a city that was filled with craic: vibrant, exotic and exciting. Where else but New Orleans? A city I love!
I’m thrilled to invite you to join me at Le Pavillon (one of my all-time favorite hotels) in New Orleans on January 16, 17 and 18th for the Shadowfever book launch party! To see how gorgeous the hotel is check out the online brochure.
The festivities unofficially kick off on Sunday the 16th with a scavenger hunt in the heart of the French Quarter. I plan to arrive earlier to take a Big Easy advantage of the holiday weekend, as Monday is Martin Luther King Day. I’ll be staying at Le Pavillon as will Leiha and many other Moning Maniacs. We’re looking forward to being in the same hotel together when Mac’s epic journey comes to an end.
The Shadowfever signing will begin at 4:00 PM on Monday the 17th at Le Pavillon hosted by Octavia Books* and continue until midnight.
The following day, Tuesday the 18th, I will give several talks starting at 10:30am at Le Pavillon discussing the Fever Series from conception to end for the first time ever, and answering your questions—so read fast! All events (except for the scavenger hunt) will be taking place at the hotel.
In order to get the best rate possible, when you call to make your reservation you must say you are with the KMM SHADOWFEVER GROUP, otherwise normal rates will apply and they are significantly higher.
Le Pavillon is a boutique hotel, unique, stunning and smallish, with only 200 or so rooms, so please make your reservation early to insure you get a room before they are all booked. You don't have to stay at Le Pavillon to participate in the book signing and discussion.
