Authors Show True Colors, Personalities Bright Like Their

Even though it was on the cool side in Spokane this May, there was no damper on the rendezvous that induced online friends from all over the country plus Australia to attend.  Last weekend eleven women gathered and stayed in a local hotel to enjoy an Author, Writer, and Reader Retreat.

The attendees were also honored to share some delightful party times at the home of Author, Jillian Hart and with Author/Co-Hostess, Janet Tronstad.  Now…have you ever heard authors give a partial reading of a new work in an intimate group, a book before it is published?   That is exactly what Jill and Janet gave their admirers in their own voices.  The character’s personalities took hold in the “windmills of the minds” of the ardent listeners.

One of the highlights of the time together, was the arrival of a special online friend from Australia, that we call Ausjenny!  She is an avid reader, especially of Jill and Janet’s books.  Most of the group met on “Goodreads” or the “Harlequin/Love Inspired Community Forum“.

The Davenport Hotel, downtown Spokane, served Tea and Lunch to the group in the Safari Room on  Monday afternoon.  Guests enjoyed a nice array of specialty foods and desserts.  Many photos were taken during the last scheduled event to take home to reminisce.  Two husbands attended the Tea, and one husband attended all the other functions as well.  How nice that the group got to put a real face to each name during the visits as well as gaining a feel for each personality.
