Writer Angelia Sparrow will be at the first, of what hopes will become an annual literary event that features Gay Romance in Literature. “Get Steamy in the Big Easy” is about bringing the author and the reader together for an event unlike any other. From the Bourbon Orleans hotel, located in the famous French Quarter to the River Boat book signing cruise on the Creole Queen, there are organized events and parties taking full advantage of the location while providing a multitude of opportunities to mix with readers, other authors, and publishers.

There will be no seminars or workshops – this is about showcasing the authors and publishers.

Join them down in New Orleans, October 13 – 16 of 2011, to get Steamy in the Big Easy.
