Bookstores prepare for Bookstore Romance Day on Saturday

Bookstore romance day is one of our top stories from the writerly world this week. The logo features a heart outline, with half of the heart spelling out "Bookstore Romance Day" and the other half picturing shelves of purple books.

August 17th marks the inaugural celebration of Bookstore Romance Day,  “a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction – its books, readers, and writers – and to strengthen the relationships between bookstores and the Romance community.” See if your local bookstore is participating here.
