702WI Book Event, Madison, WI

I could not be more excited to be heading to beautiful Madison in September. This event is limited to 40 attendees, and includes snacks and surprises. I will sign books at the end of the event. An open reception will follow the event. 

There are two ticket options (ticket-only and ticket+book). You also have the option to purchase multiple tickets and multiple copies of the book. Your confirmation serves as your RSVP and your books will be available to pick up at the event.

And here's a fun interview I did with 702WI.

Shady Ladies Experience II: South Pole Station and Detroit Whiskey Factory

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! 

Or, at least, for the former Stroh's Ice Cream Factory!

For the second Shady Ladies Experience, we are hosting author Ashley Shelby inside the former Stroh's Ice Cream Factory -- now Detroit Whiskey Factory -- for an evening of dinner, conversation, tours and whiskey tastings. 

Shelby will discuss her debut novel, South Pole Station, which the Washington Post says "crackles with energy." You won't want to miss the Nailheads, Beakers and other memorable characters found at the bottom of the world. 

We can't imagine a better setting to beat the heat and think about life on the ice!

Each ticket includes:

  • Signed first edition of South Pole Station
  • Dinner & dessert
  • Tour of the Whiskey Factory
  • Private whiskey tasting 
  • Sunset book reading
  • Discussion with the author 
  • Good conversation with other Shady Ladies!
  • Plus a few surprises up our sleeve. (A Shady Lady never tells all her secrets!)

(If you buy a companion ticket, it includes everything but the book.)

**Note: Dinner is BYOB. Please bring your own bottle of wine (or other beverage) for dinner. We'll have water and iced tea for those wanting something non-alcoholic.**

Buy tickets here!
