The New Tea House!

So for a while I’ve been thinking of having a special place for my guests, somewhere their posts wouldn’t get lost with all my other posts, where they’re all together so folks can find them easily, and somewhere that offers a little something more. Somewhere relaxed where folks could chat about their favorite gay romance books, check out new authors, and titles, as well as have guests who are reviewers and even readers. It suddenly occurred to be I had just the place. The Purple Rose Tea House!

The Tea House is now officially open and at the moment guests are scheduled Tuesdays (authors) and Thursdays (all other guests), though there are some exceptions. All the info is on the site if anyone is interested in being a guest. I’d love to have you over for tea! Or coffee of course ;)
