Emerald City Romance Author & Reader Event Interest

We are working on finalizing this event, but wanted to open up the ability for authors to indicate their interest in registering as an attending author for this event. Once registration is open, we will approach authors in order of registered interest, to have the first opportunities to secure a spot for this event.
