Book Release Party, Tuesday April 29 at 7 PM  
Hi, Everyone,

I realize that there is at least one other big event happening on the day that my book is being released, but any of you who can't make it to Albany or will be back in the city by 7 are invited to celebrate the release of my bisexual (m/m/f) historical romantic comedy, Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander.

Where: Revival (upstairs in the lounge, of course)
129 East 15th Street (between 3rd Avenue and Irving Place) Manhattan Gramercy-Flatiron area 212-253-8061
When: Tuesday, April 29th 2008 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 PM

Admission and snacks are free, and there will be a limited number of free books!

This event is being hosted by the meetup group NYC BiChoice.

Library Journal said of Phyllida: "Sparkling with Regency wit and panache, Herendeen's debut novel ... is a brilliant exploration of love, sexuality, class, and gender, but above all, it is a wonderful love story. Highly recommended for those readers comfortable with alternative sexual and erotic literature."

I hope some of you can help me celebrate this happy occasion.

Ann Herendeen

I wish I could go. I really enjoyed Phyllida. How's the bisexual Pride and Prejudice going?

Bi P&P
It's coming very slowly, but thanks for asking. I had to start all over again after I was almost finished because I felt I had made the mood too modern and Mr. Darcy too gay.
Now I think I have it right, but inspiration come on its own schedule and doesn't care about deadlines or publication parties for other books.

Thank you for telling me about enjoying Phyllida. Authors love to hear that.

Hello, I found your book through google (looking for bisexual fantasy books) and then found the bisexual resource bookstore. I'm an accomplished introvert but I'm looking to reading actual books this summer instead of the internet. I have never been to a book signing, the closest would be a comic book convention and this sounds like something interesting to do and honestly meet people outside my family.

I've a couple of questions:

Is there some type of dress code? Because I suck on dressing well. :)
Is it cash only to purchase the books or can I use credit cards?

Dress code? Ha! Free books
I welcome all introverts to my book party on Tuesday, April 29, from 7-9 PM. As a writer, I'm obligated to be an introvert, at least in public.

Please come as you are to the party. It's at Revival, a bar at 129 E. 15th St. (between 3rd Ave. and Irving Pl.), nothing fancy.

There will be 20 free books to be given away. If you miss out on the freebies, Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander is a genuinely published book. Starting April 29, it will be available for cash or credit cards at all bookstores as well as online.

If you want to come to an actual reading/booksigning, I'm doing that at the Park Slope, Brooklyn, Barnes and Noble (267 Seventh Ave.) on Thursday, May 15, at 7 PM. Again, all introverts welcome, and it's at a Brooklyn bookstore, so casual clothing is fine.

Thanks so much for writing. I hope Phyllida makes lots of introverted, bisexual-fantasy friends. But be warned--the setting is 1812 London, and the reality is pretty fantastic!

Sorry about not signing in. :) I was wondering why I didn't see a reply.

I never doubt it being a genuinely published book... I was planning on buying the self-published version when I stumbled onto your journal.

See! I couldn't tell the difference. This is how much I get out. :) Brookyln? I've been there... a different and strange country, this Brook--lyn.

If I can imagine the setting and get into the characters, then I shouldn't have a problem reading it.

Let's see, my summer reading:
1. Sighing about the downfall of Anita Blake, vampire hunter cum whore.
2. Gearing, no itching up to re-read George Martin Song of Ice and Fire series. Wondering if I should re-read Robert Jordan and how they'll end the series now that the author has passed away.
3. Finally catching up on Caroline Roe's Issac of Girona series. WooHoo!
4. Finding so space to re-read Lucius Shepard's "The Golden"
5. Free Books I haven't got to: Signed Naomi Novik, "His Majesty's Dragon" and Peter Hamilton, "Pandora's Star"

Not to mention the great book suggestions from my post on bi_people.

I think your book will fit in fine. :)

Re: Dress code? Ha! Free books
Thanks for the reading suggestions. I'm always complaining that I can't find any good bisexual books to read, then I don't read anything anyway, because when I'm writing it's hard to read. Hard switching the head around over to input instead of output, I guess.

I can read newspaper, magazines, etc., but books? Not easy. But that's very, very bad for the brain to not read books, so...vicious circle.

Anyway, I'll check out the recommendations.
