Romance in New Orleans, Pt. 2

I enjoyed meeting with members of the Southern Louisiana Romance Writers of America chapter here in New Orleans last weekend. Thanks especially to Chris Smith, super librarian, for arranging the space and etc.

I was surprised to learn that not all the writers there were romance writers; there were also writers of thrillers, horrors, paranormals, detective stories, and young adult fiction.

Hear COMET on WRBH 88.3 FM, New Orleans Reading Radio

If you tune in to WRBH 88.3 FM in New Orleans this week, you can hear THE NIGHT OF THE COMET read aloud daily at 11:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. You can also listen live online.


WRBH was set up in 1982 as New Orleans Radio for the Blind. It’s the only full-time reading service on FM radio in the US.
