I am scheduled to be at this event, signing Saints Preserve Us and Pray For Us Sinners at At Journey's End B&B. Wings author Lydia Filzen is also scheduled to be there.

The St. Augustine Historic Inns and the First Coast Romance Writers Association are hosting a Sunday afternoon tour of Inns and published romance writers on October 2, 2005 from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. Each of the 24 historic inns will open their doors to tour goers, sharing their distinctive and award-winning properties for a glimpse into the romantic past. At the same time, prominent romance writers will be at each inn meeting fans and signing their most recently published novels.

The cost for the ‘Romantic Inns and Writers Tour’ is $20, (a non-refundable donation) with a portion of the proceeds to be given to EPIC Community Services (Education Prevention Intervention & Counseling).

Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling (904)829-3295 or purchased on the day of the event at participating inns. Each ticket will have a self-guided map of inns and authors for tour goers’ convenience.

A $20 discount on bed & breakfast accommodations will be offered from October 2-6 for tour ticket holders (up to $20/night per room).

Nationally recognized for more than a decade for their open house Holiday Tour each December, the St. Augustine Historic Inns are a stunning collection of 19th and 20th century homes, dating from 1791-1915. They embody the romance and history of St. Augustine, offering the best in architectural preservation, unique character, tradition and hospitality for which America’s oldest city is known. Within walking distance to each other, they are surrounded by charming boutiques, international restaurants, historic landmarks, the Atlantic Ocean, legends and ghosts that go back to the founding of St. Augustine in 1565. This year, the Inn Association celebrates its 20th Anniversary.
