The Haunted Book Shop hosting Romance Day

Saturday, August 19 · 3 – 5 pm CDT

The Haunted Book Shop 9 S Joachim St Mobile, AL 36602-3209

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up downtown. The Haunted Book Shop is steaming up the windows with romance! On August 19th, 2023 we are celebrating love stories, happily ever afters, meet cutes, and spicy scenes in honor of Bookstore Romance Day.

Best-selling romance authors Manda Collins, Cynthia Eden, and Katie Reus will be in-store to greet fans and sign books from 3-5PM. Attendees will also get the chance to shop local popup shops. And, because Angela is in love with love stories, she’s offering a free gift with the purchase of $10 or more of romance books, while supplies last.

Go to to reserve your spot and pre-order books for Bookstore Romance Day.

ABOUT MANDA COLLINS, author of Ladies’ Guide series

Manda Collins grew up on a combination of Nancy Drew books and Jane Austen novels, and her own brand of Regency romantic suspense is the result. A former academic librarian, she holds advanced degrees in English Lit and Librarianship. Her books have been favorably reviewed in Entertainment Weekly, Library Journal, Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Bookpage, and USA Today. Her novel Duke with Benefits, was named one of Kirkus Books Best Romance Novels of 2017. When she’s not writing she can be found advocating for disability rights on Twitter, watching true crime documentaries, and knitting very inexpertly. A native of Alabama, she lives on the Gulf Coast with a very stubborn cat and more books than are strictly necessary.

ABOUT CYNTHIA EDEN, author of the Wilde Ways series

Cynthia Eden is a New York Times, USA Today, Digital Book World, and IndieReader best-seller. Cynthia writes sexy tales of contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and paranormal romance. Since she began writing full-time in 2005, Cynthia has written over one hundred novels and novellas.

ABOUT KATIE REUS, author of the Ancients Rising series

Katie Reus is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Ancients Rising series, the Endgame Trilogy and the Red Stone Security series. She fell in love with romance at a young age thanks to books she pilfered from her mom’s stash. Years later she loves reading romance almost as much as she loves writing it.

However, she didn’t always know she wanted to be a writer. After changing majors many times, she finally graduated summa cum laude with a degree in psychology. Not long after that she discovered a new love. Writing. She now spends her days writing paranormal romance and romantic suspense.
