Inspired by our love for all things scary, JCW hosts a celebration of the paranormal genre.
Third and Vine, an elegant cheese and wine tavern nestled in Jersey City's Historic Downtown, welcomes Jersey City Writers for light fare, happy hour and paranormal fiction.
The event features guest speaker and award-winning novelist Leanna Renee Hieber, author of paranormal romances The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker and Darker Still from the Magic Most Foul Series. Sarah McClean, New York Times best -selling author calls Darker Still "a lush gothic tale that begs for reading". Leanna Renee Hieber will be available for questions and book signing.
Additionally, we will have handouts for aspiring writers in search of publications which accept paranormal fiction.
Suggested donation $5.
