The New Sign of Love Online: #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Julia Quinn Hosts Virtual/Live Book Signing Event at Powell’s

May 20, 2010

BEAVERTON, Ore., May 20 /PRNewswire/ –

    WHAT:     The Book Signing. Revolutionized.

               Julia Quinn helms Avon's launch of the live/virtual book
               signing, powered by VivoLive (http://www.vivolive.com/
               harpercollins/juliaquinn). Julia Quinn will be reading,
               answering questions, and signing copies for anyone who
               attends her event at Powell's Books: in-person or online.

               "We often remark, within the romance community, that our
               readers are notoriously 'shy,'" quips Avon publicity
               director Pam Jaffee. "They may not flock to live author
               appearances, but will raid the stores the next day for the
               signed copies ... and they love to interact with their
               favorite authors online. So," she continues, "we think this
               type of virtual/live event will engage and appeal to
               romance fans."

               New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn, the romance
               novelist and Harvard Graduate who's been called a
    WHO:       "contemporary Jane Austen."
