Book Launch at Gravity Pope – ARWA writer M. Jane Colette’s new novel “Tell Me”


So… we’re having this KILLER PARTY

You are invited to Calgary’s steamiest book launch party, to celebrate the
Canadian print release of *Tell Me*—a beyond-steamy erotic romance set in
Calgary, published by HarperCollins UK.
Tuesday, December 6th
7 to 9 p.m.
1126 17 Ave SW, Calgary

There will be discounts on fab shoes and other merchandise if you buy
a book. Because Christmas is a-coming and Gravity Pope is an AWESOME event
host/sponsor. And there really will be burlesque dancers, tarot card readings and
luscious desserts. It’s that kind of book, so it’s that kind of party.

About the book:

“The Story of O meets Jane Austen for the texting generation.”
“*Tell Me *really pushes at the boundaries of erotica.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     “Sexy and messy and full of competing desires and passions. Just like life. Just like the best relationships.”
