About Event

Critically acclaimed romance authors, Kickstarter creators and the Head of Publishing? You already know it’s going to be a good time. Join us for a magical evening filled with Q&A, writing tips and of course, love — with special guests Adriana Herrera, Lucy Eden and Melinda Kucsera.

Event Details:

  • Date: May 24, 2024

  • Time: 7–9pm

  • Location: The Ripped Bodice, 218 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

What to Expect:

  • Engaging panel conversation featuring Kickstarter’s Head of Publishing, Oriana Leckert, joined by previous Kickstarter creators and critically acclaimed authors Adriana Herrera, Lucy Eden and Melinda Kucsera.

  • Q&A session where you can delve into your questions about publishing, crowdfunding, and writing.

  • Opportunities to network with fellow authors and creators in the inspiring setting of The Ripped Bodice store.

The Ripped Bodice is an independent brick-and-mortar bookstore devoted to the celebration of romance novels. The store is proudly Woman and Queer Owned and was originally funded on Kickstarter back in 2016!

It's your chance to connect with industry experts, talented creators, and fellow enthusiasts in a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Hopefully we can inspire you to launch your own Kickstarter campaign for our month-long celebration of romance in Heartstrings and Hardbacks in July.

We can’t wait to see you there!

About Melinda Kucsera
Melinda Kucsera is a USA Today best-selling author of epic fantasy adventures. Best known for he Curse Breaker series, Melinda has launched two successful Kickstarter campaigns and has a third on its way this year.

About Adrianna Herrera
USA Today best-selling and Audie-winning author Adriana Herrera was born and raised in the Caribbean, but for the last fifteen years has let her job (and her spouse) take her all over the world. She loves writing stories about people who look and sound like her people, getting unapologetic happy endings. The New York Times once called her book "sweet, thoughtful, and delightfully filthy too."

About Lucy Eden
Lucy Eden is the nom de plume of a romance-obsessed author who writes the kind of romance she loves to read. She’s a sucker for alphas with a soft gooey center, over-the-top romantic gestures, strong & smart MCs, humor, love at first sight (or pretty damn close), happily ever afters and of course, dirty & steamy love scenes. When Lucy isn’t writing, she’s busy reading, or listening to, every book she can get her hands on — romance or otherwise.
