Be in the know about new releases and reader exclusives!
My name is Patti Fiala. I write contemporary romance and romantic suspense as PJ Fiala, and I’m planning an author/reader event for April 24, 2021. This event will be different for a couple of reasons.
The Venue is the Automobile Gallery in Green Bay, Wisconsin. If you’ve never heard of the Automobile Gallery, I invite you to take a look. https://theautomobilegallery.org/
The other way in which this is a different event is that there will only be 15 authors (16 including me) The venue is not huge, but can hold a few hundred people. Readers will select the author they want to have lunch with at time of sign up.
The book signing event will be open to the public.
BUT, we’re also encouraging readers and authors to bring their spouses. The Automobile Gallery is an interesting place. If spouses don’t want to eat with an author, they will have the opportunity to eat inside the Gallery at a space set up just for this purpose. There is a boardroom upstairs in the Gallery in which either a sporting game will be playing on the large screen, or if nothing available, an old car movie will be on. There will be volunteers around the Gallery, talking about the cars and some of the interesting facts known about each car.
Our event photographer, ERic McKinney of 6:12 Photography will be on hand taking pictures of the readers and spouses (if around) with their favorite cars. Usually there are only 4 cars in the gallery open to allow visitors to sit inside and have their picture taken. The gallery has agreed to open up more cars to allow our readers, authors and spouses to sit inside and enjoy many of the classic cars on display, up close and personal.
Don’t miss this exciting event, it’s sure to be fun for everyone.
Along with sponsoring the Saturday Breakfast for all attendees, Stacey, Donna and I are also sponsoring a Thursday, June 4, 2020 Boardroom. Check it out.

I will not share, sell or rent the email you have given me with anyone. I will never spam you. There is an “unsubscribe” button at the end of all emails I send and clicking on it will remove your email from my mailing list.
I do have cookies installed on my site, it’s to help me collect stats about visitors and I get super excited when I see people visiting from all over the world.
Lastly, I do use affiliated links which means that I may get advertising fees by advertising and linking to some stores on line (basically, I can receive commissions on some purchases you make when you arrive at some vendors sites after clicking on a link on one of my sites). This doesn’t change anything for you since the price remains the same.
