Kiss & Tell Literary Salon Presents New Releases in Romantic Comedies with Kilby Blades and Taleen Voskuni - May 21, 2024, 6:30pm. Books Inc. Alameda, 1344 Park Street, Alameda, CA 94501

Kilby Blades is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance. She is an RWA Vivian Award finalist, a Publisher’s Weekly BookLife Prize Semi-Finalist, a HOLT Medallion finalist, and has been lauded by critics for “easing feminism and equality into her novels” (IndieReader) and “writing characters who complement each other like a fine wine does a good meal” (Publisher’s Weekly). When she’s not writing, Kilby goes to movie matinees alone, where she eats Chocolate Pocky and buttered popcorn and usually smuggles in not-a-little-bit of red wine. She is a cinephile, an oenophile, a social justice fighter and—most of all—a glutton for a good story.


Taleen Voskuni is an award-winning writer who grew up in the Bay Area Armenian diaspora. She graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in English and currently lives in San Francisco, working in tech. Other than a newfound obsession with writing rom-coms, she spends her free time cultivating her kids, her garden, and her dark chocolate addiction. Her first novel, Sorry, Bro, received starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist, was named an Amazon editor’s pick, and was favorably reviewed in The New York Times. Sorry, Bro is also winner of the 2023 Golden Poppy award for best romance. Lavash at First Sight is her second published novel.
