The Write Stuff for Boston Auction Day 1
Item #9: A autographed copy of LOVE’S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK from Mary Gorman

You are bidding on:
·         An autographed copy of LOVE’S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK
Opening Bid: $10
Auction Begins: Thursday 4/25 @ 10:00AM EDT
Auction Ends: Monday 4/29 @ 10:00PM EDT
About LOVE’S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK: Dave DiSciullo may not be anyone's idea of a traditional romance hero; he's just an ordinary, working-class kind of guy. But Dave is a man with a plan. He's going to use romance novels as guide books to win the woman of his dreams. After all, aren't romance novels really just love's little instruction books?

Bio: Mary Gorman comes from a family of gifted and somewhat compulsive story tellers but so far she's the only one with the patience to write her stories down. A native of Massachusetts, her hobbies include raising exotic birds, tracing family trees (or, as her brother calls it, "collecting dead people") and embarrassing her children.
