Your Hosts

Jaymin Eve
Jaymin EveWall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author
For as long as she could remember reading was Jaymin’s escape. She’d explore the enchanted faraway tree, or solve a fantastic mystery. Books had such a profound impact on her life, she knew they’d always be there for comfort and distraction.

Jaymin never thought she’d make the transition to writing herself, but her stories just wouldn’t leave her alone. So, while she still loves to read, Jaymin is truly living her dream; creating fantasy worlds that, to date, have been read by more than 2 million people online.

And now, she’s also hosting the inaugural Ballgowns and Books Event.

Tate James
Tate JamesUSA Today & International Bestselling Author
Tate James is a USA Today Bestselling Author of Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy and sometimes dabbles in Romantic Suspense. She was born and raised in the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand) but now lives in Australia with her husband, babies and furbaby.

She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is most definitely not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.

And now, she’s also hosting the inaugural Ballgowns and Books Event.
