speaking & signing


We love our local authors here at BookPerople. Tonight, we're thrilled to welcome Austin author Brett Burlison with his new novel, Riverside. Part romance and part suspense story, Riverside is a tell-your-friends-about-it, god old-fashioned crime novel about a young couple struggling for the American dream, and the lengths to which they will go to protect it. Tonight at 7PM. 


Two young lovers decide to move in together and open a cafe only to be hindered by their own pasts, drugs, and bad guys from New Orleans. Set in Austin, Texas in the early nineties.

Bobby Patrick, abandoned by his mother as a child and by his alcoholic father during high school, wants a better life for himself and his true love, Katie. The couple decides to open a café and chase their dreams under the radiant Austin sunsets. There, the long, hot days of summer in inspire their passion--but complications arise when Katie's former love interest returns, bringing with him a whirlwind of trouble.


Brett Burlison is a native Texan who lives in Northern California. He is a trial lawyer and practices in San Francisco. Riverside is his debut novel.
