January 15, 2015 - Charlotte, NC  – Join author Rayn Newson as she signs her latest book, Meet Me at Lush on Sunday, February 15 at Mugs Coffee 5126 Park Rd, Charlotte, NC. Meet Me at Lush will make it’s debut alongside a very special LIVE performance featuring R&B/Soul Singer-Songwriter Anitra Jay.

The novel, Meet Me at Lush is a blend of fictional events, mimicking real life situations; dealing with matters of the heart, success, diversity, adversity, the night life and last but not least... fashion.  

“It’s the perfect page turner for the trendsetting busy woman.  Many women will relate to the main characters, Rebecca Ellis and Tiffany Caldwell (the co-founders of Cover the Girls Boutique) on cascading levels of love and life,” says Newson.

The title, Meet Me at Lush stems from the name of a lounge that Rebecca, Tiffany and an array of other professionals frequent after work. On any given day, a Lush patron has the honor of networking with like-minded persons during their business "mix & mingle" sessions, relish in LIVE performances by indie artists, have the ability to stop in for their weekly dose of spoken word, attend well-advertised charitable events at Lush and anything in between depending upon the day of the week.                                     

However, the crowd is definitely in for a treat when Nashville-based R&B/Soul Singer-Songwriter Anitra Jay who started out in Charlotte holds a public listening party for the first time at Lush.

Although the book is fictional, Newson draws from elements of reality that we individually may view as possible or even plausible in everyday life.

During the launch celebration, the ever so talented Anitra Jay who is a real live character guest in the novel, Meet Me at Lush will grace the audience with her musical performance just as she did for the Listening Party at Lush.
