Starting a Lady Jane’s Salon® of your own

Lady Jane’s Salon® is about sharing not only great romance fiction but also the promise of a Real Life Happily Ever After with others in our community who have been less fortunate. Net monies from admissions support an end-of-year donation to an appropriate 501c(3) charity.


The Lady Jane’s Salon® name and logo are protected by U.S. Trademark. All materials are proprietary and reproduced with our permission only. To differentiate your satellite from the original Lady Jane’s Salon® in NYC, we require you to designate–on all websites, social networking sites, press releases, promotional print and/or digital marketing materials etc–your geographic location as part of your group’s title e.g., Lady Jane’s Salon Naperville, Lady Jane’s Salon RDU and so forth.

As we enter our eighth awesome year in New York City, our Lady Jane’s Salon® family continues to grow–and flourish–sharing the love of romance fiction and helping to bring real-life Happily Ever After beginnings across these United States, from East to West coast, Midwest to South! Presently we have satellite Salon groups in the following U.S. cities/regions: Naperville, IL; Raleigh-Durham; NC; Orange County, CA; Lancaster, PA; Philadelphia, PA and Southern Tier, NY.

Interested in launching a Lady Jane’s Salon® Satellite in your hometown? Due to popular demand, the Salon’s original co-founders have compiled the following Fast Facts and Easy Guidelines:

By signing on to host a Lady Jane’s Salon® Satellite, we ask that you agree to:

1. Share the love! Every Lady Jane’s Salon® charges an admission fee of $5 OR one gently used romance novel. Admission dollars cover Salon operating costs e.g., web administration, server gratuities for the host venue, advertising, and printing. Award net monies to a charitable recipient of your choice. Since we launched the original Lady Jane’s Salon® in NYC in February 2009, we have supported Win (formerly Women in Need).  Distribute all donated books to a charity 501c(3). Town libraries are okay; your personal library is not.

Note: we find it easiest to make one annual donation rather than monthly but those administrative particulars are left up to you.

2. Welcome guest authors! From big names to newbies, all published authors are welcome so long as their works are romance fiction or have strong romantic elements. We’re fortunate in NYC to have access to many great published authors who either live in the Tri-State area or are visiting the city. That said, our satellite salons have made clever use of social media and other Internet communication tools to bring in guest authors e.g., Skype and Twitter and Facebook live chats. If a door seems closed, search instead for an open window. 🙂

3. Join us on the blog! Send us your post-salon photos etc. and we’ll be happy to post them as well as a link to your satellite salon website from our site at as well as on Facebook.

4.Respect the name — see the above U.S. trademark stipulation.
