Virginia Wilde

All of my works are inspired by romance; so every story reads well in intimate settings where friends can share, laugh, and revel in the warmth of each other’s company.

Hearing the words of the story in its author’s voice can enhance the the tale; then later, you can read the story again, fusing memories with imagination to give every word another dimension of meeting. It’ll be a story that keeps giving!

I invite you to contact me to arrange a private reading in New York NY, or see my schedule to connect in other destinations.

Hourly Engagements

The ideal engagement for a private reading of my short stories, essays, and published articles. We can adjust the number of excerpts we cover to your schedule.

Requested honorarium is $1600 for up to two hours and $2500 for up to four hours

Nightly Engagements

A nightly engagement would allow for a relaxed cover-to-cover reading of one of my novels, to include lively discussion on the story lines. It also allows traveling flexibility should you want to take our private reading on the road

Requested honorarium is $4,500 for each evening till morning span (8 - 10 hours)


Scheduling an engagement starts with an introduction. It doesn’t need to be too elaborate (writing novels is my job)! I’ll ask you whatever questions I have to put it all together. You can use the form or email me. You can also follow me on social media!
