Romantic Times….Here I Come!
Tomorrow morning bright and early (less than 24 hours from now!) I’ll be in the air, on my way to Chicago for my very first taste of the Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention! I’m really excited because…because how can you NOT be excited!?
It’s going to be a convention filled with readers AND writers and…books!
This convention has a stronger focus on fans, while RWA is more industry. And cocktails and gabbing. This conference will be about books! And loving them! And…industry and cocktails and gabbing.
I’m a social creature, so these kinds of things are SO exciting for me! I CANNOT WAIT to meet my friends, my favorite authors, my friends who are also my favorite authors and…of course…my READERS!! Because I love my readers. Like Savage Garden, I knew I loved you before I met you. (Ouch. 90s flashback. Hurt myself)
IF you are in the Chicago area, or are insane and up for a road trip, you need to know: Saturday, April 14th, there is a GIANT book fair!! And so many amazing authors will be there signing. (Nalini Singh, anyone?) And quite a few Presents authors: Jennie Lucas, Caitlin Crews, Lynn Raye Harris, Janette Kenny. Presents Extra authors Kimberly Lang and Mira Lyn Kelly! It’s open to the public and is from 11am to 2pm. So come and see us!!
Also, if you’re going to be at conference: Do not be shy! Come and say hi to me. I will have Romance Trading Cards and…while supplies last…I will have books. Some of them will be UK releases that you DO NOT HAVE. So really, come and find me.
I will be tweeting (Sporadically) during RT using the #RT12 hashtag, so you can follow the debauchery there. (it will only be mild debauchery! Swears!)
And I have packed way too many shoes. WAAAAY too many. And dresses. I COULD NOT HELP MYSELF.
I will have pictures when I get back, and tales. Such tales.
In the meantime, I’m running around like the proverbial beheaded chicken getting everything ready. Oh, and I’m sending off the revised MS of Mr. Personality today. V pleased I made my self-imposed deadline and that I will NOT be under the gun while gone!
In the mean time…be good. 😉
