I don't know about you, but I'm getting excited for the RT Booklovers Convention. I'm already on the road, visiting family in Chicago. On Tuesday I'll be flying to Kansas City for five days of whirlwind fun. Here's a rundown of the events I'll be attending. If you're coming to the convention, I hope to see you!
Thursday, May 4 at 1:30 – The Bride Wore Two-Ply. I'll be one of several Avon authors leading teams of readers in the creation of a wedding dress out of … imagine this … toilet paper. Though I'd never heard of this before, apparently many people have tried it and come up with some fabulous gowns. If you like craftsy activities, or if you just want to laugh hysterically, please join us!
To make it even crazier, Avon will be live-streaming the fun at http://bit.ly/LHKoGR
Friday, May 5 at 8:30 – Fountain City Jazz Mixer. I’m one of the hostesses of this fabulous 20’s themed breakfast. We’ll enjoy champagne fountains, hot jazz, flapper costumes (mine has peacock feathers), games and prizes … and hopefully your company! No costume required.
Friday, May 5 at 11:15 – I’ll be presenting a workshop on Hot Hot Heroes: Creating the Contemporary Heartthrob along with Candis Terry and Lizbeth Selvig. What makes a drool-worthy hero? We want your feedback.
Friday, May 5 at 6:15 – Avon’s Red Slipper Lounge. I, along with many other Avon authors, will be signing and giving away books.
Saturday, May 6 from 11 am to 2 pm – Giant Book Fair. This is one of the biggest romance novel book signings in the country. Many romance superstars will be there – I’m looking forward to being a fangirl as well as a signer.
Saturday, May 6 from 6:30 to 7:30 - FANtastic Day Party - Tons of authors will be chatting and mingling with readers. This is a new event for me, so I do hope you'll drop by.
Promo Alley - I'll be stocking my table with some special surprise goodies, so be sure to look for my name!
When I’m not at these events, I’ll be milling around the bar or the coffee shop. If you’re attending the conference, I hope you'll say hi. It’s always a blast.
