What’s that, you ask? I’m referring to the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention, recently held in Chicago. Imagine a thousand readers, authors, reviewers, bloggers, librarians, booksellers, agents, and editors–all converging to celebrate what we love most: books!
What made this convention really special was the fact that I attended as a published author. <big, cheesy grin> And since one of my publishers, Sourcebooks, is headquartered in Chicago, they had a stellar presence at the convention. They even put together an office tour for their authors and hosted an author/librarian/bookseller cocktail party, where I got to meet some of the awesome folks who’ll be selling my books!
I didn’t take nearly enough photos, but here are a few highlights:
See? Doesn’t that look like a blast? So what if I didn’t sleep more than three consecutive hours all week? As one of my characters says in Sultry with a Twist–which is now available for pre-order…just sayin’– “I’ll have plenty of time to sleep when I’m dead.”
