Anyone going to RT?

Hey guys!

So, I'm going to my first book convention! I've always wanted to go to a convention and threatened many, many times to head to SCBWI in NY, but this time I have no excuse.

RT is right around the corner, literally (I can drive there!) and though I've got no actual book in my paws to sign, I'm still going. (I don't think my ARC counts, though I may wave it around, all excited-like)

I'm pretty excited to meet up with several other debut authors from the Lucky 13s, as well as support members from the League of Extraordinary Writers.

I'll be there on Saturday, May 4th for Teen Day AND at the FAN-tastic Day Party as an author (officially from 6:30-7PM, though I'll likely hang out for longer). Ask me nicely, and I'd be happy to hand out some CONTROL swag!

I'll be wearing a Lucky13s button and will be the short, Asian gal with the deer-in-the-headlights expression. Yep. 

Anyone of my blog friends going to RT? I'd love to see you!

Wave that ARC! I can't wait to read it, so everyone else should suffer with me. ;)
Have a great time, Lydia.

Fun! And yes, of course, take your ARC (perhaps several). Sign them. Give them away. There's something really, really cool about reading an ARC. Like I have some special privilege to the inside. :-)

Yes. Have fun!

Hugs and chocolate,

Ah, if I only still lived in St. Louis, I'd see you there! This sounds wonderful, ENJOY! (I hope you'll have a viz-aid of the cover, too, because it is gorgeous and will get great attention.)

That is a little too far away from Detroit for me. What do they actually do at a book lovers convention?

Natalie Aguirre said...

Wish I could go but it's too far from Ann Arbor. I'd love to go to something like that or BEA. Have fun going as an author. How awesome!

Have a wonderful time! I'll be at the NE-SCBWI this weekend, which is just a drive for me too.

I don't live close enough, but have an awesome time. Just relax and enjoy!

And don't forget to post pix for the rest of us.

Have a great time--I'm a big fan of my Control swag (seriously, the necklace I won from you is my new favorite. I wear it all the time!) I can't wait till I can read the book to go along with it!

Enjoy your first conference Lydia. Don't undersell yourself! I went to my first conference a couple of months ago and loved meeting so many romance authors in one place!

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds like fun! I'd love to go to a convention one day too! :)

Kelly Polark said...

I've seen a lot of RT TWitter posts and I was wondering exactly what it was. Sounds like a cool event!
