This year at RT, I will be presenting two sessions and helping out with a third. Along with Angela James and Jane Litte, I’m presenting a session on digital reading on Friday 30 April at 11:15am. We are going to have a veritable smorgasbord, dare I say, a cornucopia of digital reading devices for you to fondle and ask questions about. Jane, Angie and I will talk a bit about the differences and the challenges to switching to digital reading, and there will be a digital reading device to win for those who attend courtesy of AllRomanceeBooks.com and OmniLit.com.
Before that, at 10am, Jane and I will host a live Save the Contemporary session with Louisa Edwards and Julie James. We will be talking about what makes contemporary romance work, what readers are looking for, and what books theses contemporary authors have coming up next for us to enjoy. So if you like contemporary romance as much as we do, come on over.
Plus, for total fun and silliness, I am calling a bingo game. Yes. Bad Boy Bingo, baby. Thursday the 29th of April at 130pm, I will be calling a bingo game with Alyssa Day, Victoria Dahl, and Cindy Holby aka Colby Hodge- only from what I hear, this will not be like any bingo game you ever saw. For one thing, the prizes will rock. And for another, merely getting bingo might not guarantee the prize. It’s right after lunch so you can relax and play games with excellent rewards for joining in.
The RT website launch party promises to be supremely fun, too, especially because Morgan Doremus, RT web diva, is among the best people I know. That’s on Thursday night at 6pm- worth attending just to meet Morgan and to celebrate the kicking new RT website. Have you seen it? It is spiffy.
What are you looking forward to at RT this year? What sessions will you absolutely not miss? And please, got food or restaurant Recommendations? See yinz in Ahia where my Pixberg accint is shur ta reappear n’at.
IPad substitutions of humor: “digital easing” for “digital reading.” I wish it were easier for folks to try digital. Wishful thinking there, iPad.
Romance novels? Ha. Try “romance oboes.” yes. That makes total sense.
