Quick update on Runaway Bride: I just uploaded Runaway Bride to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords this afternoon. I will email everyone on the “email contact list” when the book is live on all three sites. (I’ll be checking them every couple hours to see if they’re up.) After I send out the email, I will post the links over here.
Now for today’s post. 😀
I am going to the RT Booklovers Convention from May 1 – 5 in Kansas City, Missouri.
1. I was wondering if any of you will be there.
If so, let me know you’ll be there and tell me which of my books you love most so I can give you a signed paperback copy. (I am going to order a couple of books soon and would like to know which ones to bring with me. I’m not going to bring any to sell. They’re just going to be ones to give to people who enjoy my work, so it helps me to know if there are any specific copies I should bring with me.)
2. Rose Gordon will be there. Anyone want to have dinner with us?
This will be the first time I’ll meet her in person. We are planning on meeting for dinner and would like to invite those of you who’d be interested in dining with us. I’ll get more details on this later. So far, it sounds like it’ll be Wednesday night, but there’s an anniversary ball at some point during the convention, and I’m too lazy to do a search to see which night the ball is. (My kids just got home from school and it’s time to get dinner ready and for some reason. This is the slowest part of the day for me, probably because I hate to cook.)
Hmmm. I may have to look into this 🙂 It’s only a couple hours away from me!
I’d love to meet you! I’m near Omaha so it’s not too far from Kansas City. Let me know if you can make it. 😀
I really hate not getting to meet you and Rose. I’m going to the RNC convention in Vegas, so I can’t afford another one. Plus, I only have so many vacation days. Maybe some day I’ll get to meet y’all. 🙂
I’d love to meet you. I had to choose between RT and the RNC conventions. I picked this one because I have a friend who’ll drive me to Kansas City. Do you know if RNC will be in Vegas next year?
My guess is that it will be in Vegas again, but who knows. I’m sure Jimmy will continue to do RNC as long as it’s profitable, but I don’t know if he will move the venue.
They switch the RT Convention around, but they keep other conventions I’ve been to in the same place. I guess it depends on the person/people hosting it. 😀
Hi. I am going to be at the conference on Saturday the 4th and would love to meet you. I love all of your books, but Falling in Love With Her Husband was the first one I read and remains my favorite. I would love to get a copy–will you be at the big book fair Saturday morning?
That’s great, Sarah! I’d be very happy to give you a signed copy of Falling In Love With Her Husband. That’s the book that got me started on writing romances, so I have a soft spot for it. 😀 I haven’t been to an RT conference before so I’m not sure how the layout of the thing will be. I do plan to be at the book fair. I know there are two separate book things (forgive me, I don’t remember the exact terms they use for the different two), but the one you’re going to, will it be the one where authors will sell ebooks or the paperbacks? I think they divided it up between paperbacks (more traditional publishing) and ebooks (more on the indie side). Although, they might be selling ebooks and paperbacks in the traditional publishing side. If I remember right, the indie authors are only doing ebooks. (I’m not selling any books there, so I didn’t pay much attention when I was filling out the form.)
Anyway, we should discuss a time and an easy place to meet. Do you know what time the book fair is in the morning? I was thinking we could meet by the entrance of the book fair or somewhere easy to spot. I wish I knew the layout of the place. But worse comes to worse, I can always call you from my cell and we could find a spot to meet that way. 😀
Yay! I’m so excited! I have also never been to RT, so I’m not positive how they work everything, but I know the thing I’m signed up for is called the Giant Book Fair in Exhibit hall A on Saturday from 11-2. I only have a one day pass, although I’m getting to town sometime late on Friday night. (it’s a 4-5 hr drive for me, leaving after work). If you are going earlier in the week maybe you could kind of scope it out and let me know where you think a good place would be? I’d be happy to email you my # if that would be easier for you. Just let me know– like I said I’m so excited. I love Ann and Todd, but have always wondered about Kent so I’m really looking forward to both of his stories, especially because I like the Larsons so much as well.
I’ll be coming in Tuesday night, so scoping out the place won’t be a problem. Then I’ll know where things are at. 😀 Can I email you at the email you use to sign in here at WordPress?
Yes you can email me. Do you have my address or do I need to give it to you? I’m logged on through Facebook which I really don’t know how to use–my friends set me up with it. I’m afraid my Internet savvy doesn’t extend past “purschase ebook” or “submit order”. Just let me know, and if not, I can give it to you here.
I think I can email you. I’ll test an email and see if it goes through. When I’m in my dashboard on this blog, I can see people’s email address that they use to post comments here. I am hesitate to give out my email publicly on a blog because I have been spammed and harassed in the past, so I do everything I can to protect the email addresses of people who comment on this blog or sign up for my email list or enter giveaways, etc. There are also a couple of authors out there who like to take down email addresses for their lists when they see someone’s email address. I hate this practice and it’s rare, but I’ve learned I can’t be too careful when it comes to hiding email addresses on this blog. It’s why I love the forms I can post when I do giveaways. 😀 It allows people to enter without risking their privacy.
I know that has nothing to really do with what we’re talking about, but I wanted to explain why I don’t come right out and ask for your email or post up mine in this thread. 😀 I’ll try emailing you without sending a Facebook message first. (Your Facebook profile link is available on my dashboard.) The only trouble with Facebook is that I sometimes don’t get notified of messages or comments even though I asked to be notified. I think it’s a glitch in the system. Off to email and see if it works. 😀
Hi. You can absolutely email me–I’m logged in through Facebook so I don’t know if you are able to get that email. If not, let me know and I can give it to you. I’m also signed up for new post notifications through my email if that helps.
