Today was the first full day at RT – the Romantic Times Convention. I had fun talking to authors that I met last year and to meeting new people – authors and readers – as we sat at tables, waited in line, or walked to our hotel. I came with Tina Susedik, my roomie from last year. We drove to Kansas City versus flying. This way, we’d have room to bring home all the goodies from the events and promo or swag tables.
Last year, Tina and I vowed that we would attend RT in 2013 as authors. What a year. Both of us accomplished our goal. With my eBook Gitana – Life Plan published at the end of March and with her eBook Riding for Love released today, we did it! We signed up for a promo spot, a section of a table to promote our eBooks. We tag teamed, having similar postcards. Mine said “Take Me” and hers said “Ride Me” with the backs having our book information. Many people commented on our cards, loving the concept.
During the day I attended the Welcome Party and went to four sessions on marketing. Tonight’s parties were Rose Gulch’s Saloon and Ellora’s Cave Bad Girls of Romance Disco Inferno. The male models of Ellora’s Cave danced on stage to classic 70’s music. Oh yeah……..not a bad sight!
I can’t wait for tomorrow’s events
