I have returned, exhausted but unscathed, from the 2016 Romantic Times Booklovers Convention. This year, RT was held at the Rio in Las Vegas, and I went and spent five incredible days hanging around with romance writers and superfans, enjoying the Vegas weather, and having an all-around crazy fun time.
Among the highlights of my trip were getting to attend panels with such amazing authors as Victoria Dahl, Alisha Rai, Sabrina Jeffries, Suzanne Enoch, and more, meeting the cover models who appear on the cover of HAVEN'S FLAME, attending the evening events, getting tons of free books signed by the authors I love, and getting to learn about different publishers. I pitched a book to a publisher I admire a lot, and they want to read it, so fingers crossed!
Also, I was one of twenty western historical romance authors who participated in the Pioneer Hearts Hoedown. I got to meet a ton of readers and handed out lots of my swag, and had a great time meeting (in person!) ladies I've been chatting with on Facebook for months. :)
Now home in the aftermath, my TBR pile is insane. It was big before I left, but all the books in the picture above are now home with me. :):) Next year's RT is in Atlanta, and I can't wait!
