Last week was the RT Booklovers Convention, held in Kansas City, MO. It was a very fun conference, and it was so fun to meet up with authors, bloggers, and industry friends. Here are a few things I learned:
10: I’m really jealous of Jaci Burton’s genius marketing idea (our room keys!)
9: But, our marketing department came up with some VERY cute stuff, too (our table in Club RT)
8: Hotel elevators/escalators/floor plans never cease to be far too confusing.
7: Visiting a city that is known for its BBQ is really tough when you’re allergic to tomatoes.
6: Pomegranate mimosas match Susanna Kearsley’s The Firebird perfectly!
5: I really need to suck it up and start wearing my cute shoes, not just comfortable shoes. ;-)
4: Our authors are adorable!
|Grace Burrowes and her signing neighbor, Monica Burns|
|Leanna Renee Hieber|
3: EL James (yes, that EL James) really knows how to make an impact! And she doesn’t even have a new book out :-/ (PS—if anyone sees Sourcebooks Editor Leah Hultenschmidt anytime soon, please ask her to tell you her EL James story.)
2: My fiancé’s face is always hilarious after I show him the amount of pens I pick up (at least 15… it’s a problem).
1: In the words of our very own Deb Werksman (which, mind you, she said in front of the entire room at our Sourcebooks Spotlight): “We f@$%&ing ROCK!”
Did you attend the RT conference? If so, what were some of your favorite memories? If you didn’t, what did you do while we were all away?
