This was my third RT - first one was in Dallas back in 2015, then last year in Las Vegas and now this. And I have to admit, this one was kind of my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED going to Vegas last year, but my hubby was with me and we did more stuff on our own than at the convention so I almost don't even feel I was really at RT. But this year? Oh my goodness, what a time!
Let me start by saying that I go to these events in two modes - a reader and a writer. I totally fangirl when I get to meet some of my favorite authors! And this year was no different. I got to meet actress Meg Tilly who now writes romance as Sara Flynn! I gasped, I shook hands with her and then yammered on about being a fan of the movie "The Big Chill" and then made sure that I said hello to her every single time I saw her. Lol! She may or may not have been ready to call security...
I spoke on a panel about the importance of book clubs/street teams, I was a Pop Up author and was one of the hosts of a fantastic reader event called Sweet, Sassy Spicy and you'll see from the group author picture, we had some great Sourcebooks authors in the lineup! I met some amazing readers at that event who just blew me away with their enthusiasm and kindness and I would have spent the entire day with them if I could!
