The RT Booklovers Convention is next week in Dallas. I hope to see those of you who are attending! Even if you aren’t going, there are a couple of things you can do from home to participate as well.
First, one of my friends thinks I should post all of my costume changes on social media. There will be a lot of them. We’ll see if I can do it!
Second: my schedule.
5:30–8:00pm: Cinema Craptastique
I’m co-hosting this annual event where we get comfy in our PJs, eat junk food, and make fun of a silly movie. Join me, Damon Suede, Tere Michaels, Amy Lane, and Laura Kaye to kick off the conference in style.
*YOU CAN PLAY AT HOME, TOO! We’re watching Legend of Hercules with one Kellan Lutz (who I only recently realized is not the same person as Taylor Kitsch… sorry, bro). It’s available on Netflix DVD and maybe Amazon Instant Video. You can follow along at the hashtag #RTCC or by watching the Tweetwall at rtcc.tweetwall.com, which aggregates all related tweets and also will give clear PAUSE/PLAY notices. (At the live even, we’ll be stopping to give away prizes and things.) We’d be beside ourselves if the hashtag trended, so please join us, no matter where you are.
*ALSO I’ll do an ebook giveaway for someone at home. Keep an eye on my twitter account (@katemcmwriter) during the event. If you tweet @ me with the hashtags #rtcc and #rainbowleague you’ll be entered to win a book from my backlist.
5:15–6:45pm Kensington’s Sweet Heat party
Come by to see me! There will be snacks, treats, and free books for all, plus a bunch of really awesome authors to come meet. I’ll be signing cover flats for my upcoming Kensington title, Such a Dance.
11:15am–12:15pm LGBTQ Author Extravaganza with Dreamspinner Press
Join a bunch of Dreamspinner authors for games and giveaways. Ariel Trachna will be our MC.
1:30-2:30pm Wheel of Romance
This will be THE event of RT, I think. I’m giving away a New York-themed gift basket, and a bunch of my favorite authors are hosting this game show. I plan to wear sequins.
11am–2pm Giant Book Fair
*OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
I’m signing at the Giant Book Fair. I’ll have paperbacks of The Silence of the Stars, When the Planets Align, and The Windup.
6–7:45pm FAN-Tastic Day Party
Hosted by Dreamspinner Press, so I’ll be floating around talking to people and possibly also handing out swag, signing books, etc. There will be more prize-winning opportunities and lots of your favorite authors.
Then I’m flying home Sunday night. I’m sure I’ll be wiped out by then!
Anyway, I’m really looking forward to it. I hope those of you who are going will drop by and say hi at one of my events.
