RT Extravaganza

Just returned from the RT Booklovers Convention in Kansas City and what fun. Plus, it snowed! Yep, in May, we had a snowstorm. Took pictures for my kids which they thoroughly enjoyed. As Floridians, snow is thrilling. Unfortunately, my assistant Tiffany had to drive home through it. šŸ˜¦

RT Convention

Isn’t she great? She drove two hours to help me with the Thursday book signing and I couldn’t have done it without her. Much to everyone’s delight, she passed out cornbread recipeĀ cards and steered them straight to my table. WTG, Tiffany!

We sold some books, made some new friends and look forward to attending again next year ~ in New Orleans! I also had the pleasure of meeting my fellow CentralĀ Florida Romance Writers Lori Sjoberg and Roxanne St. Claire. Always nice to see friendly faces. Ran into Brenda Novak as well and if you’re not familiar with her annual online auction for juvenile diabetes, it’s a must see, with a ton of great items for readers, writers — everyone!

Reader conventions are so much fun, they’re definitely my new focus. Do you know of any great ones?Ā 

Until then, must get back to writing. After hearing the amazing success stories from my fellow indie authors – my juices are energized!

    I almost posted on FB to see how many of my writer friends would be here — KC is my hometown — and now I wish I had. I’m glad you had a great time! (You should’ve taken the snow back to FL with you. šŸ˜‰ )

    Glad you had fun, Dianne, and that the convention was a success. I haven’t tried RT yet, but maybe next year…

  3. New Orleans would be a good time. šŸ™‚

  4. RT is definitely a great convention. Really enjoyed it and will definitely head out next year. Hope to see you all!
