Here is what to do!
Well, this is the week that so so many of us book lovers have all been waiting for. This week is RT week and everyone is talking about it in the book world. It is the one week that all book land gets together and talks books: bloggers, authors, reviewers, readers, industry specialist, models, anyone in the book world. This year RT is being held in Dallas, Texas and officially starts today and runs through Sunday. The BIG signing is of course on Saturday but just sitting in the bar of the hotel you are sure to run into everyone that you want or need to know.
With that all being said, and I have to tell you that I am going to this event on Friday and staying though the events on Sunday, so if you see me, come say “hi” and hug my neck, I am most excited about the authors that are not signing. Yes, you read that right. I am most excited about the authors not signing on Saturday. With a quick scan through the website, I found were all authors attending were listed and a few of my favorites are not signing on Saturday. With a quick personal message on facebook, I reached out and guess what, they were all willing to meet up and sign their names and hug my neck. HOW COOL IS THAT?? It just proves that this industry is so full of amazing, loving people. So I want you to be encouraged to say hello and introduce yourself. This is the one week that everyone that is in the hotel with you is there for the same reasons you are. We all fangirl over each other. This is the time to make new friends and see some old ones.
RT week is going to be a blast. I have been given 3 pieces of advice to survive that I want to pass along to you.
1) WEAR amazingly comfortable shoes
2) If you see anyone you think you might know, say hello and introduce yourself.
No shyness is allowed!!
3) Use the RT Guide App. It will help you plan on seeing everyone you want to see. YES… there is an app. I found it on my PLAY store under RT Booklovers Convention 2015.
So, what happens if you do not get to go…
There is always next year, which will be being held in LAS VEGAS and you have us. We will post pictures and show you all that we are doing or you can find a friend that is going and stalk them!!!
TEXAS HUGS and HAPPY READING!!!
