What's Better Than a Booklovers Convention?

I made it home from England a week ago and now I'm packing up again. Time to head off to Kansas City for the RT Booklovers Convention! I attended this con last year and absolutely loved all of the interaction with authors, bloggers, readers, agents, publishers, etc. It truly is a convention of book lovers - my favorite kind of people. I can't wait to see some of you again and to finally meet many others in person!

I'll be signing at the EXPO on Thursday, 4-6 p.m. If you're in the area, I hope you can make it! I'd love to see you. There are also some exciting events open to the public on Saturday, including another huge signing, Teen Day and FANtastic Day. An awesome chance for you to meet authors, bloggers and other reviewers. I'll be meeting, mingling and signing at the FAN-Tastic Day party Saturday evening.

If you can't make the EXPO, RT and AllRomance have a special going on for everyone at home, too, no matter where you live! Check this out for how you can participate from your armchair.

I'd hoped to have some pics for you today from the UK Tour, but it's taking forever to download them all. As in over 1,400 of them!!! So I will get those posted when I return from Kansas City next week. There are several already posted over on the Facebook page, though. Also, watch FB for photos from RT - we'll try to get some up while we're there.

Have a fabulous week! I know I will, surrounded by book lovers.

P.S. Don't forget to get your final entries in for The Space Between Release Tour giveaway. Tomorrow night (4/30) is the last day to enter.

If you're in England, I hope you'll come to one of the signings so we can meet in person. I have an extra suitcase full of swag and we'll have some books. However, book supplies are limited, so you may want to order yours from Amazon UK ahead of time and bring it with you.

TSB Blog Tour Update

Have you read The Space Between yet? If not, why not? If so, hope you liked it! I can't believe it's been nearly two weeks already since it started hitting the digital bookshelves. The paperback has been available on Amazon since the official release date, April 5. And we are well into the blog tour.

Have you been following along? Many of the tour stops are offering giveaways. Of course, we also have the BIG ONE throughout the tour - you could win a $200 gift card (enough to buy a new ereader) or an amazing swag bag full of goodies. Along the way, read all of the fabulous reviews coming in, interviews with me and the characters (including one with the pets), and "Between the Lines" posts, where you learn more about the story, writing it and the characters. Lots of cool stuff going on and fabulous prizes to be won.

Here's the link to the main tour page. Go jump in and be sure to enter the giveaways and to comment. Blog hosts love to read visitors' comments. Good luck!

My marketer made me say that last part. *wink*
