Alas, the vast majority of them don't know who the heck I am. Yet. (Hey, a girl can dream.) Still I can bask in their enthusiasm for books in general. *happy sigh*
Where, you may ask, will this miraculous gathering of Book Lovers be? Well, I can tell you that!
It's The RT Booklovers Convention (RT stands for Romantic Times), this year in Kansas City, MO, May 1-5. Yep, it's starting today. I'm just going for the weekend, though: Friday through Sunday.
The convention is sponsored by RT Book Reviews, a most excellent magazine and online book review site (website). And I'm not just saying that because they were kind to me. Though it doesn't hurt. (Shamelessly promotional link to great "Top Pick" review of In a Fix here. Um, sorry. Apparently authors are supposed to do stuff like that.)
Anyway, I'll be signing books and giving away bookmarks at the Giant Book Fair from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, and mingling with readers and other authors at the FAN-tastic Day Party from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (or maybe a little longer).
Other times I will most likely be found at the bar, where I have been assured by past attendees "all the good stuff happens."
If you're anywhere near KC then, I'd sure love to meet you!
Oh, wait...it's Hump Day, isn't it? I need a camel tie-in. Let's see...camel. Camel, camel, camel...
Okay, got one.
Sadly, I will not be traveling by camel caravan.

The airplane will probably get me to KC faster, but not with nearly the same style.
So, what's the weirdest form of transportation you've ever used?
