I’m on my way to Las Vegas for RT Booklovers Convention! This will be my second year and I plan (or at least I hope) to be a lot more relaxed and just have a great time in a community of fellow romance readers. By far my favorite thing about this event is getting to hang out in person with my fellow reviewers at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books – we’ve become close friends over the years and we treasure this chance to meet up in person.
If you are attending RT this year, be sure to check out my panels:
Smart Bitches Reader Recommendation Party
Thursday April 14, 11:15AM – 12:15PM
Join the ladies from Smart Bitches Trashy Books for a reader recommendation party! We want to hear what book has rocked your world and why. We’ll be sharing our recommendations and giving away some of our favorites, along with fun prizes, too. There will be snacks and room for your knitting and crafting. We want to hear from you! Please come ready to share recommendations of your own, especially if there’s a book you can’t stop talking about! We LOVE those! Authors: Please note – we think you are utterly rad but is this not a space in which to recommend your own book. Please do join us if you want to talk about what you’re reading. We all love romance!
Reviews: How to Get Them and What to Do With Them
Thursday, April 14, 4PM – 5PM
Join the ladies from Smart Bitches Trashy Books and Jay from Joyfully Jay for a candid discussion and Q&A about reviews. How does one pitch a book for review? What makes a blogger or reader choose the books they read and discuss? What are we looking for in our reading? What can authors do if they receive a positive review — or a negative one? We’ll take questions and share our various perspectives on the elusive subject of getting reviews.
Hope to see some of you in Vegas!
