This was my first Romantic Times Convention and one phase kept repeating itself from day 1 until the last day, Oh My God! That pretty much sums it up. This wasn’t my first writers convention but it certainly is the most memorable.
The workshops, of course, were fantastic but what makes this stand out are the people. Lots and lots of people from the readers to the cover models, the contestants from the Mr. Romance Competition and my personal favorite the cover model for my latest book CHANCES ARE, Jimmy Thomas. All I can say is OMG. These guys were smoking. But every last one was also super sweet, like you can sit down with them and have an actual conversation. Drooling all the while of course, but still able to have a conversation.
The next fun thing was meeting some of my favorite authors. I’ve met so many that have inspired me and whose writing I truly enjoy. But I was most excited to meet Bridget Midway. I’ve known Bridget online now for about 3 years and she’s given me great advice so I was really excited to finally met her in person.
Oh and the parties were awesome too. You haven’t been to a Fairy Ball until you’ve been to one at RT, same for a Vampire Ball. We authors know how to party. So if anyone ever has a chance to attend an RT Con do it. Check out my pictures on my website lavernethompson.com and facebook.com/isisindc.
