Recapping RT

By: Casey Crow

I had the privilege of attending the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention a few weeks ago. OMG I had the BEST time. What I liked so much about this conference as opposed to others was that tons of readers attend and the erotic genre is embraced there.

I was stressing because my plane arrived at 10:30 and my Pitch Perfect workshop was at 2:00, but I made it in plenty of time and actually had a big crowd sitting in on my panel! They had awesome editors and agents there that I got to pitch too and got plenty of full requests, but best of all my manuscript HUSTLER'S DREAM finaled in the American Idol contest! There were only 15 finalists and though I didn't win, I had one of the highest scores! Yay me! (Yeah, I'm shameless bragging - deal with it.)

Okay, I'll be honest and admit the contest deal wasn't THE most fun. Can you say hot male cover models? That aren't gay? (I think). And dancing with them and my new RT author friends till the wee hours of the morn?

Cover model, TV Host, Actor & all-around awesome guy Billy Freda

                                 Len Gunn, Charles Patrick, Scott Novay & Brooks Johnson .... *SIGH*

If you've never been - start saving up now for May 1-5, 2013 in Kansas City. I'll be there again!

I had a great time at RT when I went a few years ago. Glad you had fun (which is evident from the pictures;-)

I miss going to RT! Sounds like you had a blast...I'll have to try to attend next year.

Aren't those cover models such nice guys? Not bad to look at... :)

I would love to go to RT again. I went a couple of times and had a blast!

Are you going to Romanticon? I met Brooks there a couple of years ago. Really nice guy.
