Blogger Confession: Readers N Ritas 2014 Wrap-Up (Best One Yet)

I am super late on writing my convention wrap-ups for November! I almost skipped writing up a recap but honestly this was the best Readers N Ritas to date. The authors were awesome. The readers were even more awesome. The swag was plenty. The organizers were on their game (even with the snafu of the food truck ordeal). Overall I don’t think I could have had a better time if I tried!

Hi y’all and welcome to my Readers & Ritas Countdown Week 6: Missy Jane edition! I have asked Missy to stop by and tell us about her Readers & Ritas experiences. I have been to several of these conferences and look forward to them every year! Readers & Ritas starts FRIDAY!  I am so excited that it is finally here 🙂 When You’re Here, You’re Family   I haven’t been to a lot of conventions. My first Readers n’Ritas was in 2011, then I attended again in 2012. The first thing I noticed was how small and intimate the event is. That’s definitely a good thing. Rubbing elbows with New York Times bestsellers in the elevator is great, but then they forget your face as soon as you reach your floor. At an intimate convention like RnR you get to know not only the authors, but the readers and bloggers as well. Everyone has become like one big family that I look forward to seeing again and again. When I arrived at the hotel that first year I knew no one. It was my first con attendance as a published author and though I knew some people online, I had […]

Welcome to Readers & Ritas Countdown Week 3 Heather Long Edition!   Heather and I have a special friendship and she is one of my favorite people.  We met as fellow readers and she blossomed into a wonderful author.  I love when my friends follow their dreams and live their passions! First off, let me say thank you to Felicia for asking me to participate! She’s one of my favorite people so it was a real kick in the pants to get an invitation.  Readers & Ritas is one of my favorite conferences. The 2013 conference will by 4th one that I’ve attended and my second as a featured author. I thought I’d be a little random—okay well the truth is I’m always a little random, but here we go. What I Love About Readers & Ritas The readers – it’s a laid back conference and you get a lot of face time with readers. For me, that’s the best part of any conference. Authors spend a lot of time at their computers, and we’re always working on the next book. It is a solitary existence. When I go to a conference, I get to sit and chat with readers, about […]
