Edited to add: I’ve been contacted by a reader, Laurie, who has a ticket to today’s Boas&Tiaras event, but can’t attend. She’s given it to me in hopes that I can find someone who might be willing to use it, so if anyone out there has a tiara ready, contact me via Twitter: www.twitter.com/VickiPettersson and it’s yours. First person to speak up, wins. (Cause I’m oh-so-crafty like that. Thank you, Laurie!)
There are a ton of things I’m looking forward to about this event, but none more than getting some real face time with readers, and not just at the booksigning. This is an intimate event, with seven readers and one author at each table for tea time. (I know a couple of my Facebook readers are coming and I can’t wait to meet them in person.)
Each attendee will get a fantastic swag bag to take home, a chance to bid on raffle baskets (the proceeds of which go to Plano Family Literacy), tea, and a chance to get their keeper books signed. Barnes&Noble will be on site all day.
If you’re wondering what Boas & Tiaras is all about, or want to attend by remote, you can check out the livestream of the event. The live viewing includes an 11 am CT live panel moderated by Candace Havens where you can “meet” Rachel Gibson, Julia Quinn, Nalini Singh, Dianna Love, Lori Wilde, Rachel Caine and Vicki Lewis Thompson. Then I’ll be broadcasting satellite interviews at 1 pm CT with each author after that.
Tell me this doesn’t sound like too much fun?
Oh, and if you’re watching the livestream, know that you can purchase books that way for us to sign for you… and shipping is FREE!
Okay, I’m off to don my boa and have some tea. There are 364 other days for all of us authors to stay at home and scribble in our sweats … but today we’re going glam.
