I’m preparing for the RT Booklover’s Convention in Los Angeles from April 6-10 and this may be the biggest suitcase I have ever packed.
As a long time traveler, having to pack a checked bag makes me cringe, but there was no way around it for the convention. I mean, how else was I going to get my wardrobe, which included a pair of glittery faery wings, to Los Angeles?
I’m very excited because this is my first time going to RT. I’m speaking on three panels and also have two appearances at Club RT. This will also be the first big unveiling of the Romance Trading Cards and I can’t wait to collect them from all the authors there. I’ll be carrying buttons to distribute to the RTCers so readers will be able to find them.
In the meantime, OperationAuction is currently underway to raise money for book blogger Fatin whose husband was tragically killed. Five sets of Romance Trading Cards from over 60 authors are being auctioned over the week. All proceeds will go to Fatin and her family.
If you haven’t heard, Romancelandia is abuzz making romance trading cards in preparation for the the RT Booklovers Convention in Los Angeles.
Here’s my editions which I’ll be toting to the convention. I have a collectible set of four from Butterfly Swords and The Taming of Mei Lin. For Mei Lin & Shen Leung, I reveal a bit of secret history not available in the Undone short story. Enjoy!
The samples below show the front with the cover and the two versions of the back for each story. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to stay for the booksigning so I’ll be giving these away during my two CLUB RT spots.
THE TAMING OF MEI LIN
If you’re headed to either RT or RWA or any conferences in between, look for this symbol to find participating authors.
The full list of participants and more sample cards can be found at http://www.romancetradingcards.com. I can’t wait for the fun to begin!
Of course, newsletter subscribers will always get first dibs. I’ll be giving details about how to get these cards in the March edition of the newsletter which is out Tuesday. Sign up here.
