Where You Can Find Me at the RT Booklover's Convention!

RT is right around the corner! This will be my first year attending and I'm so excited! I get to be there not only as myself, but I get to promote my new U.S. Marshals series written as Mandy Baxter as well! If you're attending RT this year, I'd love to meet you! Like most attendees, I'll more than likely be hanging out at the bar being socially awkward but I'm also participating in a couple of cool events while I'm down there.

First up: Kensington's Karmic Carnival

Event Date:
Thursday, May 15, 2014 - 5:15 pm to 6:15 pm

There will be over fifty amazing authors there and it's going to be a great time! You can find more information about the event, including a detailed description here.

Next up: The RT Pub Crawl

Event Date:
Thursday, May 15, 2014 - 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

I'll be hosting at the Bourbon Cowboy with a group of FABULOUS authors (AKA The Keeper Shelf Krewe). It includes authors Kristen Callihan, Amanda Carlson, Kresley Cole, Louisa Edwards (aka Lily Everett), Kristen Painter, Roxanne St. Claire, and Julie Ann Walker.

Stop by for some fun swag, great company, and tons of fun! You can find out more about the Pub Crawl here, and more about Keeper Shelf Krewe here.

Finally: The Giant Book Fair

Event Date:
Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 11:00 am to 2:00 pm

I'll be signing at the book fair and I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello! There are so many authors at this event, it's mind boggling! You can find a list of all of the participants here.

Of course, I'll be wandering the hotel, attending panels, and hanging out. I'll have bookmarks, cover flats, and cool buttons. But my favorite bit of swag are the 20 copies of ONE NIGHT MORE that I'm bringing! I'll be giving out copies throughout the convention. Be sure to follow my Mandy Baxter Twitter account for details on how you can get your hands on a copy months before you can buy it. If you can't attend the convention, don't worry. I've got you covered! I'm giving away an ARC of ONE NIGHT MORE plus a swag pack that includes everything I'll have at the con! You can enter below and I'll pick a winner at the end of the month!

Now, it's time to get packing! ;-)

I'm so antsy for May! I feel like I've waited forever to get the next installment of the Shaede Assassin written and now that it's finally done, I can say that I'm super happy with not just the story, but Darian's character arc as well. She's grown so much since the first book and that's really what I wanted for her. The book is set to release on May 20th, but since I'm impatient, I posted the first THREE chapters of the book on my website. Hope you enjoy!
