Ingenioustravel.comWhat a week in New Orleans at the Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention where fans had the opportunity to interact with over 700 of their favorite authors!

If you’re a book lover, aspiring author or published author, this was the place to be. The conference offered over 400 panels, workshops, and parties. If you’re an aspiring author, you may have sat in on a CRAFT panel such as Writing with a Partner or A Novel in 30 Days or Less. For READERs, you had our pick, no matter what your favorite sub-genre, from The Annual Shooting Stars Gala and Reader Party, Hats and Tats, Bad Boy Bingo, and many others

My two favorite panels were the Urban Fantasy – Legwork of the Damned (absolutely lover Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles) and Author Chat: Paranormal & Urban Fantasy with P.C Cast, Kresley Cole, Kim Harrison, and Larissa Ione. These women were fabulous and their books are pretty awesome, too! I was a total fan girl at these events. Here’s a clip from their session:


Overall, there were too many favorite parts to name. It was wonderful seeing all my author friends as well as making new connections. Some of the best conversations took place in the hotel’s bar.

RT will be invading Dallas for next year’s convention. Hope they’re ready for everyone!
