RT Booklovers Convention 2013

I am so thrilled the massive RT Booklovers Convention (May 1-5, 2013) will be held in Kansas City, MO this year. That’s only a three-hour drive from home, and a lovely trip through the Missouri River Valley . . . not to mention a great chance to meet readers and tons of authors.

Here’s my current schedule for the conference:

Urban Fantasy: That Old Black Magic (Genre)
Friday, May 3, 2013 – 11:15am – 12:15pm

Moderator: Kat Richardson
Panelist(s): Ilona Andrews (Ilona and Gordon Andrews), Yasmine Galenorn, Jennifer Estep, Richard Kadrey, Chloe Neill
Location: Mezzanine Level
Room: Empire A

With great power comes great responsibility, and it takes a lot of work to create dynamic magic users who can light up the page. Join a group of authors who are experts in magic and the characters who wield it. Learn how to design a magic system, what to research, how to set limits and when to improvise.

Organizing and Outlining Your Soon-To-Be Bestselling Novel (Craft)
Friday, May 3, 2013 – 5:00pm – 6:00pm

Panelist(s): Chloe Neill, Nicole Peeler, Jaye Wells, Leigh Evans
Location: Mezzanine Level
Room: Van Horn C

Do you have plenty of “novel” ideas for a paranormal romance or urban fantasy manuscript, but no idea where to start? This workshop will examine multiple methods for organizing your thoughts and transforming your ideas into a novel-length manuscript, including plot boards, outlines, index cards and character sheets. Includes free downloadable content for workshop participants!

Book Fair
Saturday, May 4, 2013 – 11:00am – 2:00pm
Host(s): RT Book Reviews
Location: Mezzanine Level
Room: Exhibit Hall A

Meet more than 400 authors who will autograph books, posters and bookmarks. Bring your “keepers” and have them signed!


Who else will be attending?
