Hey guys! ... For the first time ever, I am going to attend the 28th Annual RT Booklovers Convention in Los Angeles, California!!! And this happens to be my first time going to Cali ... EVER! ***Throwing confetti*** For those of you who are RT Convention virgins" - such as myself - here is a summary about what goes on at this booklover sindig:

What sets the RT BOOK LOVERS CONVENTION apart from any other book industry convention? We mix business and networking with fellowship and fun.

•Begin each morning with a meet and greet mixer hosted by various authors and publishers. •Then choose from a rich variety of over 125 informative workshops for readers, writers and booksellers.•Join Authors, Publishers and Vendors in Club RT, the place to meet for socializing. •Pick up goodies on Promotion Lane to remember your authors. •Cap off the afternoon with a fun-filled stimulating networking party. •At dark, it's time to get ready for our sumptuous evening events. Attendees will receive lots of FREE books and promotional items from authors and publishers.

ON THE AGENDA: •PUBLISHED AUTHORS and ASPIRING WRITERS can attend over 100 workshops to learn how to write and get published, how to network, how to promote and how to increase sales. •READERS will enjoy a special five-day program with games, giveaways, prizes and lots of FREE BOOKS as well as attend bestselling author lectures in an intimate setting.

On that note, I will be staying in Good Nite Inn located in Sylmar, California from April 8-10 but I won't get back to NYC until the morning of April 11. How about you guys? Are any of y'all RT Booklovers Convention veterans? Any suggestions? Can you give me the scoop on the much anticipated Goody-Bag Room?
