Welcome to Escape to Romance, hosted by myself, DemonLover of Demon Lover’s Books and More and Book Savvy Babe.
Since it’s a week of love, we are celebrating romance with the Escape to Romance event. We have so much going on this week, from author visits, interviews, and chats, to romance discussions, and lots of awesome giveaways and prizes! The more you participate, the more chances you have to win! Our grand prize of the event is a RomCon Registration Ticket! If you can’t make RomCon, or you are international, don’t worry, you can win a $30 to Amazon or The Book Depository!

To Kick-Off this event, Michelle Callahan, the
RomCon Co-Founder is here!
Hi Everyone! We are so excited to be just months away from the third annual RomCon® – the only romance readers’ convention dedicated 100% to the fans! We don’t have a single writing workshop. Not one. Instead, we bring readers and authors together in over 80 reader events spanning three days to chat face-to-face, play games and remember what it was like to have fun. (Remember that long-lost childhood pastime?)
We are giving away a ticket for this event, so I thought I’d give you all a taste of the fun and chaos we’ve got planned for June 22-24 in Denver at RomCon 2012.
Here are my Top Ten Reasons To Go To RomCon® 2012.

1 – The fantastic and whimsical Titanic Tea Party! We are honoring the 100 year anniversary of the Titanic tragedy with a romantic journey back through time. Deeanne Gist and a host of authors will escort you back to 1912 and assign you an authentic Titanic passenger persona for the event. While learning and serving a formal and proper tea at your table, you will play games, learn some amazing facts, and find out whether you live or die at the end of the Titanic Tea Party. Victorian costumes welcome, but not required.

2 –Monte Carlo Night (aka – The Grand Opening of Casino RomCon) A night of murder, mystery, a musical show, and gambling all rolled in to one. We’ll have a who-dun-it caper going on, with authors as the characters, a Las Vegas style musical number, and over 18 gaming tables! Come dressed to kill…because it’s Black Tie.

3 – Chocolate Mangasm II – More fun, more naughty but giggle-worthy games, and enough chocolate to satisfy the most intense cravings. Join Delilah Marvelle and a host of erotic romance authors for the biggest bachelorette party around!

4 – The Search For A Legendary Hero contest – Legendary romance cover model CJ Hollenbach will emcee the contest live, on stage on Saturday night. We’ll have ten gorgeous men, as voted on by all of you, on hand to compete for the title of Legendary Hero while representing their version of the perfect hero. We’ve got a Spartan, a Detective, a Cowboy, a Fighter Pilot, and more. Who will be chosen? It’s all up to you!

5 – Intimate Chats – and lots of them. You, your favorite author, and 12-15 friends in a boardroom setting talking about books. Sounds like heaven to me…

6 – Paranormal Dine-In for Inter-Species Peace – Fans of the wild and crazy Dine-In tradition will not be disappointed as we host this dinner to promote peace in the paranormal world. Be warned, there are RULES, and if you break one we might set the werewolves loose…

7 – A fun weekend with my girlfriends. Yes, I know, but since when does “real life” leave us alone for three days of pure girl-time?

8 – Speed-Date-A-New-Author – I feel weird trying to strike up conversations with authors I’ve never read. But guess what? You don’t have to. Three minutes. The authors speed-chat and you get to smile, listen, and move on! Whew!

9 – Lots of free books and other stuff. Did I mention Free Books?

10 – And last but not least, I’m going to get my picture taken with a hunky model…or three. They’ll be available in the photo room all weekend, so get your sexy clench move ready! You can be on your own book cover with one of our Legendary Hero contestants.

There’s more, but I promised to stop at ten. Check out the RomCon 2012 website for more info. You can sign up for the Buddy Program if you don’t want to fly solo for the weekend. Don’t worry, we’re a friendly group of insta-friends. We all love romance. We all love the same books, the same heroes, and the same Happily-Ever-Afters. I sincerely hope you will treat yourself to a wonderful weekend among friends.
Leave a question, or let us know what you most want to do at RomCon for a chance to win a free convention ticket!

Hugs to all, and see you at RomCon!
