On Twitter yesterday I was shocked to hear that RT is shutting down. The magazine, the convention, all of it. Guys, I love RT! I had my ticket to this one, but things came up and I couldn’t make it 🙁
I’m so sad.
RT is the Romantic Times magazine, and it hasn’t been in print for a while, but the emagazine has been serving up the same amazing content. They will keep the emagazine active for a year, but won’t be posting any new content.
BUT, from what I hear, the convention will be renamed The Booklover’s Convention, and continue on! The next con is in New Orleans and it’s next May 15!
I’m going to link to the article with more details here
And since I’ve had such a great time at previous RTs, I’m leaving you guys with some pictures from the last one I went to, RT 2016 in Las Vegas.
In order, me with Alisha Rai, me with Nalini Singh, Kresley Cole and me, me with Tessa Dare, Sasha Devlin and me, and Monica McCarty and me.
I’m still bummed. I mean, I took my daughter to Teen Day, and it was so much fun! She finally started reading! Do you know how hard it was to get her to read a book? But some of those books from RT were apparently right up her alley.
Romantic Times Convention, we’re going to miss you. But I’m really looking forward to seeing how the new Booklover’s Convention turns out! New Orleans 2019 baby! Woo! I hope to see you guys there!
I’m so jealous you met Monica McCarty. 🙂
She’s as wonderful as you would imagine 🙂
I wish I lived in USA so I could meet her and get some of my books signed. 🙁
I can’t wait until we can have conventions in person again. I know many authors are doing RARE in Paris. That’s a lot closer to you than it is to me LOL
