We’re going to…

…Kansas City. Kansas City, here we come! The ladies of International Heat are taking the BBQ capital by storm as we all converge in the Midwest for the Romantic Times Convention. Valerie will arrive Sunday afternoon, while Lexxie and I hit the hotel late Sunday evening. Lila and Rhian (and Mr. C.) will arrive Monday around dinner time, and Bianca (her dad) and Jess are joining us Tuesday midday. To say we’re all excited about this opportunity to hang out, while attending fun sessions and drinking at the bar with reader friends is an UNDERstatement! We’ve been practically giddy for months!

There are two events that are open to the public. If you’re a KC local, we’d love to meet you!


On Thursday, May 2 from 4 – 6 pm, there will be an ebook expo with more than 300 e-book and small press authors and many graphic novel authors. RT recommends that you download any QR Code Reader from iTunes since many authors will have a QR (Quick Response) Code on their promo materials. With this QR Reader you can scan the code on your mobile device and go right to the book you want to purchase. You can buy your E-Book, Indie Publisher and Graphic Novel Expo ticket at the door for $5. The location is at the Sheraton Kansas City Crown Center, 2345 McGee Street, Kansas City, Mo., 64180. Tickets can be purchased on site and we suggest you arrive at 3:30 pm.


Join in the virtual EXPO event!

THIS YEAR THE RT EXPO IS GOING GLOBAL! ARe is the official bookseller for RT’s Expo and this year they are making the book lover event global so that everyone from home can participate. Join in the fun by visiting this page on May 2 from 4pm to 6pm and attend the virtual event! Just click on any author’s name and it will take you to her unique author page on All Romance e-Books website where you can begin purchasing. If you do not already have an account with ARe, you should set one up before the EXPO begins to make your purchasing easy on the day of the event.

This year’s giant book fair will take place on Saturday, May 4th from 11am – 2pm.

For those bringing collectibles and “keeper” books, they have a system to separate these books for you, so as not to mistake them for new books! You can purchase a $5 ticket at the door to attend just the book fair.

We hope to see you in Kansas City!

  1. Hope you all enjoy KC. I think it is a great place. Lots of fun places to go and see. OK, I might be a little prejudice since I am from the area.

  2. Sounds like a wonderful time! Wish I could go as it is only a few hours from my home. But I can’t miss that many days from work as I will be leaving for Texas a few days after the convention for my oldest son’s graduation from Basic Training. Maybe next time…. I hope it is a good time for all. Have fun! KC has some amazing BBQ!
