Breaking News... RT 2011 Heading to the West Coast!!

Hey Everybody,

I just heard from Carol Stacy that RT 2011 will be in Los Angeles 2011!!! I know many So Cal bloggers will be thrilled that RT is finally heading west. It has been many years since the Romantic Times Convention has been on that side of the continent. Living over here in Florida I am rather impartial to the change in location. I have never been to California, though so it will be a fabulous excuse to travel!

The event is scheduled for the beginning of April the 6th - 10th and will be located at the Westin Bonaventure. Apparently, this is the same hotel that was filmed in the movie True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis. It looks pretty posh from what I can see.  Whoo boy!  I am so excited!!

Consider yourself in the know... and start saving. I want to meet you!

Whhhoooo!! That's a great news!! LOL :)

Jeez man, better start saving money now... as I was planning to go to the RT which takes place in NY in 2011 ^_^;

By the way, did you know there is a new convention for romance readers? RomCon ( Apparently, they're holding their first convention this year... and although they don't have that many authors, oh boy, did they score with who is coming: Elizabeth Hoyt, Nalini Singh, Julia Quinn, Christine Feehan, Carly Phillips, Susan Mallery, etc.

Oh crap!! I didn't know RomCon had so many great authors. I did hear about it through Jessica at Racy Romance Reviews. I was going to see how it went first before I committed to anything. See how it goes, ya know? Yeah, I better start saving, lol!

How awesome! I'll be there for sure!

FINALLY! Although I'm surprised to see L.A. - given that RT likes to keep costs down. I was thinking they'd hit Arizona or New Mexico before California :) But it's a good vacation spot - so maybe that will entice even more people to come?

Oh, and the chance meet the So. Cal. Bloggers of course. What possible RT Convention attendee could resist that? Ha!

I was hoping for RT in Phoenix - it's really nice here in April but I might be able to make it to L.A. Only 6 hours or so of driving. Good thing there's time to save. :)

And meeting those crazy So. Cal bloggers is an added bonus!

I have to tell you, I am super excited about this. That hotel looks really swanky and I am sure will cost a pretty penny. I will start saving up for it now. It would be so AWESOME to meet all of you :)
