Authors After Dark Swag Bag

Well, I’m back from the Authors After Dark conference, and man, did I have a GREAT time. Spending time with readers was amazing…I can’t even begin to describe how incredible it is to hang out with the people who read the books I write. I knew a lot of people online, but meeting them in person gave me a whole new appreciation for them. Plus, I was there for my birthday, and not only did I have a room full of 300 people singing happy birthday to me, but I got to spend some quality time in one of the hotel rooms with some wonderful ladies for another celebration that was truly one of the highlights of the conference.

The Mythos ball was so fun, and getting to dress up for both that and the Steampunk dinner was a blast. I was also on some great panels with hilarious and talented authors.

Although there were a lot of issues with the hotel (I will never stay at the Hilton Doubletree in Philadelphia again,) the conference attendees were fantastic. So was the swag!

And speaking of swag, I have some to give away to someone who wasn’t lucky enough to be able to attend.

Here’s the stuff: a tote bag, books, and various swaggy-ness. There are books, playing cards, pens, keychains, bath salts, note pads, and more. I’ll toss in some of my promo items as well. Total grab bag!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment to tell me what you’re reading right now. Also, I’m hoping to build up my newsletter list before I send out my next one for the release of Supernatural, so I’d love it if you could sign up (but it’s not necessary to be entered in this contest!)

Winner will be announced Saturday, so be sure to check back!

As a reader, you authors were fantastic — so approachable and gracious to your fans! — the fellow attendees were great and the hotel sucked donkey balls.

    Hi! I’m glad you had so much fun at the conference, wish I could have made it.

    Right now I’m reading Eyes of the Dead by G.R. Yeates. It’s horror and as far removed from romance as I think I’ve ever gotten.

  30. Jamie says:

    Really wish I could have been there! I am on pins and needles waiting for the release of Supernatural!!
    Anyway, I am currently reading two books. The first one is Harry Potter. Thit is the book I am reading while my two small children are awake. They like to ask what I am reading and what is going on in the book. This way I can answer their question and keep then interested in reading.
    The second one is Dark Needs at Night’s Edge by Kresley Cole! :tongue:

  31. Athena Tee says:

    Hey Larissa! I’m so glad to hear that you had a memorable birthday (and conference)! I would have loved to attend – sounded like my kind of crowd! haha! – but being in Florida really put a damper on that plan… so winning that goodie bag would be awesome!!

    I’m currently reading Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series (I heard she was there dancing with you, too!), and I must say that it is a very popcorn type of series so far… you know, you stick your hand in the popcorn bag and take a bite – next thing you know it’s empty! Ha, that’s how I’ve been moving through these books – I start, and next thing I know I’m ready to move onto the next book!

    Super big hugs and belated birthday wishes,
    Athena
