1 sleep til New Orleans ~ RT Convention Preview by Brandilyn and Giveaway


Less than 24 hours until I leave for New Orleans. The flight is scheduled for 8am or something like that. I am all checked in and will once again be traveling with the lovely Ms. Becky Condit.  My boarding number is A42, that has to bode well for the trip, right?. I will be saying goodbye to the kids when I put them to bed tonight, though it would not surprise me in the least if 4yo is up at 5:30 when I am getting ready to leave. I really should pack at some point, today… currently doing laundry so I will not be naked in NOLA (some people can get away with it, I am not one 😉 ). Also debating how much “empty space” I need in my luggage.

So what am I looking forward to at RT? So, so much! I finally get to meet some people that I have been talking to online forever including fellow bloggers (Jay of Joyfully Jay, and Heather C & Nikyta of The Blogger Girls), authors (JP Barnaby, Jo Myles, Amy Lane, Chris Cox, Damon Suede, E.M. Lynley, Vanessa North, Amber Kell, and so many more I cannot name them all), and readers (Mary and Frances come to mind among others). I will also get to see a few people I met at RainbowCon last month (Jordan L Hawke, Wade Kelly, and Susan from Boys in our books… Susan, sweetie, we will have more than 2 minutes together this time 😉 ).

I will once again have my Prism Book Alliance Button on my badge. So look for it.

I will also have pens and post-it note swag, so feel free to hit me up for that 🙂

Where will I be at the con? I have no clue! This con is HUGE! Tuesday, I will be at the Blogger pre-con workshop. After that all bets are off. I plan to attend as many of the LGBT and blogger panels as possible, and I will be at the Big Book Fair on Saturday. Other than that I will take things as they come.

I am quite intimidated by the sheer size of this con. RainbowCon was like a family reunion. It was small, I knew many people from online and never ran out of things about which to talk. Once I am comfortable it is hard to get me to shut up. Unlike RainbowCon, at RT we (the LGBT contingent) are the little fishies. I am just hoping we can find each other.

I am hoping to once again offer you daily updates. We will see how that goes.

Much Love and see you Tomorrow!



So I have a little giveaway to go with my RT Update posts.  Every comment made on one of my “RT Con Updates” will enter you to win a swag pack.  It will include a Prism Tote Bag filled with RainbowCon swag, RT Swag, and Prism Book Alliance swag.  It will also include a $10 Amazon Giftcard.

I will draw the winner from among all those who comment on my RT Updates on 20 May 2014 after I get back from New Orleans.

Farewell Giveaway
