OK, so it’s still 11 months away but that doesn’t mean that I am not counting down the days or desperately trying to read as many books by attending authors as I can.
My first and only book signing was at this years RARE in London and the day went by in a blur of excitement and awe! The chance to meet my favourite authors had me a nervous wreck but once I was there and actually face to face with them I can honestly say that they are some of the nicest, friendliest and funny people I have ever met. Everyone was there for the same reason (or I hope they were) and that was to share their love of romance novels with the authors who bring them to life.
As you can probably tell I am still on a bit of a high from it and that is definitely having an impact on my enthusiasm for the the next one.
Speaking of which…as you can see from the header image, the line up of authors next year is HUGE!
The main authors on my list of must sees are:
(the books/series that I have put next to the names are only the ones I have read)
Tiffany Snow – The Kathleen Turner Series & associated companion novellas, The Tangled Ivy Series, The Risky Business Series, The Corrupted Hearts Series, Blank Slate.
Brenna Aubrey – Gaming the System Series, High Risk – Point of No Return #1.
Catherine Bybee – The Weekday Brides Series, Not Quite Series #1 – 4, Chasing Shadows – First Wives #3
Kendra Elliot – Bones Secret Series, Callahan & McLane Series, Mercy Kilpatrick Series
Kitty/Kat French – Knight Series, The Chapelwick Mysteries Series, One Hot Summer, Undertaking Love, The Bed and Breakfast on the Beach, A Summer Scandal.
Jane Harvey-Berrick – Undefeated, Model Boyfriend
Lisa Renee Jones – Tall, Dark & Deadly Series #1 – 3, Cinderella Chronicles #1 – 3.
Melinda Leigh – She Can Series #1 – 3
Laurelin Paige – The Fixed Trilogy, Hudson, The Found Duet.
Julie A Richman – The Needing Moore Series, Henry’s End
J S Scott – The Billionaire’s Obsession Series #1 – 6 , The Sinclairs #1.
This list may seem quite short in comparison to the number of names on the line up list but it will grow and I am always open to suggested reading of new authors.
As yet there is no mention of whether the delectable Men of RARE – Stuart Reardon, Jase Dean & Franggy Yanez – will be attending but I live in hope! 🙂
