Gearing Up for the Romantic Times Convention

I leave in twelve days (TWELVE DAYS!!!) for the Romantic Times Convention in Kansas City, MO.

EEP.

I think I have all my outfits picked out, my jewelry and my headbands and tiara and...

And...

Did I remember to order those posters?

Gah. I always go a little insane right before a convention. And things are a little different this year, which is giving me hives, but is also a good thing. Instead of selling three eBooks at the eBook Expo, we're selling them all. You can purchase my entire eBook inventory currently on All Romance eBooks!

Which means, if you're attending and plan on purchasing eBooks from some of your favorite authors, make sure your device can read Qwerty (aka QR) codes. We'll be slapping stickers onto post cards with the code that takes you to the author's ARe page. And in case you're wondering, this is what a QR code looks like:

Go ahead. Scan it. It should take you to my ARe page. (If not, let me know; I'll need to fix that ASAP!) All of the authors selling eBooks will have these on something, be it postcards or something else.

If your device doesn't have that QR code reader attached, you can check your device for a QR Code Reader app. Most mobile devices have them available for free. In fact, I realized I didn't have one on my phone and downloaded it. There was more than one to choose from, and it was pretty easy! (PLEASE NOTE: Your phone or mobile device, like an iPad, needs to have a camera function in order to read a QR code.)

If you don't want to mess with QR codes and downloading apps to your device, you can simply click or type in this link into your tablet, phone or PC internet browser:

That will take you directly to my ARe author page.


FOR THOSE WHO *CANNOT* ATTEND THE EXPO IN PERSON

Mark Your Calendar for the RT EXPO on May 2  from 4 to 6 pm and 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 we 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 4 pm to 6 pm and attend the virtual event! Just click on any author’s name and it will take you to their unique author page on All Romance e-Books website where you can begin purchasing. We recommend that, if you do not already have an account with ARe  you set one up before the EXPO begins on May 2 to make your purchasing easy on the day of the event. We will be tweeting and Facebooking from the hotel with a live feed so feel free to join in the fun!

And in case you're wondering where I'll be at the convention, I'm posting my full schedule here.

P.S.: My Hob posters came in on time!

Just got a QR scan app and it worked great. Took me straight to your site.
