For Authors ... and Readers too!! #RomancingtheCapital #Romance #Giveaways

Happy Wednesday! And almost the end of July. Can you believe it? Time flies too fast, but in the grand scheme of things, it's a good thing because there's always so much to look forward to in life. Birthdays, new releases, and CONFERENCES!!

One conference I'm looking forward to a lot is "Romancing the Captial" conference in Ottawa, hosted by the awesome, Eve Langlais.

I finally got my monies in for registration this morning. I'll be rooming and possibly traveling with Jessica E Subject, which I am really looking forward to, and I'm thinking ahead to giveaways, meeting readers and fun, fun, fun.

Which leads me to the following matters ...

READERS: What do you love to see as prizes? Keychains, bookmarks, pens...? Please give me some ideas!! 

and AUTHORS:  any Romance authors NOT attending the conference, please feel free to email me about donating to either of the TWO baskets I plan to give away at the conference. Whether print books, postcards, paper swag, custom-made items, I'm willing to put it all in the baskets. 
Authors that are attending, you're welcome to add things as well if you wish, though I am sure many of you will be doing your own giveaways *g*.  But feel free to email me if you wish.

I'm driving to Ottawa since it's only about 3 hours from my house, so I'll have lots of room. I'm sure Jessica won't mind sharing a seat if she has to!!! ROFL

Authors, if interested, email me at with "Ottawa Conference" as the subject plz and we'll talk.
[I do live in Canada, just FYI, so s/h could be a factor in your decision, but if you're willing to send the items, I will make sure they get in the baskets.]

Readers, just hit reply below and let me know what goodies you love most!!

I hope to see many of you in Ottawa!!


  1. Swag is awesome. My EveL Minion aprons were a huge hit at the last conference I went to :D I also like to give out paperbacks of my books. So glad you're coming!

  2. Very much looking forward to rooming together! I also want to know what readers prefer for swag. :)

  3. I like pens and keychains. Also microfiber cloths to clean our screens (with book cover on it or logo and web site) :) I also like the usb devices with the authors books on it.

    Bookmarks don't really fit well with ebooks that's why I like the microfiber cloth idea.

    Hope that helps a little.
