You didn’t think the Dolls would just let the RT Convention go by without something special happening in the dollhouse did you?
Last year Literary Escapism had a fantastic feature that focused on all the new or debut authors that were attending the Romantic Times Convention. Their feature was so awesome and wonderful we thought that perhaps we should just let Jackie at LE do what she does so well.
Then we were approached about doing something to promote RT on PBD. We started brainstorming and since we are only having one doll (Mona Leigh) in attendance at the convention we decided to work up a separate feature all together so we could feel like we were there in L.A. at the event with all our friends and favorite authors and we still wanted to make it different from what Literary Escapism was going to cover…cause let’s face it, LE is the bomb!
So, this year we have decided to focus on all the wonderful Young Adult fiction authors out there with a very special convention feature … and it’s going to be spectacular! We enlisted our resident teen reviewer to help and then we asked our readers for their input so we could come up with a list of questions to ask each author. We will have authors visiting daily giving interviews and giveaways galore and that’s before we even get to RT itself where special Roving RT Reporter-Doll Mona will be sending updates and news right from the source! Who’s coming to PBD? Here’s a peek…
