I love to meet readers at author/reader events. Here are the conventions and gatherings I am registered for in 2012. Please be aware that I'm still new to all of this, so feel free to send me a message to let me know you'll be at an event so I can be sure we don't miss each other. As additional events become available, I'll add them to the list.
RT Booklovers Convention
May 1-5, 2013
Venue: Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center
Location: Kansas City, MO
Thursday, May 2 (public book signing), Kansas City, Mo.
If you'd like for Kally to sign her books for you, be sure to come to the Expo signing on Thursday. (Self-published authors aren't allowed to sign at the Giant Book Signing on Saturday.) Kally's also planning a party to show her appreciation for her Brats, though, so stay tuned! It may be on Saturday and she probably will have books available if you didn't get a signed copy Thursday. *wink-wink* Stay tuned to her Facebook page and Twitter for last-minute announcements. Twitter hashtag #KallyRT13
Rescue Me Tour and Book Signing
May 9-13, 2013
Location: San Diego and Southern California
Kally is hiring a tour company to provide transportation of key locations mentioned in the Rescue Me series, from Solana Beach (Eden Gardens) to Camp Pendleton to Thousand Steps Beach. The tour probably will be one day and there will be a fee for participants, although she'll probably have a contest or charity auction to give away two seats on the van/bus. She's also planning to have a book signing at a local bookstore probably the Saturday before Mother's Day.
San Jose Book Signing
May 16, 2013
May 16 - 19, 2013
* Plans are still being made and very tentative. This one's on the wish list, though! This is a semi-private event so if you are interested in attending, contact Kally at email@example.com.
Cincinnati Book Signing
June 8, 2013
Venue: Cincinnati Marriott North at Union Centre
Location: West Chester Ohio
Kally will NOT be a featured author at the Lori Foster Reader & Author Gathering this year, but plans to drop in on Saturday afternoon/evening to hang out with her Brats and some writer friends. If you'll be at Lori's be sure to make arrangements to say hi. (She'll probably be in the bar area. ) For Twitter, it's #KallyRAGT
Author's After Dark
August 14-18, 2013
Venue: SAVANNAH MARRIOTT RIVERFRONT
Location: Savannah, GA
Kally will be a featured author this year and will be co-hosting two events—the Indie Author Celebration (5-6 p.m. Thursday) and the BDSM BINGO event (4-6 p.m. Friday). She'll also be on several panels where readers get to ask 5-6 authors questions about a particular theme or topic. There are lots of opportunities to engage with authors at this event, including at mealtimes--and there are some wonderful meals included in the registration fee. For Twitter, it's #KallyAAD.
Kally will be vacationing in the Monterey Bay area and researching Patrick Gallagher's lady love (who lives in Carmel). She will schedule a signing in the area sometime during the month of September, but is waiting to determine which days her family wants her NOT doing business. She won't want to schedule it at a time when the family is celebrating Master Erik's first birthday, of course! Watch future newsletters and social media sites for details and announcements.
Indie Romance Convention
October 4-6, 2013
Venue: Comfort Suites
Location: Lebanon, TN
Kally will be a featured author at this first-time convention and has a special treat planned for her Brats. She's flying in Toymaker and Corie, his submissive (both of whom provided expertise for scenes in Kally's last two books). They also make her evil sticks which she gives away as door prizes at appearances and conventions. (One of these sticks was used by Sir Damian in Nobody's Perfect.) They're planning a 90-minute lecture, discussion, demo (fully clothed!) on BDSM. The convention will include a booksigning, chances to hang out with your favorite indie authors, and much more. Twitter hashtag #KallyIndieCon.
