I absolutely love going to reader conventions. The chance to interact in person with people who one-click, auto-buy, and read voraciously in the same genres I do is a special thrill. The ability to meet my favorite authors, and tell them why their books meant so much? Double win.
The VBC crew is spread throughout North America and England. We could be hitting up smaller, niche events all over. This is where you come in. I want to know what your favorite conventions are.
I have RT Booklover’s Convention on my list this year, as well as NOLA StoryCon (hint: you can go on a tour there with me), but I love the smaller events too. I went to Coastal Magic Convention a few weeks ago, and it was an absolute blast. There’s a fun one in North Texas called Readers & ‘Ritas, which I hope to make this year. You get the point.
Tell us what events are awesome, and maybe some of the VBC crew will show their smiling, book-loving selves.
Note: I almost titled this post “where should we go?” but worried I’d be setting myself up for all types of jokes in the comments.
