Adventure in the book world – Romancing the Falls 2017

Hello and welcome!

This post has been a long time coming since the Romancing the Falls author reader event was on May 20, 2017. But you know how it is, life gets in the way of fun sometimes.

The event was aaaaawesome! Kudos to Freya Barker and her team for organizing this fabulous event.

As you can see from the banner, it was quite an incredible lineup of authors. I got to see and hug some of my fave authors I met at previous events: Marianne Maguire, Freya Barker, Kali Willows, Tricia Daniels, Rosanna Leo, Felicity Kates, Kayleigh Malcolm.

And I got to cross off a few from my bucket list of ‘authors to meet’. When I saw their names on the list I squeeeed 😀

Renea Mason, I adore her and her books are so hot they are sizzling. I listened to all the audiobooks released so far. Can I say I am addicted and I want more? Of course I had to get all the books in print too so I can add them to my treasures. Keep checking back, some of her hunks are coming for a chat soon *sigh*

Kym Grosso, with her ready smile and sense of humour, she charmed us all. I have a few book boyfriends in the “Immortals of New Orleans” series, my faves are Léopold and Dimitri. Jase Dean joined her too, he is the model on a few of her covers. He is so sweet and hawt of course 😉

Also got to meet Jayne Rylon, and bought the “Powertools” series and received an I READ PAST MY BEDTIME tote bag that I’ve been eyeing for a while now. While Jean was busy, her hubby was quite entertaining and he gave me a good deal too 😀

I took part in a hunt for signatures and entered the contest for a HUGE gift basket filled with a lot of stuff. I didn’t win, but it was fun nonetheless.

Added a few more buttons to my ‘signings-only’ tote bag that has my all time book boyfriend Lothrariel (from the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham) on the front… still MINEMINEMINE Mary 😛

Got some fun swag. The fan from Alexandria Sure came in handy for the hot flashes 😀 Mr. Gleason was the most entertaining in his presentation of his books. I will have to check them out for sure. The cake pops he was giving out were delicious, good thing I tried them at home and not during the event, I would have raided the table LOL

Also bought fun ones, I burst out laughing when I saw these, had to have them. I will have to find out what is the story behind these, KM Golland has a wicked sense of humour judging by the merchandise she has. Will have to venture in her book world too.

Added swag bags filled with stuff to the registration bags.

I brought two baskets, one from M. A. Abraham and one from Sharon Hamilton, for the silent auction with proceeds going to Niagara Falls Food Bank. Thank you again for your generosity MA and Sharon ❤

I bid on a few myself and won one basket in the silent auction, the one from the “Wiccan Haus” a series I love, donated by Kali Willows and Dominique Eastwick.

A recipe book was on sale to with recipes from attending authors and the proceeds went to the same charity as the silent auction. I bought 3 copies, they make great hostess gifts!

The silent auction and the recipe book sales raised almost $1,500 for the Food Bank. Isn’t that awesome?

These are the books I read/listened to but needed them in print, signed for my treasure shelf.

These are the books going on the TBR pile. So many books, so little time, I should play the lottery and win big so I can read more LOL

The buffet dinner after the signing was quite good and got to sit at the table with authors and readers mixing together, have great conversations and laughs too.

I have a bag filled with awesome swag donated by the authors and would like to share the bounty with one of you, plus some surprises I will add to the bag from me 😉 Let me know in the comments who are the authors on your “I would love to meet” list. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a winner after 3pm on Monday, July 10, 2017. GOOD LUCK!
