Welcome to Bourbon Street!
New Orleans has a fascinating history and this summer, a group of enthusiastic authors and readers will decent at the Royal Sonesta Hotel for the Authors After Dark convention.
Unfortunatelly I won't be able to go to New Orleans, to experience the culture and craziness, but because I really wanted to and I am excited Jackie will get to go, I joined up with Literary Escapism to feature a bunch of the Small Press authors who’ll be attending Authors After Dark as well.
Between now and Fat Tuesday (the 21st), Jackie and I will be featuring 27 authors as they give us their impressions of New Orleans through the eyes of one of their characters. Check out who’ll be visiting Jackie's Blog and Mine :
|Abigail Barnette||Megan Grooms|
|Trinity Blacio||Cat Johnson|
|Boone Brux||Stacey Kennedy|
|Stephanie Burke||Rosalie Lario|
|Melanie Card||Lacie Nation|
|Kris Cook||Kris Norris|
|Teresa D’Amario||Sophie Oak|
|Jae Lynne Davies||Melissa Schroeder|
|Gail Donnelly & Robyn Mackenzie||Arianna Skye|
|Mari Freeman||Damon Suede|
|Eliza Gayle||Julia Tabot|
|KT Grant||BA Tortuga|
|Bronwyn Green||Beth Williamson|
As the authors visit LE and Literary Escapism, we’ll update the above table with links to their posts, which is important to know. Some of these authors have offered up copies of their novels for contests and what better way to try an author than to get a novel for free. More importantly, you’ll want to make sure you stop by as Larissa and I will be giving away two $25 gift cards to All Romance Books and all you have to do is to stop by one and see what these fabulous authors have to offer. Two winners will be selected from all the comments on the 27 Bourbon Street posts, which means you have 27 chances. Jackie and I hope we can introduce you to a new author while we visit Bourbon Street.
Even though we won’t be giving any additional entries, you can still help support the authors by sharing this event and their articles on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, or anywhere you can. After all, the more people who are aware of these fabulous authors will ensure we get more fabulous stories.
The contest will stay open until February 28th at which time we’ll determine the winners with help from the snazzy new plug-in I have, the Research Randomizer and the List Randomizer.
I have not been contacting winners, so you will need to check back to see if you’ve won.
