It’s time for me to start getting revved up for the upcoming RT (Romantic Times) Conference May 1st. Still sounds like a long way away, but it isn’t. I’ve got some great bookmarks and postcards with discount coupons on my erotic sci-fi series from Carina Press – the Confederacy Treaty. And I’ve booked a bunch of things to attend – signings, hostings, panels, editor meetings and more.
Then there are the parties. And the clothes. But you know what I am looking forward to? Spending some time with my favourite cover model, Scott Nova. 🙂
A few weeks ago a few authors and I bought a date with Scott – in the name of a good cause. Scott is one of the people helping out Vicki Stewart (a single mom) and her family, as she is battling lymphoma and has medical and moving expenses.
A little about this great cause (from the Facebook description): This auction is being held to help Vicki & her family relocate and make it through the next few months as their landlord is selling their current home and they need to move asap. Vicki was diagnosed with non-hodgkins b-cell follicular lymphoma in October of 2012 and went through 2 six week sessions of radiation, one of the sessions coinciding with a 6 week session of chemo & 1 eight week session of immunotherapy suppression & she is currently in Week 2 of the second six week session of immunotherapy suppression, as of now.
Vicki has children living at home & is currently still unable to work outside the home, as she has horrible bouts with nausea & dizzy spells, however she still promotes authors & does reviews (Platinum Book Reviews) from her bedside to show her incredible love for the literary community and she love her indie authors to pieces!
So we’re meeting for breakfast as a group to get to know this great fireman/model – a real life hero. I can’t wait! I’ll be posting about the events of the conference and you can be sure there will be lots of pictures.
