I'll be heading to Reno come May 14th for the annual Romantic Times Convention, and I hope to see some of you guys there. I'll be at the Kensington party, Thursday night at 5:15-6:30, the Giant Book Fair on Saturday, and the FAN-tastic Day Party on Saturday night. Why they call it a Day party when it's held at night, I do not know.
My sister, cozy mystery writer Kirsten Weiss, will also be attending. And we've decided to have a little fun. A Death vs Desire scavenger hunt. The rules are simple: find one of us at RT when we're signing, get one of our books and we'll provide an instruction sheet with clues to locations in the Peppermill Resort. Using your sleuthing skills, find those locations, snap a pic of our book there, and post it on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram with the hashtag #DeathvsDesire. That's it. Players will get an entry for each pic they take and post at the correct location, and for each social media platform they post it on. The more clues you unravel and locations you find, the more chances you have to win. And the prize will be a $50 Amazon gift card (or to the vendor of your choice).
I'm hoping that not only will the winning entry be of one of my romance books, but that romance will flood the entries, proving once and for all that my genre is better than my sister's. :) We haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking that whoever's book wins the scavenger hunt will get treated to dinner by the losing sister. So help a fellow romance lover out, and let's kick mystery's butt!
If you'll be at RT this year, I hope you'll come find me and say hi. And look for the #deathvsdesire hashtag along with #rt2018!
