This year at the Romantic Times Booklovers convention I had the pleasure of being invited to the International Welcome Party. The event started last year with an informal get together for those who made the trip to RT from another country.

 

This year with even more attendees making the long trip to celebrate their love of books the party was formalized. It was wonderful to see so many people from around the world brought together. Held in the penthouse function suite of the hotel with its beautiful chandeliers and breath-taking view of New Orleans, it was the perfect setting. I spoke to attendees from Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand and Azerbaijan to name a few.
“I was a bit nervous about coming to be honest, so it was nice to meet some other people like me.” Cherie Nicholls of London, England
“Great to start with a bit of bubbly and nice to see familiar faces.” Jane Lark of Bath, England
“Great to meet people from around the world.” Marlies Sehon, Australia

It really me me feel right at home.
