Epic Signing Event (and More) at Book Lovers Con 2019

BLCBLC GGR2New Orleans, LA

May 19, 2019

At the Books and Beignets Morning Mixer, Saturday started with yummy beignets covered with powdered sugar, good conversation with fellow readers, and the opportunity to meet new authors. Good morning, romance!

Next came the Book Bash Author Signing. Three hours with 230 authors, thousands of books, and lots of swag, all in one room. Need I say more?

Berkley’s Geek Geek Revolution: Romance Edition was indisputably my favorite event of Book Lover’s Con, so far. It was so much fun to watch Karen Rose, Lexi Blake, Meg Tilly, Jasmine Guillory, and Chloe Neill battle over the title of Ultimate Romance Geek. Damon Suede was incredible as the host. He was funny, irreverent, and brilliant with his questions and hilarious hints. You could see the camaraderie, competitiveness, and connection among the authors as they jumped out of their seats in excitement to answer first. They were fiercely competitive, yet helped each other get the answer right. Witty and funny, they totally engaged the audience and made the event thoroughly enjoyable. The audience became participants not just spectators, as they laughed, played along, and even contributed questions to stump the authors and win prize bags. Hats off to Berkley and their fabulous authors!
