RT Conference… Contest, Romance cards, etc. … Today on Coffee Time Romance!

Coffee Time Romance today is sponsored a forum specifically for California authors participating in the Romantic Times Convention in Los Angeles, April 6-10.  You can see more posts from other authors at the Forum here.  (If you’re not a member at CTR, they are trying to speed-approve new memberships today for new members wishing to participate in today’s forums)

Below is my post on the threads:


I’m heading to LA- a setting for many a tale of cataclysmic woe: Volcano (1997), Battle: LA (2011), 10.5 (2006).

Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus (2010).

Well, I’m coming to LA and to RT to offer you a different flavor: an epic romantic suspense/scifi/alternative history/mystery/speculative novel titled “12.21.12.”

“The only way to decode the past is to save the future. The only way to save the future is to decode the past.”

Egyptian mythology and Mayan prophecy combine to provide a fast-paced suspenseful romance that will keep you guessing right until the very end.

I’ll have swag, Egyptian candy, and temporary tattoos, and will have “12.21.12” in both e-format and hard copy for purchase. I’m also participating in the RT Romance Trading cards program, and will have three cards to offer for characters from 12.21.12: Shep Smyth, Dmitri Kronastia, and Victoria Kent. You can find out more about my and other cards that will be given out here. I’ll also have some cards from Laura Kaye, who sadly won’t be making RT this year, but will be at RWA this summer.

AND….. *drumroll* along with Robin DeJarnett and Lisa Sanchez, I will be participating in Romance Scavenger Hunt giveaway:
