Recap of #RAGT2015

I haven't done one of these posts in awhile, so I figured why not share my experience from #RAGT2015 with you.  Last weekend, I got to go to the Reader and Author Get Together in Ohio and I always have so much fun at this event.  It's my fourth year attending and I was super excited about this year. 

There were so many amazing authors there that I hadn't met before and a few that I have and love seeing each year.  Ended up coming home with over 30 books and some amazing swag as well.  

I got to see the amazing Katie McGarry and to chat with her again.  Love her books and she is so sweet.  Since I've started my business and career as a Literary agent, I wasn't there just as a blogger this year, which was fantastic.  Thanks to Katie, I got to meet her editor at Harlequin teen.  Thanks again Katie for introducing us.  Also got to see Kristen Simmons for a bit, but sadly she had to leave early and I didn't get to talk to her that much.  I love getting to see her though, she's a great author and fantastic person.  

Also got to see the spectacular Darynda Jones and Robyn Peterman.  I love these two authors.  Along with these two, I also got to chat with Donna McDonald and Eve Langlais, who I adore as well.  Like I said so many authors in one place, its crazy how much fun you can have. 

Of course, the amazing and sweetest author in the world is Lori Foster, who is the author that puts this event on.  I love chatting with her as well, this event raises money for some great charities as well, which is just one of the million reasons I love this convention.  

This year there were some great parties as well, one of which I got to dress up for.  It was a Wizard of Oz party and you all know how much I love steampunk, so I went as Steampunk Dorothy! 

Had so much fun at this event, so many people dressed up and that made it so much fun.  There was a DJ and trivia as well.  Toni Blake was one of the authors that sponsored this party and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next year. 

All in all, the event was a blast and I got to spend the weekend with great friends, my mother and fantastic books! I can't wait for next year!

Oh and before I forget, I must mention the amazing food and the bar! The same waiter/bartender has been there for several years, yep he's amazing.  Got the pretzels this year and loved them so much. 

This is one event I will keep going to every year! I love it that much and have that much fun.  I think next year though I'm getting a room for three days instead of just the two.
