Party Hardy at the RT Booklovers Convention - Taste of Texas Romance Rodeo

The RT Booklovers Convention offers evening parties ... on Wednesday night, we celebrate the Taste of Texas Romance Rodeo:

RT’s opening night party is sure to set the tone for a wild Western fun time in Dallas. A Texas barbeque celebration — pulled pork sandwiches and some traditional Texas-style side dishes — will be served up and, for entertainment, there will be line dancing, country music and a mechanical bull! St. Martin’s Press and Grand Central Publishing will each have a “kissing booth” decorated with wood, burlap, gingham and all things country! 

Be sure dust off your cowboy boots, break out the hats and pack your finest Western attire for this fun-filled fantasy evening. And don’t forget your cameras, ‘cause this is sure to be the perfect photo op for your RT Convention scrapbook!

NOTE: Coveralls, hats and gloves will be provided for anyone who is not dressed to ride the bull — so no excuses!

DIAMOND SPONSORS: St. Martin's Press and Grand Central Publishing/Forever

RUBY SPONSORS: Authors J. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner), R.K. Lilley, Melody Anne, B.L. Marsh and Cindy Nord and Lori Perkins publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books.

  1. In my younger years I'd have been on that bull in a flash. Nowadays? Not a chance! LOL! Have a great time at the conference, Kim. Looking forward to your photos!

    (Don't include me in the giveaway)

  2. Ihave never seen one in action so I would have to see it first but I might try it out.

  3. Kim, I am gonna give that bull a run for its money! I will be glad to catch up,with you again!

  4. lol... no... I'd be there to watch all of the braver and more coordinated people try, but I know my limits :) thanks for sharing!

  5. I might try it on slo-speed, but too much turning and twisting wouldn't be good for my back!

  6. If I were younger but probably not now lol.

  7. Hmmm. Had back surgery last December. Don't think this would be on the doctor's list of recommended activities!
