Where at RT are the Nine Naughty Novelists?

If you read Kim's fabulous post about last year's RT, you may have noticed there was some mention of some of us getting lost. We certainly don't want that happening! So here's a handy list of all the events we're scheduled to appear at. If you see us there, be sure to say 'hi'!


WEDNESDAY:

SPECIALTY: PARSING THE SMEXY: EROTIC ROMANCE DEFINED

How do you define erotic romance? Is it all about the story, or all about the heat and kink? Is it just smut with an HFN? Should it be a subgenre at all? However you define erotic romance, even if it’s just “I know it when I see it,” join authors, reviewers and industry professionals in what's sure to be a lively, thought-provoking discussion of this hot topic.

Pre-ordered tickets will be picked up at the hotel on the day of the Giant Book Fair.
