Upcoming Events:

  • #RAGT18: Mark your calendars, the 14th annual Reader & Author Get Together will be here before you know it! General Registration will be on Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

About RAGT:

One of my favorite places to go as an author is Lori Foster's RAGT (Readers and Authors Get Together). It's tough to get in as an author, so I go as a reader every year. But even as a reader, there are many fun and inspiring things to do. Meeting other people. Dancing during the parties. Playing bingo. And eating! My goodness the food, sponsored by some of the generous authors that attend the conference, is amazing. I'm also quite fond of the giant cookies the Marriott bakes every year. Thank you Marriott!

Anyway, there are so many interesting people to meet, readers and authors alike. It's so worth the long drive to Cincinnati. Not to mention, I get to see my friend, author Kimberly Adkins, every year in a comfortable, laid-back, and sometimes energetic setting.

And then there's the RAGT raffle. Baskets and baskets of goodies are donated to raise money for the One Way Farm.

From their website: THE ONE WAY FARM CHILDREN'S HOME IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION LOCATED IN FAIRFIELD, OHIO, CARING FOR THE ABUSED, ABANDONED, NEGLECTED, TROUBLED YOUTH, AND CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES AND DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES IN THE STATE OF OHIO WITHOUT REGARD TO RACE, COLOR, SEX, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN.

I have to admit. This part of the convention has become an obsession of mine. Every year, I strive to out-do myself by bringing the biggest, most stuff-ed'est (yes, I typed stuff-ed'est) baskets that I can. The bigger the basket, the more money is raised. So together with Kimberly Adkins, we do our best to make the Doctor Who basket bigger and better than the previous years. We don't care if we win anything, as long as we raise as much money as possible for such a wonderful place. Read  more about The One Way farm here.

Last year RAGT raised $22,500! That's a record we need to beat at RAGT18. For the kids!

GRAND PRIZE

It seemed too good to be true that she’d met someone like him at a dating service. He didn’t belong here like the others.

TAKE YOU AWAY

Would’ve been a perfect night to ask her if she wanted to meet and pursue some sort of…relationship-type thing if their meeting worked out. Not sure how it’d work since she lived five hundred miles away, but he was ambitious.
