Lori Foster’s Readers and Authors Get Together was amazing. First, if you haven’t met Lori Foster, she’s a real person as opposed to a celebrity. Her husband, Al, worked extremely hard making everything a success. It was fun eating meals with readers and just hanging out. SCP, my publisher, had a game room where readers were winning extravagant baskets and gift cards. All you had to do is show up. In you live anywhere close to Cincinnati or Ohio you might consider going next year. You don’t have to stay in the hotel. Fifty dollars gives you the right to all the meals and events.
There were no cover models walking around, but author Tricia Andersen and I had our pics taken with one of Lori Foster’s cover models. I will admit he was a bit on the flat side. There were over 300 gift baskets in the raffle to raise money for an abused children’s shelter. The RAGT raised over $17,000 for a very good cause. I’ll be there next year and hope to see a few of you too.

If I don’t hear from the selected winner, I’ll draw again until I find a newsletter reader winner. (It is a bit like you have to be present to win. J) I have two free book winners who need to contact me with their picks from my backlist on www.morgankwyatt.com. The winners are Rayna Scherer and Liza Ozborn.
