Readers want to meet authors, converse with them, possibly eat with them, and get their books signed. Prizes, costume contests, and giveaways just make it that much more fun. There isn’t any place that I know about that provides all of these options for readers and writers better than Lori Foster’s annual Reader and Author Get Together at a relatively inexpensive price.
The boardrooms offer games, contests, oppotunities to converse with authors and chances to win prizes. Secret Cravings Boardroom had an amazing prize baskets for playing familiar games such as Monopoly, Password and Toss Across.
Readers win big with goodie bags stuffed full of books, along with various giveaways too. Several authors offered free eBook downloads. Some publishers gave discounted prices on books for those who were buying. Once again, registration provided you with a $10 gift card to use at the on site barnes and Noble book store. It doesn't get much better than that for a reader.
