A Very Special Contest!

This is a week of contests and now I have one more…!

This is a big contest is for all my friends who love to read as much as I do!   We’ve all heard of conferences that are just for writers, but there’s a new one that’s geared just for readers and I’d love to send one of you to it this August with a friend.

RomCon is a FAN convention hosted in Denver, CO and dedicated to avid readers of Romance and Women’s Fiction.  It’s 3 days of enormous fun with your reader friends, new friends you make along the way and some of your favorite authors too!

At RomCon readers have the opportunity to mingle and socialize with others who love books as much as they do.  Authors host teas and parties, chat on panels to talk about hot heroes, characters, solve murder mysteries and everything and anything else.  There will be over 80 different fun events this year with lots of open dialogue with readers and bloggers and tons of free swag and books!

I know this is something my readers would enjoy and  so I’m teaming up with Lee Hyat from AuthorSoundRelations.com to bring you this special contest!  On July 21st I’m giving away 2 tickets to RomCon 2011 along with two nights at the conference hotel in Denver.  The winner will also receive a tote bag full of books, goodies and gift cards!  The convention dates are August 5th – 7th this year so if you’re looking for a chance to get away for a few days next month, this is your chance!

For an opportunity to win this trip, just leave a comment on my blog and then head over to Author Sound Relations and fill out the official entrance form.

Lee will draw and announce the winner’s name on Thursday, July 21st.  Learn more about RomCon 2011 visit www.romconinc.com.

Good luck, get entered, and have fun!

  26. Sounds like tons of fun. It’s nice to know that there are conventions like this one for readers. What a great idea.

    If I win I’ll joggle the whole thing about being a Mother and leaving my two beatifull twins at home with their daddy for a couple of days 🙂

    Thanks for throughing fun contests our way.

  27. Hi Jane,

    Thanks for giving your readers a chance to win such an awesome contest!!! The conference sounds like so much fun. I have never been to Denver. For someone who is an avid reader this would be paradise. Good luck to everyone!!

  28. This is such a wonderful event. I would love, just love to attend with my daughter who is an avid reader. What a great contest! Thank you once again Jane for offering a great opportunity.

  30. Oh, me, me, please pick me! I love RomCon and I love Denver. You are so incredible Jane and so very generous to your fans. It was great to see you in NYC and thanks again for a fantastic dinner.

  31. Oooh! Crossing my fingers! I’d love to go, but just can’t afford the admission! Very excited, thanks for the opportunity!

  32. It sounds like a great time. I’m even on vacation that week so I could go without missing work! Either way, I’ll be working on my TBR pile during that week!

  33. Hmmmmm, I’ve only been to the Denver airport. It would be nice to see a little more of the state. It would be even nicer to see you!

  34. Jane it sounds like to me you have the dilemma of the all american woman. WE all are pushed for time. WE feel extremely guilty when we have to prioritize work over family. Every minute you spend with family and friends are precious. Just dig in and get the job done. Celebrate with your family and friends your acomplishments!
    It’s very generous of you to offer this wonderful trip, who ever wins will be over the moom I’m sure! Good luck to all! ;>))

  37. Well, Sounds Like quite an awesome event in, what i imagine is a beatiful location. What a blessing to whoever gets to go. I’ve Read all of your books except eyes on the eyes. Loved them all. Cant wait to read eyes on the eyes, and a dark sicilian secret.

  38. Hi Jane,
    I would love to attend this wonderful event! Are you planning to have another reader meeting in Denver? I’d love to join you!

  39. I have and will always be a READER of romance, but as most of my friends here on Facebook know I am an aspiring AUTHOR as well. The opportunity to mingle with readers and authors sounds fantastic! It will be a blast for some lucky person.

  40. I found your blog via a post on FB at Romance Book Sluts page. I have been a reader for years, but would love to be inspired to write! I would love to go to RomCon!

  41. Jane,

    I have read all of the Odd Mom out books plus quite a few others and I have loved them all. I grew up in Medina and get a kick out of how you really have the characters down. My mom met you at Overlake last winter when you hosted a lunch that some fans purchased at an auction. She said you were lovely and really enjoyed chatting with you becuase she is a big fan as well. I hear you are moving, good luck.

  42. What a wonderful opportunity for someone, I never win anything, but sure would love the bag of books!!

  43. You had me at “Flirting With Forty.” It remains at the top of my list of Chick Lit and helped me believe that romance can and does happen to women over forty. I didn’t meet my Prince until I was 42! Thank you for all you do!

  44. I have been to several Romance conventions in Atlanta, but that’s as far as I’ve traveled. Thanks for the opportunity.

  45. Would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! I have never been to Denver or RomCon – what a great way to experience both! Such a generous gift that would be gladly enjoyed – and a late birthday one at that – just turned 50 this month!!! 🙂 Yes, I’m shameless!!!

  46. Sounds so fun! I met you at Third Place Books when you discussed and signed “She’s Gone Country” (I got to have dinner with you and Lee, just the three of us). You both kicked my butt (figuratively, of course) about writing and no more excuses… Thank you! Hope you’re having a great summer — I expect Denver will be warmer and sunnier than here! 😉 Safe travels!

  47. Hi Jane! It’s so nice of you to let us know about the contest. I just finished reading “She’s Gone Country” and although a different theme from your other books, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you. 🙂

  48. Wow I have never been to a conference like this and it would be so much fun I am in the middle of dental work but I dont care i will go like this wouldnt miss it for the world…wow thank you

  49. What a fantastic giveaway. I would love to go!! I went to a Romantic Times Convention in Houston about 7 years ago and loved it.


  50. The RomCon trip sounds like lots of fun.

    I love to read and always read your books!

    Looking for more to show up on NookColor to download from B&N site!

  51. Jane, what a great opportunity you are providing for the lucky winner! Thanks, too, for all the wonderful hours of reading you have given me!

  54. Hi Jane,
    The last conference I went to was a mathematics conference for Drury University. As awesome as that was…I can’t begin to even imagine what fun it would be to attend a conference that is geared specifically for avid book readers. Then to top it all off…in such a wonderful location.

    I love your work, your website, as well as you inspiration. Keep up the great work.

  55. What a great prize. I just went to RWA in New York last month and had an amazing time. I bought so many books and got to meet all my favorite authors and some amazing readers too!!! I didn’t even mind waiting on line for 1 1/2 hours. I would love a chance to win this…
    Have a great day!

  56. I go to Malice Domestic, a convention for fans of the traditional mystery, and have a fantastic time. This convention sounds like just as much fun.

  57. I can’t think of a better escape than a good book and friends to share it with. READ ON!

  58. Wow this is so nice of you. I always knew that romance writers
    where a great bunch of people, this
    only goes to show you I was right. LOL I have been a reader of romances for more years than I care to admit. 🙂 Your stories gives the average people a chance to visit other times and places and maybe just lose ourselves for awhile from every day life. Thanks for hosting this giveaway. It would be really nice to have a mini vacation right about now.

  59. Thank you, This is an awesome opportunity. I would love to attend this con. You Rock

  64. Wow, what a great offer for a prize. This would be soooooo awesome to win. Thank YOU for having such a spectacular idea. Hope your summer is going well despite this weeks massive temps & humidity (not my favorite the humidity, it just seems to suck the energy & life out of me…guess it is the Swedish, Russian & Germanic genetics that lean towards the cooler less humid climes…the Indian genetics can’t compete with the other 3/4)…. Happy summer to you,

    Michelle B. aka Koshkalady
