Cannes-Can’s Corner

Well, Reading Until Dawn Con has come, and gone. Amidst the whirlwind of booze, book talk, booze, games, booze, more book talk, and let’s not forget the booze that was RUDC17, I even managed to keep my pants on. Though, if I’m being honest, I didn’t start with pants, so that might have had something to do with it.

Just as I did for RUDC‘s inaugural year, I left exhausted in the most wonderful way. On Sunday, while I rested Pickles and reflected on what it is that makes RUDC so special– Pickles is my liver– it occurred to me that the thing I enjoy most isn’t the swag, the games, or even the copious amounts of alcohol, it’s being in the space of people like me. rudc17, reading until dawn con, roselynn cannes, louise belcher costumePeople who love words and escaping to other worlds as much as I do. People who understand what I mean when I talk about the voices in my head. (Don’t worry, they don’t talk to me, just each other). People who fan so hard that they share my oddly specific knowledge of [insert obsession of choice here].

While I’m usually completely content with my own company (I’m never really alone; I have the voices), sometimes it’s fun to make obscure references I don’t have to explain; and it’s always nice not to feel like a raving lunatic when conversation turns to [again, insert obsession of choice here]; and, frankly, not all of my nearest and dearest share my zeal for Harry Potter (hard to believe, I know), but that’s just the way of it… Okay, my whole family loves Harry Potter (the books, not the movies) so that was a bad example; however, if you’ve ever been with a group of people who didn’t get it when you asked if they thought Trump’s hair was a horcrux, then you know what I’m talking about. You need to be around your people every once in a while.

My new marketing guru, Jennie Marts, talks about finding your tribe. I’ve never had a tribe. Partners in crime, sure, but never a tribe. I suppose that’s what RUDC is for me: the tribe I never knew I wanted.

It Comes in a Tank Top

Facebooktwitterreddittumblr

reading until dawn con, rudc17, tank top, larissa ioneApril showers bring May flowers. And what do Mayflowers bring? Author-Reader Cons! (Or something like that).

Anyhoo, Reading Until Dawn Con is fast approaching and shirts are now available. This year my prayers were answered: it comes in a tank top. Amen-hallelujah! You bet your ass I already got mine. Now it’s your turn. If tank tops aren’t your thing, it’s also available in men’s and women’s t-shirts. No matter which style blows your dress up, get yours here.

In related news, did you know that you can help determine which games we play at RUDC this year? (Probably not because I never finished that post). Well, you can and your feedback is encouraged. And let’s be honest, as long as drinking is involved and I’m not required to wear pants, I’ll probably be into it. Check out RUDC‘s list of prospective games or suggest your own, just get involved. For full details, see RUDC’s official post Help Pick the Games for RUDC17.

See where else you can stalk me (online or in person) so we can share our mutual love for gin and lament over our mutual disdain for pants. Love your collective faces (you know, figuratively) my delightful Cannes-Cans!

It’s Game Time: Reading Until Dawn Con 2017

Facebooktwitterreddittumblr

rudc15, rudc, reading until dawn con, featured author, roselynn cannesHappy Wednesday my delightful Cannes-Cans! I have some super exciting news: you can win a paid registration for Reading Until Dawn Con (RUDC) and come party with me!!! Squeeeeeeeeee!

Casey Harris-Parks announced the giveaway during a book chat with Tamara from Shelf Addiction. Listen to the podcast here to get pumped for RUDC and get your instructions for contest entry.

RUDC17 will be held Saturday, June 3rd in Denver, and it’s a little different than other cons. When I say a little, I mean a lot different. Rather than discussion panels and classes, RUDC has games and booze. This is so my kind of con. Oh, and did I mention that the fabulous Larissa Ione is emceeing this event? Are you freaking kidding me?! She’s not even my usual genre, but she’s fantastic! I think I love her. I mean that in a totally platonic, not creepy at all kind of way.

I Miss My Long Hair

Facebooktwitterreddittumblr

About a year ago I had the opportunity to do an author interview with the fantastic Aaron Michael Ritchey and Cody May for a Colorado Author Interview series. The videos are officially up! If you ignore the fact that all my dates are completely wrong, I actually did a pretty good job staying focused during this interview for a change (mostly). Go me! I hope you all enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed filming it!

You can see the updated news for my Fallen and Game of Thorns series(es) by following the links On My Nightstand (or just clicking the links I included in this post). And don’t forget to check out the rest of the author videos from this series here.

I do Love Me a Pants Off Dance Off

reading until dawn con, rudc, author reader con, roselynn cannes, no to pants, pants are overrated, pants off dance off

Ooh baby! Ooooh baby!!! Get excited party people, it’s about to be on like Donkey Kong. Reading Until Dawn Con 2017 is officially happening and yours truly is definitely going to be there. One of the things that makes RUDC so unique is the unfettered access to authors: “Anyone can go to any author/reader/writer conference and listen to their favorite author talk about writing. But how many can say that they hung out with their favorite author? Not many. RUDC will be all about hanging out, playing games, and having fun.” – RUDC

We’re losing the barriers, and possibly our pants. Registration is open, but space is limited, so be sure to get yours while the gettin’ is good. And, Cannes-Cans, I expect you to be the rowdiest in the room (in a good way, of course).

Reading Until Dawn Con will be held June 3, 2017 in Denver, CO. Register here and share a gin with me 😉

A Day in the Life: My Writing Process

Facebooktwitterreddittumblr

Writing can be grueling, but probably not for the reasons you think. Check out this never before seen sneak peek into my writing process and learn why it really takes me so long to get anything done.

P.S. I actually go through an extremely similar process when I stream, for any of my Twitch fans wondering why I’m not live more often.

Basically, I Have No Idea What I’m Doing

Facebooktwitterreddittumblr

Hey there, party people! What better way to christen the new website than a video. During my live interview with Shelf Addiction, I endeavored to answer the tough questions, and I did so with all the effectiveness of Peter Griffin attempting to tackle the greased up deaf guy at a picnic if I do say so myself.

Why do I hate pants? Because they’re the worst.

How difficult is it to do research for my books? We’ll never know. Much like my research habits, I followed my rapidly derailed train of thought right down the rabbit hole.

What would I say to convince readers to give my books a shot? Not only did I likely deter a whole subset of potential readers, I suspect I crushed the hopes and dreams of many of my current readers. #winning

Clearly I nailed it. Still, this seems like the perfect opportunity to adopt my softball team’s motto: Win or lose, we booze! Say it with me now: Win or lose, we booze! Win or lose, we booze!

Check out the full video to see me in all my ridiculous glory.

Do you have a question you wish I’d answer? Don’t hesitate to ask; I love being the center of attention.
