Romance Trading Cards!

Greetings, reader minions!

I'm getting set to venture forth to the RWA National Conference in New York City (departure in T-minus eight hours!). The last few days have been packed with my usual last minute shopping frenzy as I cram a year of purchases into seventy two hours. I also got my very first ever pedicure. Do you like those? I wasn't really expecting to love it but the experience was soooo relaxing. I might become a spa convert yet... though my pretty manicure is making me nervous of chipping a nail as I type - excellent reason not to have a pretty manicure, but it's fun to have hands that look like they belong to someone older than a five year old for a change. (My hands are freakishly small. Seriously. I could be a sideshow act.)

Many awesome things will be happening at conference (Broadway! Broadway!) and I will be signing books and chatting with readers at both Samhain signing (next Friday 3pm) and the RWA Literacy event. The massive Literacy signing is Tuesday afternoon at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square and open to the public if you live in the area (technically also open to the public if you don't live in the area, but kinda expensive once you factor in plane fare...). All your favorite romance authors in ONE ROOM. (Don't worry, it's a BIG room.) Come for the books, come for the authors, come for the trading cards!

That's right, boys and girls. For those of you who haven't already heard, the newest trend (which I kinda love) is collectible romance trading cards. Visit the website to see the bevy of awesome and collect them all.

I have three available at the Literacy Signing - where the Rubies will also be having a scavenger hunt & giving away a gift card to someone who collects a certain set of cards.










Here are mine.




What do you think? (And if you think Zoe's looks a little different than the one I previewed here, you're right. I changed it up because it was bugging me.)

And if you won't be at conference (oh, the sadness!) you can still collect them. Just email me (vivi AT viviandrews DOT com) with your snail mail address and the number of my cards you would like and I will send them off to you. Sound good?
