Love Letter Convention in Berlin, June 2 and 3, 2012.
For a few years now, I have read the stories from fellow bloggers and authors about the famous conventions in America. Romantic Times, Authors after Dark, Comic Cons, you name it. Wishing to go one day, but unfortunately, for me it is too expensive to go and especially to stay in America.
But now, there is finally a small convention in Europe! In Berlin, Germany, and that is only a 6 hour drive away from where I live in Holland. So, I am going! With some of my book friends and of course my best friend and fellow booklover/bookaddict Freya! We are going to have so much fun there!
So, who are we going to meet? What do you think when I tell you: Nalini Singh, Lara Adrian, Maya Banks, Larissa Ione, Lisa Marie Rice, Shannon McKenna and Bella Andre.
And some German authors, but unfortunately, I don’t read German (nor speak it very well as it has been so many years since I finished highschool), so I don’t know their books.
Here is a link to the convention site, it is in German though.
The admission fee is very reasonable, so when we found out about this, we immediately ordered tickets. The anticipation has been building for months now, and the time is almost there.
The convention will take the whole weekend, with lectures and Q&A sessions, and I am certain it will be lots of fun. We are going to meet some other bookbloggers and booklovers I only know thanks to the Internet. Freya and I will be staying in Berlin from Wednesday till Monday, in the Ibis Hotel Berlin Spandau, which is very close to the convention center.
I am Aurian, I am a 40 year old Dutch woman, and I am a bookaddict. As you have found this blogpost, this is my blog, and you are welcome here. My Twitter name is xAurianx.
My best friend is Freya, she is a 42 year old Dutch woman, and she is also crazy about books (and she knows German! which means she will be the official interpreter for the Dutch fans). She only blogs in Dutch, but her blog is www.boekenlijstjes.blogspot.com. She is not on Twitter, but perhaps you all will persuade her to join the fun.
So, tell me, are you going? Share with us where you are from, and if you have a blog we can visit, or a Twitter name, so we can become acquainted ahead of time. Do you know other people who are going? Send them all over and lets have a great time in Berlin :)
