What is Roanoke Author Invasion?

RAI is a family-friendly book signing featuring authors of multiple genres, including Young Adult, fantasy, paranormal, contemporary romance and more. Based in Roanoke, VA, this annual event connects authors with readers as they sell their books and give away swag, freebies, and more.

When is RAI2020?

We’ll celebrate 6 years of RAI fun on April 4, 2020, with our signing  from 10a-2p at the Holiday Inn Tanglewood.

Who can attend?

Anyone! This is a FREE event for readers and we highly encourage you to attend to learn about great new books, get quality time with authors, and enjoy a high-energy event with fun and friends. (Plan ahead and get your free Eventbrite ticket here.)

How can I learn more about joining as an author?

This event is for currently published authors. We are currently sold out of tables. However, we do have a waitlist offered in order by sign-up date. Our interest form can be filled out from the form on our Facebook page.

What genres are accepted as an RAI signing author?

We are open to many genres, but please note this is primarily marketed as a Young Adult, fantasy and contemporary fiction event. We get dozens of teens and young readers through the doors looking for those genres and want to offer them quality reads. (Sorry, but no erotica or non-fiction allowed. It’s great if you read or write it, but this isn’t the event for you!)

Can I volunteer?

Yes! You can contact our volunteer coordinator to learn more about helping out at RAI at roanokeauthorinvasion@gmail.com

Do you have a Facebook page so I can keep up on social media?

Yep! You can visit our Facebook page here.

    I would love to sign up as an author, even if this means being on a waiting list. My name is Melody Choplin writing under the name ML Nystrom. I have five releases at this time with more to come. My main genre is MC and Contemporary Romance.
