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 will have our signing interest form up on our Facebook page as soon as we open it to the public on July 1st. Please note tables fill up quickly, and we do have a waitlist offered in order by sign-up date.
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!)
