RAI Tees + Totes


Totes and tees, hooray! Just got these in yesterday and thrilled with how pretty they are in person. T-shirts (black with light purple, sizes S-XXL) will sell for $10 at the registration table while the first 100 readers in the door get a free tote bag!!

RAI#2017 Button



Liz, Laura, and Tobi would like to thank everyone who participated in Roanoke Author Invasion 2016. To the authors, readers, volunteers, moms who chauffeur, hotel staff, and local media: YOU are why this event was such a smashing success in only its 2nd year. With over 200 attendees, we overheard many authors comment¬†they sold out of particular titles. We already can’t wait for 2017 (and know you want details, too!), but stay tuned as we take a quick breather and then start organizing the details.

Thank you to Suzanne Wardle at the Roanoke Times for her terrific coverage. THIS ARTICLE appeared on their website AND in the Sunday (Easter) paper! She also posted a PHOTO GALLERY after seeing the fun for herself.

WDBJ7 surprised us with a visit, interviewing Liz and capturing a bit of the event to feature on the evening news! See the interview HERE.

And thank you so much to Nadege Richards for her after-party photos! Here is a great group shot. Please see our Facebook page as we share out more of the fun.
