JustRead Rendezvous Takeover Blitz

Welcome to the Takeover Blitz for JustRead Rendezvous, hosted, sponsored, and organized by JustRead Publicity Tours! I shared with y’all back in July about this reader-author event, and I’ve been spotlighting the THIRTY AUTHORS (yay!) every week in my First Line Friday & Weekly Update posts. But I wanted to extend a personal invitation to each one of you, my dear blog readers – I would love for you to register now for the JustRead Rendezvous so we can meet in person! You are a big part of why this blog is so fun for me, and I’d love to thank you in person!

YOU are Invited:

 

JustRead Rendezvous
November 16-17, 2023
Holiday Inn St Louis SW – Route 66

Join fellow readers and authors at the inaugural JustRead Rendezvous to celebrate Christian fiction and sweet reads with food, games, giveaways, and books. This event aims to sweeten reading and storytelling experiences with fellowship and encouragement and is modeled after Christian Fiction Readers Retreat. Friday’s activities will include speaker sessions, author panels, small group discussions, and author signings.

On Thursday evening, JustRead is hosting a Meet and Greet and Watch Party for The Christy Award Winners Gala webcast. The Christy Award honors and promotes excellence in Christian fiction and is a program of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. Additional Rendezvous event sponsors include Baker Publishing Group fiction divisions (Bethany House Publishers and Revell), Kregel Publications, and Ambassador International.

    Would love to go but can’t afford to go at this time, as I have other more important things and expenses that have to come first at this time.

  2. Winnie Thomas

    This sounds like so much fun! I’d love to see you again my dear BFFFC! Also, Beth and some of my author friends! I don’t think I’ll make it this time.

  3. I’d love to plan for this one year in the future! I just don’t have enough time to get resources together this year, and we’d already planned travel to see family for the Thanksgiving holiday. So the budget and time off work do not allow for two trips that close together, alas.
