We’re running TWO contests to celebrate the Smutketeers’ appearance at the Romantic Times Convention in Columbus, Ohio, coming right up! One special giveaway for those attending the Convention, and another great giveaway for those who can’t make it.
We’ll all be there April 27-May 2.
Be photographed with the Smutketeers!
For those of you who will be attending the Romantic Times Convention this year we’re having a very exciting contest! On Friday, April 30th from 11:00AM to 12:00PM The Smutketeers will be meeting readers at Club RT-come and say hello, if you can. We’ll be in full Steampunk gear, so you can’t miss us. Club RT will have a drawing for an awesome basket full of Smutketeers books and other amazing goodies, including an exclusive Smutketeers T-shirt, so be sure to drop into Club RT to enter! But we’re doing something really special…Friday is the day of our next Smutketeer photo shoot. Have you seen our photo gallery? If not, you should browse through! We got together in the middle of the Nevada desert nearly two years ago, with a 7 foot long sofa, our costumes, and two photographers. But it’s been way too long, so it’s well past time for some new pics-and you could be part of the shoot! If you’ll be at RT, just enter by emailing me with your name and cell phone number by Sunday, April 25th at: email@example.com, or come by our table during our Club RT hour. One lucky winner will be dressed in Steampunk style and be photographed with us!

There are a few limitations, so be prepared for this awesome opportunity:
You must be reachable by cell phone at precisely 12:00PM on Friday, April 30th, and ready to meet us in the lobby of the convention hotel at 12:30 sharp to get into costume (we have various pieces in different sizes. Or, if you’re already a Steampunk fan, you’re welcome to bring your own costume). If your name is drawn and you don’t answer your phone, we will immediately choose another name. You must be available at 12:30 to be dressed and photographed for approximately 1 hour.
Entry in this contest constitutes permission to use your image on The Smutkleteers blog-the winner’s picture will be posted here as soon as we’ve recovered from RT. Fun!
We have a few other events planned for RT:
~We’ll all be signing our books at the Book Faire on Saturday, May 1st (and you don’t have to register for the convention to attend-if you’re local, come on by!).
~The Smutketeers will be giving a workshop, along with Samhain managing editor Laurie M. Rauch. ‘Sextopia: Writing Sex Scenes Across the Ages and Genres’ will be presented on Thursday, April 29th at 10:00AM.
~Crystal and Eden will be on several other panels, so be sure to check your RT schedule when you arrive!
The winner of the RT photo shoot contest will be announced here as soon as we have computer access after the drawing!
Win a basket of e-books!
We wouldn’t leave out those of you who won’t be at RT, of course, so we’re also running a contest for everyone right here! Enter to win a copy of one e-book from each of us from our Samhain or Ellora’s Cave backlists-that’s one e-book each from R.G., Feisty, Crystal and Eden of your choice. You can browse our websites to see our book lists. To win, just post here and let us know which of our Samhain or Ellora’s Cave back list titles (that means books that have already been released) you’d like from each of us. A winner will be chosen and announced here after we return from RT-we should be recovered from our post-convention hangovers by May 5th. We hope. :)
Meanwhile-we have an awesome interview coming up on April 20th over on the Steamed blog! The Steamed Lolitas were kind enough to let us babble at them…uh…interview us, mostly about our upcoming Wasteland Continuity Series coming out from Samhain in May. Be sure to visit us over there on April 20th!
Stay tuned for more exciting news about our upcoming Wasteland series, photos from the RT Convention and other smutty fun!
All for Smut and Smut for All!
