Come and join us for all the fun planned at #RTC2017.

This year we have a choice of dinner or non dinner tickets for those who feel a buffet style meal won’t work for them. We also have discounts on groups of tickets being bought. Please keep in mind, that those attending the event are responsible for their own: transportation, meals, accommodations, and other amenities they might require. You do NOT have to stay at the hotel for the event. So long as you are registered, you can participate in everything.

PLEASE NOTE: While authors are more than welcome to register to attend as a reader, they are NOT allowed to sell books or forcibly promote themselves. If you did not make the author list but wish to donate something then RTC will gladly accept gift basket donations. Thank you in advance for respecting the sponsoring authors who have spent a lot of their hard earned royalties and time on making the event memorable for readers.
