Para-RT13 with Chloe Neill

Monday, April 22, 2013

Introduce Yourself to our readers
Hi, everyone! I'm Chloe Neill, the author of the urban fantasy Chicagoland Vampires novels and the YA Dark Elite novels. My eighth Chicagoland Vampires novel, BITING BAD, will be coming out in August.

 Is this your first RT convention?
This is my second RT convention--my sophomore year, I guess. I also attended last year, and had an absolute blast!

What are you most looking forward to at RT?
I have a full-time day job, and I don't live near many romance or urban fantasy authors (at least as far as I'm aware). So RT is really a unique opportunity for me to commiserate with other writers, vent, and feel like a "normal" writer.

 If you've been to one before any tips for us newbies?
Ha! Lots of tips! Bring comfortable shoes and extra tote bag to carry around your conference goodies. And in that tote,consider also having: a bottle of water water; a granola bar or other snack; a pen and notepad (autographs!); lotion and lip balm; tissues. Hand sanitizer also isn't a bad idea if you want to avoid travel bugs.Also, take the opportunity to say hello to authors. You'll recognize them by the flowers on their badges. Most are more than happy to chat, and some (including me!) will have swag (buttons, pens, etc.) for the asking!

Where can we find you at RT? Are you on any panels going to any parties etc?
I'll be arriving on Thursday night and leaving Sunday morning, and attending panels during that period. You can also find my panel schedule here:

If we seen you at the bar what drink would be in your hand?
Water or Diet Coke. I'm not a drinker, except for Diet Coke. Which I love.

 How are you traveling to RT? Where are you coming from? Any interesting hiccups?
I'm driving, as RT's about three hours from my home in Nebraska. Having my car allows me to bring lots of swag, and possibly baked goods for panels. :)



About Chloe Neill

When not transcribing Merit’s and Lily’s adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys–her favorite landscape photographer/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout.
