Readers Take Denver 2023!

Earlier this month, Tee, her daughter, Keeley and our managing director Kellie, made their way over to Denver for the Readers Take Denver long weekend. They thought they were in for a normal signing with some low key events in between but boy, were. they. wrong!

It was 4 days of absolute chaos – chaos in the best way! Parties, movie screenings, tattoos and oxygen bars – it was all happening!

The first night of the event was the Welcome Party. Tee got to meet some of her beautiful readers and mingle with the other attending authors.

It was a rough start to the event with the three ladies experiencing terrible altitude sickness! They even had to unfortunately miss the Passionflix screening of Secret Life of Amy Benson by Lisa Renee Jones on the second night. Thank god for oxygen bars! Tee got to later hang out at one and take in all the oxygen with two of her readers, Brenda and Elizabeth – check out the pic below! You’d never see something like this in our little part of Australia!

Day two involved an afternoon signing. We can’t believe how many readers travelled far and wide to attend and how patiently they waited in line for HOURS – you will never know how much Tee truly appreciates every single one of you!!

The next day was spent signing and meeting more of the readers in the morning. We can’t believe some of the gifts and creative signing material you guys came up with. So talented and thoughtful!

Saturday afternoon was the Margarita Party and holy smokes! Tee thought she’d have 5 people turn up – she was gobsmacked at the turn out! The crowd even managed to do the impossible – they got her talking on a microphone!! Thank you to everyone who attended for spending an incredible night listening to Q&A’s whilst sipping on some yummy margaritas.

We HAVE to thank Maggie Cole (@maggiecoleauthor), Torie Peters (@torie_talks_books) and Brittany (@brittsbookishvibe) for all their help with running this event. We could not have done it without you and we are SO thankful! You girls are the BEST!

After the Margarita party was over, the ladies attended a screening of Passionflix’s Afterburn/Aftershock by Slyvia Day. What a feeling it must be to see your characters and story up on the big screen and brought to life.

Wrapping up the event was the Voodoo Donut Party which Tee got to host with Sylvia Day and Piper James. There were so many delicious donuts and Tee had an incredible experience being onstage alongside these two inspiring authors.

We want to thank Lisa, Jess and Emily for all their hard work in putting together this amazing event. What a huge success it was – you ladies should be so proud of yourselves! We can’t wait to be back next year and Tee is so grateful to have been invited along. Your organisation, communication and creativity was unmatched!!

Thank you also to Brittany (Bee) who was one of the girls dedicated to helping Tee in her signing room. You were so wonderful to work with and the team appreciate everything you did to make things easier for us!

Tee can’t wait to visit Denver again next year and hopes to reunite with you all and see some beautiful new faces.
