Welcome to UtopYA from your armchair. This series of posts (posted over the next 14 days) is designed to give you folks back here in the U.K a little taster of the UtopYA Author & Reader Con  experience. It's also a chance for you to get to know some of the authors and to pick up some gorgeous swag and freebies. As well as posting live from the event (prepare yourself for selfie-madness) there will be virtual tables set up here on the blog.

The following amazing authors have signed up to take part in this virtual con. Jolene Buchheit, Kelly Risser, Kallie Ross, Rachael Brown, C.J.Pinard, Jo Michaels, N.L.Green, Amy Evans, Michele G. Miller, Chris Cannon, Sharon Rose Mayes, Amy Leigh Strickland, Brenda Hiatt, Catherine Stine, Natasha Hanova, K.D.Wood, Shawn McGuire, Liz Long and Elizabeth Sharp, Vanessa Kimball and Me, Katie M John

Each of these authors has offered some of the swag from their stall to put into one of Three U.K Swag bags. I shall be lugging a full suitcase of goodies back by the looks of it.

Each Swag bag will contain a random (but equally distributed) selection of items from the UtopYA conference. The items on the Rafflecopter giveaway are a very strong indicator of what may be included, but it isn't a 100% guarantee; think of it more like a lucky dip. What I can tell you is that the three gift bags are going to be truly swagtastic; the authors have been truly generous.

The plan is that two authors will be featured a day starting on Monday of this week and it will run for a fortnight. The Rafflecopter entry form will be attached to each  virtual stand, giving you  a chance to get lots of entries into the proverbial hat.

Good Luck and I hope you enjoy meeting these fabulous authors and their works as much as I do.
