Look Who’s Going to RT: Andrew Shaffer

Can you introduce yourself to my readers?

Although I’m an aspiring romance novelist, I am a published non-fiction author: Harper Perennial published my debut, “Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love,” as a trade paperback original earlier this year. It’s a light, humorous read look at the love lives of some of the smartest men and women in history, and, as a bonus, doesn’t require a specialized degree to understand. I’m also the creative director of Order of St. Nick, the greeting card company whose irreverent cards have been featured on “The Colbert Report,” NPR, and FOX News.

Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?

I haven’t created a fictional world to share with readers…yet.

Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran?  Any advice for those who are going for the first time?

Last year was my first RT. I arrived in Columbus as an aspiring romance writer, and left as a former Mr. Romance contestant. How that happened is a story for another day! This year, I will be a member of the Faery Court at the annual Faery Ball. My advice to first-timers is to get a room at the hotel where the convention is held, because if you have to commute, you’re bound to miss some of the action.

Are you speaking on any panels during RT?  Are there any you are looking forward to?  What panels are you planning on attending?

I’ll be speaking on the Social Networking For Dummies panel with Danielle Barclay, Kristen Lamb, and Nicole Peeler, where you’ll be able to “learn how to effectively use tools like Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs and other online communities like Shelfari and Goodreads.” And last year I had a lot of fun at the Wild & Wacky Party, so I hope to make it back there.

If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?

The guy with the heart-shaped glasses.
