Back from the RT Convention

by on May.07, 2013, under Conference news

I just got back from the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Kansas City, where a snow storm hit just as the e-book Expo began. I want to thank all the readers who stopped by to say hello–I had a great time meeting you!

Book Signing

by on Jun.08, 2012, under Conference news

Courtesy of a very thoughtful person (thanks, Kathy!) here’s a picture of me at the Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together, signing Ruined by Rumor posters. I don’t usually wear glasses except for reading and signing, but I think they make me look rather writerly in this case. ūüėČ

Spring Fling Conference

by on Apr.26, 2012, under Conference news

I’m heading to Chicago today for the Spring Fling Writers’ Conference. I’ll be at the book signing in the main ballroom on Saturday, April 28. Unfortunately the problems at Dorchester mean I won’t have any copies of A Tryst With Trouble to sign, but I will have postcards from Carina for Ruined by Rumor, and there’s a coupon on the back for a book discount. Do stop by–I’d love to see you there!

Busman’s holiday

by on Jun.25, 2011, under Conference news

I’m off soon for the 2011 RWA (Romance Writers of America) Conference, to be held this year in New York City. ¬†It’s a huge conference with some 2,100 attendees: ¬†agents, editors, aspiring writers, and published authors. ¬†Inevitably, 99.9% ¬†of the attendees will be female; the occasional male editor or agent must find the estrogen levels dizzying.

This will be my third conference, and I look forward all year to attending. ¬†It’s energizing to have a break from the daily distractions of laundry, cooking, and playing fetch with the dog, though of course I’ll miss my husband and kids like mad. ¬†The conference lectures and workshops always provide valuable advice on writing-related topics, from craft to career planning. ¬†(I bow down to the presenter who taught me last year how to write a concise synopsis.) ¬†The publisher who’s offered for my second regency has invited me to a cocktail party to meet their writers and editors. ¬†I even have an appointment to pitch to an agent. ¬†But, on a more basic level, it’s a simple joy to be around so many like-minded people: ¬†dyed-in-the-wool romantics who fret about conflict and motivation, battle writer’s block, and refer to the characters in their head as if they’re real people.

This year I’ll get to spend face time with two of my Seattle-based critique partners, and I’ll have two upcoming releases to strategize about. ¬†Who knows, I may even catch a show and try some real New York pizza while I’m at it. ¬†But I absolutely, positively have to add at least twenty pages to my work-in-progress while I’m gone. ¬†Because, you know, romances don’t write themselves.
