I’m back from the RWA conference and EXHAUSTED! But it was SO good to see everyone, take in some workshops, sign some books, do some volunteering, and, well, drink some wine at the end of the day.
I’ve posted a few pics that I’ve received from friends – I’ll confess that I’m terrible at remembering to take pictures! – over at the Chocolate Box today. One of them was kind of a dream come true. You’ll understand when you see it.
Now it’s back to situation normal – as normal as it gets here in the summer time. The weeds are growing faster than the vegetables, I’ve got a TON of work and the rain is finally clearing so staying put at my desk is going to take some extra willpower.
I’m heading to New York tomorrow for the Romance Writers of America annual conference. Yep – a couple of thousand romance writers all congregated together in Times Square. Should be a time.
Every year I have a “focus” of what I want to accomplish at conference. This year it’s education and “citizenship”. I’m doing some volunteering with event set-up and also moderating workshops, and helping with the PAN retreat on Friday as part of the PAN Conference committee. I’ve also penciled in workshops I want to attend, a meet up with my agent and dinner with friends, since we only see each other once a year at best. My roomie, Fiona Harper, was last at conference in 2012. I can’t wait to see her again.
The conference is closed to the public except for one very special event that happens on Wednesday. Here are the details! I’ll be there signing books…along with nearly 500 of my colleagues.
