So, I’m in San Diego, attending my first ever Romance Writers of America conference.
These guys know how to do an event up BIG. There are more than 2000 Romance writers [and probably a few other hangers-on like myself] at this conference. The city is amazing, everyone has been lovely and I just watched the amazing Beverly Jenkins knock everyone dead with her keynote speech. [This is the second keynote I’ve heard from Beverly. She is nothing short of awesome as a speaker. She educates me, uplifts me as a writer and she makes me laugh AND cry every time.]
I’m not a romance writer, but my agent lives in this city, my editor came for this event, and I see this as a chance to learn from a wonderful and diverse group of other writers. [Also? Apart from a few meetings, signings and parties I’m supposed to attend — no organization required!]
If you follow me on twitter, FB or Instagram, you’ll see a few of the shots I’ve taken while around town.
I have a signing tomorrow afternoon from 1-2:30 pm in the Marriot ballroom, but apart from that, my plans are to drink in the atmosphere, learn as much as I can, and enjoy this pretty city. If you are nearby, come say hello!
