Off to RWA National

When you read this, I will most likely either be on an Amtrak train to San Diego, or I'll already be there.  That's where the Romance Writers of America's National Conference is this year, with some events starting today.  Since I live in L.A., the train seems a good way to get there.  We'll see!

I always enjoy RWA National.  I get to go to the librarian and book seller's tea, attend the Literacy Signing where local readers can come and buy books and meet the authors, attend workshops, and have fun at Harlequin's party!  This year I'm also getting to sign my August release COVERT ALLIANCE, a Harlequin Romantic Suspense novel, at the Harlequin signing event, plus attend some other workshops Harlequin is giving, mostly for its authors.  In addition, I'll be meeting with some other writers and writing professionals.  I'm not on a panel this year, unfortunately, but I'll still have a good time.

That's both a good thing and a not so good thing about writing in more than one genre.  I could be attending conferences nearly all the time--and kind of do!

Anyway, if I learn anything especially noteworthy I'll include it here next week.

Meantime, my writing is being put on hold but I'll at least bring part of what I'm currently working on to edit in the event I find a few minutes between other stuff I'm doing.  I'll miss my pups, but I know they'll be getting good care since my husband will still be around.

I always found RWA National to be an exciting event. I hope you have a great time.
