RWA Nationals Tomorrow!

I'm leaving for RWA Nationals in Orlando tomorrow.

I'm bringing:

1. Business cards;

2. Bookmarks and postcards for The Duke and The Pirate Queen;

3. A list of cell phone numbers, and dates and times of parties and rendezvous;

4. A book to read (yes, really!); and

5. Fuchsia lipstick.

Also some clothing and toiletries, if you were worried.

Here are some a couple of events where you might be able to find me:
Wednesday, July 28, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm, Pacific Exhibit Hall at the Dolphin Hotel: "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing

Thursday, July 29, 10:00 pm – 1:00 am, Oceanic 1: The eHarlequin Pajama Party.



Not forking out the dough for the RWA Conference this year, with evening wear, suits, high heels and whatever "business casual" means?

Not to worry! Romance Divas is hosting the

Not Going to Conference Conference...

The Conference You Don't Have to Get Out of Bed For!

From July 28-31, come hang out with some terrific, savvy authors -- and you don't even have to brush your teeth (although, seriously, good dental hygiene gets you extra points.)

We'll be hosting panels on:

--The Power of Three: A crit group tell-all (Paranormal): Crystal Jordan& Patti O'Shea & Dayna Hart/Rowan Larke.

--The Lolitas of Steamed! Present Writing the Steampunk Romance -more than leather corsets and brass goggles! Marie-Claude Bourque & Theresa Meyers.

--Whips, Chains, Slings, Oh My: It Really Isn’t About the Toys (BDSM Erotica): James Buchanan & Joey Hill.

--The Great Big YA Panel: Rhonda Stapleton & Shannon Delany & Kiersten White & Carrie Ryan & Linda Gerber & Saundra Mitchell & Lara Zielin & Brenna Yovanoff.

Register for free at Romance Divas, then come join us on the forums for the discussions, as well as some terrific prizes, including critiques of synopses, chapters, and proposals; books both print and electronic; design services; a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card; and more.


  1. Have a great time! I wish I were there. Will be in spirit.

  2. Maybe I can carry around a cardboard cutout of you.
