The Romance Writers of America conference was AMAZING! Not only did I get to sit in on and moderate incredible panels, I got to meet some of my favorite authors, too! And the literacy fundraiser was a complete success raising over $50,000 for three Orange County charities: ProLiteracy Worldwide, Read OC, and Literacy Volunteers – Huntington Valley.
I’m a die-hard sports fan and got to meet Jaci Burton who pens the Play-By-Play series sports romance books for football, baseball, and hockey. Her newest football book, Playing to Win, comes out September 4th.
I also had drinks with two of my favorite paranormal romance writers Laura Wright (Mark of the Vampire Series) and Jennifer Lyon (Wing Slayer Hunters Series). Laura’s new book, Eternal Beast, comes out August 7th. Jennifer is working on her next installment of the Wing Slayer Hunters series, Cage Magic. I’ll keep you posted on a release date.
All the books listed above are great beach reads. Take some time for yourself and read one (or all) of them and let me know how you like them!
Next year’s conference is in Atlanta. Who wants to go with me?
