How many of y’all like to go to conferences?
The reason I ask is it’s coming into conference season and there are a ton of them out there. Romantic Times Convention is a biggie going on starting tomorrow I believe and running through 5/6.
I went to this one back in 2009. I had a great time, but it’s a huge conference and you feel kind of lost in the crowd. As an author, most of the time I felt like I didn’t count because it was so geared toward the NY publishing houses and the big authors like Nora Roberts, J.R. Ward and others. They say they try to help the small epress published authors, but I don’t think they do.
It’s hard to know which one conferences to go to. I’m scheduled to be at several this year including Lori Foster’s RAGT, Romfest in Gatlinburg, Obsessed Chicks BBQ in NYC, AAD in Savannah, Romance Novel Convention in Las Vegas, Moonlight and Magnolia’s in Atlanta and Southern Magic Luncheon in Birmingham AL in November. Wow!
I do hope to see many of you there! I’ll have books and goodies! I know goodies always make conferences better.
As for the cowboys, I’m working on the second in my Cowboy Dreamin’ series. It’s called The Heart of a Cowboy and it’s the oldest brothers story. He’s been burned badly, but I’m hoping he’ll pull his head out soon otherwise he might just lose the girl. 😦
The first in the series Make Mine a Cowboy will be out soon. I hope to have a cover to show off in the coming weeks! Stay tuned!
So question, do you like going to conferences and seeing your favorite authors?
