It’s that time of the year again – the Romance Writers’ of America Annual Conference and this year it is being held in San Antonio, Texas. I have never been – to San Antonio or Texas, but I can’t wait. Being a writer of both regency/Victorian romances and western romances, I have always wanted to see The Alamo, but the more I read up on San Antonio, I’m realizing there are plenty of other spots of interest as well – missions, historical districts, The Market, The Rivercenter Mall.
I’m not sure how many of them I will have time to see between conference events, but I hope I can get to as many as possible.
And the Riverwalk – I’m think that will be my happy place for the week. It’s absolutely lovely in the pictures and being a bit of an introvert (as a writer, I’m sure that fact doesn’t leave anyone staggering in disbelief), it’s always good to have a place to go to get away from the noise and hubbub of the conference itself. A little downtime to refill the well. And what a great place to do it than along the Riverwalk.
This conference will also mark the first time I have taken part in the “Readers for Life” Literacy Signing. This event is a chance for readers to meet hundreds of romance authors who will be signing books for their fans. I’m really excited to take part, signing my August release, SALVATION IN THE RANCHER’S ARMS, my first western romance with Harlequin Historical. Aside from a great opportunity to meet readers face to face, the proceeds from the book sales will go to ProLiteracy Worldwide, Literacy Texas, Restore Education, and Each One Teach One San Antonio. So if you’re in the San Antonio area, come by the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel. The event will be in the 3rd floor ballroom on July 23, 2014 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
So this week will be spent getting as much work done on my next indie release, A SINFUL TEMPTATION (Book 3: Sins & Scandals Series) before I leave to stay on track; figuring out what to pack (more importantly – what shoes to take!); and ensuring the crew at my day job have all the passwords and instructions they’ll need for when I go electronically silent for the week!
