Hello from wonderful, energetic New York City. I am nearing the end of my three week conference odyssey that started about three weeks ago in Munich. I am at the RWA National Conference. The previous conferences in Munich and Tampa were reader conventions. This one is most definitely centered on craft. I have met some amazing authors. I set next to Amelia Grey and near Patience Griffith at the literacy signing. I got a signed book for my mother form Robyn Carr. I have attended workshops on building sexual tension and writing Killer Romantic Suspense. It’s been really awesome. I’ve also had some amazing food and I attended the Kiss of Death Daphne awards with my friend Hope who was a finalist. I have to say the Death by Chocolate buffet, was only mildly ill by chocolate rather than death, but it was still a nice evening.
Today I have a number of other workshops on my schedule and I really hope to learn some new skills that will help make my work more exciting and engaging.
I leave New York first thing tomorrow morning because I’m attending the Kiss and Tell signing event in Harrisburg. Then my odyssey will be complete and I can spend some time home with Dominic. Now that’s the best reward I can think of.
