Went up to Carter’s Mountain, VA this past weekend and picked apples. Got a little carried away and picked about twenty pounds worth but I’m looking forward to all the apple pies I’m going to make!
I had a real blast at the New Jersey Romance Writers Put Your Heart in A Book conference held in Iselin, NJ this past weekend. Not only did I get a chance to present my talk “Unraveling Romantic Suspense” but I was able to sign SENSELESS and MERCILESS at the book fair and attend Sunday’s booksellers luncheon. Talks by Eloisa James, Suzanne Brockmann and Rachel Gibson were wonderful.
Just returned from a great trip to Atlanta, Georgia where I attended the Georgia Romance Writers 29th Annual Moonlight and Magnolias conference. I had the chance to present “Unraveling Romantic Suspense”, sign with some great gals and meet some very welcoming and charming folks. If you’re looking for conferences next year, definitely consider this event.
For anyone who writes mystery or suspense, you must consider attending the Writers Police Academy held near Greensboro, N.C. Recruits not only got to see a mock hostage situation but were able to hear experts discuss topics such as cold cases, cyber crimes, arson investigation, DNA testing and uncover work.
Just returned from RWA held in New York this year. The conference hotel was right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Times Square which added lots of great energy to the conference.
