Terri Reed here sitting in a friend's room in the beautiful Dolphin hotel on the Disney property in Orlando counting down the hours until conference starts. Romance Writers of America will be holding its 30th anniversay conference starting on Wednesday July 28th. At 5:30pm on Wednesday in the Dolphin's Pacific Exhibit Hall, 500 of your favorite romance authors will be signing their romance novels in every subgenre. All proceeds from book sales go to ProLiteracy Worldwide and Orlando and Nashville literacy organizations. If you are in the area, please stop by and if you do stop in to this free event, find me and say HI. Authors are listed alphabetically.
I'll be signing my May 2010 release Covert Pursuit.
This year's keynote speaker is the fabulous, New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts. There will be numerous workshops including the one I will be doing titled RWA Leadership Development with RWA's Executive Director Allison Kelley, bright and early on Friday morning at 8:30am. The week will culminate with the prestigious RITA and Golden Heart award dinner and ceremony. I'll be wearing an ice blue strapless ballgown with a little bling in my hair (I couldn't bring myself to do an actual tiara).
Looking forward to see some of you there!
