Heading to Orlando...

Well, not quite yet... That's not happening until the end of the month.

I'm Lisa Mondello and even though it's a few weeks away I'm getting really excited about attending the annual Romance Writer's of America conference in Orlando! I've visited Mickey several times in my life and have always enjoyed myself in Orlando. But this year will be different. I'll be going without family to spend some time with my writing family and friends, many who are on this blog, the Craftie Ladies of Romance blog and the Love Inspired Authors blog. I always have a great time and learn a lot from the Steeple Hill family of authors every year.

This year will be special in another way. A dear friend is up for the Golden Heart award and has invited me to enjoy the Rita and Golden Heart Awards with her. (Yes, that's you CJ!) I always have a lot of fun and leave the conference tired and fully charge to write.

Lyn Cote posted a nice update about what the Rita Awards are over at the Craftie Ladies of Romance blog so make sure you go over and check that out. AND check back here during the conference to get updates and pics of the Literacy Booksigning and what's happening with the Craftie Ladies.

Until next time, many blessings, Lisa Mondello

I'm getting excited about Orlando, too. Can't wait to see everyone! Especially all the Craftie Ladies and cyber friends.

We'll need to get a new pic for our blog.

To all our wonderful blog friends...please stop by our tables at the Literacy Signing on WED night--not to buy, but to say hello! We would love the company and to be able to give you a big hug for supporting us.

See you in Orlando!

I was going to say the same thing. Lisa or Deb, please get a picture. We have two on their now. A third would be great, especially as our numbers have grown.
I won't be there - boo hoo - still afraid of flying it's called.
Take lots of notes for me.

Wish you were coming, Pam! And it'll be good to see you again Deb!
