As we are rounding out the year and counting our blessings, here’s something to look forward to in 2011 so far.
The Historical Novel Society will hold its North American Conference June 17-19 at the Holiday Inn on the Bay in San Diego. http://www.historicalnovelsociety.org/
Romance Writers of America (all 2,000 + of us) will gather for the annual conference June 28-July 1 at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Times Square (Mark the “Marquis” — is that historic or what?) http://www.rwanational.org/
And for those who prefer something in the middle:
RomCon® — second annual conference will be back in Denver, CO, August 5-7 at the Crowne Plaza Denver Aiport hotel. http://www.romconinc.com/index.php/convention.
I loved this conference where readers and authors mingling in sessions and casually throughout the conference to the delight and fun of all.
RWA has sent out a “Shop Bookstores this Season,” email to its members to share and pass on, encouraging all of us to support bookstores in our communities. Yes, even those that don’t “do” book signings unless for the very, very famous. We still love them. Happy shopping and reading to all.
