Today I am celebrating with my family (brunch with my parents in the morning, pizza with my husband and kids at night). I am also getting ready to leave tomorrow for the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention tomorrow and I’ll be there through Sunday. This is pretty much the biggest gathering of romance readers/writers/publishers out there, and includes all kinds of romance genres. I went last year in New Orleans and had a wonderful time so I am really excited to be going back.
This year it is in Dallas, a city of I have never before visited. I am told there is good Mexican food and big margaritas. Sold! I will be rooming with J.A. Rock, so you can pretty much be sure hijinks will ensue! I am also leading a session at the blogger precon, which I am really excited about, as well as acting as one of the blogger hosts for the Wheel of Romance Fortune events. If you want to keep track of what is going on, including lots of pictures and details on the various goings on, be sure to follow me all the usual places: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. There will be steampunk happening people, don’t miss it!
