Q for my writer friends…

I’m still on the fence about RWA Nationals this year, possibly in 2012, I don’t know.  I want to go, but um… damn, it’s expensive this year.  What I might to do instead is hit some smaller regional things instead.  I’m looking at the Spring Fling in Chicago in 2012.  Maybe something non-RWA, either science-ficiton/fantasy focused for my paranormal or thriller/mystery for my romantic suspense books.

But…I’ve never really hit a whole lot of conventions or conferences, especially compared to some of my writer friends.  I’ve done RWA once, RT two or three times, and I usually hit Lori Foster’s event in June and Lora Leigh’s RAW.  That’s about it.

Sooooo… you got any suggestions or ideas?  What are they and where are they…any help would be appreciated!

Also… my next Writes & Wrongs post is up at Romantic Times, about Goodreads & Shelfari.

  1. Selfishly, I would love you to come to either New Jersey or New York. There are the usual Borders and Barnes & Noble book stores, and some local, book shops that truly appreciate writers and genuinely support them.

    Just kidding. I can wish can’t I?
    Hope to see you again at Lori’s.

  4. What about RomCon in Denver Aug 5-7. Last year was the first one and I had a really good time. This year’s is looking bigger too.

  5. Denise, I’m not really looking for signing locations-this is more trying to figure out what writing conventions/conferences to hit… sorry!

    Brandy, RomCon is something I may consider-it’s just kind of low on my list. Denver, sadly, isn’t that easily accessible for me. :O/

  6. How about Authors After Dark in Philly? Meljean Brook, Zoe Archer and many others are attending.

  7. @Vi…I think Authors after Dark is more focused on readers & writers and while I love those, I need to hit more craft-focused ones, which is what RWA does.

    I usually do a couple of smaller reader events, but I’m not sure if I’ll be doing any writer-focused things this year and I really need to. Glum sigh. I’m so lazy with this part, it’s sad. I don’t even know what the good ones…O.o

  8. If you do decide to do Chicago, I promise, faithfully, I will drive down and spend time with you, and show you some of the sights, and take you to dinner at my BIL’s restaurant (you could even meet my newest niece!).
