Romance Writers of America celebrated its 30th anniversary in Orlando, Florida July 28-31. Before the conference began some of us explored Disney's Epcot using discounted tickets for conference attendees. A great option to remember if you're planning on attending a conference on Disney property. We had a great time!
Cinderella and Mary Poppins welcome Darlene, Lindi, me, Debby and Missy. Those stylish ladies kept their smiles in the hot humid weather. We had a delicious dinner in France that evening.
The Literacy signing was held the first evening of the conference. Critique partner and friend Shirley Jump and I pose for a picture. All the proceeds of this huge signing go to literacy.
I attended several excellent workshops, met with my Steeple Hill editor and hung out with Steeple Hill Love Inspired authors and writer friends. The Harlequin party is always a highlight. Missy, Ruthy, Debby and I gather for a photo Friday night.
The Awards Ceremony Saturday evening was the grand finale of the conference. A time to celebrate Rita and Golden Heart finalists and winners and those amazing thirty years. Debby, Missy, Darlene, me, Sandra, Myra, Ruthy and Anita Mae smiling for the camera.
Hope you enjoyed a peek at RWA! I'm back to routine, working on a new book.
