Meet Me In Massachusetts At The NEC-RWA Conference This April

The New England Chapter of the Romance Writers Of America has invited me to its 2013 Let Your Imagination Take Flight Conference in Burlington, MA! Which means on April 26 and 27th I am going to be attending workshops, a luncheon, master classes and more. (Not to mention staking out some awesome giveaways!)

Looking over the conference agenda, I already know the highlights for me — the Friday dinner followed by a dessert buffet and scavenger hunt featuring keynote speaker Zoë Archer. I can’t wait to check out Zoë’s fun boots (she has the best taste in footwear) and an amazing publishing career that spans futuristic to historical romances with — you guessed it — fearless heroines with great boots! (And if we are lucky, perhaps Zoë’s husband, sci fi romance author Nico Rosso, will also take the stage to give us some inside deets on the couple’s writing habits.)

Another can’t-be-missed event at the conference is a master class on writing dialogue with Julia Quinn. THE Julia Quinn, author of some of the funniest, wittiest historical romances … well, ever. (Here’s hoping she not only shares tips and tricks on crafting lively banter, but also spills some Bridgerton family secrets!)

And while I might not be a fiction writer, I know a highlight for many authors attending are the agent/editor appointments. These publishing professionals (see the list here) will pre-read the first 10 pages of the writer’s manuscript, so there will be lots to discuss during these one-on-one meetings. AMAZING!

Freebies, giveaways, great food and awesomely talented people to connect with — does it get any better? Not in my book.
