I’ve been busy. I’ve just finished edits on THROWN FOR A CURVE and HAVE YOURSELF A CURVY LITTLE CHRISTMAS. And I’m hard at work on book three in my Perfect Fit series. Plus I’m working on a new series for Harlequin which I’m really excited about. I’ll share more about that in the next few weeks.
I’m heading to Atlanta in a few short hours for my first RWA conference. And I’m ready. My hair is shiny and bouncy. My feet are pedicured. My fabulous new clothes are all packed. I’m EXCITED, but I’m nervous. This will be my first time flying alone. My first time attending such a huge conference. The first time I’ll meet my editors and the authors that I have admired for so long. It’s also the first time I’ll be signing. I won’t be at the huge signing with all the authors but a smaller one just for Saint Martin’s Press authors on Saturday afternoon. (Come visit me!!!!) Since my book isn’t out till August 27th, my publisher was kind enough to order fifty ARCs for me to sign.
Then there are the parties! By nature I’m not much of a partier and am kind of shy. So the idea of hanging out in a room filled with hundreds of people I don’t know is a little daunting. But I’m planning on meeting loads of new people and making friends while I’m there.
But all of this has my brain spinning.
So for those of you who have been to RWA nationals before, what advice can you give to a newbie?
