#RWA16: kc crashes the party…
So, I’m in San Diego, attending my first ever Romance Writers of America conference.
These guys know how to do an event up BIG. There are more than 2000 Romance writers [and probably a few other hangers-on like myself] at this conference. The city is amazing, everyone has been lovely and I just watched the amazing Beverly Jenkins knock everyone dead with her keynote speech. [This is the second keynote I’ve heard from Beverly. She is nothing short of awesome as a speaker. She educates me, uplifts me as a writer and she makes me laugh AND cry every time.]
I’m not a romance writer, but my agent lives in this city, my editor came for this event, and I see this as a chance to learn from a wonderful and diverse group of other writers. [Also? Apart from a few meetings, signings and parties I’m supposed to attend — no organization required!]
If you follow me on twitter, FB or Instagram, you’ll see a few of the shots I’ve taken while around town.
I have a signing tomorrow afternoon from 1-2:30 pm in the Marriot ballroom, but apart from that, my plans are to drink in the atmosphere, learn as much as I can, and enjoy this pretty city. If you are nearby, come say hello!
