Two of the biggest Romance Writing conferences are being advertised right now. One is in LA and the other is in NY. Both offer an abundance of opportunity to learn, grow and prosper as a romance writer.
The first is the Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention. I have the amazing opportunity to be a regular reviewer for this magazine and I know they put on a great conference. It’s for people who LOVE to read romance but it’s also for writers. There are a number of sessions and workshops taught by some of the best writers in the business. AND you can meet your favorite authors.
It’s coming up quickly – April 6-11. You can find more information about it here – http://www.rtconvention.com/.
The other huge industry convention is the Romance Writer’s of American annual convention. This year it is in New York! What a great excuse to visit and see one of the greatest cities in the country. I’m not sure if I’m going simply because of the timing but who knows!
At any rate if you have “attending a conference” on your “Things to do to further my romance career” list, then this is the one that is likely to provide the most value. It’ s not cheap but it’s a great place to network, learn and have fun.

Again, happy Friday and have a safe and delightful weekend!
And for all of those who are in the Tsunami Zone or struggling from the aftermath of the Earthquake in Japan – my thoughts and prayers are with you! Be safe!
