RT Convention or Online Mini-Con

Hi Everybody,

I'm going to be at the Romantic Times Convention all next week. Leaving this afternoon for Columbus to work with the Aspiring Writers program on Monday and Tuesday. It's always fun! Who else will be in Columbus? I hope to see you there.

If you're not going to RT, I've arranged a little online mini-conference for you on my blog with giveaways, craft workshops and some exciting news. Here's the schedule for :

Monday--Barbara Monajem and her SUNRISE IN THE GARDEN OF LOVE AND EVIL. Leave a comment for a chance to win!

Tuesday--Romance Legend Connie Mason and her first new title in two years LORD OF DEVIL ISLE! Leave a comment for a chance to win!

Wednesday--My Husband Married A Hooker, Part 1--I'm giving the Reader's Digest version of my writing hooks workshop.--Leave a comment for a chance to win!

Thursday--Red Pencil Thursday all the way from Cyprus. One of my regular commenters shares her WIP for a public scrubbing.

Friday--A New Direction for my Career--I've got some thrilling and terrifying news to share and hope you'll drop by.

I may not be able to comment through the week. You never know what the internet connection will be like when you travel, but I'll catch up with all the comments and questions when I return home on May 2nd.

Have a great week and
Happy Reading and Writing,
STROKE OF GENIUS, coming May 25th!

Can't wait until Tuesday with Connie Mason :D

I know! She's written several Viking romances. She's one writer who takes her stories to every time period.

Ooh, sounds like a very exciting week! Looking forward to everything on your list - especially if your news on Friday turns out to be what I'm hoping it'll be :). Talk about writing hooks...

Glynis, glad to hear you're taking the plunge! You know we're all gentle scrubbers here, so I hope you're looking forward to it, not nervous :).

Enjoy the convention. I wish I thought of going. It is only about 8 or 9 hours away. We go to Dayton every year for a blacksmithing meeting.

You have a terrific line-up for the week. I'm looking forward to finding out more about Barbara Monajem. Connie Mason is an old favorite. She is one of the 4 or 5 first romance writers I ever read.
Look forward to your news on Friday. I'm already guessing.

Nynke, I think you'll enjoy Glynis's excerpt. She's got a very original hook with her title.

EmilyBryan said...

Pat--Me too. Connie's been writing since the 80's and was one of the first I read as well. I'm so excited to be able to spotlight her first new title in the last 2 years.
