Where to begin?
I hadn't been to a conference other than my local chapter one in three years. The last RWA National I went to was in Orlando in 2010. So, I was itchin' to go somewhere this year. I seriously thought about RT, but it was too early. Then I remembered RomCon
. I've been friends with Melissa Mayhue
for a while and knew she had been before, so I contacted her.
"You'll have a great time!" was her enthusiastic recommendation. So I signed up - for everything. I signed up for a Buddy Group and met three of the most interesting and diverse women. The first night in the bar, I met Laci Paige. The next day I met a number of staff from the Wild Rose Press
, and the Plotting Princesses
. These ladies from the Dallas area were just the pick-me-up I needed. Between the princesses, Laci, and my buddies, I was set for the weekend with friends galore.
RomCon is a conference for the reader. There are Intimate chats, author panels, speed-date-an-author, games and activities, and lots of swag. And the readers (fans) love every minute of it.
As I'm writing this, I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures. I almost always take a camera when I go places - and this conference was no exception - but you can't take pictures if you don't ever take the darn thing out of the bag!
So, what did I do? Come back in as couple of days as I talk about each of the three activities I participated in and give you my take on them.
See you in a few days!
