I had a fabulous time at the Romance Writers of America annual conference, held a few weeks ago in Atlanta. Over 2,000 authors, editors, agents, and librarians attended the conference. It was a fantastic time of learning, recharging, and inspiration.
One of the highlights of the conference for me was taking part in RWA’s annual Literacy Autographing. Over 450 authors participated, with the proceeds going to support literacy programs. Here’s a photo of me just before the event got underway. Because my book An Heiress at Heart was a finalist for the prestigious RITA award, I got to have a blue RITA flag flying at my table!
And while I did not get to take home one of these lovely statues, I’m thrilled beyond words to have been nominated.
I’ve posted more photos over on my Facebook page. I hope you’ll hop over and check them out.
I’ll be signing copies of An Heiress at Heart at the Romance Writers of America’s Readers for Life Literacy Autographing this Wednesday at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

I’ll be participating in this event along with over 450 other authors! You can see a complete list of authors here. The proceeds go to support literacy programs.
This is always an amazing event–a ballroom filled with hundreds of authors and avid readers! It’s like a really big party–and there are lots of fun giveaway items as well!
If you live in the Atlanta area, I hope you’ll come out and join us!
