NJRW Conference Mania

First, our winner! Last week, RoseAnn DeFranco chatted up her new book, Return to Audubon Springs and gave away a $5 Amazon gift certificate to one lucky winner. The commenter who receives the gift certificate is Barbara Bettis. Congratulations, Barbara, and thanks for supporting the Femmes!

This Friday, the New Jersey Romance Writers “Put Your Heart in a Book” conference begins. Keynote speaker will be Diane Cosby, and we’ll have other presentations by Connie Brockway, Eloisa James, and Margaret Mallory.

Conferences can be stressful, especially if you’re pitching. Last year, VF Maria did a FAB post on How to Get Ready for a Conference. Check it out if you need tips.

For my tips, I took the question to the mean streets of Twitter.

If you go and you’re active on Twitter, I hope you’ll use the hashtag #njrw13 so everyone can follow the fun. I’ll be doing a few posts from the conference, including a wrap up of the Awards ceremony.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

  1. I got my hair trimmed and am contemplating a pedicure so as not to frighten my roommate.

  2. The imagery! Oh, and I am packing towels and Clorox wipes.

  3. I’m trying to get my pitching outfit together! And I need to make cookies. I promised my roomies. 🙂

  4. Fun idea for a post! And now I want cookies 🙂

  5. I bought a new suit (I do this every year) and have begun packing! Including my books to sell at the literacy booksigning and bookmarks to give out!
