I will be signing in the Readers For Life Literacy Signing at the RWA National Conference. The signing is free and open to the public and I’ll be there with 400 other authors!
Wednesday, July 25, from 5:00–8:00 p.m.
Anaheim Convention Center
700 West Convention Way
Anaheim, California 92802
This year they are not using alphabetical seating – so I’ll be at table 803 (they’re giving out maps at the entrance) so if you can find me I’ll have salted caramels, hi chews and lollipops! And per RWA policy, you won’t be allowed to bring in your own books for authors to sign.
If you’re attending the conference I’ll also be participating in:
Panel: Alternative Romance Goes Mainstream
Participants: Kim Baldwin, Suzanne Brockmann, Lauren Dane, Sarah Frantz,
K.A. Mitchell, Heather Osborn, Radclyffe
Presentation Date: Thursday, July 26
Presentation Time: 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM
Room: Platinum 3
Panel description: This lively panel of best-selling, award-winning authors, editors, and publishers from both print and digital houses will discuss how and why they write and publish books that include gay, lesbian, and bisexual main characters. They will offer craft tips unique to writing about these relationships, explaining why they write in or publish this subgenre, how is it different from writing heterosexual couples, and how, when, and why they incorporate characters with alternate sexualities into their mainstream romance series. They will also discuss frankly what the market for these books is, where writers should send their submissions, what sales numbers are like, who the audience is, and how these are books received by readers and reviewers. The panelists will respond to the moderator’s guided questions and in the last fifteen minutes, will open the floor for audience questions.
Signings: Samhain 3:00 – 4:30 on 7/27 and Berkley 9:00 – 10:30 on 7/28- you’ll need to check your agenda to see the room assignments
Hope to see you there!!!
