NY, NY. And NJ, NJ.

By the time this posts, I’ll be in NYC and then off to the New Jersey Romance Writers, Put Your Heart in a Book Conference. I’m speaking Saturday afternoon on How to Write a Synopsis. I’ll warn anyone who is thinking of coming to my workshop, I intend to put new emphasis on the word “work” in workshop. Come prepared to work. Hard.

Julia Quinn is coming to the conference and we were joking the other day that while we live in the same town, we only really get to see each other when we leave Seattle to go to conferences. Crazy but true. There will some fun Avon folks, besides Ms. Quinn, including Eloisa James, Sophia Nash, and my favorite bad-girl, Kathryn Smith. Kathryn has this dry wonderful humor and nothing, I mean nothing, gets past her. And Eileen Dreyer will be there and I just stand in awe of her. Her writing is wonderful and she’s a funny, well-traveled, down to earth sort of writer.

And then there are a ton of people I don’t know. I’ve never been to a regional conference on the East Coast, so this is my first foray over there, and I am excited to meet new people and yak about writing. So if you see me wandering around, looking slightly lost, introduce yourself, because I’ll be sort of a fish out of water. Or at least out of my native waters.

And don’t forget, you don’t have to be a writer to drop by. Come to the Literacy Booksigning on Saturday, from 4-5:30. I’ll be signing various titles, always love to meet readers and can’t wait to see who turns up! Details and links on my Events page.  And BTW, I just got notice that no outside books will be allowed into the signing, which IMHO sucks, but nobody asked me obviously.  So if you have books that you want signed, please bring them.  I am more than willing to go out in the hall and sign them for you.  Heck, I’ll follow you out into the parking lot if need be.  If you want your keepers signed, then I will find a way to make it work.  I truly look forward to meeting you!

So who would you want to meet at a booksigning?

    I had a long list for National and an even longer one here. Now, if only they’d put up the list of authors signing on the conference page, I’d be able to trim the list.

    Have a great trip! Sounds like a blast!

    I would like to meet Stephen King at a booksigning. I enjoyed his book On Writing and would love to get some more insights from him.

    Andrea, your post made me smile. I just spent the day hanging with Sophia Nash and she’s a gem! You’ll just love her!

    I had the GREAT pleasure of finally, after reading and loving all her books, meeting Elizabeth Boyle and it was a thrill. I also was lucky enough to fit into her workshop on Writing a Synopsis which was hands-on and so full of great information that I am still going over and re-writing my notes….between reading ‘Letters from a Duke’ which is quickly becoming my favorite EB book. Athough, Mad Jack will always have my heart. Orlando would have it but he still remains inexplicably dead, poor sod!

    I love this book and have not LOL while reading in quite a while. You are also a gem, my dear. Can’t wait for more and more from Tally and Pippin and will be more than happy to content myself with Hermoine!

    M’hat’s off to you!
