Anyone in the romance novel industry knows about RWA and their national conference. Last year was my very first conference and my only regret was that I hadn't been going for years! I was under the impression that it was only beneficial for published authors to attend...boy was I wrong!! The RWA annual conference is a crucial event for anyone interested in publishing their romance novel. There are craft workshops, business related workshops, opportunities to pitch to agents and publishers but best of all...you get to network and meet like-minded people.
It's a total blast!!
This year the conference was held here in NYC. It was a non-stop adventure from beginning to end. I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing some of my favorite people in the industry. I had a total fan-girl moment when I interviewed author Lori Handeland. She is so talented and such a doll!
I got so many cool interviews that I couldn't squeeze it all into one video blog. As a result, I'm in the process of creating a RWA '11 Video Series. A few of them are done and you can check them out below!
Next year the conference will be in Anaheim, California and I can't wait!
