Just a Quickie Update

Barbara Vey -- April 20th, 2011

Just wanted to let you know that I will be attending Comic Con in San Diego after all this year thanks to an invite from RWA member Lisa Kessler.  She’ll be my videographer. (I’ll see you there Cal!)  You never know who I’ll meet there.  I’ll also be doing a workshop for the San Diego RWA on September 17th, so sign up if you’ll be in the area.

In addition, I’ll be attending the Heart of Dixie Luncheon in Huntsville, AL on April 30th and I just can’t wait to be around all those southern accents.  It tickles me.

May 17th I’ll be in Detroit talking to the Greater Detroit RWA group.  Please don’t let it snow.

May 21st you’ll find me in Atlanta doing a workshop for the Georgia Romance Writers with author Dianna Love about Building Reader Loyalty (something I’ve been blogging about the past 2 days).

Then it’s off to New York for the BEA (BookExpo America) May 23-27th.  I get chills…they’re multiplying (great, now that song will be stuck in my head) when I think about all the wonderful things I’ll be seeing here.

I’m moderating a romance panel and also will be sitting on a panel for the Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books at UW-Waukesha June 17th & 18th.

Back to New York for RWA June 28 – July 1 with a stop at Lady Jane’s Salon that Monday.  Don’t miss it if you’re in town.

DragonCon has asked me to be on a panel, so I’ll happily return to Atlanta September 2-5.  This is one wild and crazy party.

Central Ohio Fiction Writer’s Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio September 30 – October 1st has invited me to participate on a panel.  My first time there so it’ll be special.

October 20th I’ll head back to Ohio for an author luncheon given by the Medina Library.  Yes, I’ll do anything for a library.

I think that’ll do it for the year, but I’ve already got 4 events already lined up for 2012.  WooHoo!!

But today I’m guest blogging at Seekerville and they’re giving away 24 books just for commenting.  It’s a great deal you just can’t pass up.

If you see me at any of these events, please stop me and say hello.  I’m an old fashioned woman and while online stuff is fun, I love the face to face meets.

Will you be attending any of these conferences?  Feel free to mention the conferences I’m sadly missing this year and link to their pages.  Remember, I’m always looking for Cub Reporters to cover the events I’m not able to attend.

It’s also been mentioned to me that there’s no contact info for me on this page, so you can email me at barbaravey@gmail.com

Bottom Line: I think it’s time I start looking for a social secretary.

    We’re so looking forward to seeing Barbara in Atlanta at the GRW meeting in May. I appreciate her making time to join me in talking about reader loyalty. I consider her an expert. Just stop by the Seekerville Blog today to see what I mean. It’s a pajama party going on over there. The link is in Debby’s post (waving at you).
