|I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, but I don’t suppose there’s a conference there I can attend.|
It’s that time of year to start thinking about the conferences coming up for next year. I’ve already been invited to several, but I’d really like to try some new ones. So here’s your chance to let me know what your group has going in 2009. There are so many of you I’ve met and look forward to seeing again, but there are many more that I’d love to meet. So much to talk about and so little time.
In 2008, I attended RWA, RT, Love is Murder, K-Con, Comic Con San Diego, Thrillerfest, NINC, Spring Fling, WisRWA, Lori Foster’s Reader/Writer get together and Heather Graham’s Writers for New Orleans. I travelled the U.S., saw the sights and met some amazing people (and don’t forget the Obama rally I accidently stumbled into at Thrillerfest).

While I concentrated on books and authors, I swooned over Adrian Paul and Richard Dean Anderson. I also got to interview Dakota Fanning and Chris Evans about their upcoming movie Push. I was slighted by Katy Segal and Lindsay Wagner because I wouldn’t pay the $30 to talk to them. I was tossed out of New Orleans by hurricane Gustav, but I did get to try military ready to eat packs.
So what’s in store for me in 2009? Some conferences I’ve already been invited to are NY Comic Con in February, DC for the Virginia RWA in April, Comic Con in San Diego in July, Dragon Con in August and WisRWA in Green Bay in May and Moonlight and Magnolias in Atlanta.
And while my travel budget is limited, I’m still open to suggestions. Where do you think I should visit in 2009? What does your group have going on? Where are you traveling to in 2009? And keep in mind that I’m always up for warm weather adventures.
Bottom Line: If Hugh Jackman or Daniel Craig will be at your conference, sign me up.
