Barbara Vey -- June 22nd, 2012

RomCon’s tag line is “Where Readers Rule” and this conference in Denver endeavors to make that happen.  There’s a whole list of events to whet every readers appetite covering every romance genre.

Thursday evening was fairly quiet with the full events starting on Friday and running through Sunday.  Authors were sequestered in a room and given the outline of what to expect and looking at the timeline, there’s a lot coming up.  Titantic Tea parties, games, Highland adventures, intimate chats and speed dating with authors to name a few.

Bloggers were given their own welcome and looked ready to get this party started.  I met many readers just wandering around, getting the lay of the land and making their own schedule of favorite things to do.  One mother/daughter duo admitted it was their first time and didn’t know where to begin.  They were hunched over the conference booklet studying each event, trying to get the most out of their first meetings with real live authors.


I can’t wait to get started today.  This kind of event reinforces what I strongly believe that readers are the strongest part of the whole industry.  Without readers, there would be no need for anything else.


Bottom Line:  Readers definitely do rule.

    The readers make all the difference. They make my characters come to life and love to hear that! RomCon was the best–I made so many new friends, readers and authors alike. Can’t wait for next year.

    RomCon is the best conference for readers and authors alike to talk about the books we all enjoy and get to know one another on an intimate level. I was able to tell several authors I love how much I enjoy their stories. I had a wonderful time also discovering new authors.

    Already planning for next year’s RomCon!

    I just manufactured this.. I utilised confectioners sugar (making use of the recipe with honey, sugar and lemon juice) so I am not absolutely sure if that will make a variation or not. I also didn’t possess a candy thermometer so I employed the tricks that other people had posted (amber colour, putting drops of it in cold water, aprox twenty mins.. Plus I utilised a meat thermometer). Whilst it had been cooking, it was largely foam. I waited right up until it was that amber colour stated plus the meat thermometer explained about 245. As soon as I took it off the heat the foam explained goodbye as well as the honey mixture was darker than expected! Hopefully it had been the correct temprature… Its cooling now, I will allow you understand the result later!
