Friday I leave for Washington DC where I’ll be attending the Washington Romance Writers Retreat. I’m really psyched for it. Attending conferences really energizes me and I love connecting with those in publishing and meeting new readers.
I’m constantly hearing from readers about how much they enjoy hearing about my travels since they can’t always go themselves. Even though I’ll be attending about a dozen events this year, there’s a ton more I won’t be able to make. While it saddens me, I think I’ve got the perfect solution. You can become a cub reporter for Beyond Her Book. If you are attending a conference, retreat or convention that I won’t be at, let me know and I’ll be glad to include your write up about the function. You can even include a couple of pictures.
Here’s a list of my commitments:
WRW (Washington Romance Writers) 4/16-18 (Doing a workshop)
Spring Fling (Chicago RWA) 4/23-24 (On a panel)
Romantic Times Booklovers Convention – 4/28-5/2
WisRWA (Wisconsin RWA) 5/14-16 (Doing a workshop)
Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books 6/18-19 (On a panel)

Please send me an email if you are interested in covering your event. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s the chance to plug your get-together. Feel free to post the places you’ll be attending. Let everyone know when the booksignings will be. Does your chapter do something special? Book festivals? Special gatherings?
Bottom Line: Today is International Moment of Laughter Day. Go ahead and tell a joke.
