“Marlowe has penned a wonderful tale, rich in romance and wit. Replete with memorable characters and a touch of Scottish legend, this well-written romance is both poignant and highly entertaining. Not to be missed by fans of Scottish Regency.”

RWA2014Every year the romance world gathers for the RWA Convention and this year it’s in San Antonio, Texas! I’m totally pumped about heading that way tomorrow. The DH is coming with me so we’re making it a road trip. He’s planning to spend his time hanging around the pool while I keep a whirl-wind schedule of signings, networking and workshops. Here’s a peek into some of what I’ll be up to:

Wednesday July 23rd

5:30-7:30pm Literacy for Life Signing
Rivercenter Marriott

I’ll be joining 500 other authors, who along with our publishers, are offering all the proceeds from the sale of our books to support literacy charities. Over the years, RWA has raised more than a million dollars for this intensely worthy cause. This event is open to the public, so if you’re in the San Antonio area, I’d love to see you there!

Thursday, July 24th

9:45-11:15 Kensington/Sourcebooks Signing
Grand Ballroom, Rivercenter Marriott

Here’s where I need a clone. I’m scheduled to be in two places at once. I’ll start at the Kensington signing with my RITA nominated Plaid Tidings, then half way through the time, I’ll switch to the Sourcebooks event and my final book in the Royal Rakes series, Between a Rake and a Hard Place. If you’re attending the convention, I hope to see you both places!

3:15-4:15pm Sourcebooks Spotlight

Sourcebooks is home to some of romance’s hottests authors. Join me for a look at why it’s such a great publisher to partner with!

6-8pm Kensington Party

This is my chance to hobnob with the publishing pros and my fellow Kensington authors. One year, I spent most of the evening with one of my favorite authors, Mary Jo Putney! Imagine my fan-girl joy at being able to rub elbows with Victoria Alexander and Hannah Howell!

Friday, July 25th

3:00-5:00pm RITA/GOLDEN HEART Finalists Reception

I’m thrilled that my Plaid Tidings has been nominated for this prestigious award. It’ll be lovely to join my fellow nominees for this event.

4:30-5:30pm Kensington Spotlight

I’m going to have to hoof it pretty fast to make both of these events since they are in two different hotels! But I’ll be sure to put in an appearance because Kensington is a terrific publishing house and I’m proud to be part of their Zebra line.

6:00pm-? Sourcebooks Dinner

This is always a highlight of the week. Sourcebooks always treats us to a gastronomic celebration. Plus it’s a chance to visit with the likes of Grace Burrowes and the always irrepressible Jade Lee!

Saturday, July 26th

Plaid Tidings12:30-2:00pm Rehearsal for the Awards Ceremony 

Yeah, this is a big enough deal that we have to practice for it. I’ve been instructed to prepare an acceptance speech (even though I think encountering a snow storm in San Antonio is more likely than my winning!)

7:30pm  RITA Awards Ceremony

I’ll be honest. Every year I’ve attended RWA (and I’ve only missed one since 2002!) I’ve wondered how it must feel to be nominated for this honor. Now I know it’s equal parts humbling and exciting. Whether I win or not, it’s thrilling to be named with all the other finalists!

I’ll be posting some pics from the conference on my FB page this week, so pop over to my “Official Page” from time to time. And if you’re going to be in San Antonio, I really want to meet you!
