I am very excited because I just registered for the first time for the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention. Romantic Times is a magazine devoted specifically to romance and all of its sub genres. They usually have reviews (more like book summaries) of over 250 books each month, along with author interviews and writing tips for aspiring authors. Each year they host an amazing event in April where authors from all different publishing houses come and offer workshops for readers, writers and booksellers.
This year it is being held in Orlando, Florida. This is about 45 minutes from where I live. When I found this out, I began saving up because this might be my one opportunity to attend. With the way the economy has been I wasn't sure if I could save enough money, but at least I didn't have to worry about travel costs. I was very diligent and I reached my goal this month. So, yay for me!!
I am very excited because I will get to meet other fellow romance readers. Nobody where I live reads, let alone romance. I am hoping that I will make lots of friends and meet some of my favorite authors. Get this, after looking at the agenda, fellow bloggers Jane from Dear Author and Sarah from Smart Bitches will be hosting a workshop on the ins and outs of blogging. How awesome is that? I hope I get the chance to meet them.
