Are you free on Wednesday night and live in the NYC area? Then you should come on by the RWA “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing. Over 450 authors will be in attendance, including yours truly. The 2015 “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing will be on Wednesday, July 22, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the New York Marriott Marquis
in the Westside Ballroom.
This event kicks off the RWA National Conference every year and it is a blast! Every year it seems like there are more and more events to go to but I really have to pick and choose what I attend. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of published authors aren’t rolling in stacks of cash. Therefore, one must choose wisely when deciding where and when to reinvest those hard earned advances and royalty payments.
For me, the RWA conference, will always be on my “must=do” list. The signing is awesome and the parties are great (Thank you Sourcebooks) but being able to connect with my fellow writers is the main reason for attending. Writing is a solitary profession and it’s invigorating to gather with other women who are in the same situation. When I talk about writing/books/industry stuff with my husband or family…their eyes begin to glaze over after about ten minutes. Hey, I get it, this isn’t their bag, man. But at RWA writers are surrounded by fellow writers and everyone there loves talking about writing, plotting, character arcs, promotion, and, well…you get the idea.
Here are some pics from RWA 2014 in San Antonio….
