I never did an official RWA Recap on my blog, so for those of you who wanted to see photos of the huge (fun) author event, here you go! The RWA is the "Romance Writers of America" and each year they have a huge conference attended by romance authors, editors, and publishers alike. I've always attended the Romance Times convention (RT), so this was my very first RWA. I loved it, and I'm planning on going to next year's conference as well--in Denver, CO.
Upper left photo, clockwise: Just registered for my very first RWA, RITA awards cermony (think Oscars for authors), obligatory feet-at-the-pool photo, with local RWA friends Elizabeth Bemis, Toni Blake, Jennifer Chance, and editor Lindsay Faber.

Upper left photo, clockwise: with my agent Nicole and author Lauren Layne at BlueZoo for dinner, with the namesake of the RITA awards, Rita Clay Estrada, my dress for the RITA ceremony, with authors Carrie Ann Ryan and Erin Nicholas
We had a great time!
