In about a month, Gordon and I are going to the Romantic Times Convention in Kansas City, MO. It’s held from May 1 – 5th. Here is the convention website : RT Convention.
RT Con used to be a little wild in the earlier years, but now they have a YA track and most of the half-naked men are gone. 🙂 It’s safe to bring teenage children. Mostly it’s panels and workshops during the day, publisher parties and themed balls at night, and lots of hanging out and drinking in random places. There is also a giant book fair. I mean a giant book fair. Huge. If you come, wear comfortable shoes.
Here is our schedule:
We are flying in and will be hanging around.
9:000 pm – Meeting with E., (private event.)
11:15am – 12:15pm Writing Action Scenes For Romance
6:00pm – 8:00pm – Dinner with J.M. (private event.)

The rest of the time we will be floating about. If you are a friend or someone we know professionally, please let us know if you would like to have lunch or drinks. 🙂 If you are a fan who is attending and wants to meet us, we will be around; however, if you want a guarantee, band together into a small group and we will meet you specifically and have coffee and hang out.
