This year my sister-in-law, who is also a writer, and I were fortunate enough to attend the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Columbus, Ohio (Where we are from YAYAYAYA!!) and met some fabulous people. I have put together some pictures in a vlog for you guys to check out just so you can see who all we got to meet and what we got to do at the conference this year.
(The boys pictured were Mr. Romance contestants...so yes, those are the guys you see on the covers. LOL)
Conferences are GREAT places to network. I cannot stress enough how important attending events are to your writing career. I mean, they talked about networking pretty much the whole conference.There were over 300 published authors at this event, as well as some big time agents. I spoke personally to tons of big time authors, and I'll admit there were times I was like PLEASE rub a smidgen of your talent on me. LOL
I met tons more authors, but couldn't fit them all in there like I wanted, but I will say this. All the ones pictured above signed books for me, and I'll even tell you a secret--some gave me goodies and free books, even ones that haven't hit shelves yet. Ahhhhh, I know, right?
Okay, sorry, I'll stop rubbing it in and get to the good news for you guys. I have a SIGNED YA novel, an unsigned YA novel, and a signed poster to give away today.
Now, your probably asking yourself, how do I win? So glad you asked that, and just because I HATE complicated giveaways, I'm going to make this one simple.
