Off to NEC-RWA
Tomorrow I’m off to the New England Chapter of RWA (Romance Writers of America) annual conference. It’s no great travel adventure, just a hour drive up route 95 from my little home. I’ve been several times–it’s always a great event, and I come back replete with knowledge (for at least a few minutes–I love learning new things, part of the reason the Internet is dangerous for ) and social interaction with my fellow writers. I’m excited and curiously nervous. I keep changing my mind about what to wear, as if that matters. My promo materials are packed. I got a haircut today. And tomorrow I’m off to talk writing and books, learning about writing, meet new people, reacquaint myself with people I rarely see, and more than likely drink a bit too much. Oh, and sell books! Let’s not forget the book signing on Saturday. 3:30-5:30 PM at the Burlington, MA Marriott.I’ll not only be talking about books, and acquiring books, I’ll be selling books. Perhaps this is the source of my anxiety. I should have all my ebooks available, but I’m really not sure how one goes about “autographing” ebooks. I have postcards for some of the books, but not all of them. And now I’m panicking a little about that.
In any case, I’ll be back on Saturday night, with a lot of new freebie books to read, and, I hope, some words of wisdom to impart!
