This past weekend, I drove with Cathy Maxwell to the New Jersey Romance Writers (NJRW) Put Your Heart In A Book Conference (link). The theme was DREAM BIG - WRITE NOW. Cathy and I arrived just in time for the cocktail reception to celebrate the writing contest finalists. Above is Diana Cosby, Cathy, and Diane Gaston.
Kimberly Rocha from BOOK OBSESSED CHICKS (link) joined our group. After chatting with Kimberly, I realized that we both attended Lora Leigh's RAW - she's in the picture of line dancing at this link.
C.H. Admirand and Sara Humphreys chatted about their publisher, Sourcebooks.
The West Coast was represented by Margaret Mallory (Washington) and Jane Porter (California).
Cathy and I dined at the Kona Grill in memory of Hawaii. After eating healthy entrees, we splurged on a decadent dessert - butter cake with vanilla ice cream. There are no calories at conferences, right?
I am giving away two conference bags filled with fun swag plus:
Diana Cosby's HIS CAPTIVE
Diana Cosby's HIS WOMAN
Margaret Mallory's KNIGHT OF DESIRE
Eloisa James' KISS ME ANNABEL
Anthology, THE LADY MOST LIKELY, with Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Connie Brockway
