The Military Hero - Getting Ready for the RT Booklovers Convention

The RT Booklovers Convention offers three workshops about military heroes ... the first one is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13, 12 - 1 pm:

The Military Hero: A Look Into Creating Romantic Yet Realistic Men In Uniform

Military heroes. They’ve captured the imaginations and hearts of readers, with a fandom that grows every day. But creating a well-rounded military man for your romance is not easy. Balancing the swoon-worthy aspects of an alpha hero with very real issues, ranging from tragedies and loss to injuries and PTSD, can be complex. Join five of your favorite authors, two of whom have actually served our country in uniform, as they explore the many aspects involved in creating these alluring, tortured men.

Kennedy Lane and Angle Payne are also sponsoring the 12th Annual SOS America Salute on Thursday, May 14, 830-945.   Check out this link for more details and free tickets (link).
