Later this month, July 23-27, I’m heading to San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America conference. You may recall that I was the emcee for their RITA and Golden Heart Awards Ceremony last year, and I had a blast. I was also nervous as all get out about speaking in front of 2,000 people. And it’s not like I don’t enjoy an audience, I’m just not used to one quite that big. But everything went well, and this year I’m going back to teach a workshop (Mastering the Deep Point of View), sign some books, and have a wonderful time visiting with friends. You see some of my writer friends live all over the US and they all come to this conference too, so we get the chance to catch up.
But what I really want to talk about is RWA’s “Readers for Life” Autographing for Literacy. On Wednesday, July 23, from 5:30-7:30, I will be signing my books at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter Hotel, 101 Bowie Street, San Antonio, TX 78205, in the 3rd floor ballroom. And it won’t just be me signing books, I’ll be there with about 500 other romance and YA authors. Best of all, it’s FREE and open to the public! And it’s for a wonderful cause. You see, at the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing, the proceeds from the books sales go to literacy organizations. Since 1990, RWA hsa raised more than $825,000 to fight literacy.
So, I hope I will see you at the Autographing for Literacy. You can meet me any many of your other favorite authors and support a wonderful cause at the same time.
