NECRWA Literacy Signing

Kristan_MeToday, I made the treck up to Salem, Massachusetts to attend the Book Fair/Literacy Signing that the New England Chapter of The Romance Writers of America held as part of their annual conference. Last year's event was my first ever book signing. The crowd is rather small which makes it easy to talk to any and all authors. It is a very different scene from the mob scene of the literacy signing at RWA's annual conference. I would recommend this local event to all romance aficionados. (By the way, the picture to the left is of Kristan Higgins and me taken by Judith Arnold)

NECRWA Literacy Book Signing

The New England Chapter of the Romance Writers of America Annual Conference begins tomorrow in Salem, MA. On Saturday afternoon, there is a multi-author book signing event at the Hawthorne Hotel. Proceeds are donated to charity. Doors open to the public at 4:30PM (conference attendees get in early at 4:00).

 

I went to the signing last year and had a great time. There weren't too many people, so it was fairly easy to talk to the authors - and get books signed! I highly recommend this event to romance readers.

  1. Fabulous speakers: Including writing guru Michael Hauge, bestselling author-turned-indie-success story Marie Force and RITA award winner Kristan Higgins.

  3. Salem, Massachusetts: You just can't beat this historic New England town. It's got charm, great shops and restaurants, and maybe even a ghost or two to entertain.
