NECRWA Conference, April 27-28, 2012

conf_logo-siteRNN talks to Penelope Watson, romance author, blogger and member of NECRWA (New England Chaper of the Romance Writers' of America about the upcoming Spring Conference, April 27-28, 2012, held in Salem, Massachusetts.


Penelope's Top Seven Reasons Not To Miss The 2012 NECRWA Spring Conference (April 27-28, 2012)


  1. Fabulous speakers: Including writing guru Michael Hauge, bestselling author-turned-indie-success story Marie Force and RITA award winner Kristan Higgins.
  2. Killer work-shops on craft, industry and marketing: (Hey, even Penelope is giving a talk!-- Penelope Channels Miss Manners: How To Promote Yourself Without Peeving Everyone Off).
  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.
  4. Not Just A Pitch, A Critique: Forget about that stressful oral pitch. At the NEC conference, you can submit 10 pages of your WIP prior to meeting with an editor/agent of your choice. It's a unique opportunity to discuss your manuscript and hopefully get a request!
  5. Cocktails, Psychics and Tiaras: Don't miss the chance to schmooze with New England's finest romance writers and professionals. There will be cocktails, psychic readings, and a nice assortment of tiaras on Friday night.
  6. Ghost Tour: Want to get up close and personal with Salem's past? Ghost Hunters Marley Gibson and Patrick Burns investigate the paranormal side of Salem.
  7. Book Fair Extravaganza: Participate in Saturday's book fair with your fellow authors. It's a festive occasion to meet and greet readers in the Salem area.

My RWA 2011 Experience

literacy_crowdLast week, I went to New York City for the 2011 Romance Writers of America conference – ok, not so much for the conference itself, but for the literacy signing and some of the publisher parties. So, I took the bus to NYC to stay with Carolyn in Brooklyn. Early on Tuesday afternoon (6/28), I made the trek from Brooklyn to Times Square. While the signing started at 5:30PM, it was a beautiful day, and I thought I would play tourist for a couple of hours. However, when I finally found the Marriott Marquis, there was a HUGE line for the signing. I decided to just suck it up and get in line.
