Hanging with the heavy hitters. #wisrwa14

I just returned from an incredible weekend at the WisRWA Write Touch conference (#wisrwa14). It was an inspiring meet-up with romance authors from all over the country (a couple flew in all the way from California). The conference also included some industry heavy hitters.

And there was plenty of fun.

 

Me & Gina L Maxwell

Here Gina Maxwell and I find out we have something in common.

The highlight of the weekend for me was having Son of Thunder receive 2nd place in the FUTURISTIC/FANTASY/PARANORMAL/TIME TRAVEL category of the 2014 WisRWA Write Touch Readers’ Choice Award Contest.

It finished just behind A Soul For Vengeance by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Christa McHugh. My congratulations to her.

Now I have to come down out of the clouds and get back into my writing.
