See You In Atlanta
This is the week of insanity and frantic last-minute wardrobe planning for those of us in the romance writing world. In a few days we will all board planes to Atlanta and converge on that big sweaty city for a week of industry networking and gossip, a week of editor and agent meetings, a week of catching up with the writer friends we don't see all year.
And of course, since we've spent the other 360 days of the year mostly alone except for the imaginary people and voices inside our own heads, we are an interesting group to observe in such an intensely social setting.
If you're going to be in Atlanta on Wednesday, July 26th, stop by the Marriott Marquis downtown, 5:30-8:30 PM, for RWA's annual literacy autographing, where a buttload of authors (including me!), will be crammed into a giant room signing books. It's fun, it's dizzying, and it's a good cause. Plus, I occasionally like someone to stop by my table and pretend they're a fan of mine, and who better to do that than Naked Page people?
Here's a link to a complete list of authors attending.
And if you're going to be at the conference, I hope you'll say hi if you see me wandering the hotel.
I'll try to report in here to let you non-conference-goers know what's going on. Bethany has a head injury, and she's going to be my roommate this year. This should be fun. Well, she's not going to be my roommate because of the head injury, though that might make more sense (Does she realize what she's getting into? Actually, she does--she's had the misfortune of sharing sleazy hotel rooms around Europe with me...). I will not tell the story of how she got the head injury here, but I am tempted to make up something good.
Oh, and need I point out that this your last week to find The Sex Quotient in regular stores? Yes, I must point it out. You can buy an autographed copy at the literacy thing Wednesday night, by the way. I think there might be copies of Once Upon a Seduction there for me to sign too.
