Conference Virgin

As you can tell from the title I’m a conference virgin. I plan to pop that cherry so to speak this weekend. Tomorrow I’m heading out to the NEC RWA Imagination in Flight Conference. I’m excited. I signed up late because I wasn’t sure if my work schedule would allow me to attend. It turns out it did. I’m not pitching this time. I have a few full lengths that would be appropriate and I would like to pitch, but they aren’t fully edited.
Because you never know when you might find yourself in the elevator with an editor or agent, I am prepared “just in case”.
I’m looking forward to a weekend of hanging with friends and fellow authors. There are a lot of EC authors who belong to NEC. It will be nice to put faces to a few of the authors I don’t know but I talk with on different loops.
I’ve spent the last few days getting promo stuff together and getting the house prepared for mom to be gone for 2 days. Technically I’ll be home Saturday night, but still…
I’ll report next week on all the fun things I learned or experienced.
For now I’ve got a lot of things to do.
Happy Thursday!


  1. Have a wonderful productive time at the conference, Amber!

  2. How FUN!!! Where is it Amber? You'll have a blast. I love conferences and having the opportunity to schmooze with other writers.

  3. Thanks Kaye!

    Regina it's in Framingham, MA

  4. You'll love it, Amber. I always come back from conferences fired up with new ideas!

    Are you going to RT or RomantiCon? I'll be at both of those and would love to meet you in person!

  5. Helen I am going to RomantiCon. Can't wait to meet you too!

  6. The computer ate my comment! Oi!
