And We're Off!
The Dishies are busy packing and tending to last minute details before piling into the cars for the caravan south to Orlando. We have a full conference schedule; packed with workshops, meetings, parties and chats with some of our favorite authors...and we're taking you along for the ride! Watch the blog for our daily updates accompanied by lots...and lots...of photos! We'll also be doing updates through our Romance Dish and individual facebook pages and on twitter.
One of the highlights of the annual RWA conference is the Literacy Booksigning. This event, which boasts over 500 published authors, will be held Wednesday night from 5:30-7:30 in the Pacific Exhibit Hall at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort and is open, free of charge, to the public. If you live in the Central Florida area, come on by! Proceeds of the book sales are donated to literacy charities in the host city. This year, a portion of the proceeds will also be directed to Nashville.
I've been working on my list of authors that I want to make sure I don't miss at the booksigning and that got me to thinking. If you were going to attend the booksigning, which authors would be at the top of your "must see" list? If you had the opportunity to chat with them, what would you ask? Here's the link to the list of authors who will be signing at this year's literacy booksigning. If you're planning to attend the literacy booksigning, I hope we'll have the chance to meet. The Dishies will be wearing black shirts, embroidered with The Romance Dish in hot pink. If you see us, please say hello!
As anyone who knows me can tell you, my camera rarely leaves my side and you can be sure I'll be busy taking pictures all week. So tell me. What would you most like to see photos of? The hotel? Booksigning? Parties? Workshops? Random shots of authors? Any particular authors? Tell us what you want to see, and what you want to hear about, and your intrepid Dishy reporters will do their best to post it here for you throughout the week.
Are you going to RWA National? If so, we hope to see you there. If not, be sure to check in here daily for news, photos and a few special surprises!
