Welcome to Orlando, Florida and the 2017 Romance Writers of America's national conference. This year's conference is at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. Thanks to the amazing Shannon who checked us into the hotel, I'm in a lovely 17th floor room with a gorgeous view. Tonight, I watched three different fireworks displays from our room window!
The author sightings started almost immediately upon arriving. Cathy Maxwell stopped by while we were checking in to the hotel to tell me to be sure to get the Cathy Maxwell Room Key. Avon sponsored our room keys this year and each one has a quote from one of their authors. Too cool!
Here's a few author sightings from Day One: Virginia Kantra, one of my favorite people and an immensely talented author. Check out her recent Dare Island contemporary romance series.
Terri Osburn, another talented contemporary romance author and a long-time friend. She has a new series beginning in September!
Sharon Sala and Cindy Dees. Two of the nicest ladies around!
With Laura Lee Guhrke. She's up for a RITA!
Sarah Morgan and RaeAnne Thayne, two Dish favorites and the nicest women!
With Janna MacGregor. I highly recommend her historical romance debut, The Bad Luck Bride.
I have more from Day One to share but have to run to a workshop right now. Check back later or stop by my Facebook page for more photos!
