from Emily Bryan. . .
In February of 2007, I wrapped my car around a lightpole on the way to a speaking engagement for the Iowa Romance Novelists. (I want to send a shout out to them today since Des Moines is flooding. Stay dry, girls!) Since then, I don't schedule any writing gigs that involve winter travel. But with each spring, my travel season begins. I love connecting with readers and writers, so here's my speaking and signing itinerary for the coming months:
March 26-27: NECRWA's Let Your Imagination Take Flight
Sheraton Tara, Framingham, MA
April 17, 2010 ~ Maine RWA Chapter
Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant Street, Brunswick
April 24, 2010 ~ Connecticut Fiction Fest
Sheraton Four Points, Meriden, CT
I'll share my new "My Husband married a Hooker" workshop on adding writing hooks to your prose.
April 26-May 1, 2010 ~ Romantic Times Convention
I'll be part of the HOW TO BE A BLOG QUEEN panel, help host a Mad Hatter Tea Party and have a ball with readers and writing buddies all week in Columbus, Ohio! Plan now to join me! The parties and workshops are great during the convention, but if you want more hands-on writing craft help, sign up for the pre-conference, Aspiring Writers Workshops. For two extra days, I'll teach along with New York Times Bestseller, Bobbi Smith and Judi McCoy.
How to be a Blog Queen Thursday, April 29th from 11:15 - 12:15
The Internet is a treasure chest of promo opportunities — and a potential minefield. Learn how to negotiate cyberspace for maximum exposure for minimal dollars, while avoiding shooting yourself in the cyber-foot! With John Scalzi and JA Konrath onboard, this panel is destined to be lively and entertaining!
July 28-31,2010 ~ RWA National Conference, Nashville, Tennessee
I'll be part of a panel discussing "Writing as:The Trials of a Schitzophrenic Author." More and more writers use multiple pen names. Come learn when it makes good business sense.
I'll also join 400+ authors who are participating in the charity Literacy signing. Good time guaranteed!
So will I be coming to a town near you? Are you attending any of these conferences? If you're attending a different conference, when and where will you be?
