RWA Nationals - Here We Come!

This week we're doing something a little different at the Rockville 8 - we'll be posting "live" via comments from the Romance Writers of America National conference. Join us of we journey down to Orlando, Florida to make publishing history!

Maybe not the history that gets into school books, but...this is RWA's 30th anniversary year - yay! - and we'll be celebrating Michelle's presidency, Keely's Golden Heart nomination, Yvonne's new agent, a couple of birthdays, the impending birth of a baby girl (the R8 are unofficial fairygod aunties!!), and the humongous number of requests we'll be getting from all the networking and pitching we'll be doing.

This year will be Marjanna's first official Nationals - woot! And Candy will moderate a workshop for the first time . Lisa will mark her THIRD July in a row with time in Florida. Will she post on travel karma? You'll have to check back and see.

All of us will miss Nichole, who'll be holding down the fort at home and making sure that DC is a bit cooler upon our return. Right, Nic? Nic...?


  1. Can't wait to see everyone there! Keely it's going to be fabulous and I just know it's your year! Nationals rocks!!

  2. Holding down the fort is a tough job, but someone's gotta do it!


    While the majority of the Rockville 8 is away, I'll be at one of our oldest universities comparing and contrasting plot structure as a way to emphasize theme in recent Pulitzer Prize-winning novels as well as the classics of English Lit.

    That just might rate a *Yikes!* as well as a *Sigh!*

    But I'll also be glued to! Can't wait to read about your RWA National Conference experiences!
