Presenting at LARA meeting on Sunday

morwa_presentingWow, this trip snuck up on me since I’ve been busy revising and packing items for the Ruby-Slippered Gift basket to be shipped off. This Sunday, June 13th, I’ll be presenting the “Page 1, 5, 50 – Keeping them Hooked” workshop for the Los Angeles Romance Authors (LARA) chapter at the Encino Barnes & Noble.

I’m rather excited as LARA was my home chapter and I’ll be seeing a lot of friends and familiar faces. It’s also a very good thing that I get to do this one more time before presenting “Selling the Hard Sell” at Nationals.

So I studied up on the “film” from my last presentation…just kidding — I just asked my friend to take a couple of photos. After looking at the pics, I realized a couple of things. I totally stand bow-legged while presenting! I don’t know if I’m going to be able to break that habit. The second thing is, hey, that’s a picture of Amy Tan on the wall at the MORWA B&N meeting room. I thought that was kind of cool.

I’m feeling better about this presentation after having done it once in New England. I’m going to tighten it up a bit for Sunday. Hope to see some friendly faces in So. Cal. Wish me luck!

Going to Disneyworld

After news of flooding in Nashville earlier this week and the subsequent closing of the Opryland hotel, RWA has relocated its conference this year to Orlando, Florida. Wow, that was fast!

So I’ve shuffled the travel arrangements around and we’re back in business.

In the interim, I’ve picked up another speaking gig. I’ll be presenting the “Keeping Them Hooked” workshop on June 13th to the Los Angeles Romance Authors (LARA). I’m quite happy about that since LARA was my home chapter and I’m sure to see plenty of familiar faces! Hmm….does that make my little jaunt to SoCal a business trip now?
