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?

Seriously?! That’s awesome!
And I love the resort it’s at–we drove by it a lot on the Disney World buses 🙂
I won’t be going to the conference but I am going to Disney World again this year about a month and a half later 🙂

Ok, it’s not awesome that the hotel was flooded 🙁 But very cool that they were able to reschedule so quickly.

LOL, totally understand what you meant Dara!
I checked out the website. I actually feel guilty that we’re going somewhere this nice. I should appoint someone to make sure I get to my workshops on time.

I currently live here (Orlando) but I’m moving next week! The timing is ridiculous, lol. I might come back and stay w/ my parents or something so I can attend 🙂

Katie – wow, serendipitous, but in the wrong direction. There must be a word for that. Oh, I am fortune’s fool…
Hope you can make it there.

AH! Look at those pretty new blurbs up at the top of your blog! CONGRATULATIONS Jeannie! I can’t wait to read your books this fall!

Thanks LiLa and likewise when your baby is released.
P.S. I heart Mary Jo Putney and Jade Lee. I still can’t believe they read the book.

Taking a gander this way from authorsofasiannovels to check out your blog. Was just wondering in the last day or so if you would be able to reschedule for Orlando. Glad to see you’re going! Have a great time. It should be especially exciting for you (IMO) since you have two books coming out. Catch ya later.

Hi Vicki! Great to see you here!
Conference has been a must for me since I first joined RWA. It started as my one yearly vacation when I was teaching. But yes, with two workshops and a book and novella coming out, I definitely have more incentive to get over there. Plus it’s Disney. They do spike everything with happy dust, and that’s…OK. 🙂
