April showers...

I love them because I love writing when it’s raining. I also love how the rain has been turning the grass and trees so green again. Of course that makes me want to go outside and play, which I'm going to be doing at the end of the month when I attend the Romantic Times convention in Columbus, OH. This will be my first time attending the convention, and I’m really excited about meeting up with my writer friends that I don’t see nearly enough. I’m also excited because I’ve heard many readers attend the convention, too. I love meeting readers at book signings, so I’m really looking forward to, hopefully, meeting more!

I’m also a little nervous about attending the convention – for the usual reasons: Will my daughters get themselves up for school? Will my family eat while I’m away? Will anyone remember to feed the cat and the dog? I’m also nervous about going because I’ve heard the convention can get a little crazy. It sounds fun but exhausting too!

Has anyone – writer or reader – attended the convention before? Please share your experiences to calm my nerves!

Thanks & Happy Reading!
Lisa Childs

PS: Please remember my hunky hockey player's book is available this month!

Would love to go to convention, but most are held too far away.

Estella, I agree. Most are far away, so I'm thrilled that it's in Columbus this year -- which is within driving distance for me. Yay!

I love big conventions but I haven't been to one for years and have never been to a romance one. Just be yourself and do what feels like fun. Everyone will love you.
PS read the hunky hockey player yesterday - great story. I will put a review up this week.
