Though the first day, Friday was a down pour and I felt as if I would never get dry and warm again, the event was wonderful!
Maryland Romance Writers did a terrific job this year with having interesting and exciting events going on every hour of the three day festival. Book readings, raffles, panels on romance writing, steampunk, erotica, chocolates, Jane Austen, Victorian tea, healthy writing and everything else in between. I think there was a little something for everyone. Great job to all my friends and fellow writers who were there and the dedication they showed to bring about a fantastic weekend.
I even had the chance to be on a panel along with Christi Barth, Eliza Knight and Amy Villalba about "How to Become a Romance Writer". A great big thank you to our fearless leader, Sharon Buchbinder for helping us out in a pinch too. I also had the honor of doing a reading and raffle with Christi Barth, Eliza Knight and Rebecca York. I read from my latest finish project--Wanted: One Ghost (check out my latest excerpt) which I hope people enjoyed and raffled off my basket themed on the story line with local ghost stories, teas, milled corn meal from Wye's Mill (one of the oldest mills still in production in Maryland) and a special chatelaine I had made for the occasion.
All in all it was a great time!
