Heading for Romanticon...are you?

October 7th through October 10th 2010

My very first Romance Convention!  Yippee!  I missed last year because of lack of funding. This year's tax return went to register and purchase airfare and hotel.

I have met so very many new friends online as an is my chance to meet all of you face to face and swap stories, share smiles, and simply enjoy meeting all of you.  I can't afford to go to all the marvelous conventions out there like RT or RWA...I am not quite to the "independently wealthy" category yet...give me another ten or twenty this is the only one I am attending this year.

I have an EC book in print, and will bring all the others in the form of cover flats to be signed (if anybody wants one).  I will be co-hosting/presenting a reader workshop titled "Recipe for Success", along with my pal Amber Skyze (I didn't even have to hold a shotgun to her back to get her to agree!) and we will be giving away loads of goodies.  It'll be everyone's chance to let EC know what you want most in your romance books, so plan to join us.  All results will go back to EC to help improve your reading experience!

It will be even more exciting because this is the 10th anniversary of Ellora's Cave Publishing, and EC has some fabulous things planned for their celebration!  The lovely but elusive Jaid Black will be there this year and she will be ready to sign all of those books you have been drooling over!

I will be there, signing books, chatting with fans, and having a blast.  I am bringing an extra-large suitcase so that I can smuggle out my favorite caveman and bring him home in the pet compartment of the plane.  Snort.

So let me know if you will be coming to Ohio in October, and I will make certain I look for you!

I wish I could attend....but at tax time, I'm insisting on the funds for next year!

Tina Donahue said...

Wish I could, but I have an EDJ. :(

I can't make it but you have loads of fun and take plenty of pictures!

And hug a caveman for me:-)

Cindy Spencer Pape said...

Can't wait to hug you in person, Fran!

Katalina Leon said...

I wish I were going so I could get a Fran Lee book signed in person! Have a wonderful time. I know your fans and friends will be thrilled to meet you. Please do some extra hunk hugging and male cover model patrol for those of us who can't... lol
Have a great time! I can't wait to hear the feedback you and Amber get from your seminar.

Somehow, when you're thinking romance books and hot sex, "Ohio" isn't the first place I think of! I know, I know -- and I live in the Midwest, too! I wonder if Ronald Lewis Weaver is going to be there -- he's the senior producer of "The Bold and the Beautiful" soap opera and has written a romance novel of forbidden love, "Soul Mates." It's involves a 26-year-old teacher who discovers and and her 18-year-old student are soul mates.Believe it or not (I was turned off at first by the whole student-teacher thing) the book has elements of spiritual guidance, mutual dreams, and finding and pursuing life's dreams. Now that he's a romance writer as well as a soap opera producer, maybe he'll be there, too!

Lucky you!! I'm happy you can go. Tell us all about it when you return. With pix, I hope. Jean

Amber Skyze said...

Can't wait to hug you in person Fran and Cindy and all the other fabulous EC authors. Oh and the cavemen too. ;)

Marianne Stephens said...

Take pictures! I'll miss this one...had a blast last year.

I will take my digital camera and extra photo storage media. As for hugging the cavemen, that depends on which ones want a glassy-eyed, panting, delirious romance writer trying to drag them into a broom closet...oh, wait...that would be all of us, wouldn't it? LOL!
