As promised, here's a few more pics from the Romance Writers 2007 National Conference in Dallas of the bigger names in Romance writing... if you are interested in a more "inside" information and pictures, feel free to visit my personal blog at

The first pic is Lisa Kleypas... the first keynote speaker at the RWA convention, and one very, very nice person and fab author!

Next up is Lisa Jackson, second key note speaker, and also a wonderful and gracious author.

These pics are from a Literacy book-signing, btw, where RWA raised over $50K to help support Literacy- major kudos to the organization for helping with this most worthy cause!

My next "star watching" pic is of the ever-amazing, never dull, and most fan-orientated author I've ever met, Sherrilyn Kenyon. Her costumes are a sight to see, but her writing is what's truly amazing!

And last for today, but not nearly least, Christina Dodd. If you haven't read "Some Enchanted Evening" already- you must! All of Christina's work is well worth reading... but not only is she a major talent, she's a major sweetie too.

Okay... and now onto the stuff you really stopped by for (LOL) here's the freebies! :

Missing Member by Jo Ann Power

If you like a great mystery with an interesting cast of characters, a fabulous locale (set in the political hot-bed of Washington D.C.), a heroine who is not afraid to use her brain or her gun, and a mysterious James-Bond-like bodyguard, then you’ll love this book!

I read it in two days- couldn’t put it down. Definitely a keeper!

One of the perks of attending the Romance Writers Association National Conference is meeting your favorite romance authors in person. I’m pictured here with a very multi-talented NY Bestseller who is also an absolutely delightful, gracious woman. (I'm the very non-recognizeable author on the right!)

Can you guess who it is? (If you are a romance or suspense reader, this should be an easy guess… if you are not sure, guess anyway! It doesn’t matter if you have a right answer.)

Email your guess to by Saturday July 21, 2007 for your chance to win a goodie bag assortment of author give-a-ways I picked up at the RWA Conference!

Winner will be picked at random and announced on July 25- Good luck!!


I will be posting some other fun pics and tidbits throughout the next few weeks, but if you’d like a better insider perspective of the conference, be sure to visit my personal blog at
