Next weekend, Romance Writers of America hold their annual conference in San Francisco. On July 30, 2008, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the San Francisco Marriott hotel (Yerba Buena Ballroom), over 500 romance-fiction authors will sign books donated by publishers--with the proceeds of the sales going to literacy charities. RWA has raised over $600,000 for literacy since the inception of the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing event.

There will be several Harlequin Romance and Harlequin Presents authors in attendance -- many of whom you've met on this blog!

Harlequin Romance authors signing books are:

Claire Baxter
Linda Goodnight
Carol Grace
Barbara Hannay
Jessica Hart (you still have time to win a copy of Jessica's Newlyweds of Convenience as well as a special tote bag if you hurry over to Harlequin Romance Authors blog.)

If you live in the Bay area, or are taking part in the conference, do drop by to say hello. They will love to see you.

And if you are signed up for the conference, don't forget that --

Barbara Hannay, Barbara McMahon, and Jessica Hart -- along with editor Lucy Brown -- will be giving a panel entitled "Emotion, Emotion, Emotion: Writing Romance with Global Appeal" from 9:45 to 11:45 on Friday morning (August 1).

And has anyone else noticed that two authors have had the same covers recently? My only complaint is that I didn't get it!

It's slow everwhere, must be the dog days of summer :)

Hi Snookie!

We've actually had severe weather warnings here -- and it's pouring with rain! Spoke way too soon...
