I’m furiously working on the second book in the Captain’s Orders series, but didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share my first RWA conference with you. I could just sum it up in one word - Wow! - but that wouldn’t give you any idea of the fun I had and the knowledge I sucked up. So many of my favorite authors in one place -- here it is in three parts!
Bright lights, big city! The 2015 Romance Writers of America conference took place in the Marriot Marquis hotel, right on Times Square. There was a feeling of sisterhood and encouragement in the air that was absolutely unbelievable. I felt it in the workshops, the book signings, the parties and just hanging around the bar talking.
Here I am with Sylvia Day, #1 New York Times and international bestselling author of The Crossfire Series and over 20 other award-winning novels in 40 countries. Not only did she take this pic with my book, she asked me to sign it to her!
At one of the workshops, I talked with Kresley Cole, author of The Professional and the Immortals after Dark Series.
All note-taking and no fun makes Kara a dull girl, so I made sure to attend this photo shoot that shows how a photographer shoots romance novel covers.
One attendee was the lucky female in the series of photos shot by Kimberly Killion, author and owner of The Killion Group, a book-branding company.
Harvey, the endlessly hunky hero/model, first appeared as a sexy Highlander.
Harvey also looks good as a modern action hero, doesn’t he? P.S. He was actually really funny and smart, too.
You know those book covers that just have a super-sexy torso? Harvey obviously knows how to bring it!
