How to meet your favorite author in person

A number of readers have asked me if all romance authors know each other. The answer is well, yes. Authors are readers first, after all, and we love to meet our favorite authors too!

How do authors get to know each other? The same way readers get to know authors. We go to book signings (and we do have a bit of an advantage here…we go to a lot of book signings).

The most time efficient way to meet your favorite authors is to attend the annual literacy signing at the Romance Writers of America conference. If you went this year, you could have met several hundred authors at just one signing! This year, the conference was held in San Francisco. ( Tip~ The 2009 conference is scheduled for July 15-18 in Washington, DC. Plan ahead.)

Here are a few pictures from the recent 2008 conference.
