California here we come!! from Lisa Mondello

Tomorrow I will be boarding a plane to head out to Anaheim California to attend the yearly Romance Writer's of America conference.  During this week, in between all the Olympic news, you'll be able to get updates on the latest happenings from the RWA camp.  If you want to follow what's happening at the RWA conference and are on Twitter, keep checking hashtag #RWA12 for updates.

I'm always excited to go to the RWA conference.  It's not only because this year the conference is across the street from Disneyland (which I love), but because I get the opportunity to reconnect with my agent, my editors and all my Love Inspired author friends who will also be attending.  It's the one time of the year where we get to kick back and catch up on everything from life to what's going on in the romance industry.

One of my favorite things each year is attending the Harlequin Party.  It's always so much fun to see the Love Inspired gang dancing on the dance floor and letting down their hair.  The other highlight is the RITA and Golden Heart ceremony.  That's on Saturday night, so if you ARE following the happenings of RWA this week, Twitter will be abuzz with news of who won awards.  We have a few Love Inspired folks who are up for the awards, so make sure you check Twitter for updates.

Okay, it's time for me to get to packing.  See you on Twitter and right here on the Craftie Ladies blog!

Blessings,

Lisa Mondello

I'm packing, too, Lisa! So glad you're attending.

Not sure I'm going to Disneyland. I've been there a number of times, as well as Disney World.

Looking forward to eating fresh seafood and hugging friends, especially the Craftie Ladies who will be attending! :)

Sadly, I'm not going this year. This will be the first time I've missed since 2003, the year I won the Golden Heart. Lisa, do your Twitter feeds go onto Facebook? I'm not on Twitter. I figured I could only do justice to one social network site. :)
