Many of the Craftie Ladies of Romance will attend the Romance Writers of America National Conference this week, held in Atlanta, from July 17 to July 21. The four days are filled with workshops and meetings and lots of opportunities for the authors to get together.

A huge book signing on Wednesday night will feature 400 authors. Books are donated by the publishers and proceeds benefit literacy. The Love Inspired authors will have dinner together following the signing.

Friday night, our publisher will host a gala party at the Ritz-Carlton, which is always a dressy event. Saturday evening the RWA Awards Ceremony is equally glamorous and will highlight this year's finalists for the RITA and Golden Heart Awards. Can't wait to hear who wins!
Love Inspired Authors celebrate with Linda Goodnight
when she won her RITA!
In between all the fun activities, we'll be talking with our publishers and editors and learning the latest in industry news. We'll also attend workshops that help us improve our craft and write better books.

We promise to take lots of pictures and share what we've learned on the blog.

Have a great week! Hope to see some of you in Atlanta!

Happy reading! Happy writing!

Wishing you abundant blessings,
Debby Giusti

Trusting the Wrong Person Can Be Deadly... Lillie Beaumont's dark past has just turned up on her porch--fatally wounded. The dying words of the man imprisoned for killing Lillie's mother suggest hidden secrets. Criminal Investigations Division special agent Dawson Timmons agrees. He has his own motive for seeking the truth, and it gives Lillie every reason to doubt him. But even as they reluctantly begin to face painful secrets together, Dawson fears that a murderer is waiting to strike again. And this time, Lillie is right in the line of fire...

Watch for THE SOLDIER'S SISTER in September!
