I went to RT Booklovers last week, and it was my first large romance-oriented convention. I’ve mainly gone to SF/F conventions before this.
I had a huge blast! Meeting readers and other authors who love and support romance was grand!
I was also very warmed by the reception of LGBTQ writers. I felt at home and accepted and no one turned their nose up. I know gay romance isn’t everyone’s thing, but there wasn’t a sense of rejection. In fact, I had plenty of discussions about diversity in sexuality throughout RT.
There’s so much more I want to talk about, but I’m on a deadline to get Takeover’s copyedits back and a teaser for the next book cleaned up…
Oh! Yes. There will be a teaser at the end of Takeover. Muhahahah! The working title is Just Business and I’m about 30,000 words into it and really loving the characters.
I can’t wait to share Justin and Eli with you, too. They’re… well. You’ll see.
