Romance Writers of America is holding their annual national conference this week in the shining Big Apple. A little over a year ago, the 7 women who form The Crew of Get Lost In A Story barely knew one-another. But then on March 25th we all (with the exception of our lovely Simone) got a phone call that congratulated us on our final in the RWA Golden Heart contest (an International contest for unpublished writers of romance).
What can be better than that phone call? THE CALL. Shortly after or even before, all 7 of us received THE CALL from our soon-to-be editors asking if we would accept a contract of publication.
Time flies when you enter the publishing world...and we thought we'd share some special moments from our past year. Conference, finalists, winners, books published, about-to-be published, multi-contracts, and most importantly...new friends.
So stop by each day this week to catch up with a different member of The Crew. Remember, 6 of us are at conference and may not get to chat all day, but leave a comment anyway. You'll be entered into the drawing on July 4th where we'll give away several books and prizes.
