It's Conference Week & We're Celebrating

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got a phone call that congratulated us on our final in the RWA Golden Heart contest (an International contest for unpublished writers of romance).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.

Leave a comment this week and be eligible for Gift Cards or Books from The Crew or from autorgraphed books we snag at conference. Drawings to be held on July 4th.Books to be drawn:
Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance
Angi Morgan's .38 Caliber Cover-Up
Maureen McGowan's Cinderella Ninja Warrier & Sleeping Beauty Vampire Slayer

Cat Schield's Meddling with a Millionaire
Donnell Ann Bell will donate a $15.00 Amazon or B&N gift card
Heather Snow will donate a $10 electronic bookstore gift card
Simone St. John
G. Jillian Stone

Note: Offer void where prohibited. Prizes will be mailed to North America addresses only. If an Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) is available, the author may utilize that option for International participants. Odds of winning vary due to the number of entrants.

  1. Hope you have a good time. Wish I could be there.

  2. Kelly, I'll be holding down the fort here. Can't wait for the reports back!

  3. Enjoy yourself. I have never been to a conference before but it sounds like fun!

  4. I'm leaving at 5 a.m. in the morning. Bag is packed...weighed in at 48.8 lbs...whew! Only cried a little when the boy left for Oma's.

    New York, here I come!

  5. Heather, have fun! I don't even have to say that to you! I know you will, and your boy will have a wonderful time at Oma's.

  6. It's going to be fun seeing everyone's recap on the RWA. Hoping for lots of pictures and stories to share =)

  7. Thanks for sharing y'alls good times and great givaways! :-)

  8. Hope you all are having some major fun at the conference. I would love to go to something like this and hope to attend a conference within the next year or so to see some of my favorite authors.

  9. My critique partner and I have had an AMAZING week at the conference...but were disappointed to miss Maureen at the literacy signing (what a crowd!). Banner week, even with the elevator hassles. Hope you all had a great time, and I always love the blog!
