NOT YOUR USUAL SUSPECTS

A group blog featuring an international array of killer mystery, suspense, and romantic suspense writers. With premises and story lines different from your run-of-the-mill whodunits, we tend to write outside the box. We blog several times a week on all topics relating to romantic suspense and mystery, our writing, and our readers. We welcome all comments and often have guest bloggers. All our authors can be contacted separately, too, using their own social media links.

We find our genre delightfully, dangerously, and deliciously exciting - join us here, if you do too!

Romantic Times Convention 2107


Hello, Everyone!

I'm just back from the Romantic Times (RT) Convention in Atlanta where I had a productive, fun and awesome, if not exhausting, time! Since some of you might not have been able to attend, I wanted to share a few photos with you and let you know some of the activities that go on at a large conference the size of RT.

The following narrative outlines my week at RT in a nutshell (actually in a blog, but I digress). Here are some of the activities an author (well, at least THIS author) undertakes at a conference such as Romantic Times.

First of all, you meet up with friends, such as fellow Not Your Usual Suspect blogger and author extraordinaire, Toni Anderson.
You attend theme parties, like the 1920's Flapper Party, with Toni and another fellow Not Your Usual Suspect blogger (and my sis), Sandy Parks.
You meet with other awesome authors like our roommate and romantic suspense author, Gennita Low.
You participate in a panel on writing called Sequels, Series and Spin-Offs, because the conference is all about business, right?
You take time to do research at the Center for Disease Control and stop to visit author Margaret Mitchell's house (remember Gone With the Wind?) because...well, it's Atlanta!!!
You meet hot secret agent guys. :)
You do three (3) book signings because ... well, this is all about books, right? :)

You meet with awesome fans, friends and amazing readers! (This is, by far, my favorite part!)

 
 
And maybe, just maybe, you get a teeny bit crazy, not that I'd ever tell... :)
So, that's a wrap on another fun conference. I think I need to sleep for six weeks to recover. Hope sometime I'll get to meet YOU at a conference, too!! ~ Julie oxo

It looks and sounds like you had a fun and productive time at RT. Maybe some day I'll get to one of those and we can meet again.

Julie Moffett said...

Thanks so much for sharing your experience. Loved the pictures! And I was wondering if anybody was going to check out the CDC while there. Awesome! (And maybe another post sometime? ;D )

Toni Anderson said...

Why Toni, you can tell us all the stuff Julie left out. You know that good hush, hush stuff. Kidding aside, great pictures, Julie. Looks like a fun, informative time.
