Conference Photo

The Quirkies had a wonderful time at the 2009 Let Your Imagination Take Flight conference. Natascha Fawthrop, an aspiring romance writer from Albany, New York, drove all the way to Framingham for the book signing. We had a great talk, covering such topics as JR Ward, the importance of critique partners, and not being afraid to think outside of the box. We also decided we do not like to be "dismissed" in any way! (I also had a terrific, if not completely sober, conversation with Mary Pat Glynn on Friday night. She told me I have "chutzpah"- I am sensing a common theme!). Here are a couple of photos from the book signing. I was Jennifer Greene's "assistant" at her book signing table, which basically meant we gabbed with each other and her fans.  We discussed how much we both love adverbs! I love her!

Nina, I am getting such a kick out of seeing the pics on The Quirky Ladies. Can't tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you, Jennifer, Ash, and Dalton.

Ash and Dalton...LOVE the book. I think it is hilarious. Nice work guys.

Natascha, it was great to meet you, too! I hope we'll see you around more often, and we'll be there to celebrate your writing milestones, too. Yeah, we get dissed a lot for writing romance. You know what I say? Let them try to sit down and write one! It's not easy, and it's something you absolutely have to love doing.
Believe me, the support you'll receive from your fellow writers will more than make up for the disses. Like telling another author you love their book! Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.
