Indie Romance Convention – I’ll be there!

Back in July I received an email from a lady who was putting together an Indie Romance Convention who asked if I’d like to take part. I’ve never attended a romance author convention but I’d been to my fair share of sci-fi conventions (DragonCon still being the largest I’ve attended.)

I was tickled to be asked and my first instinct was to say yes! Then the fear of failure set in. All those scary ‘what if’ scenarios start playing inside my head, the biggest one being, “What if” no one bothered to approach my signing table? My cellphone doesn’t have games. What will I do for a whole weekend? 

I finally pushed that doubt and fear aside and told my Hubby I was going to do it anyway. If nothing else, I would get the opportunity to meet a great list of authors and bloggers so it was win-win anyway I looked at it. I emailed Laurie back and said to sign me up!

The list of authors attending is small but that doesn’t mean they aren’t great authors. Many of them are bestsellers and currently hold ranking position on Amazon.Com and other retailers. As this is the first event, everyone is just getting their toes wet, so I know every year will get bigger and better. Below is the list of particpating authors signed up to appear.

Gabrielle Bissett
Claudy Conn
Danielle Blanchard
Lori Brighton
Eve Langlais
Kallypso Masters
Candice Stauffer
Kim Killion
Jennifer Jakes
Caris Roane
Amanda J. Greene
Teresa Gabelman
Hayden Braeburn
Toni Aleo
Annabel Joseph
Leia Shaw
Leigh Savage
Deborah Court
Donna McDonald
Lily Graison

The convention is being held Oct. 4th & 5th, 2013 in Lebanon Tennessee. Registration is now open for those wishing to attend. They’re also looking for volunteers to help out in a few areas. For all the details, visit the Indie Romance Convention website.

If you’re in or around Tennessee, I would love to meet you next year! Head over to the convention website and have a look and don’t forget to tell your friends. This may be something they would be interested in too.

I hope to see you there!

    LOL, you have the same fear as I do plus I am afraid I’m going to giggle non stop if someone does talk to me. I do better typing ;p Looking forward to meeting you and the others.

    Well maybe we can sit near each other. At least that way we’ll have someone to talk to…or giggle at, while watching everyone else have fun! hehe (Although I’m known to hyperventilate when nervous so that should be interesting.)
