First of all, yes, I did just make my blog post title Twitter friendly. Ha! Also, I’m declaring the official hashtag, #RT09 so we can track our topic on Twitter, whether you’re attending or not!
Second, I’m currently at the lovely WRW writer’s retreat in Leesburg, Virginia. But tomorrow I’ll be off to Romantic Times 2009 in Orlando, Florida.
I know for some of you, your goal is to see me as much as you possibly can (I’m joking!) so I’m going to share my panel schedule with you so you can be sure to attend. I’m sure I’ll be brilliant and inspiring. Uh…anyway.
10:30-11:30 Samhain Publisher spotlight

If you’re going to be at RT, please find me and say hi. I’ll be the one with partially hot pink hair!
Now, I was left off the official RT schedule for my Wednesday panel, so if you have a moment, please help me spread the word to anyone you know going to RT. Blogs, facebook, twitter, yahoo groups, it’s all appreciated!
