The Romance Writer’s of America conference in San Diego was A-Mazing! First off, the city is beautiful and everyone there was so friendly. San Diego is California at it’s finest! The conference, itself, was great—workshops, networking, education, opportunities, seeing old friends, making new friends and fun, fun, fun! Just as I’ve done every year since 2009, I’m going to share the conference in pictures.
The first selfie of the trip—Stacey, Melissa Ohnoutka (our roomie), and yours truly.
Amazingly, we didn’t get lost.
It didn’t take us long to find Seaport Village.

We were all helping set up LBTC and, more importantly, tweeting about it.
Umm…and Stacey, well, she was more enthusiastic than others.
Taking pics and tweeting them and then taking pics of them being tweeted. Hours of fun.
Enjoying the wildlife.

Switching gears and being a professional. Pimping with The Killion Group. (Shameless plug – we do more than just book covers. Check out all our services, including editing, formatting, and PR!)
Smoozing with the delightful, gorgeous TJ Mackay of InDtale Magazine.

Why, yes, he is dropping his pants to change into a kilt. I may or may not have peeked.
Just me and Julian. Don’t be hatin’.
Stacey and Ruth (who is a regular contributor to MuseTracks’ Hump Day Kick Start) playing hooky again.
Sailing around the bay with some awesome ladies. This was one of those times of “what happens on the sailboat, stays on the sailboat”.
Sailboat, sunset, navy ship, I should win an award for this pic.
Last night in San Diego and the drinks flowed. Mmm…rum and coke.
All dolled up for the Rita/Golden Heart ceremony.
A trip isn’t complete until TSA searches your luggage.
There you have it. More than you ever wanted to see of our trip to San Diego. We’re looking forward to the 2017 RWA National Conference in Orlando, Florida!
