At the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing, hundreds of romance authors meet with and sign books for fans in this two-hour event, with the proceeds from book sales going to literacy organizations.
In 2018, Romance Writers of America raised more than $38,000 to benefit ProLiteracy and the Literacy Coaltion of Colorado. Since 1990, RWA has raised over $1 million for literacy organizations!
According to ProLiteracy, the amount donated from the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing over the years has helped 40,000 adults learn to read, and in 2017, ProLiteracy recognized this accomplishment by honoring RWA with their President's Award.
It's time to reinvent the Reader/Author experience for Romance lovers and step away from the ordinary conference experience we've all become too familiar with... Don't just grind through trade show style events--but instead slow down to celebrate and get the opportunity to dive into what makes each genre of romance special and what attracts us to these books to make them "keepers".
The Romance Retreat is a magical and immersive, hands-on experience celebrating all genres of Romance! We're opening the doors wide open to published romance Authors to be a part of this launch. We also want to invite Readers to indulge themselves in something that should never be called a guilty pleasure. Books, and a love of reading, are something to celebrate! Come to the Retreat and have the chance to truly meet and get to know the romance Authors you read!
Join me at one of my very favorite events: the New England Chapter Romance Writers of America "Let Your Imagination Take Flight" conference! This year's featured guests will be Sonali Dev, Penny Reid, and Damon Suede. And if I'm lucky, I'll get to sit with my New England book bestie, Jade Webb again! I'll be signing all of my current releases, including the multi-award-winning Snapdragon and The Art of Worship and I'll also have copies of my author-focused/craft books on hand.
Location: Boston Marriott Burlington, One Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, MA 01803
You probably know by now that I I really, really, really love my wine. What you might not know about me is that I’m a Certified Sommelier.
