Slam Jam Recap

I have to make this quick, since there’s a deadline fast approaching (as in NEXT FRIDAY) for my new novella.

I had a great time at Romance Slam Jam in Miami Beach last weekend. Seeing old friends (Hi, Betty!) and meeting new ones (Hi, Darlene!) and sipping a variety of mojitos. Plus picking up an award for Vegas Bites!

Those to whom I promised to post my notes from the Time Management Workshop, click here. I fully intend to flesh this out and post an update with clickies and all that on my website, but the novella has to be finished first (that whole managing time thing, you know?)

Adrienne and Tisha put on a helluva conference in a beautiful hotel with great food and wonderful entertainment. Those ladies deserve monumental kudos for all their work.

Next year, Slam Jam will be in Chicago. If you love multicultural romances, this is the stop for you. They already have an awesome lineup and I’m sure it’s going to be fantastic!

The website is under construction. The tentative launch date is June 1, 2007 at:
