Romance Slam Jam

I'm looking forward to attending the 13th annual Romance Slam Jam. The Slam Jam is a celebration of black authors and readers of romance. Every subgenre will be represented - contemporary, historical, suspense, paranormal, inspirational, etc. This year's event takes place April 30 to May 4, 2008, at the Wyndham O'Hare Hotel in Chicago.

For more information on the event - and to register, if you're interested - visit the Slam Jam Web site, More than 60 authors are attending, and there's a book signing May 3.

I'm especially looking forward to attending the Intimate Sessions with Bevarly Jenkins. I loved Sexy/Dangerous. Have you read it? The heroine is a bodyguard with attitude assigned to protect a world-famous scientist. I'm also looking forward to getting a copy of Kayla Perrin's How to Kill a Guy in 10 Days.

In addition to the author meet-and-greets, there are several business and craft workshops scheduled. I'm interested in Kayla Perrin's How to Plot Your Novel, Believable Characters by Marilyn Tyner, and Put Mystery and Suspense into Your Writing by Gloria Mallette. I'll be sure to share the tips I learn.

If you do attend the Slam Jam, I hope you'll stop by my Reader Session. It's 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., May 1.
