RWA2008 Conference Highlights

Over the next few days I hope to post some of the highlights of the workshops I attended at the RWA National Conference last week.

RWA2008To kick off the highlights posts, here is a photo from Saturday night’s Awards Ceremony of myself and a couple of my pals from Writers at Play.

From left to right, me, author Stacey Kayne and author Leslie Dicken. I’ll try to post some additional photos as time allows, but for now Janice Lynn has a few nice photos up on her blog and Tawny Weber chronicles our “legs” photos from years past.
