Authors and more wanted …

Some friends of mine are putting together Romfest, a book conference to be held June 20-24, 2012 in Gatlinburg, Tenn. They’re asking around to see which authors, agents, and editors might be interested in attending.

If you’re interested, contact Sharon Robinson at coord@romfest.com; Lydia Wiley at lcwiley@hotmail.com; or Trista Ann Michaels at tristaannmichaels@yahoo.com for more details. I think they’re looking for all interested authors, agents, and editors, although Romfest will probably be geared a little more toward the romance/fantasy/young adult genres like most of the local RWA conferences are.

I plan on going and giving some sort of media workshop. There will be several other workshops, a Saturday book signing, and several other events like a breakfast with the authors. Everything is still in the planning stages at this point, so I don’t have a lot of firm details.

Since the conference is going to be in 2012, it will have a Mayan, end-of-the-world theme, which I think will be a lot of fun. And if you’ve never been to Gatlinburg before, it’s a nice little town in the Smoky Mountains and home to attractions like Dollywood and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Yeah, Gatlinburg is known as being kind of a tourist trap, but it’s worth going to see one time.

I’ll announce more details here on the blog as I get them …

    Sounds like a cool conference to attend. I’m looking forward to the list of authors that are going to attend. Also, I’m currently reading a Jessica Andersen book. Her Final Prophecy world revolves around the 2012 Doomsday.

    Good luck with the round-up and planning!
