There is going to be a M/M presence this year at the Romantic Times convention. There usually is but this time, it’s going to be a PRESENCE. Mary Calmes, Amy Lane and a few other M/M authors will be in attendance to represent the genre and I can’t think of better ambassadors.
Certainly not me since I seem to be spelling challenged this morning.
The “Fantastic” Mary Calmes was spotlighted in an interview on USA Today where she graciously mentioned me in the esteemed company of TJ Klune, Anne Tenino, Ariel Tachna and Jordan L. Hawk… really fantastic writers in their own right. And a few other people’s right. And a couple of lefts too.
It’ll be interesting to see where the genre goes over the next couple of years. It is certainly evolving. *grins* And woooot! 😀

You kinda deserve to be mentioned with the rest….just saying.
Pfah, I feel like I slid in under the radar. Those are all some AWESOME kickass kind of wordcutters there. 😀
Sheesh…and I hit reply before I’m done.
Dork! I AM A DORK! Need more coffee.
Heh. Thank you honey. Really. *squishes*
That is just AWESOME!! Happy to see that Romantic Times BookLovers Convention has M/M authors attending!! Are they doing workshops??
I attended the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention twice-its such a great experience to meet my favorite authors during the Book Fair and attending their workshop, dressing up for the themed parties, but the most part I like is the FREE promotiom materials and the books!!!
Can’t wait to find out where in the West Coast it’s going to be next year!! I missed it when the convention was in Los Angeles.
It’ll be nice for it to be on the left coast next year. I’ll hope to swing by. *grins* Heh… and lugging books back!
Oooh, nice! Mary Calmes is right though, she does mention some top writer names in this genre. I haven’t read Hawk but the others are certainly authors who always delivers quality. And that includes YOU!
Thank you love.
Honestly, Jordan L. Hawk is LIGHTYEARS better than me. Seriously, I wanna suck her brain out. *grins* God I love her books.
I came to this genre because of Mary Calmes. I stay because of writers like you, especially you.
aaawwwww thank you. *hugs*
