Going to M/M Conferences

March 8, 2015

Like many authors, I’m pretty introverted and don’t usually like being in groups of people, but I’ve met so many wonderful folk among M/M readers and writers, and I do plan to attend some Conferences in 2015:

July 11-12, 2015 I will be in Munich, Germany, at the Euro Pride Con. This will be the inaugural year for this M/M writers and readers event in continental Europe. I remember watching with envy in 2011, as reports posted from the first GRL in New Orleans. I really look forward to being part of the excitement for this first-time Munich con, which will coincide with Pride weekend.

I’ll be speaking on a panel about writing M/M series. (Trying to say more than “Oops, the guys have additional story to tell and it happens…”) I plan to talk about why I stopped with Life Lessons at book 4, the difference between writing one couple and several, and continuity when a sequel hits you years after the first book. (Yes, Ryan Ward, I’m looking at you and Rebuilding Year Book 2.) I look forward to Munich – meeting the other authors, the readers, seeing the city, and hope to see some of you there. Check out the Con Facebook link above for more info. And see below for a link to my post on being an introvert in a crowd.

GayRomLit, the 5th annual M/M writer and reader retreat here in the US, happens in San Diego Oct 15-18, 2015. I’m on the waitlist as an author, but I hope to go as a reader if I don’t get in as a featured author. Reader registration begins March 14 at noon EST. Last year reader registrations filled up in a few days, although wait-list spots continued to open up for months.

ETA – I found out I will be a featured author at GRL after all – hope to see you there.

Today, come by the Rainbow Gold Reviews blog site to read my thoughts on being an introvert and venturing out of my writing cave to meet -gasp- real live people. That’s less of a joke than it sounds. Readers and writers are often shy and quiet and many of you are probably like me, happier on the other side of a screen. But I’m over there to tell you I’ve had fun stepping out of the dark corners to talk to members of our great community at conferences. Plus you get swag ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I hope you can come to San Diego – and I’m curious to those talks you are doing in Germany – because I love the Life Lessons series and I’m happy about the 2nd Rebuilding Year ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope so too – fingers crossed for registration next weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Munich! How cool! I haven’t been there since I was a little girl. Have you been to Germany before, or will this be your first visit?

      First time for Germany. I have relatives from my parents’ generation in England and Switzerland, so I have been to both of those, but not in the last 20 years either. I’m excited. Just have to get my taxes done (tomorrow) to see how long I can afford to stay, and whether I might stop in London…

        Good luck with your taxes. I hope you get good news. I’m working on mine tomorrow too, but since both my kids are coming to visit I don’t expect to get much done. ๐Ÿ™‚
