Get Your Jammies On!

Cue the siren! Today—Friday, Sept. 20—is the last day to make hotel reservations for the OCC/RWA Birthday Bash. The festivities start on Friday, Oct. 11 with Make-Your-Own Mask and a Write-In, but the major parties take place on Saturday, Oct. 12. (Pure coincidence, btw, that also happens to be my birthday!)

The morning speaker is the amazing best-selling author Victoria Dahl, and in the afternoon we’ll have Heather Bennett from Decadent Publishing.

On Saturday night, don’t forget to pack your pajamas – cute, sexy, comfortable – the style is totally up to you. We’ve got an amazing assortment of authors hosting “Pajama Parties” where they’ll share a little bit of their expertise.

Here’s the line-up (in alphabetical order … times need to be set):

Skylar Kade & Jennifer Bernard         "Put on Your Big Girl Panties"

Linda Carroll-Bradd                            "Writing to Publisher Calls for Submission"

Elena Dillon                                        “Self-Publishing” 

Tara Lain                                             “Putting the Mmm in Marketing”

Deb Mullins                                        “Creating Conflict from Character”

Louella Nelson                                    “Scene Design”

Nikki Prince                                        “Interracial and Multicultural Romance”

Beth Yarnall                                        “Point of View”

Attendees do not have to stay the night. The cut-off for lunch reservations is Monday, Sept. 30, but for planning … sooner = better.

To register and for more information, please visit the Orange County Chapter of RWA.

Tossing confetti!

Hope to see you there …
