Okay, I am WAY late getting this up and I sincerely apologize. My alter-ego has been working against a tight deadline and things are all kinds of crazy right now. HOWEVER – I must post this before it’s too late.
For serious lovers of the M/M genre, and those who write it, a new con is coming to town: GayRomLit. GayRomLit Retreat is a gathering for readers and writers of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender romance. This is an opportunity to hang out with people who read the same books you do. Get to know your favorite authors in a comfortable setting, ask all those burning questions about the books you love, and meet online friends at a one of a kind retreat. New Orleans is the location for the 2011 GayRomLit Retreat.
Okay, now the retreat is October 13 – 16th, but registration closes midnight eastern time on June 15, 2011. So for the love of Pete (or Steve, or Horatio, or whoever), don’t pussyfoot around. If you’re on the fence, sign up already. You’ll be glad you did.
And I owe a special thank-you for my ability to attend this year. The M/M Romance Group on Goodreads held a contest this year–and let me stress that this was a member of the group being just plain being selfless and generous to donate a plane ticket–and I was lucky enough to win. So thank you, thank you, thank you to MsMiz (Tina) and the M/M reading group for this tremendous opportunity, because M/M romance has done a lot for me, and I can’t wait to meet so many of the authors I’ve admired to thank them for their amazing work.
Course, sometimes I get nervous when I meet people I admire, so there’s a good chance I’ll just stand there and drool on their shoes…
