Where in the World is Jenna Jaxon? (Part 4)

My big adventures of the summer have begun!

Monday morning I boarded a train (at 5:30 in the morning!) and arrived in New York City for the Romance Writers of America National Conference that afternoon.

The conference is at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square–right next to the theatre where Hamilton is playing! (What I wouldn’t give to get a ticket for that!)

Tuesday I attended–for the first time–the Beau Monde Chapter Mini-Conference for writers of Regency romances. The workshops were very informative, on everything from West Africa during the Regency to London mansions to Research techniques to Regency dancing.

Last evening the chapter threw a soiree, complete with food, silent auction, and actual English Country Dancing, which I got to participate in! Fun time, but totally exhausting. I haven’t been to the Williamsburg English Dancing group in over a year, so I was totally out of shape, but still danced three sets. (And as I was dancing, I go no photos!).

Today I have meetings with my agent and my editor at Kensington, then the conference starts in full swing on Thursday. I’ll post more on Friday, after the Kensington signing (where I’m raffling off a toy stuffed King Charles Spaniel named Lulu–a character in my upcoming Much Ado About A Widow book) and the Kensington party that night.

All for now, but updates will follow frequently!

    Enjoy the conference, Jenna. Nationals are a blast, if overwhelming and exhausting.
