Gonna have a party!

Mark July 24-29 on your calendars because we are going to have a party!
I'm not going to RWA National this year like I usually do, so I thought I'd do something to make staying behind fun for me and hopefully everyone else.  I'll be posting new blogs daily during the week.  We'll talk books, we'll share calorie free food we don't have to stand in line for, we'll gossip and meet new people, make new friends.  We'll have our own conference/party!
Just like at RWA National...both readers and writers (pubbed an unpubbed) are welcome.  I'll be inviting other authors not going to RWA to stop by and visit and hope you'll invite your friends.  We are going to have so much fun!  I'll be giving away goody bags with books by me and other authors to drawing winners from blog participants daily!  If there are a lot of poeple, I'll give away more goody bags.
Admit it, it sounds like a blast, doesn't it?

Wow! Sounds like fun! Even though RWA is being held 2.5 hours from my home, I'm not going either.
This sounds like more fun anyway.

Oh, still no sign of my cat.

Stacy~ said...

Oh how fun! I almost wish I wasn't going to RWA LOL. You will all be missed, that's for sure.

Sorry Brandy that there's no news. I've been thinking a lot about you lately. Please know my prayers are with you.

Sounds like a lot of fun!!! You always come up with great ideas.

{{{Brandy}}}, sorry about your cat!

Kate Pearce said...

Aw...Lucy, I was looking forward to meeting you at nationals!
Maybe next year?

Reese said...

Hey lil' Miss. Lucy. I've been meaning to come here, because I wanted to tell you something I thought you'd get a kick out of:

I have a guy pal who I've managed to convince to read a romance novel. I really laboured over which one to get for him, but I eventually chose "Wedding Vow of Revenge."

I haven't given it to him, yet, but I'm pretty damn excited to get his reaction. I suspect he'll enjoy it ;-)

Take care!

Lucy Monroe said...

{{{HUGS}}} Brandy! And I'm glad you'll be around for the party. I'm really looking forward to it. I'm already getting RSVPs from other authors who are going to come too.

LOL Stacy...you are going to have such a good time, but we'll miss you here for the party. :)

Thanks, Lidia! I think it's going to be GREAT! I've invited some HP authors as well as many others. We'll see who comes. :)

Kate...that would have been so cool to meet, but you're right...maybe next year.

Reese...I *love* your new pic! You've got to let me know what your guy friend thinks of WVOR. Thanks for coming by! I've definitely missed you lately. :)

Nicola Marsh said...

I can't believe it has taken me this long to get here!
Promise to pop in regularly, especially for the party :)

Can you believe it is almost a year since the RWAustralia conference? Will miss you this year...

Nic!!! Great to see you here! Email me (lucymonroe@comcast.net) and I'll add you to the Participating Authors list. I would have invited you personally but I don't have your email address in my file. I'm SO glad you came by!!!

Hi Lucy

Just dropping by on my way out the door to say that I'm teaching in Wales next week but I'm definitely going to drop by the party!

I'll be back before RWA ends - so I'll join you here as soon as I can - hopefully Friday 28th

At least i won;t have jet-lag travelling back from Wales

see you soon



Lucy Monroe said...

Have a wonderful time, Kate! We'll see you when you get back and thanks. :)

Lucy Monroe said...

P.S. Kate's offered some great prizes (along with lots of other authors) - this party is going to rock!

I have been watching this Blog Party progress, and I am just amazed at the synergy that this is creating worldwide. Picture a Block Party that's being held across neighborhoods in almost every continent, in every timezone, with gobs of people going 24/7...puts one in awe. I say, party on, folx!
