Where I’ve Been and Where I’ll Be (at RomCon)

Just got back last night from a family vacation–Mr. James got a short “furlough” from the Big Case he’s working on and we decided to treat the Little Guy to some fun.  Any guesses where we went?  Here’s a hint:

Ah, Disney World with a three year-old. . . there’s no experience quite like it.  Yes, the Little Guy had his moments–what three year-old doesn’t?–but we had a fantastic time.  Although I would like to have a word with the Disney “imagineers” about one thing–do we really need a gift shop stocked with TOYS after every ride??  Help a parent out here, guys.  : )

Later this week, I’m off to Denver for RomCon.  For those of you attending the conference, I thought I’d post the schedule of places you can find me:

Saturday, July 10th: 12 PM Book Fair–Open to the Public

Saturday, July 10th: 2:30 PM Mix and Mingle with Contemporary Romance Authors, including Autumn Piper, Catherine Anderson, Cathy Maxwell, Deb Werksman, Elizabeth Hoyt, Jeanne C. Stein, Jodi Thomas, Julie James, Lori Wilde, Meg Benjamin, Susan Crandall, Susan Donovan & Leanne Banks

Saturday, July 10th: 3:30 PM The Perfect Heroine: What makes a heroine a woman you can identify with? Do you prefer them to be perfect, slender, gorgeous, and supremely self-confident? Or do you prefer them to have some flaws and feel self-conscious in some situations. Sexually active or more discerning? Financially successful or struggling in an ordinary job to make ends meet? Sexy underwear or plain? What types of heroines appeal to you? Come share your thoughts with Catherine Anderson, Cathy Maxwell, J L Wilson, Julie James, Sally MacKenzie, Susan Donovan.

Sunday, July 11th: 9 AM Speed Date a New Author–Session 3 Have a flash visit with your favorite authors or new-to-you authors and decide for yourself if you’d like to check out their books.  Some of the authors participating are Amanda McCabe, Cindi Myers, Deeanne Gist, Jeaniene Frost, Julie James, Karen Jones, Lavinia Kent, Lori Foster, Meagan Hatfield, Melissa Mayhue, Sally MacKenzie, Tara Janzen, and Terri Garey.

Of course, I’ll be around throughout the conference, attending panels/workshops, the awards ceremony (psst–Practice Makes Perfect was nominated for Best Contemporary) and other events, but those are the places you can find me for sure.

Hope to see some of you there!

    Hi Julie
    Happy 4th. Glad you had a break with Mr. & Jr. James. Yeah about those toy shops.

    Rom Con sounds like it’s going to be great. That Perfect Heroine talk sounds intriguing but you already got that covered. Enjoy & can’t wait to read your post(s) about it.

    Heh…we overlapped down at Disney. Just returned home this morning and I am beat. Wish I was going to RomCon – hoped to make it but the vacation allotment’s already taken a substantial hit. Maybe next time.

    Travel safely and have fun!

    :::sigh::: We love Disney World. Best place on Earth. We own DVC and still can’t get enough. We did change it up and go to Disneyland this year for the first time, but we’re itching to go back to the World. We do, however, only go during off seasons. Can’t imagine being there now!

    I’m a new fan who loves your books – especially the leading legal ladies! I laughed at this blog entry almost as much as the Austen-spouting Chicago cabdriver you created – my five year old’s favorite part of Disneyland is that he could get a “prize” at the end of every ride. Clever Disney marketing, I suppose, but it led to several less than happiest place on earth moments when he failed to win his prize at every gift shop.

  5. Julie says:

    Thanks, Mary! I’ll definitely post about the conference when I get back.

    Kristi: Yay!! Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Marsha: too funny that we overlapped at WDW. Yes, it’s definitely a vacation that can wipe a person out. Half the time, I come back more tired than when I left. : )

    Gwen: we thought about doing DVC… still considering it. I’ve been to Disneyland once and, while I’m admittedly biased, think it’s nothing compared to WDW. : )

    Annalynn: Thanks for dropping by! Glad you enjoyed the books! And I was in the same boat with my three year-old in Disney–I swear he wanted to spend more time in the gift shops than on the rides.
