A Book Convention for Interracial Romance Lovers.

by on October 14, 2014

When I started writing and discovered what I wrote was a “niche” I went looking for conventions. I was so excited. The idea of talking with different people, meeting new folks…just basking in the glow of some of the authors I read in the past. It was exhilarating and a let down. Let me tell you why. There were no conferences out there in the publishing world exclusively IR. Sure there were some wonder cons that had minor IR aspects but nothing on the grand scale I was in search of.

Inspiration struck again…Have your own. That little vice that usually talked about characters whispered in my mind. Create something fantastic. My muse was on a mission and it had nothing to do with writing a book. The barrage of do it…do it…do it…rang through my head.

And I did it. With the encouragement of several great authors and the help of several close family, friends and readers The Interracial Romance Authors Expo was born and although it is only a day and a half, let me say this. It will be one jam packed event. Starting Friday May 15th at 6pm with a Sex Toy Scavenger Hunt. After that you won’t have time to sit down.

Until a few more authors are confirmed the actual event program is tentative but here is the outline. AND lets not forget the goodie bags that will be filled with fun stuff. I don’t now about you but to quote a Pointer Sister (yes I am showing my age) I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it. Did I mention that all this will take place on Disney property. Imagine a weekend where the kids can play cause there is always something to do but so can you with the grown and sexy at the conference. Hope I see you there.
