Day 3 of Romance Novel Convention started out much like Day 1, in an exhausted blur. Maybe I was on too much of a high after the previous night's costume ball, but I woke in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. As a consequence, I was running on about five hours of sleep, but somehow I got my butt out of bed and made it down to the first class period of the day at 9 a.m.
I attended classes all morning, starting with Fiona Jayde's “Get Yourself Covered: A Pre-Launch Strategy.” Since I'm about to launch a brand new book in my Loving Hearts series this month, I thought this would be a good class to take, and I definitely learned some important things from it. Next, I went to the panel discussion, “Developing a Series and Creating Your World Inside It,” where I got some good tips that will hopefully help me with a couple of paranormal series ideas I have. To round out the morning, I attended Randi Alexander and Jackson Young's class, “Branding Brainstorming.” There I got some new ideas for building my author brand.

For the last two weeks, I've been busily making preparations, and Tuesday morning the hubs and I will once again be heading for Las Vegas to attend the Romance Novel Convention. It's at a brand new venue this year, Harrah's Las Vegas on the strip. It'll be five days of non-stop fun and education that I'm looking forward to.
