Our blog has been nominated for a SWEET BLOG AWARD!

Author Vijaya Schartz, one of our speakers again this year, nominated our blog for this Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Thank you, Vijaya. She writes Blasters, Guns, Swords, and Romance with a Kick. Visit her website at:  http://www.vijayaschartz.com/, and her blog, where she nominated us, at: http://romancingscifi.blogspot.com/

As part of this nomination process, we have to nominate in turn ten worthy blogs, and tell our readers seven things they might not know about us.

Here are the nominated blogs:

Denise Domning's blog : http://www.denisedomning.com/
Donna Hatch's blog: http://donnahatch.blogspot.com/

And here are the seven things you should know about us:

1 - The early bird deadline to register is over, but the price of this conference is still very competitive, and you would be well advised to register ASAP to make sure you don't miss this incredibly affordable and very worthy conference. http://www.desertroserwa.org/conferences/Phoenix-Romance-Writers-Conferences.php

2 - The organizers of this conference are right now looking for promo items from authors for the raffle and the goodie bags. Even if you are not attending, if you have trinquets related to your spring releases, promotional pens, emery boards, refrigerator magnets, or any other gizmo your are burning to distribute, send them right away to:
Desert Dreams Conference
36148 W. Vera Cruz Dr.
Maricopa, AZ 85138

3 - The schedule of events is now posted  HERE Check it out.

4 - You only have a few days to enter the contest reserved to attendees. These ten pages will be read and judged by an agent or editor in your genre, so don't miss this opportunity to get your work in front of the professionals. Must be registered to enter.

5 - The list of agents and editors is changing slightly. More opportunities for you. Check it out HERE

6 - The weather is wonderful in April in Scottsdale. Bring your bathing suits. The pools are divine.

7 - The best part is to be able to meet agents and editors in a friendly atmosphere, at the bar, by the pool, at your table during meals... They are relaxed, happy to listen to your pitch, and you should really be there. Many an author has found an editor or an agent, and got published because of this conference.

Good luck.

  1. Hello! Congrats Vijaya Schartz upon winning that award for your own blog. Its really pleasing for you. Perhaps the terms of accepting the award are simple. Should we share seven Random facts about ourself and pass the award on to seven other fellow bloggers?
