Anyone going to this? <a href="http://www.rtconvention.com/" target="_new">www.rtconvention.com/</a> It's in St. Louis at the end of April 2005. I went to the one in Toronto in 1999 and am thinking about attending again next year.

No plans to go, Mich, but we'll expect a full report when you return!;)

How many of you have attended Romance conventions in the past? Was it fun, interesting, useful, etc.? Are they targeted for readers, writers, or both?

You can count on it, Holly. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif" />

The RT Convention I went to in '99 was just the book fair part. About a hundred authors in one room looking at people passing their tables expectantly. I got about five signed books and met some of the authors which was cool. Then I walked past a male romance cover model, shirtless and oily. It was kind of ick actually. They look better on the covers. LOL
