Letter from Barbara Keaton
Host Author, RSJ 2013
I love the month of July for many reasons – its officially summer, the days tend to be warm but not overly hot (well, so far not so good), the festivals in Chicago are in full swing, with the Taste of Chicago and the many acts that accompany it and my birthday is in July. Yet, July also reminds me that we have less than a year ahead of us before Romance Slam Jam 2013 comes to Milwaukee, WI! Now, don’t forget to put May 2 – 5, 2013 on your calendar and be prepared for a “slamin’” good time.
Some of you may have never been to the Midwest, much less Milwaukee – but I like the city on the lake – its beauty; and its proximity to my home of Chicago is only about two hours by car. Once in Milwaukee, you can shop at the nearby Gurnee Mills – a HUGE discount shopping mall. And for those who love a game of chance Potawatomi Casino is but a shuttle ride from the hotel, the Hilton Milwaukee Downtown. And for a little additional culture, don’t forget the Milwaukee Museum.
Then of course, there are always the workshops and networking that occurs during Slam Jam! For those of you who have attended past conferences know that seeing your authors strolling through the hallways or hanging out presents some of the greatest opportunities to chat and maybe even get inside information on their next work!
Well, I pray to see you in May! Until we meet, keep reading!
