Heart of Dixie Romance Reader's Luncheon Recap

I most certainly have been enjoying attending all the different conference in the past year. It all started with RWA13 in Atlanta followed by Southern Magic Luncheon, Romantic Times 2014 in NOLA and just recently the Heart of Dixie Romance Reader's Luncheon in May. 

I heard about this luncheon when I went to the Southern Magic Luncheon in November of 2013. I was quite excited because Eloisa James was attending. At that point I had never read a book by Ms. James but I knew the name! Before the luncheon I was able to read 5 of her books. I thought her writing was smart, witty, and delightful. You can instantly tell that Ms. James is intelligent and she works that into her novels. Her writing is top notch and she includes a plethora of historical facts. Besides being a romance writer, Ms. James is also a creative writing and Shakespearean  professor (impressed yet?)

I thought I would showcase some of the pictures I got. If you have the opportunity check out your local RWA chapter and see if they have an fabulous luncheons. It is a great way to meet your favorite authors and find new reads and friends.
