What Did I Miss? by Linda O. Johnston

August 6, 2017 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense tagged as , , ,

Pets Romance & Lots of Suspence
I’ve attended many RWA National Conferences over the years–but not the most recent one.

There were several reasons I didn’t get to Orlando this year.  Did I miss it?  Sure.   Even so, I got to follow friends on social media sites and see who won awards and learn who I could have seen there had I attended.  Some of those were fellow OCC members, whom I’ve been missing since I haven’t been able to attend local chapter meetings lately, either.

So now, here I am, blogging about something I didn’t see.  And I know I couldn’t possibly learn about it all by checking out friends’ Facebook posts or even talking to or emailing friends who attended.  What would I like to do about it?

I’m asking here for anyone who attended who reads this to tell me: What did I miss?  What was your favorite thing about this year’s RWA National Conference?

And those of you who also missed it–have you ever gone to one of the RWA Nationals?  Why did you choose to go that year, or others, but not this one?  Do you attend your local chapter meetings?  Other romance writing conferences?  Writing conferences for other genres?

Okay, enough questions–maybe.  Next year’s RWA National will be in Denver.  Will I be there?  Too early to tell, but I hope so!

A Question About Questions

September 6, 2009 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense tagged as , , ,

I’ve been blogging here on A Slice of Orange for a while now, on the sixth of each month. I don’t get many comments, but, then, neither do most of our other bloggers–with a few exceptions. Maybe I’m just boring. Or maybe I haven’t hit on topics that resonate with our members.

So… what would you like to see me write about here? I’m asking for you to post a comment and let me know! I’d love to address what our members and other blog visitors want to hear about from me.

I’ve got lots of ideas about writing, and ideas about selling what you write, and, yes, ideas about getting ideas! I write in different genres, and I write two series (my Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter mystery series, plus my Alpha Force shapeshifter series for Silhouette Nocturne) and am about to embark on my third–a spin-off mystery series about Lauren Vancouver, pet rescuer. If you have questions about any of that, please let me know and I’ll be glad to address answers in future blog posts. Or–nearly–anything else relating to writing. Just ask, and I’ll try to oblige.

Meantime, I consider OCC an immeasurable asset to my writing. If you’re a member, you know what I’m talking about!

Linda O. Johnston

Linda O. Johnston is the author of 16 romance novels and several novellas, including a Nocturne Bites, with more Nocturnes upcoming. She also writes the Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter mystery series from Berkley Prime Crime and will soon start working on the spin-off Pet Rescue series.
