Bestselling Author, Renowned Speaker, and member of the RWA National Board of Directors

Reader’s Block:

Damon’s talk focuses on the modern romance industry, the radical shifts in readership and fandom and how they’re altering what success looks like for professional authors. Genre fictioneers often grouse about writer’s block but more and more what we encounter is something more akin to reader’s block: an unwillingness to step beyond our ruts or move past the shadow of our steeples.

Romance is the literature of hope, simultaneously the most traditional and most provocative of genres. Our industry is evolving, but not necessarily in the obvious ways. Tribalism and division cost us marketshare and media access. In a world expanding and connecting at an exponential rate, where do books land? Who are the readers of tomorrow? What is the future of love stories and genre fiction careers? Join us for a free-range discussion of the art of heart and the business of happy endings.

  • Finding Your Brand

    With so many books being published every year, how do you learn to separate yourself from the crowd? How do you develop a loyal, buying audience who is desperate to gobble up every single thing you write?

    The answer is simple: branding.

  • Romancing the Holidays—Writing Holiday Romances that Sell

    So what does it take to write a Holiday Romance? When do you publish it? When do publishers even send out calls for them?

  • Read an Excerpt of THE LAST MILE by Kat Martin

    Superman, ha! The man was dictatorial and overbearing. How was she going to put up with him for what could end up being weeks?

  • Treasure Hunting by Kat Martin

    I found this quote in a book I was reading, words about treasure I found remarkably compelling. Years ago, I wrote a novel called DEEP BLUE about hunting for treasure on a sunken Spanish galleon.
    I’d been wanting to write another treasure story ever since, and this seemed like the perfect chance
