Back from Cruising

Hi everyone,

I had a wonderful time on my cruise with the Florida RWA group. Not only did I get to meet agents and editors, but I enjoyed seeing and getting to know some awesome writers.

On the first day I arrived, I met co-owner of The Wild Rose Press, Rhonda Penders. This woman is amazing. Not only does she run TWRP but she holds down a full time job, has a family of three boys, and helps with her aging parents. What she can accomplish in a day would take me a week. And the best part, she is an upbeat person who supports authors. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her better.

The relaxed format of the conference made it easy to get to know people. I spent time with editors, agents, and writers, and learned different aspects of the business in a comfortable relaxed setting. I truly enjoyed this conference.

If you get a chance in the future to do this conference, you should take advantage of the opportunity. The Florida Writers Group did an awesome job.
