|Connie Brockway giving her speech at the Saturday NJRW Luncheon|
This was my first time at the NJRW PUT YOUR HEART IN A BOOK Conference and I truly enjoyed myself. This is definitely a conference for writers. As most of you know, I am very social and just being able to meet and socialize with these brilliant writers was such an honor. There was a Saturday Book Signing that was open to the public which was a highlight of the event. This event was very well organized and easy to navigate. I must give kudos to Cathy Genna, the bookseller from Barnes & Noble. This lady is a lover of romance and she so knows what she is doing and what the typical romance reader wants. Chairperson, Nicole Doran and her co-chair Penni DePaul did a great job. Author and good friend, CH Admirand made this such a great time for me. She always makes sure everyone is taken care of and I so appreciate her!

After the fabulous signing, the Book Obsessed Chicks had a lovely dinner with authors, Cathy Maxwell, Elizabeth Hoyt, Tina Gabrielle and Shirley Hailstock. This was such a relaxing evening and we had a great server that was so happy to receive a signed book by Cathy Maxwell.
