The thirteenth annual Romance Slam Jam was held this past week. April 30 – May 4th.

As always it was wonderful to see all the writers and meet all the readers.
I want to thank the committee, - Deatri King Bey, Dyanne Davis, Barbara Keaton, Ann Clay, Lisa G. Riley and the Chicago RAW Sister Book Club.

These ladies know how to throw a party. I have been in need from some serious fun and they showed me the time of my life.

I have some pictures and hopefully a video to share, so for now I will post a link to a site that has theirs online now and who I wanted to introduce to you as another wonderful place to promote books – URBAN REVIEWS

I had the pleasure of meeting the hosts Radiah and her hubby Charles Hubbert. They have some fantastic pictures. You’ll see a few of me in them. As you will see from the pictures we all had a great time.

Click on the link and scroll down, there is a post for each day and they have some videos of the karoke session, which was too funny.

If you went to slam jam, please share your experiences.

Hi, all,

I’m still trying to recuperate from that wonderful event, because as LaShaunda said, those folks really know how to throw a party. This was my first Slam Jam, and I was in awe of the experience. I finally got the chance to meet some of the writer friends I’ve corresponded with online for years, and it was like a reunion, indeed. Everybody was so wonderful and down to earth. I always enjoy meeting people, and these readers and writers were awesome! I definitely have to put Slam Jam on my must do list for each year.

I think the best thing about the event for me was the fact that I had the opportunity to wear all three of my writing related hats, and it was just fine. I donned my editor hat to take pitches for Whispers Publishing, I put on my author fedora to meet readers in the reader session and the signing, and then I switched up with my reader baseball cap to meet other authors and have them sign my personal books. This chameleon like morphing was not only accepted, but it was expected. I loved it! I can’t think of anywhere else I could have done that and had such a great time.

See you in California next year!
