Heart of Dixie Readers Luncheon

I had a wonderful trip to Huntsville, AL, this past weekend for the Heart of Dixie annual Readers Luncheon. Steeple Hill Love Inspired Suspense author, Debby Giusti, and I travelled together and had the best time! She posted a great summary at The Craftie Ladies of Suspense blog on Wednesday, May 21. Please hop over and read it to see what a great time we had! I'll post some photos here later.

Also, I'm posting on the F.A.I.T.H. blog on Thursday. I hope you'll drop by!

Heart of Dixie is an Romance Writers of America chapter located in Alabama. The chapter hosts a lucheon each year where authors come and host a table. Then readers can go to the lunch and sit with their favorite authors. Authors also put together gift baskets and they have a drawing to give those away. Then afterwards, there's a book signing.

It was a great success again this year. (This was my first time to attend.) They maxed out at 144 attendees-- all the room would hold. Next year they've reserved 2 ballrooms. I plan to go again! It was fun meeting readers. :)
