Farrah receiving the torch
Okay, my love affair with Milwaukee has come to an end and everyone is excited about the next stop for the Romance Slam Jam Conference. NEW ORLEANS!!! That’s right; the whole gang is getting ready to meet up in Louisiana in 2014 and Farrah Rochon and will be the host author. The torch has officially been passed and now is the time to plan your return to RSJ, the best author family reunion.
Here’s Farrah’s message to the RSJers,
For the past 18 years, Romance Slam Jam has been the ultimate gathering for fans of African American romance, and each year the conference gets bigger and better. On behalf of the 2014 RSJ Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us in my hometown of New Orleans for the 2014 Romance Slam Jam Conference, Romancing the Big Easy, May 7th-11th, 2014.
If there’s one thing New Orleans is known for, it’s throwing a party, and the 2014 RSJ Committee already has plans to make next year’s conference the best yet! Explore the sights, sounds, and wonderful food of the romantic Crescent City, and enjoy hanging out with your favorite authors and fellow readers. We can’t wait to see you there.
Much love, Farrah Rochon
Well, I was able to have a nice one-on-one lunch with Farrah and she really wants next year’s conference to the best Romance Slam Jam Conference since its inception. I explained how author Evelyn Palfrey is encouraging me to teach a Facebook workshop next year since I taught her how to setup her author page so quickly. Farrah quickly agreed and sweetly reminded me she’ll be looking for my proposal.
I’ve also offered my assistance with other items that may assist her and the RSJ 2014 committee. I wanted her to know that I and CIMRWA (the Cultural, Interracial, Multicultural Special Interest Group of RWA) strongly support Romance Slam Jam and their attendees.
So I’m about to get on the plane now and head back to New Jersey. Goodbye Milwaukee, I’ll never forget the memories.
