RWA National Conference 2012

It’s RWA 2012 Week: Schedule, Schedule, Schedule

You know how it goes. You get all excited about attending a conference because of the friends you haven’t seen in a year, or brilliant keynote speakers, or the chance to be a fan girl when you run into one of your favorite authors in the cafe shop, in the elevator, or who knows where.
