Thirteen Snapshots of the Wisconsin Romance Writers' 2015 Write Touch Conference and Barbara Vey's Reader Appreciation Luncheon

Just so you know, this Write Touch Conference was my favorite so far. The writers, agents and editors were super approachable. On Friday, I used the suggested conversation starters readers gave me and I made some new friends.

On Saturday at the luncheon, which Barbara Vey had for readers I collected a huge bag of books and then I won another basket of books from Ruthie Knox. I’m looking forward to lots of happy hours with the new stories.

Then, on Sunday, I learned useful things from Mary Buckham, our keynote speaker.

To thank you for your suggestions and to share some of the weekend’s fun with you, here are thirteen pictures.
