The scent of good food lingering in the early autumn air...a steel band playing in the distance...and TONS and TONS of books!!!

I'm so excited that it's that time of year again for the Baltimore Book Festival. This event has been growing each of the past three years I've participated, becoming one of those "can't miss" activities in Baltimore.

I'll be spending most of my time in the awesome Maryland Romance Writers' tent where we'll be featuring local romance authors and some pretty cool panel discussions/workshops. In addition to MRW's tent, there's a Ladies' Night Out (Friday night), cooking demonstrations, book signings, special appearances by well-knowns like Jennifer Armentrout, Meg Cabot, Brian Boitano, Kate Gosselin, and more!

Here's where to find me at the festival:
Friday, 9/27: 2 p.m. MRW Stage, HOT PARANORMAL FICTION
Authors will talk about why they write paranormal romance, paranormal creatures and world building, and why paranormal romance and characters are popular. Joya Fields, Laura Kaye, Misty Water, Rebecca York, Terri Brisbin and Lisa Airey.

Friday, 9/27: 4 p.m. MRW Stage, PUTTING THE ROMANCE IN SUSPENSE
Authors will talk about incorporating suspense and mystery into romantic fiction. Geri Krotow, Joya Fields, Rebecca York, Regina Jeffers, Robin Covington, and Nancy Weeks.

Saturday, 9/28, 4 p.m. MRW Stage, PLOTTING VS PANTSING 
Authors discuss techniques for coming up with story ideas. Christi Barth, Diana Cosby, Joya Fields, Lea Nolan, Terri Brisbin, and Andrew Grey.

Hope to see you there!!
