RWA 2010!

disney Next week is the national conference for Romance Writers of America (RWA). Blythe Barnhill, Sandy Coleman and I will all be attending, and hopefully learning a lot. Last year was my first time at RWA, and while the conference is almost overwhelmingly huge, I had a blast getting to meet some wonderful authors (both published and aspiring), reviewers, and other book industry types. I’m also looking forward to seeing what the publishers have in store for us going forward.

We’ll be there with our laptops, and will be blogging from the conference. In addition, if you want to follow what’s going on throughout the day, I’d suggest keeping an eye on Twitter. We’ll be doing most of our tweeting from the @allaboutromance account. In addition, you can find us all individually at: @blytheaar, @LynnAAR,and @SandyAAR.
I’m getting into Orlando late Tuesday afternoon, and Blythe and Sandy will both be arriving Wednesday.

Now here’s the important part for you: Is there something from an author or publisher(or about Romanceworld in general) that you would like to know? If so, put it in the comments below, and we’ll try our best to help you out and get you the news you want to be reading.

Hope everyone is having a lovely summer!

    Any information you can gather on a publisher’s decision to produce an audiobook of a particular book. I imagine the process is more than just a few words but, if that is the case, I’d love to have a source for such a discussion.

  3. kathy says:

    Any information on older books being put in audiobook format? “Windflower” “To Love a Dark Lord” “To Have and to Hold” etc.etc.?

    The perennial call to see if the MIA/not publishing any more will publish again: Judith Ivory, Marsha Canham, Sharon & Tom Curtis (although I don’t think that’s happening). Usual suspects. Have fun!

    Does J.R. Ward have any plans to write as Jessica Bird anymore? Moreover, will she ever finish her Silhoutte Special Edition O’Banyon series with Harlequin?

    Secondly, does Random House have any updated release information on Judith McNaught’s next book, Someone Like You?

    Finally, why has Harlequin let their most popular authors, such as Nora Roberts & Heather Graham, leave? NR made a statement that it was over money, not that she no longer wanted to write for the line. I’ve stopped buying these books for the most part because they no longer have any must read authors.

  6. LinnieGayl says:

    I’m curious about many of the questions others have listed. Additionally,

    Does Colby Hodge have any plans to write a sequel to Twist?

    Are there any plans to put the books of Loretta Chase (LOS, Lord Perfect, in particular) in audio format? What about Connie Brockway’s As You Desire in audio?

  7. MarissaB says:

    How do publishers/authors choose the narrators of the audiobooks? What process do they use to select them? How much say does an author have in the choice? Why do some series have different narrators and others have the same narrator?

    Thanks so much for asking the questions for us. Enjoy!

  8. Pat says:

    Are the prices for e-books (Kindle in particular) going to go up? Now some books are tagged “Price set by publisher.” Will this be a trend or will prices drop back?

    Also, have publishers stopped transferring their backlists to ebook format? At one point it seemed that there were more back than front list books in e-format, but now that seems to have slowed to a trickle. What’s the thinking?

    What’s the impact of e-book publishing now that Amazon announced that Kindle copies sold more than hardbacks for three months? Will publishers cut back on hardback runs?

  9. Kayne says:

    Any news on when Primrose by Lisa Valdez or The Assassin by Elizabeth Elliott will be coming out?
