This week I've returned from my first ever RAW weekend. For those not familiar with the term, it is the title given to Lora Leighs sponsored Reader Appreciation weekend. This year was her 5th such weekend and I have to tell you I was won over! The schedule was perfect for a three day weekend, lending itself to quality time spect in conversations with readers and other authors. Something that is rare for a bigger conference to achieve based on sheer numbers. I discovered some great new friends in both readers and authors and established an even greater respect and admiration for both.

From the warmth of the Rocky Gap resort to the unexpected gift of a first, magical snowfall-RAW 2011 was a delightful experience that I look forward again in 2012!
