Romancing the Big Easy: Romance Slam Jam 2014

Two things I learned about New Orleans this past week. I love that city. And I will never drive there again. Even with the help of Erica Singleton and Mr. Harris the Travel Monkey, Cheris is not as young as she used to be.

But it was worth it. Oh, it was work it. The last Slam Jam I attended was in 2004. I know, I should be ashamed of myself. This year's event was just spectacular. Farrah Rochon, Sheila Goss and Kim Knight but together a flawless event. And the second line after the Emma Awards! Just amazing.
But don't just take my word for it, listen to what a reader, LaSonde Jones, has to say.


On Day 1, you calmly walked over, sat in the chair next to me, and struck up a conversation like we've known each other for years. I glanced at your name tag and was immediately star struck. Why? Because authors are my rock stars. Most literate people can write, but not everyone can craft and publish well-written stories after stories. Anyway, I'm sorry I didn't take a picture with you, but I'm sure I'll get another chance. It was nice meeting you Cheris!

I loved the Big Easy and meeting Cheris for the first time (even thought I butcher her name..LOL) It was Fan-tastic. Cannot wait until RSJ in Dallas. Great interview with LaSonde :-)
