RWA 2013 Conference

program_headerIt’s been a week since the 33rd annual conference of  Romance Writers of America concluded in Atlanta, Georgia and the boost I received by attending will last me until the the next one in San Antonio a year from now.  I’ve been an RWA member for about thirty years and have attended countless RWA annual conferences around the country so I should be jaded by now.  But I’m not.

This conference kicked off with approximately 400 authors including Heather Graham, Cathy Maxwell, Carla Neggers and Mary Burton autographing books in an event open to the public.  All proceeds went to literacy and approximately $55,000 was raised.

I’m back home after a packed last week of workshops, publisher parties, author meetings and seeing friends at Romance Writers of America’s 31st annual conference held this year at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

Cathy Maxwell AuthorThe April re-issue of one of Cathy Maxwell’s early Regency historical romances, Falling In Love Again—all dressed up with a beautiful new cover—seemed the perfect time to touch base with Cathy by asking her a few questions about writing Falling In Love Again and catch up with her about future books.

Cathy: Arranged marriages were very common among the upper classes and so were marriages where the couple barely knew each other. I took the idea of Falling in Love Again from a story in The Regency Companion: “The oddest love story no doubt concerned a noble lord who married for convenience when he was a boy and never lived with his bride. Several years later on meeting an exquisite beauty at the theater, his somewhat improper advances to her turned out not to be so improper. She was his wife!”

How fun is that story! Fun I tried to transfer to Falling in Love Again.

Falling in Love Again with Cathy Maxwell

Cathy-Maxwell-Falling-In-Love-AgainIf you don’t already love New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s charming Regency set historical books, you will after reading her new release, Falling In Love Again.

Avon Books is re-issuing one of Cathy’s  earliest historical romance books, Falling In Love Again on Tuesday, March 29th.  The book was originally published in 1997 with a basket of flowers on a yellow cover.  Although the re-issue has a beautiful new cover, the story is just as wonderful to read today and it was when first released.  It followed on the heels of Cathy’s successful You and No Other and won many new readers for Cathy.

Here’s a little bit about Falling in Love Again:
