I spent the end of July at the Romance Writers of America conference in New York City, which took place right in the heart of the theater district at the Marriott Marquis hotel.
For someone afraid of heights, a hotel room on the 44th floor was a challenge for me...
|A long way down!|
But it did afford some spectacular views out my window...
|Cruise ship on the Hudson river|
|Sunset over New Jersey|
I also had trouble with the hotel's glass-enclosed elevators, which felt like we were in freefall going down to the lobby. GULP!
It was all worth it, though, to be able to be one of 480 authors signing their books at RWA's Literacy signing, which raised $48,000 for various literacy organizations. The event was overwhelming!
