GRNW_ButtonAvatarHuge Turnout at Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up 2014

With 200 attendees, 8 publishers, and over 50 LGBTQ romance authors, the second Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up conference was a fantastic day, and we offer our sincere gratitude for all the writers, readers, volunteers, and fans who made this event at the Seattle Public Library so special. Programming-wise, it was a full day of writer discussions, panels, pitch sessions with publishers, a keynote address, and a boisterous reader meet-up with games and over 600 free books to give away! The post-conference Book Festival at the Hotel Monaco was also a rousing success, as was the after party at the Rendezvous Bar that featured 10 amazing readings by attending authors.

Plans are already in the works for next year’s conference in September 2015. We’ll keep you posted! Until then, catch up with our GRNW 2014 Wrap-Up post!
