Two Fab Conferences, an epic road trip and a RONE Award- Victoria Vane

Hi Everyone!

I have recently returned home after an EPIC three week trip that included two fabulous conferences and ended with a RONE award for BEAUTY AND THE BULL RIDER! I had such a great time.

My trip began in Spokane, Washington at the HISTORICAL ROMANCE RETREAT. This reader-centric conference, hosted by Delilah Marvelle and Renee Bernard is unlike any other and not to be missed by any lover of historical romance and historical clothing!  It included a historical gaming night, movie night, afternoon tea, multi-author book signing and a grand ball. Here are some photo and video highlights! (Click images to see full size.)

Our Desert Road Trip

At the end of the retreat, hubby and I left Spokane Washington on an epic two-week road trip through Montana, Utah, and Nevada! We visited the Bonneville Salt Flats and the Great Salk Lake as well as four National Parks to include Yellowstone, Arches, Bryce Canyon and Zion.

After eating the best burger of my life, (you MUST look at this menu!!!) followed by homemade cactus ice cream at a tourist trap in Virgin, Utah, we hit the road again to spend  a weekend in Las Vegas, and two nights in Palm Springs

Here is what happens when a middle- aged couple drives through the Mojave desert in a rented KIA!


We made a brief visit to the fabulous LA Garment District...

And then went on to Burbank for the 2017 INDScribe conference!

I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to meet and chat with so many readers at IND'Scribe this year! The Reader Rave luncheon was a huge success as was the book signing!

The conference ended with the annual RONE Awards (Recognition of Novel Excellence) in which I was thrilled to win an award for BEAUTY AND THE BULL RIDER!  

I was in excellent company with many great romance authors. I was particularly thrilled to share the honors of this night with my good friend and fellow historical romance author, Meara Platt!

What is on your bucket list?

    What a thrill to see Victoria Vane, one of my favorite authors, and your RONE award is so well deserved, Victoria! Everything you do is magic, and yet you are so humble about your talent. I’m looking forward to reading your trilogy, Virtue, Valor, and (yum!) Vengeance!

    What a fabulous trip! I enjoyed following it and seeing a bit of America along the way.
