Rogue Digital Conference!

rogue.jpgThis year’s Romance Writers of America annual conference will not focus on digital publishing, as GalleyCat editor Ron Hogan summarized in an essay last month.

A number of writers, publishers, and readers have organized a rogue digital conference on July 16 at 8 a.m. in the same hotel. Entitled “Think Fresh, Think Digital,” the line-up includes Sarah Wendell of SmartBitchesTrashyBooks, (who was quite recently profiled), Jane Litte from Dear Author, Angela James, executive editor of Samhain Publishing, and the authors Maya Banks and Lauren Dane.

Here’s more from the post: “While we have some great sponsors including: Books on Board, Red Sage Publishing, Samhain Publishing, Quartet Press, and Smart Bitches, this is a streamlined event and we would ask you to bring your own tea, coffee, hashbrowns or donuts. That’s right, it’s BYOTCH-D.”
