Has anyone attended one these Romantic Conventions before? 

Just visited one of my favorite UBSs and the owner told me this year's RomCon is being held here in Colorado Springs and she gave me a half-price discount code for registration.  I was wondering if anyone here has ever attended one before and whether it was worth it.  There are over 100 authors attending (appears to be heavily slanted toward erotica and paranormals) several of which I recognize, a handful of which I have read, a few who are favorites. 

Here's the link for the agenda and author list.  heart

Oh my gosh, I would love to go to that!  I read over the schedule and it sounds like FUN, plus so many great (to me) authors!  I wish I could come up with a reason to ditch the kiddos with the hubby and head to CS, but I have a feeling it wouldn't go over well.

I've been to one with my mother (who writes M-M) and it was mainly geared towards that genre and LGBT but it was fun. TONS of freebie and giveaways and of course you get to meet all the authors.  I don't read M-M but I went along for moral support since it was her first.  Lorelei James was there making an appearance and I got her autograph on my copy of All Jacked Up.  Go if you have the chance!!

I'd go in a heartbeat if it was that close to me!!!  Sounds like lots of fun and I recognize a lot of the authors.

Never been to one but I wouldn't hesitate to go.

If it was local, I'd jump on it.

Renee, here's a reason for you to ditch and attend...you.  Don't you deserve to spoil yourself a bit every once in a while?  Not that for to drive or fly...just saying.
