Authors Dish RWA2019 Packing O Canada V1 300x300 Authors Dish RWA with USA Today Bestselling Author Andie J. Christopher and Author Jenn LeBlancWelcome newbies and seasoned travel veterans to Authors Dish. With only thirteen days until Romance Writers of America 2019 I’m curious what authors and industry professionals always include in their suitcases, what they stash in their conference bag to avoid hunger pains and the things they forget once and hopefully never again.

While some of the authors contributing are not attending, we love they want to hang out and play. We hope their words of wisdom help to ease any anxiety you might have getting all the things in your suitcase.  

May these posts inspire you to shop early, make your lists, and triple check so you are prepared for just about anything. If you’re heading to #RWA19 soon comment below so we can meet up in NYC.

Thank you to all who have dished and those who are still sharing their wisdom.  Stay tuned for more comments and follow the blog so you don’t miss these posts.

Today in the cafe are USA Today Bestselling Author Andie J. Christopher and Author Jenn LeBlanc.

Rae: What five things do you have to pack when attending a conference? 

 

Andie J Christopher 300x300 Authors Dish RWA with USA Today Bestselling Author Andie J. Christopher and Author Jenn LeBlancAndie J. Christopher:

I’m holding this close to my heart as I pack for RWA, to which I will be bringing my LED face mask, my NuFace, hot rollers, my own blow dryer and flat iron, four boxes of individual lashes, and multiple chemical exfoliants.

Jenn LeBlanc:

I need my nametag with all my swag on it. I need my computer and a notebook. Gosh… I don’t know? Beyond the usual clothes and stuff I don’t really need a lot for conference. I intend to bring more back than I take with me 😉

Rae: What is your snack attack must haves in your day bag?

Andie: I’m going to probably stop at a bodega for granola bars, TBH. 

Jenn: If I carry snacks it’s usually sea salted almonds. Very exciting, I know. But I’m not much of a snacker!

Rae:What’s the one thing you forget to pack and swear to remember next time?

Andie: I always forget one thing, but it always changes. It’s sort of exciting to see what it will be when I open my suitcase.

Jenn: I always manage to forget my pajamas for some reason. It’s basically become tradition to hit target before we even get to the hotel because I remember what I need before I land. 

Rae: Thank you so much authors! Readers, what’s the ONE thing you always forget and swear to include next time when you travel? How do you make sure that you remember ;).

I’ll be keeping a running list and will post it a week before #RWA19 so that hopefully no one needs to make a quick run to the lobby market or drug store around the corner. I’ll see you soon for new authors and more ideas!

 


About Author for blog post V1 300x300 Authors Dish RWA with USA Today Bestselling Author Andie J. Christopher and Author Jenn LeBlanc

About Andie J. Christopher:

USA Today Bestselling author Andie J. Christopher writes edgy, funny, sexy contemporary romance featuring heat, humor, and dirty talking heroes that make readers sweat. She grew up in a family of voracious readers, and picked up her first Harlequin Romance novel at age twelve when she’d finished reading everything else in her grandmother’s house. It was love at first read. It wasn’t too long before she started writing her own stories — her first heroine drank Campari and drove an Alfa Romeo up a winding road to a minor royal’s estate in Spain. Andie lives in the Nation’s Capital with her French Bulldog, Gus, a stockpile of Campari, and way too many books.
