What is this? Not Going to Confrence Confrence (NGTCC)? Is this some kind of secret club?
Well, NGTCC is the brain child of Romance Diva’s, a forum that is geared toward the romance writer and all its sub-genres.
There are workshops that will help the writer to craft even better works, there is one on how to set up an email newsletter with Mail Chimp, and there are DOOR PRIZES! These are some of the best prizes to offer you’ll find anywhere. There are usually free books to be had, in the past there has been a Tarot reading or two. (I won one my first yeart at NGTCC, it was eerily accurate)
Did I add that there are Publisher Spotlights, Pitch Events, Q & A, Panels to go with the aforementioned Workshops? Oh, and a Virtual Bar to attend after the workshops where you can meet and greet with other writers. If you stumble into the Steamy Virtual Bar, make sure you have a raincoat…there’s a lot of drool there, to go with all the man/woman candy that shows up. Naked abs, beautiful women…(wipes drool from chin What?! I like a hard bodied man and a soft curvy woman!)
