Indie romance convention

I am excited to share some news with you I will be hosting an indie (what most people call self-publishers) romance convention next year. I have toyed with this idea in my head for over 2 years because I feel the indie world needs something for them and their readers. I had the privilege to share this idea to Gabrielle Bisset, Tina Flosom and Danielle Blanchard this year and they really liked it. So I decided I would give it a try. I am in the process of getting everything together.  As of right now I have the date, hotel, blog and a few authors. You’re more than welcome to join the blog and follow the progress, but the site won’t officially launch until October.

If you’re an indie romance author and would like to be in the list of attendees please click here

If you’re a blogger and would like to be a featured blogger click here

If you’re a indie reader please join the site and keep up with the progress as it grows and if you have a favorite indie romance author let them know about the convention you never do know if they might sing up. 

I hope this convention will be something that will excite readers that are fans of these fabulous authors, so it will continue to grow each year.


  1. That's awesome Laurie! I'm sure its going to be fantastic! All three of the authors you mentioned are on my reading list, and I'm already a fan of Tina Flosom. I will definitely be checking out the new site!!

  2. Redzsm- I still don't have Tina confirmed yet but I do know she will if she has the time. She stays so busy anymore.

  3. Great idea Laurie! I'll pass it along to the Indie authors I know.

  4. Simtten- Thanks! I really appreciate you spreading the word.

  5. Does it matter if the indie authors are YA or adult or is it just as long as they are romance.

  6. Oh my god! I've been thinking of doing something like this too for awhile. I'm so glad you are putting this together.

  7. Rachel- No, it doesn't matter as long as they are romance.

    Amanda- Thanks!

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
