Well I'm glad I booked and paid for Romantic Times back in October last year because the financial world sure has changed since then!
I always enjoy it. I've been to two, and had a great time, also furthered my career more than somewhat. I love to meet my American friends, and I also like to day a few days beforehand, so I can see a bit of the area where the convention is set. Last year I stayed with Katherine Falk and her partner Ken Rubin in New York, and had an absolutely wonderful time.
This year I'm staying in another hotel for a few days, and although I've been to Orlando before, I've never done it sans kids, so that should be an interesting experience!
