I won’t be around for the next two weeks because Wendy, my lovely friend and guest reviewer, and I are going on a dream trip. We are attending the first ever Historical Romance Retreat which is being held at the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington State, USA.
“Washington’s grandest hotel. Whether it’s the soaring architecture, award-winning amenities, rich history, or simply its proximity to nearby Spokane attractions, The Historic Davenport Hotel has welcomed film stars, explorers, writers, politicians and other luminaries for more than 100 years.”
It has been organised by authors, Renee Bernard and Delilah Marvelle, who have some some fabulous events lined up, including High Tea, a Gambling Night with Historical Games, an Absinthe Night with Historical Drinks, and a Grand Ball. There is also a book fair and book signings.
We get the opportunity to mingle with lots of authors and fellow lovers of historical romance for three days in this beautiful historical setting. I can’t believe I will actually be meeting some of the top names in historical romance… Mary Balogh, Tessa Dare, Elizabeth Hoyt, Lorraine Heath, Anna Campbell to name but a few.
I am hoping to keep a diary while I’m there and, as many of the attendees will be wearing historical costumes, I will have my camera at the ready. You can read all about my adventures and see some of the photos I took in my October post.
