2009 Celebrate Romance Conference, Portland Oregon

Next year’s conference will be held in Portland, Oregon, from Friday February 27th to Sunday March 1st. The registration fee will be the same as it was this year, $150.

Leanne has made arrangements for us at a beautiful hotel in the heart of downtown Portland, The Benson. It’s a gorgeous hotel, originally built in 1912, with all kinds of modern amenities. The hotel rate is $129 per night, which is about the same as it was this year.

You can check out the hotel at their web site:

I’m really looking forward to it - I’ve never been to Portland before and I can’t wait until the end of February! Only ten months away!

When: February 27th – March 1st 2009
Cost: $150
Where: Portland, Oregon
The Benson Hotel


Celebrate Romance (a.k.a. “CR”) is a unique conference where romance readers and authors come together as equals to celebrate their love for the romance genre.


Volunteers. Put on by fans for fans, this conference is a non-profit event for ALL romance lovers.

WHAT MAKES CR SPECIAL? As an author I already attend so many events.

Unlike other conferences, CR’s only agenda is to support you and promote romance. No suits, no meetings, no pressure, and no segregation. With the exception of a booksigning on Sunday morning, authors are just like all the other attendees – fans.

This allows you to hear what romance readers really think first had while sharing your own thoughts on the genre. It’s a wonderful place to gain new readers and make friends.

Oh - you will have a blast in Portland! We go there every now and then - we've got friends near there. . .

Wish I could go to the conference, but don't think it will happen this year! I hope you will let us know how it is!
