Romance Conventions

While events like San Diego Comic Con have grown in popularity and smaller conventions keep springing up. In fact, there's basically a con for everything nowadays, including romance novels! Fans love being able to interact with the creators of their favorite books, TV shows, movies, games, and more.

Romance conventions are a fun place for readers to be able to meet like-minded fans and fangirl or fanboy over their favorite books and authors. Most cons have panels and author signings, giving fans the opportunity to interact with their beloved authors in a way they normally wouldn't get the opportunity to.

It stands to reason that romance conventions will continue to grow just as other conventions have. Take a look at this list of just a few cons taking place!
