Road Trip

Join us as we travel to the 2014 Book 'em Writer's Conference and Book Fair. The event is free and open to the public. Meet authors, publishers, literary agents, and book promoters. This is a great way to experience a conference if you have not attended one.

If you are interested in going as a group, please email me or one of the other organizers for more details. There is a nominal charge for the van ride, but you get a snack and a chance to hang out with a great group of people.

    The time is fast approaching........Saturday will soon be here! For those who will attend the conference, but is not traveling with the group, please make sure you have the correct address for the conference. Since there are several Robeson County Community College locations, the address is 5160 Fayetteville Road, in Lumberton. Just want to make sure everyone arrives at the right place. Be safe in your travels and look forward to seeing you there!!!!

    I would like to go with the group. If the van is full, I have a Chevy Tahoe that can comfortably carry three to four others. Also, my daughter is a manager at Sea-Tac for Avis and I can get a discount on renting a second van here in Charlotte.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
