Rom.Con I've just learned is having a convention in July of 2010 in Denver, CO. It's actually a convention designed for Readers with some pretty amazing authors scheduled, i.e. Susan Mallery, Brenda Novak, Anna Campbell and more.
Registration available November 1st. If you're so included and I've already expressed interest, there is an Author contest where the readers are the judges.

Speaking of RomCon™, you won’t want to miss our one-of-a-kind romance fan convention. All events are geared toward the romance reader--workshops, author round tables, author- and publisher-hosted events, costume balls, and a weekend full of entertainment.
