As previously posted, membership with the Romance Writers of America will also provide you some membership privileges at local chapters.
If you are based in the GTA, you need to check out the Toronto Romance Writers. They represent most of the local romance writers and they are a great resource for author visits. You can register for their newsletter. This is completely free and will give you information about local events and local writers. You can also get access to resources on their Facebook page.
Maureen McGowan and Molly O'Keefe were present at the event and featured some content from an upcoming documentary: Love Between the Covers.
