Romance Slam Jam 2009 CANCELLED

Due to the uncertain economy and the looming recession, Romance Slam Jam 2009 will not be held this coming year. As much as we hate to cancel, we cannot proceed at this time. Everyone is tightening their belts and preparing for the worst.

The Romance Slam Jam has been an honored tradition and celebration for readers and writers alike, and to have to make this decision was extremely hard. The Slam Jam 2009 Committee has talked all week about ways to continue and cut costs and found it impossible to do so.

Those of you who have registered for the conference and/or purchased ad space in the program will receive a full refund, which will be mailed out by Nov, 3, 2008

Reading is food for the soul, and we know people won╩╝t stop reading. We urge you all to remember the commitment Slam Jam has to readers and writers alike and to consider this year off a bonus to save money for the Romance Slam Jam Anniversary Cruise in 2010.

See you in Miami!
