I’m back! I had such a wonderful time at the RT Convention. I met the most wonderful people, from readers to bloggers to booksellers and authors. Everyone was incredibly friendly and amazing, and I can’t wait to go to the next conference.
With Julie James at the Carina Press cocktail party.
With Sylvia Day at the Fan-tastic Day event.
At the Book Fair. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by my table!
I met THE Jude Deveraux and had quite the blubbering fangirl moment. It wasn’t my finest moment, but I got her to sign A Knight In Shining Armor for me, which is one of my favorite books. It’s already sitting pretty on my keeper shelf. Meeting her was a conference highlight for me.
Jaycee Clark, one of my long time friends, a great writer, and Biker Dude thinks she makes the best cookies ever. 🙂
I was so very honored to receive a Career Achievement Award this year for Erotic Romance. Here I am trying not to completely blank on my acceptance speech. (Those lights are bright up there, y’all.)
And here is my amazing award. Thank you again to RT BookReviews for this incredible honor.
Had a great convo with Leigh, Angela and Francesca of Under The Covers Book Blog. They were so much fun to hang out with.
The Erotic Romance Panel – Me, Lauren Dane, Maya Banks, Tiffany Reisz and Sylvia Day. We had a blast.
Me and Biker Dude. This is me in flip flops before the temperatures dropped into the 30’s and it freakin’ SNOWED in Kansas City! It was a little cold there, y’all.
On the bench with my friends–Maya Banks, Lillie, and Shannon Stacey.
Me with my bff, the awesome Shannon Stacey
With Shannon Stacey and Lynda Ryba (@FishWithSticks). And we have tiaras! (Shouldn’t everyone?)
I sat and visited with so many more people I didn’t get photos with, like the super amazing Jill Shalvis and the awesome Alyssa Day, some of my Twitter friends like Young Librarian. I’m bummed about that. But I had a wonderful time. Now I’m exhausted and need to sleep for a week, but copyedits for Hope Flames have arrived, and I have a book releasing tomorrow. It’s time to get back to work. 😉
I also brought home a lot of books and swag to share, so look for a giveaway soon!
