Yesterday was Day #3 here at the RT Convention and it was another non-stop whirlwind. I had the opportunity to participate in a special librarian/bookseller party called Afternoon Delight. It was lots of fun to have a chance to meet folks from all over the country who love books–and adore romance! I have a more in-depth post going up tomorrow over at the Casablanca Authors blog with more pics and info so I hope you’ll check that out. Anne was supposed to blog there tomorrow but she tore her ACL and fractured her tibia…so that gal needed a friend to pinch-hit. No worries.
The day continued with more sessions of fun, including a riotous hour with authors JR Ward and Jessica Anderson. They had a swear jar in the room. Each of them had to add $1 for every swear…it got up $70!
Last night the fun continued! I had dinner with three of my fave peeps. Authors Cheryl Brooks, Ashlyn Chase and my new friend Emily Greenwood. Emily is a debut author with Sourcebooks and has a Regency series coming in 2013…look for it!
This is a shot of Cheryl and Ashlyn enjoying dinner and drinks. I took a few others but my dumb iphone doesn’t have a flash on it so lots of them were too dark. *boo hiss*
After dinner, I had the distinct pleasure of getting to meet a couple of the gals on my street team, Sara’s Angels! What fun that was!! Vicki and Jenilinh are two of my die-hard angels and devout romance readers. I got to meet up with the gals for a drink and get to know them a bit better–it was a highlight of my trip!
After a nice chat with my friend and fellow author Lisa Renee Jones, I headed up to bed.
Time to get ready to tackle Day #4! Today I’ve got a meeting with my editor, then it’s the Giant Book Fair, then I’m being interviewed by Joyce Lamb at USA Today and more parties to follow.
