#RT14 Photos and Fun!

I thought I’d share some pics from this wild and wacky week in New Orleans.

First and foremost…the RT Convention is all about the READERS!!!!! I found readers everywhere in NOLA. From the lobby, to fun events like the Sock Hop, to Bourbon Street. Romance readers were all over the place and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Before I was ever a published author, I was a reader and I still am. So in addition to meeting my readers, I got to do some Fan-Girling of my own!!!  Elisabeth Staab is always such a doll and can be counted on for good convo! Damon Suede is one of my all time favorite people! Funny and sexy. Susanna Kearsley and I had a blast at the Mardi Gras event with our super fab publisher Sourcebooks! She’s such a fantastic woman! A party wouldn’t be a party without Robin Covington, Avery Flynn, and Kimberly Kincaid! EEP! I found Kristin Proby in the lobby and she was super sweet! Stephanie Julian writes HOT and SEXY erotic romance and she’s my buddy xx Julie Ann Walker is always a good time. She’s as fun and sassy as you’d expect her to be!! Nely Cab, Molly Harper, Brookyln Ann, Joanne Kenrick, Cynthia D’Alba, Gerri Brousseau…Phew! The list goes on!

And of course, RT would not be complete without the cutie patootie cover models!

Of course NOLA is famous for it’s food and drink, so a bunch of us decided to workout every morning. Here’s a shot of the #RT14 Fit Club– Team Sexy Badass.

One of the coolest part of RT this year was that one of my besties came along! We took in the sights and had a few laughs along the way…as usual.

If all goes as planned, by the time you’re reading this I should already be in New Olreans for the RT Booklover’s Convention. This year’s con is sure to be wild, crazy, fun, and totally exhausting. My schedule is jam packed this year and I can’t wait to connect with readers and see some of my author buds! The convention runs from May 14-May 18 and takes place at the Marriott in the French Quarter.
