I love the Romantic Times Conference for all the reasons Sylvia named — and about 2 billion more 🙂
I am exhausted and under deadline and having a helluva time keeping my head above water as I try to play catch up. So I will hit the high points for me:
The Western Reader Round Up event (as Lorelei James) with these wonderful ladies: Beth Williamson, Cat Johnson, C. H. Admirand, Janette Kenny, Cindy Holby, Margaret Brownley — line dancing, book giveaway, all sorts of fun stuff! Ooh, and we all wore boots! This pic is courtesy of Cat Johnson:
The Mystery Chix and Dix morning mixer (as Lori Armstrong) where I was privileged to meet the one and only William Link, the creator of such shows as Columbo, Murder She Wrote, and Diagnosis Murder. Here’s some of the rest of the Chix and Dix – Rhys Bowen, me, Lee Goldberg, Brett Battles, Allison, DP Lyle and Robert Browne
The RT Awards ceremony where my Lorelei James book BRANDED AS TROUBLE, won the Independent Publisher Award for Best Erotic Romance! The glass award is beautiful. Ah, sorry, no pics. I sort of suck in the pic taking dept.
I loved hanging out with the posse from my publishing house, my editor, my writer friends, my readers, my fab friends here from MSW, and meeting new readers and writers and bloggers…the list goes on and on, and I know I’m leaving people out, which is why I don’t normally do a wrap up post. No, I didn’t dress in costume, but I did have people taking pics of the different pairs of boots I wore every day 🙂 Sarah from Smart Bitches Trashy Books was on a mission to photograph my boots — this was Saturday’s pair
I have extra books I brought home just to give away to you all — so answer the one simple question we posed during our hunky cowboys panel: What is your favorite western?
