Wow! What a wild ride. My first ever Romantic Times Booklovers Convention. I’d heard so much about it and let me tell you the experience did not disappoint. My pictures, however, did! I’m terrible at taking pictures. I bring my camera to everything and then promptly forget all about using it. Oh well, here’s a link to a great new agent’s blog – Adventures in Agentland – by Natalie Fischer, who has been with Bradford Literary Agency for a number of months now. I had the pleasure of meeting her at the convention. She did a wonderful picture montage of some of the key elements of the convention – and if you watch carefully, you might actually catch a glimpse of my alter ego.
Highlights of the convention include (but are not limited to): A workshop with Dean Koontz – he’s awesome! A fabulous workshop with Michael Hauge on plot structure, great panels with authors; Vivi Anna, Lauren Dane, Megan Hart, Kimberly Kaye Terry, Brenda Jackson, and many more. Just hanging with some of my other fave authors, including Ann Aguirre, Beth Williamson, HelenKay Dimon and Vivian Arend. Meeting my oh- so- lovely cover artist Kanaxa at the Samhain Publishing In-N-Out Burger party! And gosh, what else? Oh too many parties, functions and mixers to mention!
I would like to say a special thanks to my CaRWA peeps, Vivi Anna, Kymber Morgan and Susan Retzlaff for twisting my arm (didn’t take much) and for making this so much fun!
