That's right, I am home from RT 2013.
I have some pictures to share. The first day, I was so excited that I woke up at 4:30 am. Much to my roommates' dismay, the trend continued. I am an early riser and always get up ready to go.
Samhain Publishing had a TON of signage out. They even had these really cool clings on the elevators. I might have taken a few pics with my new publisher. Don't judge me, but I may have kissed one or two.
At that same book signing I also met Angie Fox! She took such time to chat with me, I was amazed. Angie Fox is also one of my funny idols. I was freaking out a bit when she handed me her card and TOTALLY forgot to get a picture. She signed my book, and I love that she wrote all over the page for me. Know that she is also awesome.
I also am heartbroken that I don't have a picture of Dawn from Daydrmzzz (http://daydrmzzz.blogspot.com/). Dawn and I met on Goodreads, and we touched base for just a couple hours in Chicago at the last RT. She introduced me to some fabulous people, and I just had to hang on for the ride. She also beat me with an evil stick, but don't worry. It was totally consensual. :D
My roommates were Mary Abshire aka Diane Thorne and Dani Morgan. We were sad to see the week end. It was an incredible experience, and I hope both of them are going to RT 2014. New Orleans sounds like an absolute blast.
Now I am off to do epic amounts of laundry, and drink even more epic amounts of coffee until my body recovers.
Oh, and I suppose I should actually be writing, too! I only wrote 3k the whole time I was away, so I have some editing and new word catch up to do. Hopefully my body will be a little bit more motivated today. I yawned as I typed that.
Thank you to all the people I met. I am going through all the business cards and each time I add someone to twitter or mark their book on Goodreads, I am hit with another amazing memory.
The romance community truly is a home away from home for me. I am so glad I found you all, and can't thank you enough for the fabulous time.
