Y'all, I had such a great time at the RT Booklover's Convention! It's always so much fun, and it always goes way too fast. Seems like I just get there and it's time to go home. In spite of my best intentions, I don't take enough photos, I don't get enough sleep, and I don't talk to everyone I want to talk to.
Tuesday, after all my flights were on time, I get to KC where the lovely Janette Kenny picks me up. We went to lunch and shopping at DSW, then off to the hotel where we got an upgrade. So far, so good! That night, we joined the Aussies for dinner at a nearby restaurant and I came home with a package of dark chocolate Tim Tams. Mmmmm.
On Wednesday, the official fun began. For the next several days, I went to the most awesome workshops, attended fabulous parties, talked late into the night with old friends and made new friends too. The vibe at RT was so positive. I told Mr. Harris that I felt as if I'd attended a revival. Everyone was happy, positive, and thrilled with the changes in publishing. I'm so very excited for my indie debut coming up. HOT PURSUIT is almost ready to go. I'm finishing up the edits, and I hope to have it ready for you sometime in the beginning of June. If you want to be kept up to date about it, please kept checking back or sign up for my newsletter here.
And now it's time for some pictures!

The amazing menu at Lidia's, where we had dinner Friday night.

And here I am at the giant book fair. I can't wait for next year in New Orleans! Every year is bigger and better, and I look forward to seeing what they manage to pull off in the Crescent City. Hope to see you there!
