The RT Booklover's Convention Continues!
I'll be starting my last day at the RT Booklover's Convention this morning. Got the big booksigning from 10:45 AM to 2 PM, and some cocktail parties tonight. They let the general public into the booksigning at 11:00, so if any of you are in the Chicago area, come on over! You can bring in books you already own and have them signed by the author. The limit is 2 per author, I believe. Of course, while you're here, you can buy as many books as you can carry!
I spent most of the day in workshops, attending one on adding humor to your book. My friends Ashlyn Chase and Dee Brice were on the panel. It was lots of fun, and I won a goody bag for asking a question!
Later on, I attended a presentation on self publishing by Bob Mayer,
who is doing our Indiana RWA chapter's mini conference on April 21st in Indianapolis. For more information on the Mini Conference, visit the IRWA website.
After that, I attended the RT Awards ceremony, but take a look at what I found in the promo aisle! It would appear that one of the CBEB's more adorable hunks, Ivan Rusilko,
is now an erotic romance writer!
LOL! He can be the cover model for his own books!
That evening, went to the Avon Books cocktail party, and then I had dinner and drinks with my pals Ashlyn Chase, Sara Humphreys, and Emily Greenwood. The bar was crowded, but we had faith in Sara!
She is awesome! She got us a table in a quiet corner of the bar where we could actually hear each other!
Notice I stayed away from the margaritas this time, although it might have been better if I hadn't. The tequila put me to sleep last night. The chardonnay just loosened my tongue... Anyway, we had a great time together and then Ash and I called it a night and went back to our room. Must get my beauty sleep before the big booksigning!
Oops! Almost forgot the hunk....
