Just returned home from RWA National in Washington DC a few days ago and my head is still spinning!
What can I say? It was a GREAT conference! The Literacy Signing on Wednesday night was overwhelming. Even though the room was huge, there were so many people and the noise level was so intense that I suffered from what my best friend's mom used to call "The Big Eye!" I did sell some books, and made a great new friend of the author sitting next to me, Amanda McIntyre. The event raised over $60,000 for literacy charities and I was proud to have been a part of it!
The Sourcebooks signing was a bit like the Literacy Signing on a smaller scale. Ten of us Casablanca authors signed our books and we completely RAN OUT OF BOOKS with about a half-hour left of our allotted time. I'd call that a rousing success!
It was GREAT meeting so many readers and signing so many copies of The Wild Sight! I'll post a piccie below of me and my lovely publicist Danielle Jackson taken at the Sourcebooks signing.
I returned home to the wonderful news that The Romance Junkies voted The Wild Sight one of their "Debuts That Rock!" I am honored and thrilled to be included on their list! (To see the entire list just click on the title of this post.)
I'm afraid I still use an antiquated 35 mm camera, so I don't have any of my pictures back yet, but I will share one more sent to me of 15 Banditas and the Golden Rooster (that's me hiding behind Anna Campbell) taken at the Second Annual Romance Bandit Bash. Needless to say, a great time was had by ALL at that shindig!
