Hi and Bye
Just a very brief post in-between trips…
I arrived home last night from San Francisco and the RWA National Conference – tonight, we leave for our intercontinental extravaganza, so packing and laundry and jetlag are eating my day. (Yes, I still get jetlag when traveling within my timezone. I am not a good traveler. ugh.)
San Fran was wonderful – I got to meet with my wonderful agent and editor and attend my first Friday-night publisher party. The whole week was filled with brushes with greatness, including these banner moments:
*holding Lisa Kleypas’ espresso
*passing Sabrina Jeffries the sweetener
*bumping elbows with Elizabeth Hoyt at lunch
*congratulating Julia Quinn on her 2nd RITA in two years!
*being kissed by the wonderful Anna Campbell
*getting rear-ended in a taxicab with Madeline Hunter (yes, we’re all okay)
*sitting second-row, center for the RITAs and Golden Hearts, within touching distance of Courtney Milan, Amy Baldwin, Lindsey Faber, Toni Blake, Julie Anne Long, and Jade Lee! Awesomeness.
Obviously each of those is a story in its own right, and there were so many more…I even attended some workshops in there, too. 🙂 But the best part of conference was seeing all my wonderful friends and making new ones. I wish I had the time and brainpower to blog more about it, but laundry calls. If you were there for the puppy shower, the late-night drinks, the plotting chats, the random hugs in halls and elevators…thank you so much for making my conference amazing. If you weren’t there, start making plans for D.C. 2009! Rumor has it, early copies of GODDESS OF THE HUNT may be available….
