More Conference Talk!

Everyone’s been sharing their conference and post-conference experiences, so I thought I’d join the crowd. And I brought photos–mostly of me, I’ll admit. But ya know, it’s my camera. 🙂
For me, this year’s conference was all about networking with fellow writers and I think I succeeded. Well, I partied a lot, anyway.
I was thrilled to finally get a chance to visit and party with my fabulous blogging group, Romance Bandits, and even had a few chance encounters with the Golden Rooster. (A long story, but visit the blog a few times and you’ll catch on!) Here’s a picture of the Cheeky Chook with Romance Bandit and Kensington debut author Jeanne Adams. Don’t they make a cute couple?
Here’s a shot of me with another Bandita and double Rita finalist, the lovely and talented Avon historical author, Anna Campbell.
Here are a few familiar OCC faces. This was taken the night of the Rita awards. It’s me, with Jennifer Apodaca and Michele Cwiertny. Don’t we all look fabulous?
And here I am with yet another Bandita, Sourcebooks Casablanca author Loucinda McGary. Her first book, The Wild Sight, is out in October and she’s already starting to garner wonderful reviews! We’re showing off our first sale ribbons!
I’ve got lots more photos but an alarming number of friends have threatened me with death if I post them here. I won’t mention any names … but some people are so touchy!
Hope your conference experience was wonderful!

    You know how those teeny tiny holes got in the box, don’t you?

    With these teeny tiny little knives

    LOL Joanie! I’m being followed by kittens everywhere I go! What happened???

    Thanks for coming over here. It was truly a big highlight of mine to hang out with you, too! 🙂

    One of the highlights of my SF trip/conference was getting to spend time with you, Kate!

    BTW, I’ve been collecting stray kittens for you 🙂 Watch for a BIG box with teeny tiny little holes in it 😉

    Hey Maureen! It was fun for everyone! And somehow I ended up with NO photos of you. How does this happen? Next year, I’m taking pics of everything, I tell you! Every outfit, every meal, every place we go, everyone I meet.

    And I’ll get more death threats. 🙂

    Nancy! Hi, Bandita! Yes, it really is nice when we can catch the Chook without a drink in his…er, wing.

    I love that shot of Aunty Cindy and me!!

    Hi Trish – another lovely Bandita! It’s great to see you here. Hey, I think I have a photo of you in my collection…must get those posted very soon. 🙂

    Hi Cassondra! Hmm, looks like the start of a Bandita invasion…

    LOL, I’ve got plenty of blackmail material–but I would never do that. Honest. No, my fingers aren’t crossed.

    And you’re so right about the GR. Never a hair out of place, always dapper and charming any time of day or night. It’s unnerving, really.

    Anna, my fellow Bandita! How lovely to see you here! I have several more wonderful photos of you in my stash and I promise to reveal them to you very soon. 🙂

    And thanks for mentioning the book! I can’t wait to see it, either!

    Hey Michele! I’m sorry you didn’t get a chance to formally meet the GR. I’ll definitely arrange that next year. You have to be careful though, he’s quite the heartbreaker!

    Jen, how’d you guess? But of course, it’s the Grand Mistress!! LOL

    And you look beautiful, m’dear. Yes, next year we must take our camera out of our suitcase! 🙂

    Kate, what great photos! The Golden Rooster actually looks sober for a change. I especially love the one of you and Cindy with your pink ribbons.

    Hmmmm. I cannot specifically remember threatening KATE with death, but there are some photos floating around out there that could be blackmail material…can you say too tired and too much wine and too much jet lag?

    Ugh.

    THESE photos are great, however, and we did have a good time, however tiring. And that Golden Rooster–he never seems to have a bad hair day or a non-photogenic moment. What’s up with that?

    Miss Kate, always lovely to see you. And I DID run into you a lot at conference! What a great photo of us! Thanks for posting it. And isn’t the rooster a handsome fellow? Can’t wait for Washington now! Hey and can’t wait for your book to drop into my hot little hands either. Whoo-hoo!

    Great pictures, Kate! I caught sightings of the GR, but we were never formally introduced. 😉

    Threatened with Death, huh? LOL

    We’ll definitely be better about taking more photos next year…

    Fun Blog!

    OH!!! I KNOW!!! I bet I know who threatened death! Is it the Mistress of Minions????

    I am pretty sure I should have threatened death. But you look fantastic, Kate! I love seeing everyone’s pics. It makes me think maybe I should have taken my camera out of my suitcase…
