1. Got to meet E.L. James (again, but of course she didn't remember the first time).
2. Met the first editor who "signed" me - a fledgling author only writing for 9 months, and then released me from the contract when I landed an agent some 2 months later from a contest win. She was gracious and kind and I love her. Got to meet her for the first time and she told me she'd followed my success over the years. Wow. A peak moment for me.
3. Got to spend time with my awesome, hunky narrator, J.D. Hart, who dressed the part of a pirate and brought some attention to my signing table. God, how I love this man and his talents, but his friendship and big heart most of all.
4. Got conscripted for another boxed set - but not until 2016! Whew! All military and releasing in time to do a fundraiser for a Vet's non-profit to be determined.
6. Fan-girled Sylvia Day and re-connected with some of my author
friends from San Francisco I never see unless I go to a convention!
7. Heard the couple next door having wild monkey sex, which went along with the thunder and lightening that rattled the windows all night long...
9. Learned you can take Sonoma County wine to Dallas, packed in cowboy boots. I brought 4 bottles, and had a little piece of home to warm my heart.
10. Interviewed for a Dallas TV show and some book club venues. Also did a podcast interview with my narrator for a brand new audio blog.
Whew! Long flight home, but I'm charged up and feeling really filled. Now I have work to do. How about you? Have you ever attended RT? Do you enjoy conventions?
Life is one fool thing after another.
Love is two fool things after each other.
