Pittsburgh 2008 Romantic Time's Conference
Okay, I told
them I wasn't going to post this, but I really like it. (grin)
Here I am with Jocelynn Drake (in the back, and Rachel
Vincent. (across from me.) The
kitchen was really slow in the hotel, so we got out and wandered
around for about a block and found a quiet place to grab a quick
bite to eat between my panels.
My first panel, with Jeannie Stein, Caridad
Pineiro, L.A. Banks, myself, and
We had a great time, but wow, was it hot in
there! It was fantastic having a chance talk to Ms. Banks again,
but alas, we did not meet on the dance floor this year. (grin)

Me and a couple of readers. ;-)

and then with Marjorie M. Liu before everything got started and we were all relaxed. Course,
I already knew Rachel . . . (grin) but it was really cool
seeing her sign books. Made it all the more real for me.
