RT BookLovers Convention 2009

Consider this a late entry.   🙂

I’ve been to a few conventions in my time – but the best of the best is RT.

This year I roomied with my friend Arial Burnz.
(Sorry – Arial made me remove the beautiful pic of her and her HAND MADE butterfly mask.)
We are crazy together. She and I can talk for HOURS! I was afraid we’d never get any sleep.


 This is Arial at the Faery Ball – she’d just had a crash-landing. Hear her saying, “AAAAAAW.”


 Night owl that I am, I hung out with Cathy and Courtney at the bar, “Gatorville,” where we giggled well into to wee hours.

Here they are at the Faery Ball – Cathy’s wings were so huge!:



During RT, I signed mock-up covers of my first ebook release. Here are my girls Cathy and Courtney at my signing:




Here is my friend Trish Albright (roomie from RT ’08) and her awesome (and very lucky, I might add) boyfriend (her roomie for RT ’09 – LOL) Andrew:


Here are my friends, Christine London (romance author) and her hubby Larry, who sat across from us at the Faery Ball:


I shall finish up with two of the three “Lust in Time” gals, Kristi Astor/Kristina Cook and Amanda McIntyre and me. For some reason, I can’t remember which dinner we were at. Must be the WAY too many Rum Punches and the Butterscotch Martini (courtesy of Jimmy Gaskin. Thanks for the candy, J-man!)


We had a BLAST! I hope you all can join us next year (April 28 – May 2, 2010 in Columbus, Ohio.) Just FYI – April 30 is my birthday – I’m not expecting presents, but I’d love to see you there! Your presence would be the best present ever.

  1. What great photos! Arial looks gorgeous in that mask. Of course, she’s gorgeous all the time anyway. 🙂 I look forward to seeing you next year on your birthday! What a way to celebrate!!

  2. I can’t tell you enough how proud I am of you. I loved your story. And one day we will get together for lunch. The pics are wonderful.
