This past weekend was fun and eye-opening. It’s always good to hear the readers take on our novels, and the majority were very eager to share. Not surprisingly, some don’t have a good grasp on how the industry works, and how little imput the author has in some aspects. (Like covers, release dates)
But all in all it was a good small conference, very laid back and peopled with some big names in the industry. I was happy to meet and talk with some of my fav authors. In no particular order: Jenna Peterson, Lorraine Heath, Lori Wilde, Patricia Rice, Cathy Maxwell, Cindy Kirk, Elizabeth Hoyt, Vicki Lewis Thompson, Sandy Blair, Melody Thomas.
The talks by authors were short but very informative and entertaining. Jenna Peterson and Jade Lee could be standup comics, imo.
I picked up books by new-to-me authors as well. The food was fabulous and way too much. 🙂 I did my first ever signing and sold out. YAY! And I’ve posted a few pictures on my website.
So now it’s back to work, after my first interview with a reporter in about an hour. Catch you all later.
