Cleveland Rocks Romance Conference 2008

o, a couple weeks ago, Barb and I went to Cleveland to their conference. It was a blast. It was small like a mini-con, but that was what was so nice about it. Intimate enough where you really got to mingle and get to know people. As you can see, after a 5 1/2 hour drive, we were more than ready to par-tay! And I've got my camera ready. I am a picture freak;)) Here are just few of the many pics I took!!

The main reason we went was to meet our good friend Rhonda Stapleton in person, and she truly is Rhonda Fabulonda! She did an amazing job coordinating the conference, and she was soooooo fun-nay! Her Simon Pulse romantic comedy Stupid Cupid is going to fabulous! The only thing missing was our other good friend Amanda Brice who's up for a Golden Heart for her YA time travel. She was supposed to go, but couldn't make it. Bummer. I can't believe I'm going to miss her at nationals this year, but next year you can be sure my butt will be in DC. for sure.

And of course, it was awesome as always seeing my fabulous agent, Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency. No one, NO ONE, works harder than she does! Okay, so maybe her assistant Judith Ann works as hard as she does. Seriously, they make an awesome team!

And here we are with Kris Yankee, another Book Cents Babe and Romance Diva. Very sweet woman, and her hubby was pretty cool too;))

Barb, Kris and myself really did get to know each other. Fun, fun, fun!!!! Especially picking our raffle baskets;) Hope we didn't scare you too much, Kris!

OMG Holly Jacobs and Susan Gable are amazing women. We had soooo much fun hanging out with them. They are so talented. They gave a great workshop, and their books are must reads. Holly has a couple out now and Susan has one coming out in February that I cannot WAIT to read. You can bet I'll be hanging out with them again the next time I see them. Poor women;))

Barbie had as much fun as I did with them. I repeat.....poor women;)) They didn't know what was comig when they met us!

Harlequin editor Birgit Davis Todd was a lovely woman. Authors Stephanie Bond and Jamie Denton were also very nice people. All in all, one of the best conferences I've been to in a while. Only now I'm going through conference withdrawl :-(

Karitown out!
