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!
