Conference 2007 Pics!



Okay, now that I've figured out how to get a slide pic to show up, I can give you some low down on what went down...

Well, many of you know, but Ms. Thing, Crystal J. sold to Kensington. Lovingly, she is on my most hated list this week until further notice. She's fine with it. LOLOL

Sandy and I totally hit it off as roomies and come Hell or high water, San Fran is going to rock in 2008! I'm already trying to decide what body parts or organs I can sell to go. What's the going rate of a slightly used liver these days? Hrm... Will have to research that...

Okay, I'll put that on the back burner for now. Other good news... I met so many people. Divas, and writers... Oh.. and did I mention Vicki Lewis-Thompson... totally stalked her.... (BG) She's so sweet. And Sherrilyn Kenyon was a wonderful inspiration at the PRO retreat. Sandy was stalking her! LOLOL Lisa Kleypas was one of the key-note speakers and she is as funny as she is a lovely, inside and out. Lisa Jackson was the other speaker and both had such wonderful stories to tell. So much great advice. *sigh*

I'm afraid to name all the people I did meet because I know I'll miss at least half, but the pics give you a good idea of what was happening. The muse is whispering in my ear. What workshops? There were workshops?? *Big innocent looks*

There was the Diva Dinner, which was a blast and such an honor to be included in such a wonderful group of talented, lovely, boisterous ladies.

The agent and editor meetings went well. I met with Angela James and Jennifer Miller of Samhain and they requested the WIP that has been nicknamed Angie: the twit that won't die. Thankfully Angela thought that was funny. :) I also got a partial request from Sha-Shana Crichton, so I have to buckle down and get that syno written. The networking was phenomenal. People all over. The hardest part was deciding who to tackle first! Tawny didn't even need the football pads. I was very reserved... NOT! It was too much fun.... And I am now seriously broke. LOLOL

I hate Crystal, too, for the time being ;) (hugs and congrats on your sale Crystal!) I'm going to nationals one of these years. Good luck with Samhain, Diana! They're wonderful.

OMG! Diana, I had such a wonderful time hanging with you. Hmmmm, wonder what household items Keith won't miss too much if I sold them to fund next year's trip???
