And so the RWA Conference in New York is now written into the pages of history. But it was amazing. The adrenaline rush has settled and I'm almost back to normal this morning. I'll share a few more pictures with all y'all and tomorrow we'll turn the channel and get back into our normal blogging mode.
These are the lovely roses that came with that big diamond for selling one million books with Montlake Romance...
Just in case you haven't seen it splashed all over my FB pages the past couple of days. I'm hoarse from telling everyone who'd stand still about it.
And these lovely folks are part of the Montlake team, Kelli, Marlene, Anh and Jessica...
The Montlake book signing was awesome. I LOVE my readers! Y'all are the most awesomest (yes, that is definitely a word because it is in my dictionary...never mind that I wrote it in there myself) folks in the whole world.
And in case you missed the other BIG news...How to Marry a Cowboy won this for best contemporary single title book at the National Reader's Choice Awards ceremony.
And there was a make up session for some filming. I didn't realize I looked so much like my sister!
And that night we had the grand finale...the RITA'S which is the Oscar's to a romance author. No, I didn't win or even final in that contest this year, but there were some amazing authors who were presented with the golden lady statue and I congratulate every single one of them.
This last picture is four of us getting ready to go into the Grand Ballroom at the Marriott hotel...
And so the fastest week in the world has ended. It's time to write books so my amazing readers can have something to read...it's time to start planning for next year...which will start July 13 in San Diego, California...hey, that's less than a year away!
