Wow! What a conference week!
I have so many pics to share from the San Francisco RWA conference and I'll have to do a double whammy post. I want to start out by giving a shout out to Melissa Marr, winner of the Young adult Romance RITA award for Wicked Lovely. Congrats, Melissa!
I met Melissa during the finalists reception, and darn if I didn't have my camera, so as soon as Simone Elkeles (hint, hint) sends me some pics, I'll be sure to post them. And Melissa said she enjoyed my book, shall I just faint now? haha. Thank you, Melissa!
Oh, and look at the surprise Tina sent me to wish me good luck with the RITAs. She is like the coolest critique partner ever!
Let's start off with the "Readers For Life" Literacy signing where over 500 Romance authors were gathered to sign donated books by publishers to raise money for Literacy. Heather Davis was nice enough to send that photo of me in the previous post, and thank you to Tina for posting! And I had my handy dandy camera ready to shoot any YA writer I came across. Not many could get past my quick trigger finger. Let's see who I ran into...
Alyson Noel, author of Cruel Summer and Saving Zoe with writer, Elizabeth.
Barb Caridad Ferrer, author of Adios to My Old Life & It's Not About the Accent.
Tera Lynn Childs, author of Oh. My. Gods.
Soon to be debut author, Trish Milburn.
Author of Read My Lips, Teri Brown.
Soon to be debut author, Rhonda Stapleton and writer, Amanda Brice from the Fictionistas.
Soon to be debut author, Heather Davis with Ruth Kaufman. I'm sorry Heather, I got you with your eyes closed!
And those are the authors I caught in action! :) Whew! More to come this week!
