The Sad Goodbye

I went to the book fair today-it was insane. Row upon row of amazing authors-Gena Showalter, our own Lillian Feisty, Tawny Taylor and so many more signing books and looking lovely. Tawny was talking to someone wielding a video camera-I'm not sure what that was about but maybe she'll spill the beans!

Had lunch with Jax and Karen, where we were met by Katherine Belle and her husband and gorgeous little daughter {she's adorable!}. You could see everyone was beginning to drag-and from what I heard about the party that I missed the night before-the Cowboy Vampire bash-I can understand why.
Everyone was beginning to pack up-slumped in bar chairs-relaxing and recovering in preparation for the Mr. Romance competition and the Immortals party-the last party of RT.
I looked at some of the pics that have been taken throughout this week-wait till you see! Everyone looks so amazing in their costumes. Of course there are some that perhaps should be locked away in some bribery vault-but I'm sure those will pop up as well.

A few of us holed up in a hotel room and cuddled on the bed-resting and chatting. We decided to-gasp-forego the Mr. Romance thing in lieu of an early dinner. Cookie was coming to pick me up and they were all exhausted-plus-when you've seen six or seven gorgeous hunks walking around in tight shirts for a few days they start to get a bit commonplace {did I just say that?! I must really be tired!!}

Cookie joined us and Feisty, Karen, Lisa and I went to this awesome seafood place...and then we parted ways. It was sad-but I'm heartened by the fact that I will see them all again in six weeks for RWA.

Now they have to get revved up and sexy once more for their last wild night as Immortals. I'm looking very forward to those pics-They have some great costumes for that. ;)

My wonderful week of fun has ended-I have a bag of books and pens, magnets and cards...I've met so many fascinating people-gotten my fill of eye candy-celebrated my first sale at a Fairy Ball-and met a handful of divas and other authors I am proud to call friends.

I want to thank them all for making this such a special week for me. And thank everyone who came to my blog for sharing the fun. If my mother wasnt coming for a visit I think I could easily sleep for a week.

I cannot wait for RWA!!!! Safe journey to all those flying home tomorrow-I'll be seeing you online soon!!

Love you, RG! Give The Cookie a squeeze from me, and tell him all the Diva girls are half in love with him and his wicked sense of humor-the Scottish dirty talk was the funniest damn thing I have ever heard! Even funnier watching the way it made your cheeks flame and your pupils dilate. I believe you were actually panting by the time he was done!
Congrats again on your sale!!!!!!!!!!
Miss you already!

Can't wait for the picture. I'm sure you're all back. I'll definitely be at RT in Pittsburgh, hook or crook.

*waves* How you doing? Wish I was going to be at RWA with y'all. I guess I'll have to be one of the people living vicariously through your blog this time...
