RT 2012 Recap

Ah guys, it's Saturday night--the last night in Chicago for RT 2012 Convention and while I'm pretty tired (and my poor toes are hurtin') I had a blast.

The flight to Chicago wasn't too bad, except babies on planes are worse than snakes on planes. Just my opinion. 

Once I actually got to the hotel, the first author I spied was Kimberly Derting, who I pretty much pointed and stared at. Yep. Poor woman. Then I got to meet (to name a few) Rachel Vincent, Jeri Smith Ready, Sophia Jordan, Mary Lindsey, Brodi Ashton, Josephine Angelini, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Jana Oliver, Kristi Cook, Ann Aguirre, Cole Gibsen, Charlaine Harris, and a slew of other authors.

Oh, and I saw JR Ward. And man, she is just kickass. 

Plus I got to hang out with a ton of Entangled Authors: Jus, Katie, Stephanie, Lisa, Lauren. Amy, and so many, many more. 

And I met a lot of amazing readers and bloggers. It was so great putting faces to bloggers.  Once I can put all my thoughts together, I'll give you guys a much better recap. For right now, I'll share some pictures.  

Such a terrible pic of me, but it's Charlaine Harris

 Books being given away at Entangled Party

 A poster of my adult novel being released in October. Yes. It's under the name J. Lynn

Ah, Rachel Vincent... and me, my demon eyes, and my book...
