I lost my mind at RomanticTimes!

Okay, okay, yes, I've read the other posts about RomanticTimes, but I had to write this one any way.  Why?  Because why not?

I've never attended a live writers' conference.  Online, yes, and as much fun as those were--networking with other authors and online classes, the energy of RT absolutely blew me away.

I ran around like a preteen at a Justin Bieber concert!  Ridiculous.  No time for eating or sleeping.  I swear I'm five pounds lighter.

And did I mention that I only signed at one event instead of both because J.R. Ward and Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris and Nalini Singh were signing, and of course, I had to stand on line :-)

I hate that I didn't get to meet any of the members of FTHRW while I was there, but below are a few pictures of some of my favorites!

Although I've only seen one season of TrueBlood, I've read every Sookie novel!  Love them!

Okay, I think the goober smile says it all!  ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Brenda Jackson, Kimberly Kaye Terry and me!

Yes, that's Anne Rice!

Can you see me back there?  Patricia Rosemoor, Sherill Bodine, and Rebecca York!

I really do have too many pictures, so I'll stop here.  I had the best time, and I look forward to attending again next year.  I hope that I'll get to see you there.

Angela, your enthusiasm got me excited! Now I want to attend an RT Conference. It's obvious you had a terrific time. Thanks for sharing.

If anyone saw me...they probably thought I was losing my mind. I was :-)

Angela, so sorry we missed you at RT! Still, it looks like you had a good time at the event. I know Sherill Bodine...such a sweet woman-ran into her in Bergen, Norway, if you can believe it. Glad you could be an avid reader at RT! Rolynn

Yes, it's hard not to catch your enthusiasm, Angela. I agree with you on how much fun it is to meet the authors you love to read. At my first RWA conference I got to HUG Julie Garwood. It was a moment to die for. So glad you had such a great time.

I have heard so many good comments about this RT event. Some day, I really need to attend.
