…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
Leftover from Wednesday night:
8:15pm’ish – I was on a mission to find Damon Suede and say hello. I overhear “and my semen tasted like an ashtray…” Alas, I knew I was getting close! :) I found him by the pool hanging with Moderatrix Lori (Goodreads M/M Romance Group), Clare London, Heidi Cullinan, and Damon.
And here’s Damon with Lori’s son, Dalton (how adorable are they…both of ’em?!!!)
And it was at this time that the crowds parted, a spotlight from Heaven shown down…I a saw her across the courtyard…yes…JORDAN F’ING CASTILLO PRICE! I casually walked up to her table, sat in an open chair, and pretended like nothing was weird…just listening to the conversation. After a brief flicker of fear in her eyes, she finally said, “You must be Susan”. It matters not that she knows me as her stalker…she KNOWS ME!!!! And she’s AMAZING!
11:00pm’ish – Back downstairs in the lobby bar, those that didn’t hit up the strip club were hanging out enjoying themselves. I spent a good 30 mins talking to KA Mitchell about her next Baltimore book “Bad Influence”…it’s Silver’s story. And I gave her stank-eye about Peter, who I hate as a character. And she shared a pretty amazing story about the inspiration for Quinn / Eli / Peter (Bad Boyfriend). WHAT A NUGGET!!!!
And because my eye never strays far from JCP, here she is with Lou Harper as they try to have a serious conversation about serious stories in serious books…and failing! :)
12:15am’ish As my night starts to wind down, I get to spend my last coherent moments with Tina (Miz) and LC Chase…
…and some of my favorite readers and writers (bottom to top): Rhys Ford, Heather C (The Blog of Sid Love), Lisa (The Novel Approach), and Mary Calmes (I told her that Rand was my book boyfriend…because I am a geek and she needs to know… :) )
And just as I was about to head upstairs to my hotel room, I ran into SA McAuley and Abi Roux (and I told her no matter who tries to claim him or says they love him…ZANE IS, AND ALWAYS WILL BE, MINE!…which got me stares like I was a crazy drunk…and that may be valid…)
Back in the hotel room, I made some care packages for some of my favorite reader friends here at the conference!
Off to bed to get some rest for an early start tomorrow. See you then!
