RT Convention 2012… Score!

I’m slowly digging out from under all the emails, facebook posts and comments, and laundry now that I’m back from the RT Booklovers Convention. It was a wonderful week filled with eye-opening workshops, reunions with friends, and meet-ups with fans I’ve been dying to see in 3D since we met on facebook.

JA Konrath, Blake Crouch, and Mark Coker had really insightful things to teach us. Nalini Singh gave aspiring authors words of advice, and Ann Voss Peterson shared a great technique for shorter length novels.

And now, here are some pics of the fun we had together…


Kris Tualla and I went Intergalactic for a little while…

We also got all “bad girl” with our bad selves with Belinda Boring and Lacey Weatherford…

I became the stuffing of a Yummy Hero sandwich…

And a Scottish Highland lass…

But the best part was meeting up with fans and friends! I’ll let you put your own captions to these… LOL

The Ultimate Meet-Up…

Image DetailThis time last year, I was greener than Kermit the Frog in terms of being an author. With my first book published (Trinity) and one contracted (Relic), I was excited and terrified to step beyond the comforts of the internet and actually MEET IN PERSON the people who would become my fan base and friends. 

Romantic Times Book Lovers Convention in LA last year was tantamount to a Debutante Ball for me and all my friends that had their first books released. It was magical! My feet never touched the ground. I connected with friends and fans, and even had a bunch of fan-girl moments of my own! Well, I couldn’t say no to going back again. So much has happened in only a year! With five books of varying length under my belt, a ton of friends and fans to reconnect with, RT 2012 is the ULTIMATE MEET-UP!

I know I won’t be seeing ALL of you there, and it breaks my heart. And yet some of you I’ll Just wanted to thank all of you who have been with me from the beginning and those who have just found the Brethren and me, for your love and support, hilarity and grace, and the way you’ve become the best circle of friends a person could have.see soon thereafter at Arizona Dreamin’. One day, I’d like to be able to do a whirlwind tour to all the places where I have friends and fans. Talk about a dream trip! But for now, I must use the convention/conference model to do my Meet-n-Greets. 

By this time next year, there will be even more books and stories to make you gasp and swoon, to make your heart race, and to make you sigh with contentment once you’re done reading! For now, though,the Brethren are waiting for YOUR return visit to their stories…

Hugs to you all!
Deena
