The first author I saw when I pulled into the hotel was Red Phenoix. She is one of my favorite authors and I love her books. I was all fangirl about getting to meet her and her wonderful husband. She was and is so grateful to her readers (fans) and she really lets you know it. Was able to have lunch with her and hubby and some of her readers and we all had a GREAT time. She hosted a chocolate party in her room the last night we were there and had a BLAST!! Thank you Red for making my first book conference the best it could be. Love you and your husband.
I got to finally meet A.R. Von. Have you ever had one of those moments when you know you know someone, but your not quite sure. That is what happened to me when I saw her. I just stared like a crazy woman and I finally asked her name. I was thrilled!!!! Wish I had taken her up on the invite to go out Friday night because she got sick and didn't get to see her again. Next time definitely going to get tons of pictures and party with my girl!! Love ya Ava!!!!
Next we met two Awesome authors at the pizza social on Friday night. Lori Brighton and Harris Channing. I feel so lucky to have met them. We had so much fun just talking and socializing with them. I feel like I have made two friends that I will see again soon. Love you ladies!!!!
We attended some very informative panels and I learned quite a bit about a variety of subjects. On Friday night we went to a panel on BDSM and had a demo from a Dom and sub. They showed how ordinary household items can be used and a sensory item in BDSM lifestyle. They call them pervertables I think. It was very informative. We attended some conferences on promotion, one called "Lets talk about Sex". That was interesting. We ended the conference with a dinner out at a mexican restaurant. We sat with some new people that we hadn't had the chance to talk to. It was so much fun getting to know different people. I am sure that I will run into them again. I am now addicted to these conferences. If you get a chance to attend or just go to the book signings that accompany these events just do it. You will have a BALL!!!!
