RWA 2007 and other stuff!
So-I got home from the Romance Writers of America conference last night and I'm a total wreck. The usual post-conference blues. Symptoms include exhaustion, an inability to think, an inability to talk about anything other than the conference to anyone who will listen (or even those who really, really don't want to-my poor boyfriend!), and a bad case of post-conference depression. I miss everyone! I think I'm going through withdrawal.
Meanwhile, life has gone on here without me, so I'm doing tons of laundry, trying to unpack and get organized, and I have to write a book, which is now sadly behind schedule. *sigh*
I'm also preparing for an interview on Sirius Radio on the Playboy channel's Night Calls with porn superstars Ginger Lynn and Christy Canyon! The show will air live this Wednesday at 4:30 PM PST/7:30 PM EST. You're welcome to call in and ask questions-and anything goes on this show! You can call in here: (877) 205-9796. Please call in. Please. I'm afraid either no one will call because no one wants to talk to me, or it'll be a bunch of pervs who ask me weird questions. Oh wait, that'll probably be my friends. Yeah...
Okay-back to the conference (sorry-I'm a bit scattered). We had a great time. A bunch of us from Romance Divas, plus a few other conference-goers took a Hummer limousine Tuesday night to Illusions, a drag karaoke bar. Had a blast, but I can't say any more than that. What happens in Dallas stays in Dallas. Until the pics are posted all over the Internet, anyway. *G*
Lots of mingling and networking, and on Sunday morning I had my pic taken with Nora Roberts, but I can't remember who took it, so it may be a few days before I track it down. I did two book signings for my debut novel, THE DARK GARDEN: the Literacy Signing, which was fun, and I sold out of my books (yay!!! because I really was afraid I'd sit there all by myself twiddling my thumbs while everyone ran to get books from other authors), and the Bantam signing on Saturday. That was a truly amazing experience! I signed 150 books, and my hand was a throbbing (and not in the good way) claw by the time I was done. But I could not believe that people who don't even know me would wait in line to get my book! Thanks in large part, I think, to the gorgeous matted blowup of my 2nd Bantam cover, (THE DARKER SIDE OF PLEASURE, out October 25th) which is so beautiful and draws a lot of attention, so a big thanks to whoever at Bantam did that for me! And a huge thank you to RG Alexander and her dh, The Cookie (and OMG-did any of you smell him the other night?? I think I may have a crush), for carrying all my promo stuff in for me, and an even bigger thanks to my darling Crystal Jordan for being my booksigning bitch and slapping 'autographed copy' stickers on all the books, keeping my table stocked with books and my business cards at hand!
BTW-Crystal has an offer on the table which I think has not yet been officially announced-she got the call while at conference, which was awesome! So in between celebrating the rest of us were on a mission to introduce her to agents. I think she ended up with six. Should be some big news for her soon! I'm so damn proud of her-I knew you could do it, Crys!
What other trouble did we get into? On Tuesday a bunch of us went to Deep Ellum, the funky part of Dallas, and got Crystal a tattoo and got Mel's nose pierced, then we went to lunch at the Angry Dog. After lunch everyone went back to the hotel except for myself and the fabulous Lillian Feisty, my dear friend and fellow smut peddlar. We went shopping! I found this cool, funky jacket before we got too hot and tired and went back to the hotel to rest. Well, we were supposed to rest, but I'm pretty sure Feisty went to the bar.
A good time was had by all. I met so many people, and got to know others I'd only met briefly before. Loved seeing Stephanie Tyler and Larissa Ione, my Bantam anthology mates who also write together as Sydney Croft (no release date yet on that book, but stay posted!), the always fabulous Sunny, Jina Bacarr, Jaci Burton, who is such a doll, the amazing Pam Rosenthal, who I admit I gushed embarrassingly over a bit, and ohmygosh, I know I'm leaving tons of people out!
Sorry for the disjointed babbling-pics later after I get my brain working again.
Okay-going to shut up now and go take a nap.
Eden :)
