Ready for BEA!!! Nice Surprise in Store…

Hi Everyone.  Since my last event, the RT Booklover Convention in Los Angeles, I was asked by a few of you whether I’ll be at BEA.

That’s the big question since I have a new book releasing just that day and in something unrelated, may be needed in Los Angeles for a production meeting that week.  So, it’s still in the air.

BUT whether or not I’m there, there will be a presence or two to represent me.   It will be a nice surprise 😀

RT (Romantic Times) Booklover Convention Book Signing and Pictures

Posters of Desire and Beautiful Beings at the Romantic Times Booklover Convention 2011 were right next to Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires Posters.

The Romantic Times Booklover Convention was a week long convention of meeting some of the romance publishing industry’s top authors, publishers, agents, and even models.

The convention’s highlight for me was definitely the meeting of peer authors and readers.

Here’s me with the sweet and fabulous Ally Carter, author of the Heist Society and  Gallagher Girls.  This picture was taken by the witty and glamorous Holly Black, author of Spiderwick Chronicles, Tithe, The Cursed Workers series, and more.  These fabulous ladies were so much fun! Thank you Holly for taking this photo.

Book Signing

Signing Cecilia’s Autograph Book.  So happy to finally meet up with Fans who have become friends, too.

It was an amazing group. Kerrelyn Sparks sat at a table behind me, Kensington books (publishers of Richelle Mead’s Succubus series and more) authors sat next to me, and straight in front of me was a row of studly men, the male models who modeled for the covers of those steamy romance novels you see everywhere. They were there for the Mr. Romance contest.  I don’t think any of us authors who had to sit in our row would complain about the view.

The book signing event was wonderful and again the best part was meeting my fans and exchanging hugs, like I said I would!
