Checking in from Romantic Times!

Having a blast here in Houston... Tonight was the kickoff to everything and I met several people who had previously been little more than a name on the internet, including Ally Blue, whose Author threads are just a bit further down the page.

Kally Jo and Melissa hosted a sweet party prior to the Moulin Rouge bash tonight. Went to a couple of panel discussions... and saw my promo stuff just vanish from Promo Lane. Authors, if you are coming to R.T. in the future? Take your most optimistic hopes for how much promo stuff to bring... then times it by five. Wow! My stuff went fast!

I also took advantage of the goodie room and grabbed a bunch of new books to read.

My ego also got fed a little when I walked into Club R.T. for the first time and they directed me to the area where I needed to set up... with the rest of the cover models. *blush* I had to explain I was an author, not a model. I must admit, it felt nice to have that mistake made. It was only reinforced as the day went on. Man, I could get used to that. What guy wouldn't love it?

I'll check in again before I head back to California... *kisses*

Hmm that will either be really good for me or bad so depends what happens when they are all back here or they send pics or other stuff in the coming days and email updates. Guess I will find out more soon. Hope it is all good though for you especially and glad you are having fun Will.

Well, the Fairie Ball was a good time... but it was more of a "we're dressed up, look at us, take a picture!" atmosphere than the previous nights club atmosphere. While I did enjoy the attention and the time on the dance floor, especially with certain dark & dusky tall faieries and "fiesty" fellow authors, I definitely felt the Moulin Rouge party was wilder.

I met a lot more people on day two, including the owners of AllRomanceEBooks. I was suprised and pleased to find out one of them was from my hometown... It will be nice to have that contact to talk with and possibly see at local events.

Lots to see and do today as I look forward to the book fair on Saturday!

Had the bookfair today... What a madhouse! I sold six books, which according to a couple of more traditional print authors that were near me was quite good... there is a lot of "looking down the nose" from some of the people here when it comes to ebooks. For me to have sold six copies while not having print available seems to be a victory to them... since I'm new to this world, I'll take their word for it.

Lots of partying, lots of networking... I've met some wonderful people. We have the Dorchester Immortals party tonight and one of their number is a highlander so it's back into the kilt for me...
