RT Booklovers Convention

As you may know I was at the RT Booklovers Convention last week. I had a great time! I met new author friends and new reader friends and new blogger friends. I participated in an awesome reader panel about LGBTQ romance. My Nine Naughty Novelists and I also did a panel discussion about group blogs/writing groups, sharing what we've learned over the last five years together. And I attended the Giant Book Fair - it was crazy but I was so happy to meet readers and even sell some books!

After the convention I stayed an extra couple of days with author friends Erin Nicholas and Jennifer Bernard (aka Juniper Bell) and we had some fun touring around. Here are some pics of my week:


On the swamp tour - I actually held an alligator! Okay, a baby, but still...

Big gator...
Our guide was a crazy Cajun - he dove into the water and wrestled with the gators...

The bayou was exactly how I pictured it from the many romances I've read set there.
Another bayou pic...
