My Take on RomantiCon 2011
Oh hush I know I'm late with this, but I was sick. Desiree Holt gave me the monkey pox! And as I've just crawled off my deathbed quite the whining, my head already hurts :)
NO, I didn't go to another BDSM club. I'm probably banned for life as it is.
The first friendly face I see when I walk into baggage claim? The sexy & funny Eve Savage! Damn did she look good. Hated her a little, in a good way, at the moment. We squeal, hug and started the very staid business people at CAK. Grab my luggage & we're on the road in her very smooth rental Dodge Charger. Of course my luggage took up the entire trunk & poor Eve was forced to shove hers in the back seat. That's the show of a good & loyal friend!
We swung by the hotel to pick up Nic Austin then went to grab lunch before the crazy started. Had a wonderful lunch with my girls. We paid, made our way out the door when a crazy ninja with amazing taste in clothes and outstanding hair, grabs my arm and starts talking a mile a minute. My first impression? "Why do all the crazy people find me?" Turns out it's Elece, my lovely and dangerous royal assassin and with her as her fearless companion Lady Lick and Snip ie Cassandra. I'd been ambushed by the best and most insane of my ladies. Should I have feared the rest of the conference? Hell yes, but in my naive stupidly I remained blissfully unaware.
Get to the hotel, we won't go into my check-in process. When did they let demons check people in? Huh, anyway room was okay and it adjoined Nic's so I did my happy dance & went to the bar!
The next few hours are blurry & I blame Eve. Well, Eve Savage & Patty Marks. Patti kept encouraging me to "go, get more wine. Drink it down!." Sneaky woman!! But the EC labeled wine was YUMMY!! Didn't get to try the root beer, but there's always next year, right?
Friday I was workshop girl & I had a blast. We did 31 Flavors of Sex or what I like to now call What gets your groove on? Ladies, you made it one of the best workshops in the conference. It had to be considering Raelene sent someone in to keep us quiet. That never happens I mean look at her workshops. She's no innocent miss.
Saturday...ummm I'll take the 5th & blame Elece and her delicious case of chocolate wine. I drank it down in an amazing glass with Princess on it and some pretty glitters and sparkly stuff. I love my RHB gals. They understand the Shiny Kingdom and our motto of more is better!!
Spending time with Reginia is always a happy time because she keeps me laughing. Smart, funny and blond the woman is a deadly combo!
Even the parties each night seemed to get better and better. Not to mention the very hot & very sexy Cavemen. They made each night more fun than the last with their smooth moves on the dance floor and their even smoother glib tongues off the dance floor. Smooth talkers each and every one of them.
Can I say this is my favorite conference again? Here it's all about the readers & I love it because hey I'm a reader too!! And that makes RomantiCon all about ME!! Every day there were new fun surprises , gifts & give-aways. Smiling women everywhere I looked except when I blocked their view of the Cavemen. Then the hussies got mean!!
Spending time with Elece, Margie, Jordan, and Cass was a hair raising ride through insanity. Thanks, ladies, & when can we do it again?
It's official now. No more will I attend writer's conferences. I'm all about the readers!! They have more fun, better prizes, & hotter men. Yummy! So you won't see me anywhere, but RT, RomantiCon & possibly the reader thing in Dallas. Anyone else want to recommend one for me? One you love going to? Spill it, talk to me & share the love!
Until next week,
