I know that everyone has already done their recap of the awesomness that is the RT Convention.
You guys, it was SO much fun. So. Much. Fun.
And I was completely exhausted afterward. My flight home was delayed (waah) and I missed my connection. Then I got home and immediately slipped into mommy mode because my munchkin graduated kindergarten. Myyyy baaaabbbyyyy is growing up too fast!
But you want to hear about all he fabulous things at RT, so prepare yourself for pictures. I feel like I didn't take enough last year, so worked to make up for it this year.
These are from my panel on Wednesday morning. I was so nervous but I loved having these ladies sitting with me, chatting about the things I loved. I don't think I did too terrible, despite being incredibly nervous.
I also had the privilege of being on a panel with my rock star agent Rebecca Friedman and fantastic publicist KP Simmon of InkslingerPR.
I also had the chance to hang out with some of my favorite people.
(Below is my awesome sister (glasses) and brilliant Elizabeth Hunter.)
The delightful Tammara Webber!
My sister and the gorgeous EL James.
And I *FINALLY* had the chance to see Killian McRae in person.
One of the highlights of the trip? Dinner at Mortons with Tammara Webber, Ruth Clampett, Daisy Prescott, Colleen Hoover, EL James, Colleen Hoover, Murphy Rae, Vilma Gomez, Killian McRae, and my fantastic sister Becki Perkins.(<--- a="" business="" consultation="" for="" is="" p="" starting="" who="" wildlife="" writers="">
Another of my favorite parts of RT is the giant Avon Book signing. Tons and I do mean tons of FREE books.
Before the chaos of the signing!
All the people! I was so happy to see and meet everyone that came to my table.
Oh, and I got to meet MEG FREAKING CABOT!
And yes, we're both wearing tiaras.
The giant RT book fair. Whoa. The amount of people was insane. INSANE.
Oh. And this happened again. Only this time I got to share the moment with my sister.
For those of you that don't know, Tamora Pierce is one of my literary heroes. And I got to see her! She was on a panel before one of mine and I spoke to her. Probably something stupid, if I managed to speak English at all. Then again at the giant book fair I had the chance to grab a picture with her and I don't look like I was crying. (Unlike last years.)
In other words, RT was freaking fantastic. I'm so glad I had the privilege of attending RT while meeting so many readers and friends and making new ones. Such a great trip. And I wouldn't have traded any of it for anything. <3 p="">
If you saw me at RT I'd love to see any pictures you took.
