I don't know who came up with the idea for hundreds of romance fans to congregate in a hotel with hundreds of romance authors, but I really must thank them.
I could say I've talked to readers and booksellers and librarians and publishers and agents and that I have vastly advanced my knowledge of marketing, writing, and the newly emerging genres. I could say that and it would be true.
But, sadly for my character, the real truth is that I've been HANGIN' WITH THE B*TCHES!
Sarah--who is the the SNARKIEST woman on the earth!
Jane--who camouflages her hilariously dirty mind behind the classiest facade :)
Lorraine--ballsy librarian/opera singer!
Veronika--beautiful woman of many accomplishments!
Cass and Dani--(because they always come in a set) who introduced me to the concepts of the Buttery Nipple and garlic fries!
Miriam--who found the greatest steampunk bar in LA!
H.P.--brains and beauty!
Jennie--with the immortal ass!
Boyd--Okay, Boyd is not a girl, but for the purposes of this blog, we nominate him as an honorary "B*tch"!
And always, my buds, Susan D and Darbi, who make everything ten times funnier than it really is!
I am breathless with laughing, drinking, laughing some more. Thanks, gang!
