At the RAGT

This past weekend I was lucky enough to take part in The Annual Lori Foster Reader Author Get Together. Originally I had planned on just going as a Reader. When I found out I had the opportunity to sit down and pitch my book to an editor I took it. I ended up pitching my book to three different editors and they all wanted me to send something their way.
The first night of the event was work for me - work I love with my whole heart- but still work.
It was day two that I got to let my inner romance novel geek out and take it for a walk. My first stop was to see Jill Shalvis. If you haven't read her. I recommend that you start now. She's phenominal and garaunteed to just keep getting more popular.

Meeting with Lori Wilde was such a pleasure. She was so sweet and so funny and the two of us really hit it off. I have read Lori's Once Smitten Twice Shy so much that it has started to fall apart from being so well loved.

Carly was a pleasure to meet. Everyone was so great and down to Earth.  

Brenda Jackson is not only a wonderful author (check out her book Solid Soul) but listening to her talk about some of the things she has done since being published I've found that she is such an inspiration.
 And lastly one of the greatest parts of the event was leaving with more friends than you came in with. Some of them are aspiring writers just like me and some of them are the ever-important readers, but we were all there because we all have at least one thing in common - books!  
It was so great to meet all of these ladies. I can't wait to go back next year - and hopefully by then I'll be walking around with the word Author hanging around my neck :)
