Lori Foster Reader-Author Get Together - Day 2

Posted by Ann Roberts at 6:08 AM

OMG!! Look what I had to wake up to!!! That's Rhonda (SandDanz) on the left and Laura (CTGMom) on the right. She seems to think that I shouldn't be taking her picture. Pffftttttttt! Wait until I start taking photos of her drinking and dancing tonight....

I WON!!!
Not once...but twice. The money raised from the raffle items is going to CONDUCTIVE LEARNING CENTER of Greater Cincinnati, a local school specializing in education for children with spina bifida and cerebral palsy. So, of course, I had to buy lots of tickets. I won, not one, but two bags of books and stuff from Cait London. Oops! I won a third time. I really great basket from Toni Blake. Boy was someone pissed!!

Hey...Laura won two awesome baskets!!

However, I didn't win one of the e-readers...and now that I've held one...I have to have one. Bad Laura!

While Rhonda and Laura were running around making authors sign everything that they owned. I was people watching and talking. I met lots of wonderful people!! One of them was Barbara Vey who writes the Beyond Her Book Blog for Publishers Weekly. In addition, I had a rip-roaring good time with Annette "Ann" Beets Nikki (I'm sorry I don't know your last name). We sat together at lunch then invited ourselves to dinner. If her books are anything like her SENSE OF HUMOR, these have to be GREAT books. Good luck to both of you with your writing!

Laura, Rhonda, Ann B, Nikki and I had dinner at El Coyote. They have GREAT margaritas! And I'm actually writing this the next morning so it isn't the two pitchers that I shared with Ann B talking. We were supposed to go line dancing but apparently there was no where to go. So we headed back to the Hotel Bar which was full of authors. What happens when you put a bunch of Romance Authors and Readers in a hotel bar? Chaos....lots of laughter...and singing!

Romance writers have a wicked sense of humor...other photos from the Get Together!

You don't want to get between a reader and those books during the Book Exchange!!

One final note. While the people attending these events are readers...not much reading gets done. I probably read 50 pages all weekend! I was too busy socializing!
