I finally was able to make it here! Tamara and I have been planning this trip for over a year so we are totally excited! Yesterday was the informal meet and greet for those of us that made it. We were going as readers but both of us had books published before the sign up so we thought “What the Hell!” authors it is!
Too cool, right? LOL!
Here is the menu for last night’s “Meet and Greet”
Menu: Build Your Own Slider Bar
•Mini Burgers & Buns
•Cheeses: Provolone Cheese, Cheddar Cheese, Swiss Cheese
•Assorted Toppings: Pickles, Onions, Jalapenos, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Bacon Crumbles, Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise, BBQ Sauce
•Sweet Potato Fries, French Fries, Saratoga Chips
•Cookies and brownies, Iced Tea and Coffee
Yum! The Sweet Potato Fries were soooo good.
From an experienced convention goer (me!) that is pretty much standard fair for a first night :D. With one exception – all the awesome toppings! I’m used to ketchup mustard and maybe a packet of mayonnaise!
If you want to see what is in store for us this weekend take a look! http://lorifoster.com/connect-with-lori-online/readerauthor-get-together/
So tonight went really well! We met Lori Foster, Desiree Holt, and Cat Johnson! And a slew of wonderful authors! Here are some pics from today!
Cat Johnson-be sure you see her interview coming on June 16-is around somewhere!
These five are pictures of a game-Match the pet to the author! The two top winners got ALL the answers correct! Go Stalkers! oops! REMEMBER STALKING IS BAD!
Later on this morning we will be helping to stuff goody bags! Tamara has a bit more to do as she is an editor and a writer for Secret Cravings Publishing who are here too. As I don’t write for them it is all secret stuff! NOT! I’m just not involved since I am not one of theirs. But who can tell the future, right?
Well, after a fun time with all of the above authors, readers and a hilarious time outside discussing sex and books (did you expect anything else?) with Tamara, Bridgett, Janet, Cynthia and that nice man who we kept in stitches (he was here for work). I’m now ready to go to bed!
