Moonlight and Magnolias Back to Blog

I love the city of Atlanta. Love it–hey, I’ve set three books and a novella there, I have to be a fan of the city! So, in addition to attending the Moonlight and & Magnolias conference this weekend, I did take the time to tour around the city with my husband and son.

Actually, as we were heading into the city, I noticed that Nick had sat up really straight in his seat and his gaze started to sweep over all the buildings. Curious, I asked, “What are you doing?”

His answer. “Trying to find out where Paradise Found is.”

I just shook my head. The man is sweet, though–he reads all my books, and he really was trying to figure out where I’d located Niol’s club. Cute.

But…on to the conference!

I had the pleasure of meeting lots of great folks in Atlanta. Everyone at the conference was excited about romance and that is such a good thing.

On Friday evening, I met Kimberly Killion–she writes historicals for Kensington. Of course, I had to buy her book, HER ONE DESIRE, at the book signing. I’d heard too many good things about that book. No way could I pass it up!

And here’s a pic of me and Kimberly, right before the book signing kicked off:

I also was lucky enough to meet the “Cata” ladies in person. Ally and Donna of Cata Romance (and eCata, and Single Titles, and Sensual–the Cata Network has expanded so wonderfully well!) stopped by the book signing on Saturday.

Those ladies just made me smile.

And, thank you, Victoria, for my knitting lesson!  :-)

I’ve got to say, getting the chance to meet writers and romance readers–my favorite part of conferences.

My next big event will be the 2009 RT Convention in Orlando. REALLY looking forward to that one! Anyone else planning to be at RT?

    I wish I could be at RT, but don’t think I’ll be able to swing it. Marcia Collette raved about the M&M conference, too. Then I heard from Margie Lawson this morning. Margie has fun wherever she goes. lol Maybe next year I’ll get there.

    You know…

    I REALLY want to go to RT. My mom and I are huge Disney fans. That’s where we usually go for our mother-daughter trips. Add the price of RT and a companion ticket on top of that and I’m just not seeing it happen. :(

    Who knows what the future holds. If it’s in the cards for me to be there, then you bet I’m coming.

    I won’t be at RT next year, though I wish I was able to attend. And if I wasn’t terrified at being around that many people! *G*

    How sweet about the night club! *G*

    I hope you’re having a fabulous day!
