OK--cyberspace lost my post!!! Rats!!!
I'm so glad to be home :D
I had an interesting time in Reno. Met some lovely people, met some people I wasn't very keen on. Saw the ins and outs of a very complex and dynamic industry and witnessed an awful lot of ego. I have to say this wasn't from the top--not the top authors, the superstars like the wonderful Suzanne Brockmann, zany Susan Elisabeth Phillips, energetically enthusiastic Jennifer Crusie, fabulous Linda Howard, lovely Debbie Macomber, the incomparable Nora Roberts--these women were all wonderfully open and encouraging and awe-inspiringly inspiring :)
That surprised me.
I also had the two best roommates in the whole place--we'd been friends on the net, but had never met. I was very lucky to have Loreth (who writes for Silhouette Intimate Moments) and Meretta (who is aspiring, like me) and then there's me--short and dark like a pixie witch.
I'll post more about my experiences through this week, with pictures of my groupie adventures...and maybe confess my reservations about the whole thing too.
What have you been up to????
