Howdy! It’s storming like crazy here in Savannah, which is perfect for the vampire ball tonight! So far, this has been a wonderful conference. The vampire and witch panels were a lot of fun, and the ‘tying up loose ends’ with Kate Douglas was hilarious. Kate is always funny. Here’s a picture with MaryJanice Davidson from our vampire panel. Yeah, I had a bit of a fan girl moment there. 🙂
A few of us managed to get away from the conference hotel last night for dinner, and here’s a picture of Lynn Rush/Reese Monroe and Kendall Grey at dinner. We were heading back for the Bookie Awards and got caught in a deluge—I ended up soaking wet and with crazy hair. I mean, crazy, crazy, hair. Sue Brown from GraveTells stopped on the way (Sue’s the smart one) and bought an umbrella. I was running too fast to snap her picture, but here’s a pic of Sue with a Caribbean Marg. Looks good, right?
Hey – guess what? TWISTED won a bookie award for best novella/short story. I gave a quick thank you speech and have no clue what I said. I wasn’t expecting to win and hadn’t prepared…plus I was a little nervous being in front of all those people at a podium. It’s a lot easier to be on a panel.
Other than that, I’ve hung out with the magnificent Justine from Kensington, and we truly enjoyed the grilled cheese sandwich from Blue, here in the hotel. Also, here’s a quick picture of opening day…see what was on the table. 🙂
