Finally from RT

I finally am loading up pictures from RT. Here goes:  roxie and me


<—-This is me with Rachel Caine at the Random Penguin Party. There’s a number of pictures from the party.


melanie and me






This is Melanie Fletcher from said party. —>





patti and me










<—-This is the least blurry picture of Patty Briggs and I. We took several but apparently we’re always moving.








<—-This is the lovely Charlaine Harris. She is amazing, everyone. Kind, nice, sweet, generous, and just a little bit snarky. Very cool woman.





samantha and jeanne





These are Samantha Sommersby and Jeanne Stein, who write lovely things apart and together chloe and jeannette and meare SJ Harper. —–>







<———–That’s Chloe Neil, Me, and J. Kathleen Cheney at the party before the crowd hits.








These two hooligans are Ilona and Gordon Andrews. We were eating breakfast and got a table in the quiet back room. Until of course it filled up with people. It pays to be slightly early for breakfast at a con.

pooks me carole and snape














This is Me, Patricia Burroughs, Severus Snape, Mad Tea Partyand Carole Nelson Douglas after a panel. No, we aren’t troublemakers, why do you ask? ——–>











<——–Then we have the Mad Hatter Tea Party and sorry, I took some blurry pictures. Some really great Nicole and me signingwriters in there, and unfortunately, I can’t remember all their names. Obviously my roomie J. Kathleen Cheney is down there second to the last on the right.







<———This is me and Nicole Peeler at the mass signing. All those people behind us? writers. There were at least 400 writers there. Amazing. And Nicole had the best dress of all.









Speaking of the signing, here are two pictures to give you a sense of scope:

















Now I have to get to the river of pee. You thought I’d forgotten, didn’t you? So all the floors in the hotel had this particular carpet pattern. Now you tell me–river of pee? Or something else?

pee1pee2RT was nothing but fun. I had a great time and I suck at recapping, so I’ll just say that this was truly a comicon for readers. I love it.pee3

      Right? Why would you ever install that? I mean, that’s the first and ONLY thing that came to my mind when I saw it.

    I love to see so many talented women writers together. But I have to say that the river pee looks pretty viscous. I mean, River of Pee is pretty bad, but River of Thick Pee might just be worse

      River of Thick Pee. Oh my. That’s so right. And wrong. So wrong.

    Almost 400 writers wow! Sounds like it was a lot of fun. I’m glad you enjoyed it. The carpet looks like a river of pee in some parts and in others stuck me as fire!
