RT Sat & Sun--the saga ends...or does it?

Saturday was the day of the big book signing. That I was to be sitting by Lori G. Armstrong at. *G* I had several books to be signed by her.

The day started out with breakfast and I snuck into the ball room where the signing was to peek. There had been doubts at first as to whether I could sign on Sat. So to see my books there was a big relief. I snapped a picture and got escorted out. LOL troublemaker.

Came back when it was time and got settled in my spot. Went to find Megan Hart and Lauren Dane to get get books signed and wound up buying their jointly written book.

Settled next to my neighbors. Adra Steia (who is also Ash Arceneaux) had sat next to me at the ebook expo. And of course there was Lori *G*. I had a lot of fun sitting next to her. We talked about stuff and she signed a bunch of books for me. I bought two of her Lorelei James' titles. Mary Stella came by and snapped a picture of both of us.

I met so many people at the booksigning. I promised promo to some and promised to look into signed bookplates for someone (I'm working on it! I swear!). Had a lot of neat things happen, including selling out of both Dinah's Dark Desire and Settler's Mine 1: The Rivals and only having one copy left of Secrets of Seduction II.

The signing was awesome. There's no other word for it.

Afterward, Mari and Melissa and I went to find something to eat. We came back for the Mr. Romance Competition which was cute. Then readied ourselves for the Dorchester party. Sam *sniffle* had to fly out so she left us.

Went to Dorchest and hung out for a while, then retired to the bar.

Melissa had to be up at *sigh* 3:50 AM to catch a 4:30 shuttle to the airport. So Saturday turned into Sunday very quickly.

Mari and I hung out most of Sunday together at the hotel and then at the airport.

I'm a little sad that RT is over because I did have such a great time. I met so many people and enjoyed myself. I had a great time hanging out with friends, both old and new.

Now, I have so much to do! LOL. I have some things that cropped up from RT and I also have a deadline of July 1st.

May the muses have busy times
