And on arriving at the convention I received the squeeeee news that Bound Odyssey had received a four star review from the Romantic Times Book Reviews magazine. Yay!!! Okay, blatant self-promotion finished.
Now, for inquiring minds. The above picture features our table mascot at the Intergalactic Bar & Grill party hosted by a group of sci-fi writers. We affectionately called our mascot Long Duck Dong. He had four eyes and three penises. And really, what more do you expect of a bunch of out of control female romance readers and writers hell bent on having a good time? I believe we received the mascot as a prize for answering an important trivia question at the event. Which animal, proportionate to its body size, has the largest penis? A dog, a duck or a giraffe? The answer is duck. Hence, Long Duck Dong.
Here's the fantastic author Jade Lee, one of the event hostesses, holding the little tyke.
And finally, me all dressed up for the Vampire Ball in my corset, black velvet skirt and black boots. Sorry the picture is a bit dark, but it lends to my air of mystery, don't you think? I have the lovely Dalton Diaz to thank for taking this photo. She helped me celebrate big time this week since she was a pro at RT conventions, attending past years.
I had a fantastic time and hung around with so many talented, lovely authors. My roomies included Samantha Cayto, Frances Stockton and Ella Drake. Special waves go to M.A. Ellis.
The best part of convention was seeing all of the authors I've met on-line and putting faces to names. That and the dancing. Can't forget the dancing. I only wish more of the Naughty Author Chicks had been able to attend this year, although I and Dalton tried to represent the crowd valiantly.So what photos do you prefer seeing from authors when they come back from conventions? Any? Do they put you to sleep? Were you asleep right this minute in fact? No, the photo of the bare chested male models woke you up I'm sure. I'll take suggestions for my photojournalism efforts for the next time I go to convention.
