so i attended my first rwa conference in new york city. it was crazy and enlightening and all kinds of cool. i attended workshops by liliana hart, jude deveraux, susan elizabeth philips, d. c. stone, jayne anne krentz, and more. i learned a lot about the craft and the business, but i think my fav part is captured in the pics below, where i totally got my fan girl on.
i have loved reading this woman’s books for longer than i can remember and, though i never thought of myself as the kind of person who would get all starry eyed in the presence of celebrity, i have to admit that i stuttered and gushed and made a complete dork of myself in front of her. and then i forgot to get my pic with her…twice. it was the last day i was there that i finally managed to have a normal conversation with her and get the pic. in case you couldn’t tell, that’s jayne anne krentz (aka amanda quick, aka jayne castle).
