As promised, I have pictures! First is the incomparable Nora Roberts, keynote speaker at Thursday's luncheon. Overall, she reminded the attendees that first publication is never easy (even for her) and that if you want to get in the pool, stop making excuses and jump in.
Here is what remained of my delicious dessert that first day. I haven't yet braved the scales, but I literally had to squeeze myself into my dress for the GH/RITA awards dinner.
Here is Anne Stuart, who was unique and wonderful, and I feel so fortunate to have attended her workshop (although my drafts are still quite sh**ty).
Finally, here is one of my all-time favorite authors, Teresa Medeiros. She is a fellow Kentuckian and was so generous, allowing me to snap two pictures of her (the first was blurry--maybe I was shaking). She also was sweet enough to give me two books. Love me some Teresa!
I will continue to post more pictures as the week goes on.
