Home from Romanticon and posting some pics!

I went to Romanticon! I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had so I'm posting a few pictures. My husband has most of them and didn't have time to send them to me yet so I do have more but here are a few I could get to and two are from friends who were nice enough to share photos. Notice those cavemen? HARD not to, right? They are the nicest bunch of men. They really went out of their way to make everyone have a great time so shirts off to them! I mean...hats...yeah...hats. LOL. I figured that's the photo you wanted to see most...the guys. LOL. Ellorascave put on an AMAZING weekend. They really went above and beyond with the parties, the events, the workshops, and everyone was just so darn sweet and friendly. I can't talk up Romanticon enough and do it justice. It was THAT GREAT!!! I'm going next year. There's not even a question about it. LOL. If you're able...I HIGHLY recommend going. You won't regret it. It's a priceless weekend of memories. The hotel staff, EC, the cavemen, all the authors, and readers... anyone there...seemed to be having as much fun as Mr. Laurann and I did. I didn't hear one complaint except no Starbucks in the hotel so coffee was a slight issue. LOL. Some people ( HI VALERIE!!!! THANK YOU!!! Mr. Laurann has your photos on his camera) were absolutely WONDERFUL and made coffee runs for us ice coffee addicts. Here's some photos. I made new friends, finally got to hug V.J Devereaux which I have wanted to do for a LONG time, and of course spending so much time with Mr. Laurann was a great thing. I got to meet some of my favorite authors, talk to them, and meet some friends too that I've made online. Here's 2 of my new friends ( Kathy and Jenny), me getting ready in the room for the Roaring 20's party, and of course...Mr. Laurann and I together.

And last but not least... I won an award! It's kind of a funny story. I never expected to win one. They were calling them out and I was clapping, thrilled that so many people I admire and adore were getting them, having Mr. Laurann rush to go video V.J getting hers because her husband wasn't able to make it ( I'm sending you that video file probably tonight, V) and then they called out my name. Have you ever been so shocked your entire body goes limp? I almost slid right out of my chair and had to grab the table to keep me from doing exactly that. LOL. I even thought I may have heard wrong but then everyone at the table was grinning at me and waving me to stand up. I was so nervous one of the Cavemen held my hand. LOL! I took a picture of it and the trophy. Another funny story but I had taken 3 plastic contains in my suitcase and when I arrived at the hotel to unpack...2 of the bottoms of the containers were smashed apart so I carried my trophy home IN my purse, guarding it with my life against it ending up like those containers. It's safely on my desk now. Here's a picture of it. It was a fantastic trip, I had a blast with Mr. Laurann, but that was just the icing on the cake. Thank you to everyone at EC and to everyone who reads my books!!! I wrote and thanked my editors too! LOL. Mr Laurann was nice enough even to ask Caveman Angelo to sign a copy of Burning Up Flint for me since he's on the cover and he did! VERY COOL!

On October 22nd... Berrr's Vow is coming out! That's a week from this Friday!

Book Four in the Zorn Warriors series.

Kidnapped from Earth and transported to the planet of Zorn to be sold as a sex slave, Shanna is one angry, frightened woman who is ready to fight anyone who tries to touch her. Raised in foster care, she’s not going to take any crap off some alien men no matter how big, terrifying, or muscular they are. Before being sold she’s freed by a huge, sexy Zorn warrior who has the most beautiful blue eyes she’s ever seen. Shanna demands he take her under his protection when she realizes she’s stuck on Zorn.
Hyvin Berrr, the leader of Zorn, thinks humans are helpless and weak. Shanna decides to teach the big hunk he’s wrong by knocking him on his large backside. He might think she’s playing with him but she’s trying to teach him a lesson. She’s not sure if she wants to fight the feelings the sexy alien instills in her, but if a woman has to lose a battle, this just might be the one time to concede.
