Just got back last night from a family vacation–Mr. James got a short “furlough” from the Big Case he’s working on and we decided to treat the Little Guy to some fun. Any guesses where we went? Here’s a hint:
Ah, Disney World with a three year-old. . . there’s no experience quite like it. Yes, the Little Guy had his moments–what three year-old doesn’t?–but we had a fantastic time. Although I would like to have a word with the Disney “imagineers” about one thing–do we really need a gift shop stocked with TOYS after every ride?? Help a parent out here, guys. : )
Later this week, I’m off to Denver for RomCon. For those of you attending the conference, I thought I’d post the schedule of places you can find me:
Saturday, July 10th: 12 PM Book Fair–Open to the Public
Saturday, July 10th: 2:30 PM Mix and Mingle with Contemporary Romance Authors, including Autumn Piper, Catherine Anderson, Cathy Maxwell, Deb Werksman, Elizabeth Hoyt, Jeanne C. Stein, Jodi Thomas, Julie James, Lori Wilde, Meg Benjamin, Susan Crandall, Susan Donovan & Leanne Banks
Saturday, July 10th: 3:30 PM The Perfect Heroine: What makes a heroine a woman you can identify with? Do you prefer them to be perfect, slender, gorgeous, and supremely self-confident? Or do you prefer them to have some flaws and feel self-conscious in some situations. Sexually active or more discerning? Financially successful or struggling in an ordinary job to make ends meet? Sexy underwear or plain? What types of heroines appeal to you? Come share your thoughts with Catherine Anderson, Cathy Maxwell, J L Wilson, Julie James, Sally MacKenzie, Susan Donovan.
Sunday, July 11th: 9 AM Speed Date a New Author–Session 3 Have a flash visit with your favorite authors or new-to-you authors and decide for yourself if you’d like to check out their books. Some of the authors participating are Amanda McCabe, Cindi Myers, Deeanne Gist, Jeaniene Frost, Julie James, Karen Jones, Lavinia Kent, Lori Foster, Meagan Hatfield, Melissa Mayhue, Sally MacKenzie, Tara Janzen, and Terri Garey.
Of course, I’ll be around throughout the conference, attending panels/workshops, the awards ceremony (psst–Practice Makes Perfect was nominated for Best Contemporary) and other events, but those are the places you can find me for sure.
Hope to see some of you there!
