RWA Day 1

It's been a very messy day with signing clothes (red kimono and cream colored silk shirt with chinese frog closures somewhat like Keepers of the Flame) left in a friend's closet so signed in a purple embroidered blouse I wear a lot and the brown trousers...things completely misplaced, my credit card stopped since I don't use it much and it was suspected it was stolen, I had to verify ten different things and all my purchases.

And wonderful: I met Kristin Ramsdell (hope I'm not brain dead on this and I spelled her name right), who named Heart Thief as one of the top 5 romances of 2003 and JUST gave me a STARRED review (of many reviews in the genre, it had a STAR) in Library Journal. Whew.... Someone dropped off a magazine with a german review for Sorceress of Faith which I think is called Sorceress of Lladrana...met up with old friends and new roomie, and editor who has read a lot of Echoes In The Dark and has some specific questions (sigh) and a bookseller who said she thought Echoes In The Dark was coming out in March...so it might have been put back without telling me yet. Had a shot but pithy talk with Mary Jo Putney, and passing talk with Chris Feehan. (Yeah, name dropping here), and met Linnea Sinclair and set up a dinner date with her, and so on and so forth.

I'm tired and my feet hurt and I realized when unpacking that though my suitcase is full of clothes, they don't seem to be the right ones...

Well, the party is continuing, so I may wander over to see the Squires.

May you enjoy your friends today.

Thank you. The ladies at LJ actually came over to me and told me of, then showed me the review.
