One of the most fun things about the conference are the publishers’ parties. I went to the Pocket party which was absolutely wonderful. Intimate dining at a top notch restaurant. Wonderful discussion around a table of ten. The publicity people made these beautiful name badges which looked like miniature versions of our books. It was awesome.
Then there was the Harlequin party! Hundreds of authors and industry professionals. Harlequin started the night by presenting awards for authors who had done 25 books for them and another author who had done 75 books for them. WOW! 75 books!!!
The DJ did an awesome job and at one point, there was a conga line that had virtually everyone in the ballroom on the line. It was a blast and here’s a clip of that infamous conga line courtesy of cuppacafe.com! It may not seem like a lot of fun, but it was. If you look closely around minute 6:45 or so, you can see me on the line followed by my editor Stacy Boyd.
Of course, if you skip to the end, you can catch us really getting down to the conga along with my friend and fellow author, Lisa Renee Jones. Now, please be kind about my dancing as I am a Cuban who was born without rhythm in her hips. VBG
Did you know these facts about the Conga?
Here’s another picture from the conference of me with fellow author and friend Pat White, who writes for Nocturne and Harlequin Intrigue!
