RomCon Here We Come - Dinner With Friends!

So what do you get when you bring FIVE fabulous women with a love of ALL things books? Besides the risk of being thrown out of a popular restaurant for being rowdy from giggling and talking?  You get an AMAZING two and a half hours of good food and great conversation!

Lacey, Amber Scott, Deena Remiel, Me, M.d Christie

What a way to start my RomCon adventure! When I realized that my BFF Lacey and I were staying over night in "the big city" so we could catch our flight the next day, we just HAD to hook up with three of our FAVORITE author friends - Amber Scott, Deena Remiel and M.d Christie. If you haven't had a chance to read their books, you're forgiven... only if your next stop is to go grab yourself a copy LOL No one writes a more swoony romance filled with sexy angels than these two and yep, I was a little giddy!

We took the local Olive Garden by storm and there was never a quiet moment as we talked and talked and talked about our favorite books and future story ideas. Some of the topics? What else would a group of romance writers chat about then the DELICIOUS men we love - Barrons from the Fever series, Price Ash from the Iron Fey series and my favorite, Dark Hunters. We talked muses and books we love and there was definitely some strong swooning going on! Especially when we started gushing over Jimmy Thomas. Yep, he dominated at least an hour of our dinner. I wonder if his ears were burning?

Tonight was just another reminder of how wonderful the book world is and how there are countless opportunities to develop great friendships with everyone. It was an amazing chance to share our love for writing and reading and  I walked out floating on air, PUMPED! Of course, it had nothing to do with getting to "POKE" my Facebook buddy, Deena in person LOL

Nothing beats a good POKE between friends!

The night unfortunately came to end TOO quickly and I wasn't the only one who felt they could've continued talking into the wee hours of the night. Before we parted ways, I got my FIRST book of the trip.... a print copy of Deena's book Trinity and yep, I drooled! LOVE the way Michael looks.


So next on the itinerary is the airport tomorrow and then we'll be in Denver. Did anyone warn the people that The Bookish Snob and Romance Diva are heading into town? They may want to batten the hatches because it's going to be wicked fun! Either that or a collection for bail money needs to be started...

I'm still riding the wave of awesome fun this morning! Thanks for that, as I am facing a day of long, boring meetings! lol And don't worry my dear swoonatic, I'll bail you out. On second thought, maybe I'll just join you in the slammer myself! Think of the stories we could write! LMAO!
