F.U.N. at R.A.G.T.
many of you are probably aware from the many Facebook posts, I attended Lori
Foster’s Reader and Author Get Together (RAGT) in Ohio over the weekend. It was my
first experience at this particular convention, as well as my first experience
of really being able to participate as an author. I have Darynda Jones to thank
of Darynda Jones . . . She was my bunk mate. Bless her. Not entirely sure she
will ever agree to do so again. I’m kidding. She’s an amazing woman, and I’m
very lucky to be able to call her my friend. Just look at how she represented Team
CLP!!! She made me look good, but then again, my T-shirt made her look
pretty damn spectacular in this pic as well. LOL! Right behind her is the bed
where we “slept” with each other. *waggles brows* If those walls could talk . .
. they might have whispered words of condolence to the incomparable Mrs. Jones. *snort*
Darynda wasn’t the only one representing Team CLP at the convention. Check out
these gorgeous hotties!!! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. That’s Gayle Donnelly and Robyn Mackenzie (authors of the Blood Feud series) on either side of Darynda Jones, and on the end, is the admin of my Parker’s Pimpin’ Posse street team and owner of Jitterbug PR, Alicia Justice.
So fabulous in fact, that she ended up handcuffed to cover model extraordinaire, Billy Freda!! The poor dear . . .
*disclaimer* Blame Patricia Dechant for the blurry photos. My bestie cannot take a clear pic to save her life. This was a theme. I kid you not.
Obviously, I was afraid for Britta, and being the amazing friend I am, I had to help get her out of those handcuffs. Otherwise, how would I get in them? You see the type of sacrifice I’m willing to make for my friends?
I’m sworn to secrecy on the topic of Britta’s expression in this pic, but LOOK at how determined I am to set her free. My devotion knows no bounds. True story.
They were plastic cuffs for chrissakes and NOTHING was working. I was understandably worried that Britta might be handcuffed to a gorgeous cover model for the rest of her life (read: I might never be handcuffed to a gorgeous cover model for the rest of my life).
However, THIS love affair will last a thousand lifetimes. Ladies and gents, let me introduce you to Robyn Peterman, author of How Hard Can It Be? and Pirate Dave’s hot little mama. Go to that link and check her out. This lady is the total package, and I wanted to stick her in my pocket and steal her away. She wouldn’t have complained. As you can tell by the pic below, she couldn’t keep her hands off me. It was quite embarrassing how badly she wanted my body. Accosted me and all . . . (pay no attention to the Michelin man that found his way around my waist – apparently, I’m irresistible).
But the absolute BEST time I had was when this gal was on the scene. Jowanna Delong Kestner, admin of Pimpin’ Reads and the designer of my website. Jo couldn’t say ANYTHING without causing me to double over in side-splitting laughter. I love her! I love her! I love her! And she represented, too . . .
