I don’t know who came up with the idea for hundreds of romance fans to congregate in a hotel with hundreds of romance authors, but I really must thank them.

I could say I’ve talked to readers and booksellers and librarians and publishers and agents and that I have vastly advanced my knowledge of marketing, writing, and the newly emerging genres. I could say that and it would be true.

But, sadly for my character, the real truth is that I’ve been HANGIN’ WITH THE B*TCHES!

Sarah–who is the the SNARKIEST woman on the earth!

Jane–who camouflages her hilariously dirty mind behind the classiest facade 🙂

Lorraine–ballsy librarian/opera singer!

Veronika–beautiful woman of many accomplishments!

Cass and Dani–(because they always come in a set) who introduced me to the concepts of the Buttery Nipple and garlic fries!

Miriam–who found the greatest steampunk bar in LA!

H.P.–brains and beauty!

Jennie–with the immortal ass!

Boyd–Okay, Boyd is not a girl, but for the purposes of this blog, we nominate him as an honorary “B*tch”!

And always, my buds, Susan D and Darbi, who make everything ten times funnier than it really is!

I am breathless with laughing, drinking, laughing some more. Thanks, gang!
