RWA 2013: Atlanta Day 1

Greetings from Atlanta!

Michele Mannon and I sat together on the flight down. As it turned out, NJRW’s own Nancy Herkness was on our flight, too, as well as another writer we met who was from Maine.

On to Atlanta!

On to Atlanta!

When we landed, a big group of us jumped in a cab (including a Golden Heart finalist coming in from Texas and a Harlequin/Kensington author we met in the taxi line) and came to the hotel.

That’s what people don’t understand is SO great about being a romance author–it’s the friendliest, most supportive community on earth. “You’re going to the Marriott Marquis? So am I! Let’s travel together.” Where else do you find that?

When we arrived, our room was still being cleaned. So where did we end up?

Oh, yeah!

You don’t want to know how much these drinks cost.

Once we got in the room and changed, it was time for the 2013 Golden Heart Finalist dinner at The Big Kahuna restaurant. Here’s a shot of half of the “Lucky 13s”:

Half of the talented and fun Lucky 13s.

I stayed WAY too late in the bar and didn’t get this post up as quickly as I’d liked. What can I say? There is a Microsoft convention here and we have MEN circulating at this hotel. (Woot!)

More tomorrow!

View from our hotel room.

Goodnight, Atlanta.

  1. Sounds like you ladies are off to a good start!!! : )

  2. Nice! Although I’d prefer a convention of firemen or cowboys to a convention of computer geeks, lol!

    Keep the updates coming!

  3. Great photos. Keep those reports coming! I wish I could be there.
