Monday AGAIN?

I know, I know, I'm a bad bad author and I owe you all a list of last week's winners. And I SWEAR to do it SOON. I was at the SoCalRWA conference this weekend and did my first keynote speech. Also, in case you were wondering, I survived. Here I am at the signing, secretly terrified that no one would get in my line.


But people did get in line and people BROUGHT ME COOKIES!!!! I love those people.

Here I am with Helenkay Dimon, who DEMANDED that I say yes to this gig. And then when I tried to back out because it involved a speech, she threatened to make sure I never got cookies again, ever. That's a good friend. She also came and got me at the airport and we only got lost twice. In two miles.

And here I am with Julia Quinn at the signing. And no, I can't explain my hair. It has a mind of its own.

So that was my weekend. I ate too much, laughed a LOT, and pretended to be social. I need a nap now ...
