Emerald City Writer's Conference 2010-#1

It’s Monday, and I’m still en route home from the ECWC. Last night I gave up on the drive– I was too excited, and tired, from the weekend, to fight the wind and the growing darkness. Safety first, right?

Anyway– it was an amazing trip, made fabulous by more than one thing. And since I don’t have the cords I need to download pictures from my camera until I do get home, I’ll add the other sweetness points the rest of this week. I do have these pictures from friends over Facebook (yeah, Facebook!)

I have to start with the fact I roomed with the kick-ass awesome Ann Aguirre. She writes wonderful hot romance, wicked urban fantasy, dystopia romance, futuristic and has a killer YA coming out next spring that will rock your socks off. We met at Nationals, and I love her to pieces.

AND, I finally got to meet Lauren Dane in person. She’s been an inspiration to me from day one, and being able to chat with her about writing, life (and pretty boots 😉 ) was incredible. <3 If you haven’t read anything of Lauren’s yet–why not? Hmmm, you need to do something about that, soon! (I think her most recent in her Futuristic series is my favorite- Insatiable. I love her Cascadia Wolves series, but Insatiable just had that something extra special…

Saturday night after the book signing (which I’ll have pictures off my camera) Lauren had organized a dinner to a local restaurant with some of the signing authors. Alyssa Day, front far left, was the keynote speaker on Friday night and OMG- she had us alternating between tears and laughter. There is a beautiful representation of writers in this picture- some YA, some romantic suspense, erotic, futuristic, paranormal, steam-punk and contemporary. All in all enough motivational energy to make me want to try even harder to write better and better books.

Ann Aguirre is, definitely, one of my favorite people in the planet, but I will say that all the ladies in the last picture that I’ve met (and a couple that I’ve only corresponded with) are quite nifty people too.

So glad you had a such a great time!

*waiting for more pictures*
