report from RT...

Well, RT is as crazy as I expected it to be, and then some. There's tons of writers, agents, readers, editors & booksellers checking out the workshops, bootcamps, reader programs and publisher spotlights, and the buzz around the hotel is great. I had my first book signing yesterday (which went well--lots of ladies came over to chat, and many of them actually had FMR for me to sign. How cool is that?) My second signing also went well, and I finally met several internet friends, including Cy Korte (who runs Book Isle) and Rachel--who also has Miriam for an agent--and discovered both as cool in person as they are online. And last night I had dinner with Anne, my Bantam editor, and had a great chat with her. I pried out the details of my next cover, and have to say, it sounds fantastic! Today the Aussies at the conference hosted a 'Tim Tam morning tea', and a lot of the top fantasy authors came along. I met Charlaine Harris, Laurel K Hamilton and her hubby, L A Banks (who is an absolute blast), Angela Knight and many others (I have photos, so will put them all on my site when I get back.) My next mission is to meet Kim Harrison, so I can thank her for giving me a such great cover quote. And then tonight, I'm having dinner with Anne, Kelly Armstrong and Linea Sinclair. Should be a blast!

Oh my GOD! I wish I had met Kelly Armstrong! I'd strangle Laurell K. Hamilton for turning her books into crap! And I LOVE Kim Harrison!

Hey Keri,

Wow, we're in the same timezone! I'm living in Maryland now. I just dropped in because I wanted to let you know that I saw a giant display of your book in my local Borders in Columbia :) (and bought one of course). Have a great time at RT!

Cheers

Laura

Keri, it was so great to finally meet you in person! I'm so glad to hear you're going to Houston next year, too. After this, I'll probably never be able to miss an RT conference.
