How I didn't meet JR Ward

I've fallen behind with blogging lately. But there is a lot going on.  Gigi is slowly getting ready to meet Grandpa in heaven, our weekends have been filled with friends' birthday parties, and I was gone two Saturdays in a row.  I feel like I've fallen behind on housework, and I know I am super behind at work.

But in my teeny-tiny bit of free time, I've been reading! At the RT Convention last month, I signed up for a FAN-tastic day pass.  To be honest, the entire goal of going was to meet JR Ward.  However, what they didn't mention on the website was that the big-name authors - Ward, Rice, Harris, etc. gave out 200 wristbands only. And if you were a conventioneer, you got an early access to the book fair.  Which I was not. So there was no wristband for Sarah. And no meeting JR Ward. (Sniff, sniff.)

However, I did get to meet a lot of other great authors! Darynda Jones, Jeaniene Frost, Lauren Willig (Pink Carnation series), Angela Knight (Mageverse series), and Yasmine Galernon (Otherworld series).  And have two books signed:

  
There were also workshops in the afternoon that I was able to attend.  It was a lot of fun playing Who wants to be a Duchess, while learning about the regency period, having screwdrivers with MaryJanice Davidson and sneaking into the Jane Austen Happy Hour, and attending a Romance Readers Town Meeting.. I prefer paranormal books over regular romance novels, but listening to some authors made me add new books to my TBR list.

After the workshops, there was a Fan-tastic Day Party, where they gave away free books!!! Lots of them!!!
 
So to recap, this was as close as I got to my favorite author:


But, in happier news, I walked away with all of this:


A bracelet with BONES on one side and I LIKE IT ROUGH on the other..
Ahhh, I love Cat and Bones


Including the new novel by Anne Rice!!!
