FRIDAY WAS THE FAERY BALL...
and here I am, with it (almost) all hanging out!
Thursday was the Changeling author lunch, and some of the authors are pictured top left. In front: Angela Knight and Changeling owner Margaret Riley. Behind them: Kate Douglas, Morgan Hawke, Dakota Cassidy, editor Sheri Fogarty, me, and Kira Stone. Next you see Tawny Taylor (my roommate) and JC Wilder at the bar after the Faery Ball.
On the bottom are pictures of the Faery Court and of me in my "Sultan's Faery" costume. Wow, that was terrifying, stepping out of my room with my bare belly hangin' out for all to see. After the initial horror wore off, though, the event was fun, with the court twirling around a maypole held by a hot cover model before being escorted to our individual tables by other buff guys. I was so excited I could barely eat dinner--not even the gorgeous chocolate cake. EC's own Tawny Taylor and Stephanie "Flash" Burke took half of the costume contest prizes, Tawny with a saloon girl outfit and Flash in white face and all black costume--holding a wicked looking sword. Somehow I didn't get a decent photo of Flash in her costume--but I'm sure somebody did.
More tomorrow! The booksigning was a resounding success that deserves its very own page!
