RT's over for another year... what will you remember?

The Ellora's Cave Fantasy Party kicked off the festivities with a bang as we authors came on the scene in dress-up finery in black or red (or fanciful costumes) escorted by EC's buff cover hunks.

Chocolate flowed, literally, from fountains. Card decks featuring EC authors' covers were the hits of the party...and the convention itself as readers fought to get as cards signed by authors so they might win a gift certificate to be used at the booksigning on Saturday.

Wednesday brought workshops, strolls down promo lane to Club RT to look at all the gorgeous gift baskets from authors and publishers...and shopping. I swear, every costume was more gorgeous than the last one! That's Eve Vaughn with the whip and partners in passion Sahara Kelly and S. L. Carpenter, a few of many making merry at the Vampire Ball Wednesday night. Stephanie "Flash" Burke looked stunning every night--and even in the daytime Thursday before the Changeling author luncheon when I caught her wearing a lovely Japanese kimono.

This was only the beginning of a spectacular week of meeting new friends and renewing old acquaintances! I'll be posting more each day this week...

Hey Ann! Are you going to post some pics of your costume? I'm sure we'd love to see it!

Okay. I just got the photos uploaded, so I guess it's time for another blog entry... I wish I'd gotten to the gym more often!

LOL, don't we all?

Yes, don't we all? We're talking about repeating the Faery Ball next year. Think I'll do a costume that covers more of me, although this one was gorgeous (in spite of the belly fat).
