Today was the day to set up our tables at promotion lane. There were some pre-convention workshops but I believe those were for aspiring authors. I didn't attend any. I did get the chance to meet Jo Carol with Romantic Times Magazine. Nice lady. I met a couple other authors and I think a groupie. Do book conventions have groupies?
She was a very sweet lady and told me this was her 5th RT Convention. An aspiring author, she admitted she was there strictly for the models. LOL She said they would be wandering around the resort all week long. Even showed me some pictures taken of her with some of them. Handsome hunks! Lucky girl:)
I didn't see any of the models she was talking about. Though, I wouldn't know one if he walked right up to me. They look pretty different in, ah, clothes. Ever noticed that?
Once 11:00 came I proceeded to pick my spot for my promo stuff. It helped that the tables were already sectioned off so you didn't get a bigger spot than the next author. Promotion lane is set up in the hallways of the convention center, rows of tables that by tomorrow morning, will be loaded with beautiful book marks, post cards, pens and much more.
I hope to make lots of new friends this week. I've crammed my days full with work shops to hone my writing skills and of course the two book signings. One on Wed 4:30-6:30 and Sat 11:00-2:00. Hope to see some of you there, too.
