I just love that word! Anyway, I’m exhausted. Spent the last four days in Las Vegas with my buddies Megan Hart and Anya Bast and Leigha Richards and we had an absolute blast. I got a lot of great ideas for books and my picture taken with The Thunder From Down Under – Megan says she’s going to scan hers and I’ll be sure to post one here. If you are in Vegas, you need to go. Pirates with nipple rings and James Dean, ooooh!
A recharge to my creative batteries if there ever was one! I edited and sketched out plot and talked writing in the breeze in a hot tub and drinking coronas. Sang and danced, listened to great Irish music at the Nine Irishmen pub in the New York New York (what a cool place!). Saw the cheeziest show ever “Bite” which had vampire teeth, bare breasts, a “vampire lord”, people hanging from ropes and magic (it was my comment that all they needed were vampire poodles jumping through flaming hoops). It was so bad it was good.
Anyway, here’s a picture of Megan Hart (who just signed a three book deal with Harlequin Spice) on your left and me on the right (not bad for 2 am huh?).
And one of Anya – who was the belle of the ball and we had to beat the men off (heh, not like that!) with a stick.
Notice how she looks great even when she’s goofing off? Sigh. If she wasn’t so marvelous I’d hate her.
And one just before we headed out for an afternoon of serious, studious pursuits. Because we were so not drinking and going to see male strippers or anything.
From Left to right – Lauren Dane, Anya Bast, Megan Hart and Leigha Richards (a Mav in training).
There are more pictures and I definitely have more to say about Vegas and our trip in general but I have work to do for now so I’ll be off and comment more later!
