I know I’ve been back almost a week already but I am just now catching my breath. RT2012 was amazing. It’s so great to see old friends from conferences past and meet new ones too. I feel like after a few years on the conference circuit now they just keep getting better and better. This year was extra special because 9 of the 12 members of International Heat (plus three IH husbands, three IH kids and one IH dad) were in Chicago for the event. That doesn’t happen very often! Plus I was super honored that Morgan’s Surprise won an RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Indie Erotic Romance of 2011. The giant book fair was… well, GIANT. And Lexxie Couper’s zombie dancing stole the show at the paranormal speakeasy dinner. Oh, and I got to be in the background on CNBC at the ass crack of dawn. Here are some pictures from the week.
