I'm back home from Raven Con. I had a wonderful time. I got to meet Marcia Colette in person after blogging and e-mailing her back and forth. I sat in on her first panel Twice told tales. She didn't know she was moderating until she arrived at the Con. She did a great job. I got her to sign her book for me. Wish we had more time to talk but, I had my girls with me.

I was able to go to the Con on Friday and Sat. I mostly listened trying to learn as much as possible and, I did learn a lot. I think I prefer the smaller Con events over the large ones. I liked being in small conference rooms up close to some of your favorite authors and being able to have your questions answered personally.

It was so cool sitting in on the panel with David Coe and Missy Massey and thinking, that I follow their blog and advise on Magical Words.

The Raven Con Convention was very inspirational and encouraging.

Oh! The Romantic Times convention was this weekend and friend Marie-Claude Bourque won! That means Ancient Whispers is going to be published. I am so happy for her. She has worked so hard for this. I'll be buying her book as soon as it hits the shelf. I've got to support my peeps.

Well, time to start working on the 3rd draft of Raven's Transformation.

It was great meeting you too. I'm already looking forward to our next meeting, wherever that'll be. ;-) FYI...Keep an eye on Mike Kabongo ( His literary agent Q&A session was very good.

And have you seen Marie's bookcover yet? I think it's gorgeous!

Yes, I saw Marie's bookcover! It looks absolutely gorgeous! I bet she's loving it too.

My girls said, they liked meeting you. They liked the panel but, they aren't interested in attending another.

I was supprised. They both like to read. J reads PC Cast, Harry Potter, Eragon etc.

Paige likes the Warrior series by Erin Hunter.

Wish I could go to Con Carolinas. Hope you have fun!
