RT Booklovers Convention 2012, Day One
In addition to getting settled in and trying to get my bearings, I was able to sit in on a few panels. The photo above is of the "Ain't Yo Momma's Vampires--How to Reinvent What's Been Overdone." Angela Knight moderated the panel, which included Rebecca York, Molly Harper, Darynda Jones and Virna dePaul. Some of you know that Rebecca York is a friend (and mentor) and she shared a lot of solid writing advice, as always, along with the other panelists. Really, every one of the panelists had great advice and each had different approaches to how they write and how they think of storytelling. I am going to give a particular shout-out to Molly Harper, who is whip-smart and funny. Funny, funny. See this woman speak live if you get the chance.
I was so wiped out after dinner with Rebecca and her friends, Angela Knight and Nancy Holder, that I skipped the parties and crawled into bed early. No Ellora's Cave party for me!
Okay, it's 7 AM and I need to get ready for my group's, the Mystery Chix, fan breakfast. I will try to remember to take a few pictures to let you know what it's like. Check back for a post of today's excitement.
