Back from Dallas and a new book at Fictionwise

I'm still a little tired from the trip to RWA Nationals...even though I took it easy yesterday. If you call an early doctor's appointment, mega grocery shopping and running my kids to work and back home taking it easy. :)

The conference was lots of fun.
I went to the Romance Divas dinner which was fabulous. I also went to the Passionate Ink luncheon which was wonderfully fun.
And over the several days I got to see all my friends from last year's conference. Yea.

My good friend Roxanne St. Claire won a RITA.
Woo Hoo, Rocki!!
A chapter mate Kresley Cole also won a RITA. Yea, Kresley!!
And my critique partner Carolyn O'Neill won first place in the Paranormal Historical category of the Beau Monde contest. She got to dress up in a period costume and everything. I'm so proud of her. :)

I still need to download the pictures off my camera. One with Rocki and Nora Roberts where I've been threatened with death if I don't send. Which I will. :):)

While I know there has been much discussion over the changes to PAN and Publisher eligibility during the General Meeting at the conference, I believe I now qualify for PAN. Woo Hoo!!!
I'll keep you posted. :)

Also, my latest book Little Red Rides the Wolf was released at Fictionwise.
Check it out by clicking on the link above.

The cover is a little naughty, but I love it. The story is my very adult version of Little Red Riding Hood. Hope you enjoy it. :)

One last note and unfortunately it's a very sad one.

Rhonda Thompson passed away several days ago. I got to know her at the 2006 RWA conference in Atlanta last year. I have one of her wonderful books The Cursed One permanently posted on my blog.
Not only did I adore her books, she was funny and a true sweetheart. She will be missed very much by anyone who knew her.
My prayers and condolences go out to her family.

Congrats on PAN eligibility, Lara, that's outstanding! Can't wait to see the pics. :)

I'm sorry about the loss of Rhonda, I didn't know her, but I'm very sorry.
