Hi Everyone –

It has been a BUSY summer!!! So sorry for letting my blog collect dust! LOL Yikes!

Last week I was busy at Comic-Con and this week was the RWA National Convention. (Romance Writer’s of America) I’m home and exhausted, but I have some pictures and some HUGE news!!!

If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while, you probably know I’m the Poster Child for Impatience, so I’m not going to make you wait for the awesome news…. Ready?

I got this super cute notebook yesterday…

So this notepad was a little gift from…

My new agent, Laurie McLean from Larsen Pomada!!!!!

We had an awesome brainstorming meeting, and I’m super excited to have such an enthusiastic, intelligent agent in my corner!!!

*happy dancing*

And how cool is it, that she already knows what a HUGE Disney fan I am???


*dreamy sigh*

Okay so now that the cat is out of the bag, how about some photos? J

Wednesday night was the big Literary Signing… Over 200 authors were signing, including me! I was super excited!

I was even wearing my vampire bat necklace and earrings…

I met lots of readers who made my week by stopping by to tell me how much they enjoyed the book, to grab signed posters, and take pictures! Not only was I not lonely, but within the first hour…

I sold out of Night Walker paperback copies!!!! (Empty space on my table! LOL)


I hope they all went to loving homes… J

Next up I met with my amazing publisher, Liz Pelletier from Entangled Publishing!!!

And the following night I attended the Fantasy Futuristic & Paranormal RWA Chapter’s costume party! Here are the Evil Ones… I wore the Evil Queen sotume that Panda made for me and ended up winning the Best Human Villain trophy!!! WOOT!!!!

We ended the conference with a visit to the RITA Awards with my AMAZING roomies!!!

Cassi Carver, Me, and Melissa Cutler

And it would not be RWA without my friend and Industry Award winner, all around big deal… Barbara Vey!!!

Anyway, I feel like I achieved another step toward the ultimate goal…

Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering??? LOL

Thanks for visiting and I hope to have more super news to share soon!!!
