The RT convention is one of the highlights of my year. I start counting down to the next one the minute the previous one finishes. Why? Because I get to spend it with my writer friends (although I’m still sulking about Sami not making this year), and I get to meet readers who I spend lots of time with online.

I could write a long post here about my time at RT this year, but I think the best way to share how awesome it is, is with photos. Questions will be answered after. Honest 🙂

Remember when I felt up a stranger? Well, I also got a massage from a complete stranger. How's that for the universe restoring balance?
