Day #3 in Atlanta

Day #3 was a blast! So many things happening. This blog might run a little long.

First off, here's a pic of me & Cindy with our new friends (Colleen's buddies). From the left Cindy, Kelly, Tammy, Holly, me & Colleen. I asked yesterday and someone's name is definitely spelled with an "i" but I've since forgotten who. Hey, we were in a bar when they told me. You don't have to remember things during karoake.

We started the day with breakfast, checking email and general lounging. I had lunch with my fabulous agent, Kristin Nelson, then headed back to the hotel for more gabbing and a short dip in the hot tub to relax. Then it was time to prepare for the book signing! Here are pics of some of my favorite authors. Me & Stephanie Bond (make note for husband to fix exposure) - me, Jacquie D'Alessandro & Cindy - me & Jennifer St. Giles - Nora Roberts, signing my book - Susan Elizabeth Phillips hearing that I absolute LOVE the foot file she recommended last year - SEP and I posing on well-manicured feet. :) FYI - I got a really cool Bond Girl t-shirt from Stephanie Bond!!! Whoohoo!!! Will try to remember picture later.

Then it was off for a night of fun with our new friends and the Wet Noodle Posse. We went to a sorta pub/bar (served fantastic food) but also had karoake!!! The place was small (about the size of a large garage and had waaaayyyy too many good singers for us to buy it. Turns out we're in the middle of the art's district and most of them are local performers. We had a blast! Check out the photo of the Wet Noodle Posse in action. And NO, I do not sing! Finally hailed cabs about 1:00 am and went back to hotel to collapse.

Still forgot to get picture with pink "First Sale" ribbon. Will try for tomorrow!

More on Thursday!
