Lori Foster Get Together!

The Lori Foster Get Together is my most favorite conference to go to!  It’s casual and fun, and best of all, I get to hang out with friends!

The Get Together officially starts on Friday, but my hubby and I like to get there on Thursday so we can have dinner with the fantastic Moni Draper (aka author Monette Michaels) and her husband.  Afterward, we came back to the hotel and hung out, where we met up with author and fellow Romance Diva, Maddy Barone, and her friend, Dossie.  Mima (also a Romance Diva) came in a little while later.  They went to the mystery party at Duffy Brown’s and couldn’t stop talking about the dresses Maddy made for the party.  If you didn’t know, Maddy is an excellent seamstress, and the dresses she made were beautiful.

The next day, Friday, my hubby and I helped stuff goodie bags.  That’s another highlight of the Get Together.  Not only do you get to see all the swag first as you fill the bags, but you get to have fun with all the other volunteers while doing it!

Registration was later that day, followed by pizza!  You’re probably wondering why I get so excited over pizza, but we don’t eat it that much, so it’s another highlight!  We sat with Barb (we met her the first time we went and have been friends ever since – she’s also on my street team!), Maddy and Dossie, and Robyn Bachar and Christine Lawrence, two other Divas.  After that, it was time for the book signing.  Again, another highlight of the weekend!  I love meeting everyone and talking to readers.  I got to meet my wonderful FB friend Leslie as well as another street team member, Kimberly!  I also got to sit next to Moni, so that made it extra fun!  Oh, and my cowboy ducks (to do with my cowboy romances) were a huge hit!  Later that night, we hung out with author Renee Vincent and Becke Martin Davis, and lots of other authors and readers

We did some more hanging out on Saturday, meeting some more readers and going to an excellent marketing workshop taught by the very cool and very knowledgeable Sheila Clover from COS Productions.  Then it was time for dinner with Barb and two new readers we met, Valerie and Barbara (who won my raffle basket!)  After, we hung out with the newest members of my street team, Janet and Cindy!  I have to say, they’re awesome

We had a great time and met a ton of fabulous people – some of whom I’m sure I forget to mention.  I can’t wait until next year so we can get to know everyone even better!

Oh, and if we’re freinds on FB, I’ve got lots more pics there!

    It was great to finally meet you and get in some picture posing time together for the first time in years if for no other reason than to say, “We’ve met, let me show you!” hahaha Better than just a tap on the shoulder when you were busy with others, huh? I will be forever attending LF/DB get-together as long as it’s around as I have since its inception! Best fun filled with loads of memories to carry us through the year til the next one comes around to make more! 🙂
