Lori Foster Get Together!

The Lori Foster Get Together is one of the best conferences around, and this year’s was no exception!

Even though it didn’t officially start until Thursday, hubby and I got there on Wednesday. After checking in, we headed over to our favorite restaurant PF Changs where we talked books, then went back to the hotel and hung out.  We got to sleep in the next morning, which was bliss, then did some writing before going over to IKEA, where we promptly lost ourselves in the wonders of home decor and furnishings for a couple hours.  If we didn’t have dinner reservations that night, we might still be there! Yeah, we love that place!

That night it was back to PF Changs (told you it was our favorite restaurant!) for dinner with Monette Michaels, whom we met the first time we went to Lori’s and have been good friends with ever since.  Dinner with her at Changs has become a tradition.  After that, it was back to the hotel to regsiter and get our badges, then hang out at the meet and greet.  It was the first time Lori had something on Thursday like that, and hope she does it again because it was so much fun!  Hubby and I hung out with the fangirls from my Street Team – Brenda Wheeler, Janet Juengling-Snell, Cindy Overton, Kimberly Radicy-Rocha and Barb Ledbetter – as well as fellow Romance Divas Maddy Barone and Robyn Bachar, and their friends Jessica P. and Diana B., along with Kathryn M. Oh, and there was a DJ for dancing.  Yay!

Surprisingly, we didn’t stay up too late that night.  Mostly because we had to be up early the next day to help stuff goody bags. You get to meet lots of new people while doing it, so it’s always fun!  It took most of the day, though, so we didn’t get to hang out much until dinner.  Then it was time for the book signing.  It’s one of the highlights of the conference because I get to meet so many people. Even recruited some new members for my Street Team! Love it!  Afterward, we met Desiree Holt and her daughter in the bar, which rocked!

We slept in again on Saturday, then spent the day hanging out with everyone until crazy late that night!  Man, were we tired the next day!  But it was worth it!

Can’t wait until next time!

I have pictures on my FB page, so hope you’ll stop by!

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!
