Celebrate the Small Things - Better Late Than Never edition

Sorry I'm late with this post!  I'm in Denver, participating in RomCon.  I attended in 2011 with my mom as a reader, and we had a great time.  Now that I'm an author, I decided to go back and meet some new people!  It's been a blast, but I will admit to being tired. :)

On Friday, I participated in the Bridal Shower Mania panel, which was a lot of fun.  We played a lot of common bridal shower games with the readers, and they won prize packs from each of the participating authors. As you can see, the authors wore a bit of bling to make it easy for readers to find us:
That's me with Molly Cannon :)
My first prize pack was given to a reader named Jeanette.  She was very sweet, and it turns out she was there with her mom.  It seems to be a tradition!
I participated in a few more panels (but forgot to take pictures!) and then it was on to the booksigning.  My table was full of swag, and most of it was taken by readers, which means my suitcase is a lot lighter coming home :)  The signing was fun, and I had the pleasure of sitting next to 'Elton John' (she was ready for the dance party that started right after the signing).
I also had the pleasure of meeting Dream, one of the moderators on the Harlequin message boards!  It's always nice to put a face to pixels :)
Today has been a ton of fun as well, and while it's all a bit of a blur, I did get to sit next to Heather Graham during a panel.  She very graciously took a picture with me, and I managed not to squee too loudly in her ear.
Fangirl moment!
Overall, the conference has been a blast!  I'm a little sad to leave tomorrow, but I must say I miss Mister and my kitties.

The good news is that I have a ton of goodies coming home with me, which means some awesome prizes for you guys!  My Facebook page has been steadily growing in recent weeks, and my current goal is to get to 500 'Likes'.  I'm going to offer some prizes for every milestone (400, 450, and 500 'Likes'), so if you haven't liked my page already, get over there and do so for your chance to win!  I'll post more details next week.

In the meantime, I hope you're having a good weekend!  What are you up to?

If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week.  This is a blog hop hosted by VikLit, and it's one of my favorite blogging things to do.  I encourage you to check out her blog and the full list of participants, because who doesn't love reading about good things?
