It’s only Thursday?

Barbara Vey -- April 26th, 2007

Day 2:  Another full day scheduled, so I needed an early start.  This place starts hopping early.  There's Trouble in the West morning mixer hosted by Christina Skye and Bobbi Smith.  Unfortunately, I don't get that far.  I met Chris Keeslar, senior editor of Dorchester Publishing and he made me an offer I couldn't refuse.  No not that, but a mocha cappuccino was a close second.  Then it was interview time with Bobbi Smith (Miracles), Robin T. Popp (Tempted in the Night), Diane Whiteside (Bond of Blood), Jana DeLeon (Rumble on the Bayou), Jim Butcher (White Night), Shannon Butcher (No Regrets) and Christina Skye (Code Name: Blondie).  After talking with these talented writers, I wanted to go back to my room and read all the new stuff they gave me.  Really, I have the shakes knowing I don't have time to read until the plane ride home and even then, what to read first?  I hate this kind of decision.  Of course, I know Jade Lee would tell me to read her latest first…so I will.  (I'm so easy)

Brenda Joyce, Sony and eHarlequin hosted a lovely luncheon.  There was a demonstration of the Sony e-reader and Harlequin explained their e-books program.  One cool thing was that you could buy certain author's books in bundles for a discount.  They also offer out of print books.

Finally got out of the hotel and into the fresh Houston air at 6 p.m. with the temperature 69 degrees.  Absolutely heavenly.  We walked to Jimmy's for a Coney Island hotdog and I'm more than a little concerned about the shade of green used for the relish (think shamrocks).  Then to Silhouette's Nocturne evening mixer for dessert.  Dipping chocolate with marshmallows, cookies and fruit.  Yummmm.

Next up is the Faery Ball.  An amazing dinner, great 70s dancing music and faeries with wings.  No, really.    The costumes were gorgeous with flowing materials, feathers, tieras, and lots of cleavage.   Met up with Kelsey Lewis and Chris Grover who write e-books and a special thanks to Judi McCoy who was kind enough to let me use her room phone when I locked myself out of my room.  (It wasn't my fault)

At midnight the party moves to an oasis for mimosas and decadent Kaulua served in chocolate tulip cups hosted by Helen Rosburg.  The only thing missing was Rudolph Valentino as the Sheik.

Bottom line:  Obviously, at this party, there is no such thing as too many feathers or too much cleavage.

    I got a haircut with a #1 which is the shortest setting for a barbers electric shaver the day I got my Igrow. My spouse took a snapshot of the top of my hair so that we could analyze this on our own. During the time period of ninety days I was able to see completely new hairs starting to grow in. This gadget looks hilarious but it really works. Knowing that it’s a one time fee is great as well. Now I enjoy lounging with it on. I use it 2 to 3 times everyday for fifteen minutes or so and nobody bothers me whenever I have it on. I sense the kids are petrified of it :) . My partner was very distrustful when I bought it but now she also uses it. Everyones different, you can’t know until you try.
