This week on Word Whores will be a bit different.
Three of us - Allison Pang, Marcella Burnard and I - are headed to the Romantic Times BookLovers Convention in Los Angeles. Our sister whores colluded and decided that this week on the blog should be all dispatches from convention. Or wild speculations on what we're doing at convention have been threatened.
So, here I am, leading off the week with: Packing!
I've determined that I'll need a minimum of nine outfit changes, not including things like bikini for pool time, workout clothes (reference: bikini) and something to sleep in so Marcella won't be scarred for life. I know nine outfits for five days sounds like a little much, but there are three costume balls: Bollywood, Faerie Ball and Vampire Ball. Then there are various "appearances" like book signings and Club RT, which is kind of hanging out and yakking with readers. I also have a pitch session and two author parties.
I'm particularly excited to be invited to the Carina Press Author Cocktail Party. They put a picture of a blue martini on the invite, so I feel sure they were thinking of me, in particular. Several people have asked what I'm wearing to that and I have not decided. I will today. And will post pics, later this week.
As will Marcella and Allison.
So watch this space for all the gossip from RT.
Word Whores go to Los Angeles!
