So, in case you didn't know, I went to RomCon this past weekend. I had won tickets a couple of weeks ago and so I figured out a way to get my hiney up to Denver to have some fun. My ride was going back and forth Friday and Sat, so I couldn't stay later for some of the other fun things going on. Disappointing... sure, but hey I got to get in this con for free so who am I to complain? I will have to budget for a possible win next time and get a room. :D Anyhoo... I did get to go to several of the daytime fun events and I did have fun!
First event was Build a Hero:
Sylvia Day and Erin Kellison were in my group and we came up with a hero who is trying to save his secret paranormal baby! LOL It was a lot of fun throwing out ideas with the other people and the authors. I really got to talk to Erin and she is just too cool! In short... she rocks!!
After this, I went to Bloody Hell in which they talked about blood splatters. Yea, I know... but I was curious. I found out that they were actual crime scene photos. Abby Sciuto lied to me. It's only fun when it's fake. As soon as I knew they were real, I couldn't help but feel totally bad for the victims and families. Nope, I'll never become a crime detective. :(
There were several other events and I had fun and even won a Kimberly Frost book! We did a sort of Password type of game (which I sucked at, but luckily people at my table rocked... sorry gals!). Oh Kimberly rocked as well. She signed my book. :D
Oh and then FINALLY I got to meet the one person I couldn't wait to meet:
Go to her blog if you haven't yet. You see that picture on her blog? It doesn't do her justice! I finally spotted someone who looked like her, but she was quickly disappearing down the hall. I turned back around and talked to some other great people I met. As I was talking I heard her say something about TX, so I looked back and asked if she was Felicia. YES IT WAS! She was so sweet, cute and everything you think she is. To borrow Ashley's (the Bookish Brunette) expression: She rocked my face off! If you EVER get a chance to meet this girl... do it! I'm so serious. It was a great end to a great day!
Btw... this is what the clouds looked like on the way from the con that day:
Lovely eh? lol
The second day was also fun and luckily I got to see more of Felicia. I really enjoyed getting to know her more! However, she missed Strip a Hero. I have piccys to prove that I went to it! Don't you love me now? ;D
The authors wrote skits and the guy (named Brooks) and the woman (an actress... I forgot her name... go figure... lol she did rock tho...) acted them out. The first one the authors got to undress the hero:
I would have said the name of the other guy, but he left after the first skit and I didn't find out what his name was... *sniff*
Anyhoo... the heroine got to kiss the first hero:
...and then the second hero:
Of course the second act people in the audience got to undress Brook:
I didn't take as many picture of that one since the undressing was so close and I had to pay attention. ;)
For the last skit he put on a kilt and kept his shirt off:
No, we didn't get to find out what was under the kilt.
The last event I got to go to was the paranormal tea. That was fun even though I didn't win any books. Just getting to know others that loved to read and authors was a blast. I didn't come home with Brooks to add to the man harem. Looks like Felicia had a better chance than I did (ask to check out her pics of that part.. lol). Hm... I wonder how he is settling in in her harem. I may have to borrow him sometime. ;)
That was my 2 exhausting and fun days at RomCon. Next time I need to budget so I can stay longer. :)
Oh and if you ever get a chance meet these authors:
Of course the other authors rocked, but I got to talk to them more than the others. They are so great!
