I am late. As reporting goes, I am a total fail but I just wanted to tell you all that GRL was awesome. I had the best time, and between the amazing authors, wonderful fans and the fantastic food, I can't wait to go again. I so enjoyed meeting everyone and hugging everyone and OMG, I did NOT (repeat not) barf on my shoes during my Q&A. Bonus! Me, Marie Sexton and Scotty Cade did our talks together and they were both so wonderful and supportive, I can't thank them enough. I'm not so great with public speaking and they both took turns holding my hand. I just adore them.

The writing workshops were very informative and I took lots of notes. I got to help set-up the DSP book table and scope out all the cool swag. I got all my books signed that I schlepped as well as buying 10 more. At the Meet The Author dinner, it was me and Ethan Day at the same table. I was so excited. He of course brought books and I just brought Jin & Logan cell phone charms (I failed swag) but since my husband was with me and there was an Ethan Day book in front of him...I got TWO! Woot! And Ethan signed them. It was heaven.

Next year GRL will be in Chicago and I certainly hope I get to go again. But I so wanted to thank everyone who made it a joy for me to be there. I have wonderful memories that I will always cherish.
