RT Convention, Part OMG I NEED TO PACK!

I leave for the Romantic Times Convention on Tuesday.


I've already got my clothing packed, and I'm doing my best to ignore the little voice in my head that's telling me to FIX IT FIX IT OH GOD YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK LIKE HAMMERED ASS. AND THERE WILL BE PICTURES OF IT.

So. I'm not touching the clothing bag, not at all. I've tried everything on at least twice, and the amount of ass that will be visible should be at a minimum.

I still have to do my nails, pack my fold-able bins for Promo Alley, put some books on the Nook I'm giving away at Club RT, sign the print copies of Bear Necessities and Cynful that are going into said tote...

Did I forget to mention I'm giving away a tote with swag at Club RT? And that one of those bits of swag is a copy of Cynful, which won't be out in print until May 7?

Oh. Consider yourself told.

I'll also be signing The Gray Court series at the Giant Book Fair. I wanted to celebrate the release of The Hob by signing the previous books this year. It will be interesting to see which Dare to Believe cover shows up on my table. Come check it out, you might get one of the last white covers!

And my schedule wound up getting slightly changed. Instead of being at the FAN-Tastic Party 6:15 to 6:45, I'll be there from 6:30 to 7:00. It doesn't leave me a lot of time to change outfits for the Carina Press Cocktail Party or the Harlequin dance, but it will be worth it.

And that's it. I won't blog next week, because I'll be in Kansas City. I will send out my newsletter a few days early. Expect it some time on Sunday, as Monday I'll be hobbling around screeching like a howler monkey (when the Enbrel hasn't knocked my hammered ass out) and throwing shit into my suitcase.

You can find my full schedule here. If I'm at one of these events, or you see me at the bar, feel free to walk up to me and talk to me. I'd love it. :D
