I started off my day hitting the gym and working out HARD, only to epically sneeze in the hallway and pull a muscle in my back, like the spaz that I am. All pictures from this point on will include me under the influence of alcohol or heavy Advil doses. The show must go on!
My first GRL-related event of the day was "Books You Can Devour" storyteller series with Rick R. Reed, Bru Baker, and Brandon Witt. They talked about their favorite food memories, and what kinds of research they do or don't do for their food-loving stories. It was scrumptious! (Get it?? I'm cool like that.)
|Sharing a secret white-trash mac-and-cheese recipe with us! Psst- it includes tuna!|
|Daaaamn, those arms!|
|"Who is this stranger who keep coming up to me?" <-- ZAM's thoughts|
I also talked to Jay Northcote and J.K. Hogan!
|Jay Northcote! Tatoos, anyone?|
|Do you think I could pull off J.K. Hogan's hair?|
I also had a LONG talk with K.A. Mitchell (who I absolutely did NOT bump and grind with later that night...) about her new pen name, Cin Forrester! Her upcoming book with this pen name is a SPANKING story! Music to my dirty, dirty ears.
|So pumped for the new Cin Forrester books! I also, of course, love her as K.A. Mitchell!|
|I found you, Kaje!|
|Me, with Brandon Witt's leggings. I WANT THOSE. #partofyourworld|
|A table of very innocent looking prizes.|
|Edmond Manning, rocking that condom hat like a BOSS.|
|Just some bros hanging out after wrestling practice... (I see you, Jacob Z. Flores!)|
|I won a prize! Edmond and I are matching!|
|Close up of my prize. And, yes, I had to walk through the entire hotel lobby with that thing!|
|Bros giving bros a lift.|
|I told a story! I have an expressive face....|
|I also won some fancy jewelry! Perfect for special occasions!|
|It was sooooo goooood!|
|Hamming it up with readers Susan, Anya, and Alissa!|
And, if you missed it, here are my wraps ups of Day 1 and Deals!
