Romantic Times Convention

I haven't posted for quite some time because of health problems that receded in the excitement of the RT Convention. Boy, was it worth going!!!!!

Let me share some of the best moments:
Signing for the first time in my life at a conference.

Ellora's Cave Fantasy Party: Crossing the stage at the arm of a hunk to die for. Unfortunately I forgot my camera but I will have my friends' pictures in a few days.

My friend and critique partner, Helen Scott-Taylor, winning the RT 2008 American Title IV.

Meeting many fellow authors from Ellora's Cave and Cerridwen Press.

Kelly Kirch-------------------------------------- Mona with Kathy Kullig and Kathleen Coddington -------------Anny Cook

And the highlights of the RT convention, meeting the fabulous models.

Meet Mr. Romance, Chris Winters on the right and his second runner up, James Gaskin (Jimmy) on the left.

My friend Joan and I posing with Jimmy, and then with Chris.

What a great time we had. See you next year in Orlando. This time I will be driving and taking as many books as I can load in my car.

Looks like you had a great time! I hope lots of people took advantage of meeting you and got copies of your book! :) Here's to Russians who kiss well!

Oh Arwen, thank you. It was a blast. See you in SF.

Thanks so much for the photos of everyone at RT! Looks like you had a wonderful time. :-)


Kathy Kulig said...

Great pics Mona. So glad I got to meet you at RT. It was a blast. Hard to keep your mind on the convention with all that eye candy wandering around. Kathy

Paisley Kirkpatrick said...

Hi Mona, So glad you had so much fun, but then again how could you not with all the attention from those gorgeous hunks.

Molly Daniels said...

Hope to meet you next year, Mona:)

Mona Risk said...

Jeanmarie, it was my first RT and a blast. I enjoyed every moment and met so many people, one of them was the lovely Kathy Kulig.

Kathy you looked stunning in your golden dress.

Marlene, the hunks were the icing on the cake.

Molly, I sure hope to meet you next year.

A good time was had by all by the looks of it

Mona Risk said...

Amarinda, I wish you were there. We missed you. I bet we would have had more fun even. Who knows maybe I'll go to Down Under Country one of these days and meet you and Helen W.

Shelley Munro said...

I loved the photos, Mona. Thanks for sharing.

Great pics, Mona. We certainly had fun. Hope next year in Orlando is as good!
