Today was the day that all the So. Cal. bloggers got together. None of them were opposed to having their pictures posted on the web, so here we are, in all our glory. Well except for me. I'm behind the camera. Starting from the left, in the pink shirt is Daphne, then Rowena, then Rosie, then Nikki, then Nikki's adorably well-behaved toddler (seriously, besides some squirming she was an angel), then Lori, then Holly.
A great time was had by all! The only bump in the road was when I mentioned how much I loathed The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. We almost had to revive Rowena. That said, Daphne, Rowena and I had a great talk on how much we all loved Moning's Darkfever and how we're looking forward to Bloodfever, which is due out in October. And of course, there was also much discussion about Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward - with only minimal frothing at the mouth on Rosie's part.
Cheesecake was consumed, books were bought and exchanged. I didn't buy anything, but I did pick up a couple of older Linda Lael Miller titles from Lori (at least I think it was Lori?) and Rosie passed off the latest Jo Goodman to me. All in all, a wonderful day. Hopefully we can do it again soon, but dang it's tough coordinating 7 people! Rosie gets the gold star for doing the actual corralling.
