#RAGT14

Hello! I meant to get this blog post out yesterday, but I got swallowed up reading. I read three books yesterday! I ignored everything and just sat and read. Ever do that?

I am just back from the Annual Reader & Author Get Together in West Chester Ohio, just outside Cincinnati. I went with my good friend, Jessica. I had a great time, as always. I got to meet some new readers,  like Holly Smith and Jennifer Sapa, and I got to meet Janet Rodman, who I already knew online. Hi, Janet!

There is so much going on at RAGT that I don’t know where to start! There were panels, meet-and-greets, games, book signings, shopping, a raffle baskets, and more. The first person I saw when I arrived was Paige Tyler. Paige is a fellow Romance Diva, and she has always been so kind to me. I can’t tell you how much I love Paige.

I met many authors for the first time including Ty Langston and Tatum Throne, who were part of the Writing Divas and a Dude boardroom. The other Divas were Paige Tyler and Tigris Eden.  Tigris wasn’t able to be there due to a family emergency.   One of the things my boardroom did was a fashion show. I have

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

lots of SCA garb, from many different time periods and cultures, and the hard part was deciding which to bring!  Here is a pic from that: Tatum Throne in Viking, Ty Lanston in 16th Century Florentine, Paul in late 20th Century Indian, Paige Tyler in a sari, and Marilyn Mandalis in 16th Century Japanese.  The fashion show was a lot of fun and people seemed to like it. I think we’ll do it again next year.

Jessica and I also put together a raffle basket. It was won by Marcie, who seemed to be very excited about her win. I hope she enjoys the afghan I made, and the books and the $40.00 Barnes & Noble gift card that Jessica donated.

Yes, next year. I’m already very excited about it!
