More Conference Photos

As promised, here are some more photos from the RWA San Francisco conference.

Me with my wonderful, wonderful editor, Cindy Hwang. I *heart* Cindy. (This was taken at the Penguin cocktail party).

Me with RITA winner Anne Stuart! Congratulations, Anne!

Some of the New Zealand gang directly after the RITA ceremony. From left: Amanda (Ashby), Sara (Hantz), Ellie and Giovanna.

I ran into CL Wilson on Wednesday afternoon. It was the only time I saw her at the conference - it's this weird conference thing, some people you see every day, others almost never.

Jill Myles, whose book has an awesome title - Sex Starved - but we have to wait till 2009 to read it, and Meljean Brook.

Marilyn from the Writing Playground and Gail Dayton (whose March 2009 book, New Blood, is fabulous! I grabbed an ARC at the Tor signing and couldn't put it down. More about the book closer to the release date. I have plans to wrangle Gail into an interview).

And to end this post, here's a photo of me with Jennifer K!

I still have more photos, so there'll be another conference post tomorrow. Hope you guys are enjoying the recaps. :)

Aw, I didn't even realize you'd taken a picture of me! Lol - look at how sweaty I am! Must be at the Harlequin party. ;)

And my book does not come out until January 2010. Ah the rescheduling!

Christine said...

Fabulous pictures! You and Cindy look exceptionally beautiful in that first picture, all dressed up for the RITAs. Again, thank you for sharing, Nalini. :)

Thank you so much Nalini! I agree with Christine - both you and Cindy look gorgeous! I love putting names to faces, although you won't see me anywhere near a camera any time soon :)

Not long to go now until HTP is released. Obsessed? Who? Me? Never :)

YAY! Gail roomed with my writing partner and I. She's an awesome human being. I shamelessly begged for an ARC. Love it! Haven't finished because I'm being my usual Sibyl-reader self and am reading two others at the same time. I'm allowing myself two chapters at a time. LOL

It was so wonderful to see you again. Thanks for posting the photo. I'm so excited for Gail's new career with Tor. It's the perfect place for her.


Kati said...

OK, the picture of you and Cindy took a while to load for me. And I kept thinking, "Wow, Cindy looks remarkably like Anne Stuart!" LOL!

Great photos, Nalini!

Saskia Walker said...

I'm loving your photos!

alanajoli said...

It looks like you had such fun!

Jennifer K. said...

Nalini, my friends at work just laughed when I told them about how I just walked up to you and said, "Excuse me, are you Nalini Singh?"

How else was I supposed to talk to you, I want to know? Sure, it was pushy, but you can tell I'm somewhat pushy by the way I always bug you for more excerpts, etc.

Something to laugh about: On the first day of workshops when I saw you as you exited the elevators and headed out into the main lobby of the hotel, you asked me for directions. I turned to my roommate after you strolled off and said, "I just gave Nalini Singh directions!" Whoo-hoo!

It was very nice to meet and listen to all the fabulous authors who attended.

Again, it was great to meet you and I look forward to seeing you at Lora Leigh's RAW in September. Have a great week and weekend.

Jennifer K.

Nalini Singh said...

Jill - I thought you said 2010, but then I went and checked your website and it said 2009. Someone *cough* needs to update their website ;-)

Saskia - I have one of you too!

Arwen, Marilyn - Gail's book is really great. I'm looking forward to the next one already.

Jennifer K - I needed those directions! And I'm so glad you said hi :)

Candice - thanks! It seems like most of the photos were taken on Wed. I did wear other clothes, I promise!

MaryKate, LOL!

Alana - it was a real blast :)

Christine, Orannia, Danette - no problem. I'm delighted you're enjoying them :)
