STATUS: I’m finally back in my room before midnight and have the energy to blog.
What’s playing on the iPod right now? Nothing at the moment.
Best Quote of the Conference So far
“In paranormal and you’re not an already established published author, if it’s the same story about a hunky magical hero with the same beautiful mortal woman saving the world, it doesn’t matter if the world is defined by Shiva, vampires, Quetzalcoatl, or Merlin; that alone is not making the genre fresh.”
–Abby Zidle, S&S Pocket

Best San Francisco Random Moment
While standing on the corner of Union Square in downtown while checking email messages on my iPhone, I looked up and around to figure out which way I needed to walk to find my street when a gentleman standing nearby caught my eye and said: “just in case you might have been wondering, you still have got it going on.”
Not quite sure how to reply (and I actually hadn’t been wondering), I went with the simple, “thank you.”
Can’t say that’s ever happened to me in Denver. Made me chuckle all the way to my lunch meeting.
Hottest RWA Moment
Ally Carter and I convince thriller writer Barry Eisler to proudly wear “I am a Gallagher Girl” pin.
