If you've never been, I'd encourage you to go. There are very few people in my day to day life with whom I can discuss my passion for gay romance. GRL is full of like-minded folks, and stepping into the event hotel is like going home.
I spoke with fans of my work, and fangirled other authors whose words have inspired me. I reconnected with old friends and made many new ones.
This year I took a variety of swag, and distributed free copies of The Match Before Christmas, Fanning the Flames, A Lie I Can Live With, Galen and the Forest Lord, The Sentinel, Almost Mine, and Highway Man. The sewing kits I always bring were a big success, as were the hypodermic ink pens promoting the Diversion series.
I also gave out playing cards and lots and lots of candy. But mostly, I spent a few days among some of the greatest people in the world.
I'd like to share a few photos from the weekend.
