Well, the workshop is done, Jenna is on her way back home–poor girl has a seven-hour drive ahead of her–and Kate and I are kicking back until we can work up the energy to go out for supper. No faery ball for us, I think. We’re going to call it an early night and maybe get in a bit of writing done, or better yet, some reading from the yummy books we’ve picked up.The workshop went off without a hitch, and all our preparations showed. But while we were waiting, Kate spied a very good-looking, muscular man heading into the bathroom. Now, RT is known for very good-looking, muscular men roaming around, and I didn’t pay him much attention. But Kate got unusually excited for this one.
“I think that’s John–what’s his name? You know, that cover model?”
“Yeah, you know–John . . . “
I frown. “John DeSalvo?”
“YES. John DeSalvo!”
“He’s here? At RT?”
“Yes, he’s in the bathroom. I just heard the toilet flush. Let’s go. You can take a picture of us for the blog.”
My courage wavered. “But what if it’s not him?”
“It is. I’m SURE it is.”
She strode right up to him as he was walking out, and sure enough, he admitted he was indeed the famous cover model. And he was very gracious about having his picture taken with us.
And as we were putting out some leftover promos in Promotion Lane, lo and behold, Catherine Stang, one of our guest bloggers and frequent commenters on P & P, came up and re-introduced herself to me. We’d worked together 8 years ago on a regional conference–gosh, she was a name out of the past! Great to see you, Cathy!
Tomorrow, we’re going to do a bit of sight-seeing before I catch a late flight home. My new book, KIDNAPPED BY THE COWBOY, wasn’t available yet for the big Book Fair on Saturday, so I’m cutting the conference a day short.
Thanks so much for letting me share my day with you all!
