It’s day three of the Romance Novel Convention in Las Vegas, and it’s been a blast so far. Although my son is still in the hospital back home in Georgia, I’m a little calmer about not being there with him. I’ve been reassured that he does not have a fever or anything of that sort and is not sickly. He has a severe rash, and the doctors are trying to figure out what the source is. He is still smiling and acting like his normal self. At first I was imagining him sickly in the hospital and needing his mommy (or I need him), but he’s been too busy watching the television that he doesn’t even want to talk to me. It seems I’m not needed (breaking my heart).
Last night was the costume ball, and Melissa and I dressed as Alissia and Anika from Unexpected Metamorphosis. She was not happy about the unruly wig she had to wear, and the freaky, purple contacts I wore were NOT comfortable at all. Near the end of the ball, we went back to the room, and she got rid of the wig while it took thirty minutes for me to get those blasted contacts out of my eyes.
We’ve met some amazing women at the convention, and I’m learning a lot and getting some great ideas. I’m now considering writing a novella or two later throughout the Alissia Roswell series. That’s a drastic change from a novel, but I think I can manage the challenge.
This morning we had to leave our classes and began an evacuation in the hotel, but before we made it out the door, we found out that it was no cause for concern. The Starbucks downstairs had an accident with their blender, and it set off the alarm. Maybe it woke some of us up a little, because I know I’m starting to feel the lack of sleep from this week.
I’m posting some pictures, and I hope you enjoy. Also, I want you to meet some fellow fantasy authors. Please be sure to check them out.
Melissa was ready for the meet and greet party Wednesday night. Isn’t she cute!

The night of the ball. Although Melissa despised this wig and my purple contacts were killing me, it was a great night.
We tried to look like Anika and Alissia from Unexpected Metamorphosis, but this was the closest we could get. It didn’t go as well as I imagined. I promise Alissia looks so much better in the book 🙂
