Hello, hello, hello! We're home! I'm safely ensconced back in upstate New York as of Saturday time for Buffalo Chicken wings, I might add! And Mimi is safely back in North Carolina as of Sunday evening!

Oh, and greetings and salutations to all my new readers from the conference! If you need help with blogging just email me!

Well folks I can't say enough about the conference. If you've never went to one, especially the GPCWC This wonderful lady pictured right below with me, Marlene Bagnull, did a fabulous job of setting up this conference. The schedule was full of so many interesting classes that Mimi and I never even had time to find a Phila Cheesesteak sandwich!

The GPCWC also has its Own Blog Check it out!

Ooh, ooh....this mysterious blonde in between Mimi and I, is none other than Kathryn Mackel. Remember we reviewed her latest book, The Hidden. Go check out the review on my Book Reviews in the top Navbar! Mimi and I took her three day Continuing Sessions course on Story Structure for Novelists. She taught us everything from Concept to Climax. And spent personal time with each of us and our manuscripts!

This little dark-haired beauty is none other than my friend and author, Lisa Samson She will have a new novel out soon called Straight Up. She's got 16 novels out's doing something right! I call her my Bohemian friend...*sigh* I probably should change that since she cut off all her long blonde hair and went au natural...Oh, well...Lisa...babe...BACK UP YOUR HARDDRIVE!...ROFLOL!

This tall gentleman with the mustache is William K Jensen, the literary agent!

While this gentleman is none other than Terry Whalin, the fiction acquisitions editor at Howard Books. I'm holding up his Book Proposals That Sell. Believe me when I say, if you want a leg up on the competition, this is a book that you need!

And this darling girl, is Jennifer Peterson. The Senior review editor for Peterson Ink, the inhouse publishing company responsible for Heartsong Presents line of Barbour Books. She is just delightful...and thanks again Jenn, for the help with the prologue!

So here we sit, tired and happy...and with funny, glowing eyes from the camera! We met so may cool people that I can't even name them all, but Jeff Edmondson...Yikes! LOL...sorry Jeff, I just realized what I said on your tape!, Julie Smith, Bryan Davis, Wanda Dyson, Patricia Haley, Cec Murphey, Joyce Moccero, and Pam Halter (I know she has a blog! Mimi, what's the address??) top the list!

    Bonnie, I MISSED you!
    Love these pictures, natural, none of that awkward, artificial posing. (Bet they wouldn't dare, you'd swat them)
    How nice to have you back.

    I'm finally awake after 12 hours of sleep! As soon as I get the boys to and from swimming lessons, I'm revamping my first and last chapters and they will be off to Bill!

    I'm still catching my breath on the awe of knowledge gained from the conference.

    Oh, I'm not sure of Pam's blog address...maybe she is at Marlene's blog links?

    Sounds like you had a great time. Glad y'all made it back safely. I was beginning to think we might have to send a search party or something. :)

    Glad you're back. I missed you. These are great photos, but they're pixely. Do you have any of better quality you can ship me in email?

    That's too bad about the cheesesteak. A good one is really a treat. It's the bread.
    David Meigs said...
    I can tell that you two had a great time. It’s too bad about the cheese steak though.

    Tell us more about all the happenings. I bet you've got some stories.

    I enjoyed the pictures, although the gleam in the eyes in that last one reminded me of a flick about aliens or something.

    Welcome back!

    I love all these pictures, Bonnie!

    It looks like a lot of fun to go to one of these conferences, not to mention informative. I haven't written any books, though!

    Maybe I could go as a writer's conference groupie?
