Highlights – Lora Leigh’s 2013 Reader Appreciation Weekend
I had a blast at the recent Lora Leigh’s Reader Appreciation Weekend bash!!
Lexi Blake and I traveled together from Texas to Maryland. After flying into Dulles, we drove the beautiful countryside from DC to Hagerstown. We were super excited to reach the convention, so we didn’t stop at even one of the many wineries along our route. They were awfully inviting, but we were good…for the moment.
The meet-and-greet sessions by the pool were one of the highlights of the trip for me. It’s always a joy to meet readers, visit, sign books, and take pictures.
Wonderful evening events of chatting and dancing included a princess-themed welcome bash, an awesome 80’s get together, and a pajama party! I saw so many old friends and met quite a few new ones. RAW is a smaller gathering that allows for lots of conversation and zaniness. And we took full advantage!
A highlight for me was Red Hot Pictionary. The author charade portion (mainly Lexi Blake, Mari Carr, Carrie Ann Ryan, and me!) put Pictionary into the over-the-top awesome category! Lots of laughter, tons of fun, and a little naughtiness ensued!
Hanging out with readers and fellow authors is always so much fun. Thank you to Lora for having me! A special thanks to all of the readers who made RAW 2013 so memorable!!
