What's going on! Nothing.. it's only Thursday

So a week ago today I was super excited about AAD a week later.. sitting at my desk.. again.. and blogging. What's new that happened. Well... the planning for AAD 2010 is going to start soon. I'm super excited about that. Also planning on what cons to go to next year. AAD is a for sure thing. Stella would kill me if I don't. Then I don't know if I want to do RT again this year. *shrug* The jury is stil out on that one batman.

I have been in contact with the fabulous authors from AAD. They are so cool... I mean as a fan and reader its comparable to meeting a super star. But they are so done to earth that its so easy to talk to them. Okee anywho... my group on Shelfari has picked the book of the month and it happens to be Jennifer Armintrout's new series. So the group has spoken and we will be reading Queene of Light and Child of Darkness for November. If you would like to check out my group... go to and look for the group Just the Vamps. I have it locked down to due VERY adult material. Stella Price, Jennifer Turner and Jaye Wells are members of this group and I have extended the invitation to Jennifer Armintrout, Joey Hill and Mima to the group. Cross fingers that they come and play.

Also... I am mod of another group called Shadow Heights...

Come and play with me...

I heard some fantastic news from Sunny that there will be a single author anthology for her Mona Lisa series. That's super cool!

Okee I think I am done... for now... must go and do some work!

Let's get started!

Okee since I read and have started to attend convos I thought why the heck not, let's start a blog since I spend a lot of my time on Shelfari.. why not waste more time :-) Just kidding. Where to start.. okee... SO this past year so far has been pretty awesome when it comes to the reading world. I have met SOOOOO many awesome people from all over the world that share my passion of reading paranormal romance & urban fantasy books.

This year at the last minute, I decided to take a trip down to the Romantic Times (RT) Convention down in Orlando, Florida. I decided to go.. oh 10 days before the event. I truly went to see some people: Renee, Marcella and Tash. I got a bonus that I also met Rhonda, Marissa, Kerry, Suzanne and my very close friend now.. author Stella Price (1/2 of the writing team of Stella and Audra Price). Also, during that time I got to met my FAVORITE authors too such as Jeaniene Frost.. I SO FAN GIRL HER, Joey W Hill.. the nicest person EVER!... Larissa Ione.. so cool and also Jocelyn Drake, Melissa Marr, Mark Henry, Sunny.. OMG.. so many to name. It was good times, got signed book from them all!

After that... more and more reading. During that time, I developed a group called Just the Vamps on Shelfari. My friend Amy who lives on an island in the pacific stayed back and held down the fort there. I devoured so many books and yes, I have a book addiction.

After RT, Stella and I talked ALL the time and I got the priveldge to read her and Audra's rough works. A reader's dream come true I tell ya! Stella was prepping for her own convo called Author's After Dark Paranormal Weekend. Girl worked her ASS off along with putting out a few books during that time too! She IS the Tazamanian Devil!

Well with all that.. AAD was this past weekend in Suffern, NY. My girl Renee and Suzanne made it to the event. Marcella was suppose to come over from Ireland but she got sick and was not able to make it. SO SAD! To sum it up.. the weekend was AWESOME! It was small and intimate and you know what.. IT WAS AWESOME! RT is really big and AAD, is very intimate and you get to really have one on one time with the authors. I AM JOEY HILL'S NEW FAN GIRL! I JUST LOVE HER! If you have not had a chance to read Stella & Audra Price's book or Joey Hill's books... WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Okee.. Let's start there and see if I can continue this blog...
