Saturday and final day at the conference!

Got up early this morning and helped out with the Editor/Agent appointments. That is fast and very interesting. My four hours went by fast and I got to see a few of the editors and agents. (Chris Keesler from Dorchester is hot! He could grace the covers of his own books)

Saturday during conference week is always when attendees are winding down because they're tired and anxious to get home. I did manage to get in a workshop in the afternoon and attended some booksignings. (these are publisher hosted and they give out free books) Tor was giving away arcs and I grabbed a couple. One is an arc for an April 2009 release. (Ask me about it in chat next time you see me but you are not getting it! :) )

The hotel is bustling with an incoming conference as we are all preparing to leave. On top of that, there is the SF Marathon tomorrow morning. Oy! We did manage to find a place to eat dinner before we got ready for the.....

...RITA awards!!!

This is where everyone puts on the glitz and glams up after days of trudging around the hotel. It started on a high note and continued onward for two hours. I won't list every winner here, but you can find the list here.

Afterwards, everyone gathered for a post ceremony dessert reception and chatting. I congratulated Madeline Hunter and Kristan Higgins for their wins. Now onward to the bars for more celebrating.

Tomorrow....home!
