What's up party people!? Day 2 has come and gone and damn was it exciting. Here are my twitter cliff notes of the madness:
|YA: The Writing Life|
Panelist(s): Zoraida Cordova, Lorraine Heath (aka Rachel Hawthorne), Justine Larbalestier,
Christina Lauren, Mari Mancusi and Lissa Price
This was an excellent panel. Justine Larbalestier and Lauren Billings were hilarious. Mari Mancusi shared an emotional story that had me wanting to flip tables. Main takeaway: Authors are not your bitches people!
|Paranormal: Happily Ever After - Writing Beyond the Kiss|
Panelist(s): Ilona Andrews (Ilona & Gordon Andrews), Rachel Aaron (aka Rachel Bach),
Kresley Cole, Jennifer Estep, Diana Pharaoh Francis, Chloe Neill and Kerrelyn Sparks
I was in total fangirl mode for this one. I was in the same room with Ilona & Gordon Andrews and it took everyone once of willpower to keep it contained on the inside. This was another excellent panel. It was fun getting to hear the authors talk about the relationships between their heroines and heroes.
|The Care and Feeding of Authors|
Panelist(s): Ann Aguirre, Rachel Caine, Molly Harper, Chloe Neill, Nicole Peeler and Jaye Wells
This was, by far, my favorite panel of the day. These ladies had amazing chemistry and were flipping hilarious. Ann Aguirre busted out a unicorn hat for goodness sake. It doesn't get any better than that.
|Taste of Texas Romance Rodeo|
There was a mechanical bull onsite and they were serving alcohol. Enough said.
