I went down there today to help promote the Toronto Romance Writers. If you'd stopped by, you might have met JK Coi or Tiffany Clare. Maybe you chatted with Kimber Chin, Storm Grant, or Mary Sullivan. (I must admit I would have loved to have stayed and chatted more with Mary and picked her brains about writing for Harlequin.) If you were lucky you introduced yourself to Harlequin's newest author Vicki Essex. Or were captivated by the effervescent Bonnie Staring, Erin G or Susan Daly. Or our lone male advocate Wayne. (Woot, Wayne! for daring to take on all that estrogen today.) (I left a couple last names as I wasn't sure if they wanted their real last names used on the blog and I didn't want to totally violate their privacy.) There were others there on the earlier or later shifts that I may have missed, so sorry if I did.

While I was there, fellow TRW member Kate Bridges was signing her books and she very graciously not only signed a book to me but also an extra one to give away here on the blog. So I'm going to invite Kate to be my guest so I can have a "I Heart Kate Bridges" Day and hold a contest for her book Alaska Bride on the Run.

I also snagged a couple of Mary Sullivan's fantastic SuperRomances. Mary writes cowboys -- see I'm not the only Canuck obsessed with the Texans. :) I'm going to try and arrange for her to be my guest too!
