RWA 2010, Wednesday, Literacy Autographing

Flying sure does make me tired. I spent most of yesterday feeling very slow and inefficient at everything, and eventually gave up and went back to my room and slept. I feel much better now!

Here are some pictures of folks that I took at the beginning and end of the signing, when I had a little time to wander around and see people myself.

Luckily, for the Literacy Autographing, all I had to do was sit down and talk to people. I can do that for a while even while tired. But the best part of the signing? Leia Rice had her e-reader, and I got to sign The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover with a stylus! I've signed my first e-book! Alas, the photo doesn't show my autograph very well. But I am still thrilled.

My editor stopped by and I got to chat with her; I also got to meet, for the first time, a representative from the German publisher of The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover in translation. It was lovely to be able to tell her in person how much I like the edition's dust jacket.

Also, I got to sit next to Beverly Jenkins! That was really cool.


  1. Who is this cute person?!

  2. (a) Leia Rice, you are adorable and (b) I didn't know one COULD sign an e-reader with a stylus. I need to be learning these things right quick!

  3. I didn't know, either! Though apparently, it only works with a Sony at the moment.

  4. It's a particular Sony model (or possibly more than one). Alas, my Sony doesn't allow that. That is totally what I'm upgrading to though!

  5. I wish all the readers allowed it! I could totally scribble on every page. *whistles innocently*
