RWA Red Carpet

The RWA National Conference in New York City is behind us now, and I think I speak for all the Super authors when I say that a blast was had by all. Rather than tell you how amazing everything and everyone was, I'm going to let these pictures speak for themselves.


We begin with a blackmail shot - er, I mean, a candid photo - of the Superromance editors rehearsing a dance number for the Harlequin party.
Then it was off to the Waldorf Astoria ...
... for the Harlequin Black and White Ball!

Nan Dixon was there


So were Jules Bennett (Desire and Special Edition author), Joanne Rock (Superromance), Danica Favorite (Love Inspired Historical) and Dana Nussio (Superromance)

Nan Dixon, Pamela Hearon, and Anna Sugden
Jeannie Watt, in a dress she made - yes - herself. The pattern was from 1960. It stood up well, methinks.

Pamela Hearon, Cathryn Parry, and Angel Smits


The Starlight room before the dancing began

Another shot of the Starlight room. Claire McEwen is in the black top and white tutu.

Nan toasts us as we depart the party and head to the Rita & Golden Heart awards ceremony
Claire McEwen, Pamela Hearon, Angel Smits and Janet Lee Nye with their Super fans, ready to cheer for our Rita finalists.

Yes, Jeannie Watt made this dress as well, this time from a 1952 pattern. Isn't she amazing?
Here's a better shot of those Super fans (made by Janet Nye, that talented woman), being put to good use by Pamela Hearon and Angel Smits.

My favorite picture of the entire conference - the Superromance authors who made it to the Meet and Greet session. Smart, funny, talented, and dedicated, these women rock the publishing world.

Jeannie does well with her dresses. I give people wearing all white to that black and white party a lot of credit. I don't do white as I'd have it dirty in no time!

kris said...

Snookie, you are so right about wearing all white. I would have things dirty probably before I even put them on :-)

Jeannie consistently amazes me.

Penney, next year it will be in San Diego. Is that close to Riverside?

Kaelee said...

Lovely pictures. I love Jeannie's dresses . No chance that anyone will have the same dress. She sure is talented.

Laurie said...

Wow!! Looks like you all had so much fun. I like seeing authors enjoying themselves for all of the hard work they do to bring joy to their readers. Thank you!!

Pamela Hearon said...

LOVE Jeannie's dresses!!! I'm sure I caught a glimpse of the Fabulous Kris Fletcher in a couple of those photos ... didn't I???

JanetLee said...

It was so amazing! Thanks everyone for making my first RWA convention as a Harlequin author so wonderful!

Cathryn Parry said...

Thanks, Kris, I love these photos, and it was nice to remember how much fun we had. (And Jeannie, as always, you amaze me with your talent!) :-)

I'm catching up a little after heading into major drafting mode! These pictures brought back all the fun and excitement of RWA and meeting the wonderful SuperRomance writers! Thanks for pulling this together!
