Congrats on the Linda Howard Award of Excellence!! Yipee!

And Cara - you too. What an honor.

Can't wait to learn more about Denver.


Pepper Basham said...

Congrats to you too. :-)

Tina M. Russo said...

Pepper, that was actually the 2008 Linda Howard. What brought that up?

Today we are going to Chick fil a!!!!

Ruth Logan Herne said...

Oh mylanta, Tina, way to go on resting on 2008...


What have you been doing since then, darling?

Pedicures? Manicures? Washing your hair?????

Okay, I'll stop picking on Tina now because she's giving me shelter this weekend so I really ought to be nice for TWO DAYS, right????

Bless her heart.

Loving Denver.

No cowboys sightings yet. Still looking. Avidly.


Okay, must get ready for CHICK FIL A!!!!!!

I can't wait.

Oh my stars, my FIRST Chick Fil A.



Pepper Basham said...

Oops, sorry Tina - I received the email from ContestDivas and it listed it as if it happened right now. Brilliant moment for me, eh? Congrats all the same and sorry for the mix up.

I was so tickled, because I actually recognized some names.

Tina M. Russo said...

Okay, we have had a girl day. Hit the Chick fil a drive through in our sweats and put the finishing touches on Seekerville bookmarks.

Now off to meet up with Seekers at the hotel and our evening excursion into Denver via light rail.

Gina Welborn said...

Now that's a snazzy list.

You rock, Mary!

Cathy Shouse said...

Can I chime in and say that our own "Indiana girl" Rachael Phillips was granted a book contract from Barbour at conference?

How cool is that??


Tina M. Russo said...

Well congratulations to Rachael.

Last night I had the pleasure of leading an expedition into Denver. They were all quite polite even when it become apparent I am direction challenged.

Our own Seekerville visitor Debra Marvin didn't even toss me in the tracks when she had the opportunity. What a gal!!

Larimer Square was lovely with twinkling lights, horse drawn carriages and a multitude of cafe's and bistros alive on the sidewalk.

We had the pleasure of meeting Revell debut author Dan Walsh and his lovely wife.

The booksigning is today, but I will be back after an airport run with pictures.

Tina M. Russo said...

We spotted Pamela Tracey, Darlene Buckholz, Lisa Jordan, Melanie Dickerson, Ginny Aiken, Carol Steward and Allie Pleiter at our after hours soiree.

Debra E Marvin said...

When a friend asked me by phone how I liked Denver, I said, "It could be Buffalo for all I know, I haven't been out of the hotel!"

Thanks to Tina, I got my chance last night. Thanks!

Now I'm off to stalk my dream agent and to seek the rest of my Seeker "Treasures!"

(Ruthy I saw cowboys at the airport. That was it. Oh well.)

Ruth Logan Herne said...


Why did our paths not cross, girlfriend???? I wanted to meet you!

I had to return to the cool beauty (not if you saw my yard, but that's another story entirely...) of WNY because I work the overnight at the bakery on Saturday/Sunday...

But only four more bakery shifts and then I'm home evenings, churning out deliciously wonderful romance for Steeple Hill and pondering just what kind of havoc I can cause within and outside of the pages of a manuscript.

Deb, I'm so glad you got to meet some of the gals. What a great city Denver is. Beautiful, beautiful. Mega thanks to Tina and Audra for housing me and carting me around. Love you guys.

Gotta go bake but CAN'T WAIT to see who won what!!!!! Come on, Seekers, near and far and all their wonderful, awesome friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And HUGE HUGGABLE congrats to Rachel on her Barbour contract! Yay!!!!!!!!!! Our own Mary-the-amazing Connealy got her start with an at-conference contract like that. SWEET!
