A great breakfast with a talk kicked off the 'official' conference on Saturday. Author F. Paul Wilson [The F. Paul Wilson Homepage]proved to be an entertaining speaker, and bookseller Molly Bolden [Bent Pages Bookstore & Coffeeshop, Houma, LA] was a hoot and a half.

Panel discussions filled the day. I moderated one with several editors and participated on another about the writing life. During the afternoon the New Orleans Romance Writers Chapter honored Heather. Although the booksigning happened on Sunday, I'm including a special shot with this group as my next post will feature Heather and the Slush Pile players.
