I-Spy Report from Jill Shalvis

Well, I'm here and alive, but not COOL, that's for sure.

I can't stop sweating. Oh, wait. Women don't sweat, we glow. Uh huh. I'm aglowing plenty, let me tell you.

But look who I found at the literacy signing. Isabel Swift, VP of author and asset development, fun and smiling as always...




I have lots and lots more pics coming up on my blog so tune in when you can.

Your fearless RWA reporter,
Jill Shalvis

Cool Jill! I was at the big signing (went downtown for the day), but totally missed you somehow. Lots of chaos in that signing room...LOL. Plus it was my first big signing so I was a bit overwhelmed.

Great report! I'll be watching for the next one.

I did NOT get my business wear back, I compromised and let them keep those outfits. They were winter outfits anyway, lol!

And yep, that's me glowing away ...

I'll send a post with more pics later, I have lots more!

Lori said...

Jill
It is so darn hot everywhere. I know that I have been glowing like crazy these days too.
I hope that you are having tons of fun in Atlanta and thanks for taking the time to drop in to Lucy's amazing blog party.

Carol said...

I can't wait to see all the pictures, Jill! Hope you are having a great time!

Jennifer L. said...

My mom used to tell me to think cool thoughts. My interpretation of that is to drink cool drinks (alchocol prefered, but optional)

Jennifer Y. how do you do it? You are simply everywhere and its not fair! Please overlook my jealous rant. So, which authors did you meet and what was signed?

Deborah Chan said...

Have Fun but no too much, lol

Shuck Ying said...

I will I was there. Have a great time.

That's cool Jill! I wish I could be down there. I have never been to one of those events before. Maybe next year. :)

Joyce said...

For those of us who couldn't go, we really want to hear how it is going.

Hi Jill! Yep, you do have a glow about you. :-D

I always check out your blog. Your everyday life fascinates me. LOL

ShelMel said...

Thank you for the report! I know Atlanta is hot - I'm two states over and it's HOT here, too. LOL You'll never get used to it though... just part of living in the extreme south. Enjoy your trip and I hope you got your suits back from the girls! :)

Thanks for the report Jill. So nice of you to share. I stopped over at your blog a few minutes ago. You are so lucky Jennifer Y. I wish I could have gone too but now that I am in my last trimester of pregnancy i am staying away from travelling as much as possible. Just too hard on me.

Lucy Monroe said...

Oooh, Isabel is a cool chick! Can I say that without singeing myself with one of my pubs? The thing is, she's entered the blogging world. (I've got a link to her blog in my sidebar for anyone who wants to hop over and get to know the VP better.)

Thanks for the report and the pic, Jill!!!

Jennifer Y. said...

It was fun and huge! I didn't get to meet all of the authors that I wanted to though...there were so many people there!
