The Paranormal Romance Guild was invited back to help celebrate
the 25th Anniversary of the
Annual Vampire Masquerade Ball,
with our Authors signing at the Boutique Du Vampyre,
and conducting an Author panel at Undeadcon!
We had a fabulous time
and would like to thank everyone
who helped to make this event a success!
Sorry it has taken me so long to update my page... as you know, I was invited to attend the Anne Rice - Vampire Lestat - Fan Club's 24th annual Vampire Ball and UndeadCon over the Halloween weekend for events, booksigning, and a Q&A Panel with The Paranormal Romance Guild.
The events were wonderful, but unfortunately Hurricane Sandy caused my flight home to be cancelled and left me stranded in New Orleans for a bit longer than planned. Not that New Orleans is a bad place to be if I was going to get stuck somewhere ;-)
It was difficult though, to have my husband and children at home in New York, battening down the hatches and sleeping in the basement with flashlights, while I was out having fun. I have never taken a trip without them before, ever...and this is when disaster decides to strike...talk about having a guilty conscience! Luckily, my family and house are safe and sound, and I'm back home again. Things were a bit messy and chaotic here for a while, with downed trees, electricity outages and a major gas shortage on Long Island, but it's all settled down now.
I was thrilled to have been invited to attend the Vampire Ball - as a fan of Anne Rice, it is something I have always wanted to do, and to attend as an author was awesome! It was great to meet so many people who love the genre as I do, and it was a lot of fun! I'll be posting all of the pictures in the photo gallery.
It was great to be able to meet and have fun with the other authors and members of the Paranormal Romance Guild. These are people I have known online and shared advice and experience with for over 3 years now, and it was so cool to finally hang out with them in person. I especially love meeting readers, and hope they had fun at the events as well! I hope to attend again next year!~ Melanie
