I just returned home from four wild days at RomCon Convention in Colorado Springs, and I have some fun photos to share with you.


Here’s the view from the patio of my hotel room. The lighter mountain peeking up over the back is Pikes Peak. I sat and stared over morning coffee every day.

Friday was High Noon at the Cowboy Corral at RomCon. From left to right – Paty Jager, Lorelei James, me, Cowboy Tyler, Helen Hardt, Cynthia Woolf, and Donna Michaels. They’re a wonderful bunch of ladies and I’m so excited to have worked with them to put on the Corral event. Each of the reader participants went home with a book or two, a magnetic photo frame, and a picture of them with Cowboy Tyler on their camera. Six lucky ladies also received a basket of goodies from one of us. Thanks to all of you who attended!

Here’s Christi, my dear online (and now live) friend who lives in Colorado Springs. She generously agreed to be the Cowboy Helper for our event. Her job was to take all the pictures, but before the event started, poor Christi was asked by Cowboy Tyler to rub some oil on his back. That wonderful, sweet girl really took one for the team!

Christi brought along her incredibly organized friend, Heather. Without her help, I know the event wouldn’t have gone half as smoothly as it did. Heather got some quality cowboy time, too. Um, where is your right hand, Heather!?!

Friday night was the Naughty Bachelorette Party. And it was really, really naughty! Here I am playing Dirty Pictionary. Other games included Penis Ringtoss, Condomize the Banana, Dick Cakewalk, and Have an Orgasm.

Saturday, Paty Jager, Lorelei James, and I snuck out and hit the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. Lorelei was very excited to see the statue of Casey Tibbs, a cowboy from her corner of the world.




Gettin’ ready to climb onto a bull. Okay, the bull was only in my imagination, but that’s why I’m a writer!




I’ll admit I had a few fangirl moments. Here I am cozying up to Megan Hart.

Saturday night was Casino Night, sponsored by my publisher, The Wild Rose Press. Here I am with Sarah Hudler, our blackjack dealer Robert Wagner, and Rhonda Valverde. We had the wildest table in the casino. So much fun!.

It was a great event, and I made a lot of wonderful new friends. I’m looking forward to RomCon 2014!

      It was fun, but tiring, Melissa. Hopefully next year we can both go and have wild fun together.

      I’ve heard, off the record, that next year’s will be back in Denver, so much easier (and cheaper) to get to. Let’s start saving our pennies!

      Thanks, Ronnie, so many people sent me pictures of myself that I didn’t know I was in. Some of them are pretty bad! Yikes – I’ve gotta be more careful! LOL

    Oh, that looks like it was so much fun (although I would probably have been constantly blushing, lol). That is so nice of Christi to take on such an onerous chore (snicker). Thanks for sharing!

      Too much fun. I slept 11 hours last night! You know, after a while, we all stopped blushing and just grinned. Yes, brave, wild Christi! We were all so damn jealous!!!

    Looks like an Awesome time was had by all. I guess I’ll have to see about making it in 2014, as that will probably be the closest convention to me.
    Glad you had a great time.

    What a wonderful time you had! I really like that statue and the scenery. And indoors looked just as good!

    You all looked as if you had an awesome time… of course coming from across the pond we never get the chance to attend anything like this… feeling a little jealous !!!

    Hey, I see me! It was so good to finally meet you Randi! Now I have a voice to go with the notes you send me lol, and I will hear your accent in my head! That’s for sure! 🙂
