In my quest to forget the abysmal awards ceremony and focus on the positive of the conference (it really was a very good conference, overall, and I had terrific fun almost all the time!), I've posted a pic of my editor and myself at the NRCA reception, complete with trophies and plaques. I do like trophies. :) I've also been doing a bit of writing, and started reading a new book that looks like it has some terrific potential--A Mind of Its Own: A Cultural History of the Penis by David Friedman.
I've heard the All About Romance site (http://www.allaboutromance.com) has more info about the RWA brouhaha, as well as posts of Jennie Crusie's letter, if you want to check it out.
