GRL in Hot-Lanta

I flew in under the radar to GRL -- the GayRomLit Retreat in Atlanta. Despite not being registered as an author, I had a great time, and met lots of fans and other authors.

The Melia Hotel

 It all started with an opening reception sponsored by MLR Press, the fabulous publishers of the Mahu Investigations as well as several of my standalone M/M romances.

The ice sculpture was amazing, and the food was great, too.

 The party that night was really inspiring. Great scenery from the 25th floor party rooms. Oh, and the skyline of Atlanta wasn't bad either.
Thanks to Jade Buchanan for these pictures

The next day I headed out to Starbucks to write. I took these photos along the way.
A cool bell tower

I loved the way this archway works with the rest of the church.

Can't resist a construction shot!

The art deco style of this church worked beautifully.

I hope they restore this old building -- it has beautiful lines.

My amazing editor, Kris Jacen, all slinkified for the dress-up party.

Kris and Kendall in their costumes with me as a wizard.
I don't really know what these Brazilian dancers were doing there.

One more shot of the dancers...
