The Romantic Times Conference finished up yesterdayThere were several Princesses in attendance. If you think this looks like a Where's Waldo drawing you would be right. There were thousands in attendance at the Giant Book Fair. Were you there? Can you find yourself in this crowd? Ha! Me, either. I can't find my own nose in a room that crowded.

Here's a closer but highly candid Where's the Princess photo. In this picture try to find Sylvia McDaniels, Kathleen Baldwin, and Chris Keniston. Oops! Chris stepped out of the photo. But she was there earlier. And so was Princess Liese Sherwood-Fabre.
Fun was had by one and all. There was line dancing with the Steampunk crowd, bull riding with the western writers.
And silly selfies, like this one with me and author Patience Griffin.
Tasting of savory and sweet delights; such as Bacon lollipops at the Meddlesome Moth, and this delicious fried cheesecake, which Princess Sylvia shared with me and our pal, author Kay Thomas. Yum!!
And here's Princess Phyllis at a scrumptious dinner with her editors and fellow authors at Soul Mate publishing.
On Saturday, we met readers, tons of readers. See top photo. We talked about our favorite stories and signed our books. Like my brand new release: A School for Unusual Girls, which New York Times Sunday Book Review said, "is enticing from the first sentence." They also said this... "Baldwin has an ear for period dialogue as she draws us into this world of sharp, smart young ladies who are actually being trained and deployed for the British war effort by the mysterious headmistress, Miss Stranje. It’s speculative historical fiction, with a trace of steampunk inventiveness..." And a bunch of other nice stuff.
So, I am a very happy Princess.

If you were at RT tell us what you did there? Who you met? What you ate... Did you ride the bull? Line dance. (I tried line dancing, but I didn't know how. So author Angi Morgan coached me.)
