Around the World: 2012 GRL in Albuquerque

First of all, what probably everyone is waiting for, the winners of the final giveaway for the 2012 GRL. And the giveway goes to...

1 Prize, 100 ebooks... live_laugh_love!

2 Prize, eCupid DVD... Karen Johnson!

3 Prize, Is It Just Me? DVD... Ryan Field!

And now some highlights of this convention. Very happy to had the chance to know better Helen Beattie, Tracy Ward and Amy DiMartino (and Jared/Jacob), you made these days special; enchanted to shared some touring with Geoff Knight and his mom Cheryl, you are both so sweet and kind; glad I had the chance to chat with Venona Keyes, who shared with me, Helen, Geoff and his mom our escapade from the crazy crowd in the timeless Acoma Pueblo; KC Burn and her silent husband were wonderful companion on our trips to Santa Fe and Albuquerque; I think I bored to death Jeff Adams and his husband but they were always with a smile for everyone; meeting B.G. Thomas, Edmond Manning and Mike Murphy was delightful; chatting with Andrew Grey and his partner was so sweet and brought back good memories when I was still able to read all Gay Romances out there; even if for little time, talking with Eric Arvin, Barry Brennessel and his husband was an highlight of this convention; a sweet arrivederci to my breakfast companions, J.P. Barnaby and Rowan Speedwell; very grateful to Ethan Day, Heidi Cullinan and Damon Suede, that, other than organizing a perfect convention, were always very ready with a smile and a hug.

In a few weeks I maybe will announce a news regarding next year GRL that will be in... ATLANTA!

And now enjoy the pictures, but be careful, there are more than 100!
