The Salem Trip -- Post 2 "The Betties Rule"

One of the best parts of my recent trip to the NECRWA conference in Salem was getting to meet some of the fabulous women from Lucy March's blog. Lucy, who is actually author Lani Diane Rich, is a warm, friendly, smart, beautiful, and extremely cool woman. Who has brought together a lot of other women who are the same--The Betties. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to and check it out.)

Meeting Lani in person was a real treat, and getting to hang out with her, honorary Betty-and-famous-author Anne Stuart (aka Krissie), and Betties Kate George (who ran the conference with aplomb and skill), Delia, and Megan was the icing on the cake. (Bacon-flavored, of course).

There was a lot of laughter and some serious author talk along the way--watching Lani and Krissie giggle was practically worth the price of admission, all by itself. Betties rule.

Thanks for sharing the adventure with me, ladies. Y'all are the bomb.


  1. That was so much fun. I'm still waiting on Betty-Con, though. :) Also, that picture makes me feel like Gulliver.

  2. What beautiful, inspiring women. I feel blessed to know of you all.

  3. Thanks!

    Delia - I'm tall, so I like to see a Taller Betty. In blogland everyone appears to be the same height. ;-)
