I met a lot of people at RWA. Some in workshops, in corridors and seating areas, via mutual friends, over breakfast or at lunch. I'm listing some of the many business cards I collected. If you see your name here, give me a shout. :)
"Three hours had ripped away her past. His love promised her the future."
A gorgeous galactic card that really caught my eye.
We struck up a conversation in the main lobby when I noticed her space-themed tote bag and Donna turned out to be a fellow SFR writer. We had a great time with Sharon Lynn Fisher talking SFR, blurbs and plots over dinner and drinks.
"Dark Fantasy meets Modern Fairy Tale"
SHADOW BOUND: June 2010
A lovely fantasy-inspired business card in warm reds and yellows.

Love conquers all...which explains the scars.

Kim was a lucky local attending RWA. Wish they had them in Albuquerque.
Kimberly A. Lowe
A very patriotic card with an American flag background.
Fitting, since Kimberly is associated with RomVets (Romance-writing military Vets).

A very elegant card in ivory with a pen and pad.
The Reading Reviewer
A very classic card with an oil painting of a woman reading a book.

Another vertical card with Suza's photo and a catchy font for her info.
I saw Suza again and again at workshops. She was everywhere.

Very businesslike card.
I sat with Jean and Kimberly Lowe for one of the luncheons.
A two-sided business card with contrasting ivory and brown colors on each side, and a scroll and tome.
