Yep, I’m home, and would love to post a long newsy blog about RT, but honestly, jet lag is setting in (in a big way) and the computer screen is swaying before my eyes.
So, instead of telling you everything now, and messing up the blog post, I’m gonna take the liberty of directing you to Jayne Rylon’s Blog.
She has some brilliant piccies up that just highlight the amazing time we had.
I promise to return in a couple of days, when my thoughts are clearer, and Full House has released, and tell you more.
In the meantime, click here for Jayne’s blog.
Ooh, I’m being very lazy here.
See the ARRA have put up such an easy, concise post about the winners of the ARR Awards 2010, I thought I’d just copy and post their blog

That’s pretty awesome news, huh?
Color me happy.
So, I’m not sure if you know, but this weekend is the big Lori Foster event in the States. Five of the members of International Heat will be there, and four won’t. If, like me, you’re one of those who is not going, don’t despair. We have a way for you to enjoy the weekend too….
International Heat is giving away a cool prize…
We’ve put together an amazing bag of goodies for one lucky commenter. All you have to do is leave a comment on any of the IH posts dated between the 30th of May and Sunday the 7th of June. On Monday, June 8th we will draw a winner! The more days you post, the better your chances of winning.
You might be asking yourself what’s in the bag. Okay, I’ll tell you! Drum Roll… It’s a tote bag with Val’s lovely IH logo on front and it will be choc a block full with surprises from Lori’s event. To sweeten the deal, each of the IH women have thrown a lovely treat in from their part of the world. There might even be ebooks from the IH authors. But how will we get them all in the bag? Hmm…. you’ll have to leave a comment and hope you’re the winner to find out.
