RWA 2012 RITA Awards VIDEOS including OCC's own Tessa Dare along with Joanna Bourne and Ann Aguirre by Jina Bacarr

Even Sleeping Beauty wouldn't have gotten a wink of sleep at the RWA 2012 Conference in Anaheim near Disneyland. I didn't. I was as busy as the Mad Hatter running from workshop to workshop and shooting video. Lots of video. 12 GB worth. That's 12 billion bytes as in billion.

This week I'm going to spotlight three of my favorite RITA award winners, beginning with OCC's own TESSA DARE!!  Super congrats, Tessa, well deserved.

Now if you'll excuse me, like Snow White's dwarf, Sleepy, I'm...going to...take a nap...zzzzzzzzzzz

Best,
Jina
