Getting Excited…

RWA is less than a week away ladies and gents and I am getting excited.  I feel like I have so much to do beforehand yet all this ‘little’ tasks can take so much of your time.

Part of the problem is the construction going on all over the city roads. One day the road is clear, the next you’re waiting behind twenty or so cars trying to get through another construction zone.   The odd thing is there have been quite a few rather large sinkholes popping up here and there.  You always see this type of thing in sci-fi movies but you never think it could happen to you.  Could you imagine seeing the car directly in front of you just disappear.  Gone.  Nada.  Kaput.  If you aren’t tail gating (you know who you are !) and have quick enough reflexes to stop your vehicle before you end up joining the other less fortunate car ahead of you, you’re probably sitting in your car breathing hard with a mixture of relief and shock.  At that point you may find the more disturbing scenes from War Of The Worlds coming to mind (I would).  Once you get over your own imaginings and come to realize that the world is not ending or being attacked by hostile aliens, you may even call someone for help so the poor guy in the sink hole isn’t trapped there indefinitely.

Hmm… I wonder if his/her boss would believe them when they call work to tell them why he/she couldn’t make it in today.  I can just hear it, “I’m sorry but I can’t make it in to work today.  The earth opened up and swallowed my car… with ME in it.”

Love to hear that conversation.


Yes, I do do a LOT of singing and my new guy pal sings along with me.  This is very strange for me as I’m used to looks of annoyance from innocent bystanders but I dig it.  That’s the one thing about friendship, you never know what will pop out once you crack open that egg.  This time I got a goody, someone that gets my quirks.  Me likey.

I wish all of you a fantastic year too.  So many people are wishing this for me today that I feel compelled to wish it back.  My hope if that this year is the best ever… at least until the next year rolls around!  <G>

Enjoy the lovely weekend weather my friends.


I am getting excited!  Yes, I will be going to the RWA conference and looking forward to signing all those lovely copies of my books that you have.

I have been told that The Reluctant Vampire, Hungry For You, The Countess and The Heiress will be available at the Literacy For Life book signing.

At the Avon book signing I was told I’d have Love Bites and The Hellion & The Highlander to sign.

Also reason I am so excited about this trip… I love New York City.  It’s always been so much fun.  I also get a chance to see my editor (Yay Erika!) and my agent (Jenny rocks!) so it’s going to be a big chatfest.

So I hope the Big Apple is ready for us, meaning myself, my posse and you my wonderfully light-hearted readers, cause we’re a-comin regardless!  <G>


Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!

It looks like this years RWA Conference will take place in the happiest place in earth… Yes, I do mean Orlando, Florida.  The city caters to many lovely features including warm weather, pleasant retirees and … wait for it… Walt Disney World!

However it is too bad about the reason it had to be moved from Nashville, TN.  The flood that struck that area produced a lot more damage than initially suspected so the Opryland Hotel (which was under 10 feet of water last I read) will not be able to maintain guests until late August.  ;-(

I hope that area bounces back quickly and maybe in a few years we can see the beautiful city of Nashville hosting an RWA conference.

Have a lovely day everyone!


Cinco De Mayo!

Yes, I have returned to the land of the living and can blog again… LOL. 

Sorry about the delay in blogging but I think part of the problem is that there are so many social networks out there now, you tend to loose track at times.  Well, at least I do.  With Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, my forum, my website, my newsletter, trying to keep up with all the requests I get for blogs and interviews on other sites and trying to hold down my day job of writing, sometimes it gets pretty tough to keep up.

I, too, am celebrating Cinco De Mayo today but not in the way others might.  Since I have decided to cut out caffeine (cause it does so many horrible things to you) and am generally eating healthier, my festivities will include decaf coffee with a cinnamon spice flavoring, melt in your mouth oriental chicken and last but definitely not least, creamy cheesecake with fruit topping!  A nice dinner enjoying a nice conversation.  Who could ask for more?  <G>

I hope you have a lovely cinco de mayo and I will chat with you soon!  😉


Deadlining here

Sorry guys, meant to get those pics up but then I got corrections and proofs and of course I have an end of month deadline I’m scrambling to get done now, so it will be the beginning of September before I get the rest of the pics up now. Hope everyone is well.
