Saturday Fun


I SAW MY BOOK ON A SHELF! I have to tell you it was the coolest feeling to walk into Barnes & Noble for my friend’s booksigning and see my book “Charmed & Ready” on the shelf right next to “Charmed & Dangerous.” They look so cute together. :-) The book isn’t due out until Sept. 5, so it was a big surprise to see it there. And I sold one while I was there at Von’s booksigning. I took it over to show them, and Kelley from the DFW Tea folks was there. She was so excited it was out, she had to have it right then. Totally made my day. So I’ve autographed the first copy of “Charmed & Ready” and it felt mighty good.

The early part of the day was spent teaching Dream Big, Write Big, Get Published with Britta at the Flower Mound Writer’s Conference. What a great group of folks. They were a pleasure and had some great questions. And they all bought books, which Britta and I both love. Teaching that particular workshop always makes me want to come home and write, but I’m making myself take the weekend off.

I actually have MONO… LOL… I know. It’s my fourth time around with this stuff. I wear myself out and then it hits me upside the head. Soooo, I’m cutting back from 14 hour days to 10 hour days and I’ll try to take as much of the weekends off as I can for a few weeks. And I’m going to try and eat the right foods. Blah, blah, blah. I have something every weekend until mid-December, but most of the time it’s just a class here or a book signing there. No big.

Which reminds me– If you are anywhere near the vicinity on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2006, at the North Richland Hills TX Barnes & Noble, I’ll be signing Charmed & Ready at the first official signing. You better come see me. :-) Oh, from 2-4 p.m. We’ll have food and lots o’ fun. And if you feel like wearing a tiara, you are certainly encouraged. I’m going to sit my butt on the couch now and read fashion and home mags the rest of the evening. Party on mono girl!

  1. Woohoo!!! My primary online supplier has it in stock, too! Looks like I may be making another book order sooner than anticipated. :)

    *hugs* on the mono. Kicking back and reading magazines sounds like a great plan!
