Catching up on a Holiday Weekend

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

Since I have tomorrow off, I get to sleep in. Yay! I have various bits of news to report, in no particular order.

I’ve been working on The Next Paranormal and it’s going pretty well right now. Some very good ideas starting to gel. It’s early days yet, of course.

The RWA National Conference is coming up. If you’re going to be in Washington DC on Wednesday July 15, drop by the Marriott for the Literacy Signing. It’s for a good cause! Please stop by the J section to keep me from feeling too lonely.

On July 24, I’ll be at the Hachette Books booth at Comic Con in San Diego. They’re giving away copies of My Forbidden Desire and I’ll be there to sign them! If you’re going to be there, by all means, come by and get a free signed book. Personally, I’m hoping some of the True Blood folks will be there. I should be able to wander around a bit and see some stuff.

I’ve given up on the old and creaky Dell laptop and went to the Apple store to buy a 13″MacBook Pro, which I did, only they’re out of stock and now I’m just praying mine arrives BEFORE I leave for Nationals because the thought of lugging the current laptop to DC gives me hives. I’ve committed to Apple and now I’m impatient to make the switch completely and utterly. Everyone cross your fingers for a delivery prior to 7/14 because I have a very early flight.

Twitter has been hellaciously fun lately. Oh my gosh. @barryEisler is being the world’s best sport about what is probably the world’s most egregious and embarrassing typo ever. By me. I meant to type spill his guts… with respect to the expected conversation I hope to have when I get to have lunch with him due to my winning lunch w/him at Brenda Novak’s auction. But what I type was spill his guys… Much hilarity has followed. @VictoriaDahl has been particularly bold, sassy and amusing.

And now I’m off to get some work done before I go to bed.
