Hey Peeps!

I know it's really been a while now, but things are crazy hectic. Just so much to do. Last weekend, I did the St. Louis Book Festival as planned. However, I hadn't expected to be in the midst of another revision, so I was knocking that out too. Got it Thursday and spent that night and all day Friday doing the edits. It was pretty much all line edits, which requires just adding commas here, changing a word there, deleting that, and rearranging this. So, no scene creations or anything...simple stuff. But a lot of stuff. So, when I say, I edited all day, I mean, ALL DAY! Don't know what time I started, but I remember finishing at 10:30PM and my bottom was hurting!! LOL I sat on the sofa, so it was soft. But I guess sitting in that position for so long got to me. Anyway, I got it done, Friday night, but then I had to find time to print it out, burn a CD, package it, then ship it overnight. Worked all that around the 2-day festival and shipped it off Sunday morning. Feels good.

Now, all I need to do is make it through a signing in Memphis, TN this weekend and my busy October will be complete. I had events every weekend. I'll be at home the next few weekends before heading to Baltimore for signings Thanksgiving weekend. The biggest shopping weekend of the year! Yep, I'm going to need some rest for that. Because it's going to be a challenge trying to shop in between signings. LOL

I can't imagine all the details! Wow!

Hope you are enjoying it though, it's all part and parcel of being a novelist!

Hey Teri!
Yes, it's a wonderful thing. And you know, my friends are starting to believe that I do a little more than watch TV and eat bon bons all day! LOL

Hey Foxy!
I'd like to thing that means that they're sold out in the places that you looked. That's what I'd like to think! LOL If you can't find one, contact me and we can make arrangements to get you an autographed copy from me. ;-)

Hi Cherlyn,
I didn't get to the book fair until Sunday at 12:30. Walked around and didn't see you...my employees told me that there were six authors there on Saturday. I left around 1:30. It was too cold and it started hailing. So sorry that I missed you but I know you are going to sign somewhere around here soon and I going to make it my business to meet you. Have fun signing in Tennessee.

You're doing a signing on Thanksgiving weekend??? Come on, Twin - you do have an "Off" button, right?

Sounds exciting to me! Hope you have a wonderful time.

Shelia,
You know how it goes!

Rose,
Hey, sorry I missed you. It was cooold on Sunday. I came after you and left early. I hear they're going to move it up to the first weekend in October next year. So it'll have a chance for warmer weather and a better turnout. Don't worry, we'll cross paths soon!

Hey Twin!
I think the off button is jammed right now! LOL Gotta get that thing fixed!

Hello T'bou,
I had a great time. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
