#AmWriting, Book Title, and #Memphis

I have three different levels of good news to share with you today.  Good news – I finished Book 3 and sent it to my editor on Thursday.  Fantastic news – she sent it back to me on Saturday night!  Staci, you’re an editing rock star.  About damn time news – I think I have a title.  I’m mulling it over this week while doing edits, and I hope to share it with you next Monday.  Woohoo!!!

This past weekend, hubby and I traveled with friends to Memphis.  Half of us had visited before, but it was a new experience for the rest of us.  It didn’t start off in the most promising way.  On Wednesday, the IHG hotel we had reservations with emailed all of us.  Their AC was out, and we were instructed to call their customer service line for assistance.  Long story short, IHG needs some serious remedial training in customer service.  They were absolutely no help, and we were on our own to find another hotel.

Anyhoo, we made it, and Friday night was spent eating BBQ, dropping by the Peabody Hotel for dessert (you knew it had to be chocolate), and listening to music on Beale Street (sorry the pic’s so crappy).  Saturday, we toured Graceland.  I’m not an Elvis fan, but I was in the minority – hubby and a couple of friends with us were huge fans.  The grounds were beautiful, but the house is much smaller than you’d think.  Visitors were permitted to tour the first floor and basement, and the 70s decor (lots and lots of shag carpet!) brought back some memories of the house I grew up in.

If you’re thinking of traveling to Memphis, I’d highly recommend City Tasting Tours.  We chose the Arts District Food Tour, and it was sensational.  Not only were we treated to some delicious, appetizing food from four different restaurants, we learned fascinating details about the area and history of the district from Christina, our fabulous tour guide.  By the end, the six of us were well-stuffed, and had throughly enjoyed outselves.

Well – I’ll be busy on edits, acknowledgements, and a book description this week.  Happy writing and reading!

  1. YAY for the book progress… Especially having a title! I’m looking forward to the title reveal almost as much as I’m looking forward to getting to read the book. LOL!

    Glad you enjoyed your weekend, despite the hotel issue. I’m not a big Elvis fan either. I like his music, don’t get me wrong, but that’s about as far as it goes.

    1. I can’t believe it’s taken so long for the title, Tori. But then, this book has been more difficult to write than the other two – guess they’re all different.

      It was a fantastic weekend, even the Graceland part, lol.

  2. I can’t wait to learn the title for your new book!

    Sounds like the hotel glitch was more than a little frustrating, but I’m glad it didn’t ruin your trip. I’m never been to Graceland (I’m not an Elvis fan either) but I’ve heard multiple people who have toured the house remark on how small it was. Surprising!!

    1. It really was frustrating. A friend and I both called, and the message we got was basically ‘What do you expect us to do about it?’ But we perservered, and had a fantastic weekend.

      Believe it or not, I actually have a couple of titles to choose from now!

  3. Woot! I can’t wait to learn the title, Teri. Kudos on the editing milestone too.

    The tour sounds delicious. What a fun way to visit a city. Sorry about the hotel stress though. I’ve been inundated with customer service related problems the past couple of months…
    Now rest up from your getaway. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan! Just taking a break from edits. We took a food tour in NYC last summer, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. When we discovered Memphis offered tours, we were anxious to try it in a differernt city.
