Vacation was fabulous! And I’m ready to go back. Out on the beach by 9 am under the umbrella where I stayed, book in hand, until 5 pm. Perfection.
Yesterday I attended Victoria Schwab’s book signing at Parnassus Books in Nashville, and it was a full house. She’s one of my favorite authors, and I’ve often said I’d love to spend a day in her head to see how her mind works. Marcia, if you’re reading this, I told her you had cats named Rhy and Kell, and she asked why I didn’t have their pics. But I do have the pic you requested I take with her!
This week, I’ll be leaving on Thursday for Penned Con in St. Louis. Last year was my first time signing, and it was one of most well-organized book festivals I’ve attended – plus, the organizers donate the majority of the profits to charity. And the fans! Folks who have a deep passion for books, and I enjoyed talking with so many of them. This year’s theme is Going Back to the 80s, and Thursday night is a trivia contest. Considering I’m a child of the 80s, I’m thinking I might have an advantage. My Save Ferris shirt is already packed. It’s going to be an awesome weekend.
During my downtime at Penned Con, I’ll be working on the Bad Moon Rising posts. I still have one opening for October 31st, and I always like to have extra authors on the backburner. Seems like every year a couple of authors don’t return their info, so I always have extra slots. If all the info is returned, I’ll schedule a few posts for the same day to make sure everyone is included. Tell your friends!
Have a great week!
