Jaunty Quills

The fabulous Kristan Higgins (who is very funny and sweet) has put up some info on Jaunty Quills about the RITA Best First Books. So if you're looking for a new author to try, check out the finalists. There are some very interesting premises and plots going on. Yet more authors to add to my TBR list!!

Speaking of RWA, my To Do List is slowly being widdled away. So far I've:
  • Taken my daughter's dress to be altered
  • Bought shoes and earrings to go with my gown
  • Shipped off all necessary books for raffles & baskets
  • Picked up dry cleaning
  • Slowly cleaning my house so my mom won't be living in chaos for a week.

Starting to get excited about the trip, and the thought of seeing some old friends again, hanging out, catching up on their lives, and talking about the biz. Meeting with my agent. Participating in the Literacy Signing for the first time...

If anyone is attending, please stop by and say hello. The Literacy signing is open to the public. Wednesday, July 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Walt Disney World® Dolphin Resort, Pacific Exhibit Hall, in Orlando, Florida. Hope to see some familiar faces!

Off to write my pages for the day...

Are you nervous? So, your daughter is going with you? Remember, take pics-- have someone take them of you dressed up too! You are going to have so much fun:)

Yes! Totally nervous. Esp. if they call me name and I have to go on stage and make a speech. TERRIFYING!!!! I'll definitely take pictures. My soon-to-be 10 yr old daughter is going, and is so excited to dress up and go to a "real ball". That alone is going to make the night super special. :D
