I’ve GOT to brag! I just learned that “The McKettrick Way” is the #1 series romance at Borders and Waldenbooks! Pardon me while I jump up in the air and kick my heels together, shouting a rousing, “Whoopee!”
The snow lingers, and is it ever beautiful. We’re expecting more tonight–hopefully not before my emergency hair appointment. (Like Dolly Parton, I don’t worry about being a dumb blonde, because I’m not dumb and I’m not blonde, either.) Why does my appointment qualify as an emergency? Well, I’m heading out for New York early the morning of the 3rd, and hair looks–well–like I’ve been too busy writing books and messing with horses to get it done.
I’m so looking forward to this trip, even though it means a long absence–almost two weeks–from home. I’m meeting up with the Harlequin folks, having lunch with the movers and shakers from Barnes and Noble, and spending time with my beloved editor, Joan, and my agent’s agent, Irene Goodman. I plan to hit the MacKenzie-Childs store on 57th Street, and Kate’s Paperie, too. These are two of my very favorite places. After a few days in the City, this cowgirl heads for Las Vegas, where I’ll be a guest at the National Finals Rodeo, courtesy of Steve Miller and the bunch at Montana Silversmiths. You HAVE checked out their website, haven’t you? http://www.montanasilversmiths.com/
This trip, I’m taking my laptop. Barring technical snafus, I’ll be blogging regularly–my way of bringing all of you along. So pack up your saddle bags, wranglers, we’re going to ride!
