I’m home–it’s been a whirlwind of a week! Last Monday, I went to Toronto for the More Than Words award ceremony, as you know if you’ve been following this blog. Then, on Saturday morning, it was off again; this time, I flew into Seattle, was met by my long-time friend, Gentleman Sam Smith, crack Harlequin sales rep. (I knew Sam and his wife Janet, who is one of my all-time favorite people, long before either of us worked for Harlequin.) We drove to Snohomish, where I signed books at the new Fred Meyer store. Both of us had a great time.
Since we didn’t have time for lunch, I had LOTS of points (Weight Watchers) left for dinner. I had fish–fortunately, I LOVE fish and fresh vegetables–and a “dirty” martini. For you teetotalers, that means they pour some of the olive juice into the drink.
Sam and I shared an excellent meal and a lot of good conversation–we talked about animals, art, and of course books, a subject near and dear to both our hearts. (Sam reads virtually every book he sells and he can discuss them intelligently.)
Once I got to my room, I was bushed. I did a little watercolor, as art helps me make the transition from full throttle to sleep. In the morning, I had a light room service breakfast and watched infomercials (my little confession for the day) and then Sam and I met up again, in the lobby, and headed over to the airport to catch our flights–his to sunny California, mine to snowy Spokane. (Have I mentioned that I REALLY miss Arizona?)
Well, time to journal–I am WAY behind today–and then plunge into “Taming Dylan”. You are going to LOVE Dylan Creed–I know I do. Hunka-hunka of burnin’ love, that Dylan.
Meanwhile, the new More Than Words anthology is out there in the stores, along with “Deadly Deceptions”, the second Mojo adventure.
Read a good book lately?
