Emerald City Writers Conference

Later this week I'll be on my way to Belluvue, Washington, not too far from Seattle, for the Emerald City Writers Conference. I've attended this conference before, but it's been two years since my last one.

I love this conference, it’s a nice small regional RWA conference put on by an RWA chapter that welcomes all writers not matter how you are published.

What's also nice, not only do I get a chance to catch up with friends at this conference, but I make new friends.

If you happen to be in the area, come by the book signing Saturday Oct. 2nd at 4 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel in Belluevue, the book signing is open to everyone. I'll be there. While I don't have a book to sign you can pick up a bookmark, post card and other goodies from me. Hope to see you there.

Another Crazy Week

Sometimes I have to wonder if the planets are aligned wrong. Last week was one of those types of weeks. The day job went out of control, I have more on my plate than I can deal with right now, but things still need to be done.

I finished up some edits on the next book and sent it off to my editor by the due date, thank goodness. It was a bit close, but I made it and that's what counts.

The next two weeks will be even more hectic as I get ready to attend the Emerald City Writers Conference in Belluve Washington Oct 1,2 & 3. If you're in the area, the book signing is Saturday afternoon. I'll post more next week on the location and time.

I'll be in the book signing along with other Wild Rose Press authors.

Have a great week.

Another Week Gone

Another week has gone by and I'm still trying to catch my breath. I don't mind being busy but sometimes I wish I could have twenty-four hours to myself. But it's not possible right now.

So tell me, what do you do to relax when you have some time to yourself?

Lately, I've been taking thirty minutes at night to sit and read, it might take me a while to finish a book, but it allows me to relax and keep my finger on the pulse of what is being published.

Labor Day Weekend

I have to admit I love three day weekends. It's so nice to have that extra day off from the day job, but that doesn't mean I'm not working. I'm always working on either the next book, promotion, researching the next book, or checking out new opportunities.

But the other good thing about a three day weekend, is I can allow myself to play a little bit more than I can on regular weekends. I have an extra day, which means I can read longer than normal, or I can go visit the blogs I like to read, that I don't always get a chance to read, or to simply sleep in for a while.

How did you spend the long weekend?
