Crazy July

Have you ever had one of those months where everything happens all at once? We have so many things going on in July that my head is spinning! The big thing, of course, is the RWA national convention. This will be the first time I get to visit with my editor now that she is my editor. I met her very briefly last year, but only for a minute or two. Not long enough to make a lasting impression!

I know RWA is still weeks away. However, as I worry about forgetting anything, I've already started a list of what to pack. Since it costs a small fortune for extra luggage, I hope to get it all into one carry-on bag. Sure. Thankfully it's summer and clothing is thinner and smaller. I'll employ the rolling clothes up method and make sure whatever I take matches two or three pairs of shoes. My talented sister made me a tote bag for my birthday so I'll use that for my purse to hold any little stuff that doesn't fit in the suitcase. I sure miss the days of three bags per passenger!

Well, I'm off for now to plan ways to get through next month. See ya soon!

5k and book covers

Good morning. Good news. I should be getting my first cover very soon! Yeah! As soon as I get a copy, I'll be sure to post it on my website. For now, I'm doing a proof of my second book and cutting out excess prose. Who me? Excess prose? Don't readers want to read 47 pages about a heroine's cute shoes? Odd. *g*

It's about a year until my first release so I'll be looking into promo. My editor has awesome ideas for my website and a contest. That will be coming up in the next few months. I have a Facebook page but am not exactly updating daily. Not sure what to do with it, but I'll get that all figured out eventually!

Today myself and my daughter (and fellow former couch potato) are jogging a 5k. We started training a couple of months ago and are geeked! No, we will not be signing up for the Boston marathon anytime soon. We just wanted to amp up our fitness level and it gives us some mother-daughter alone time to talk. If I survive the 3+ miles without keeling over, I'll post about it tomorrow!

See ya!
