Reading Divas

Monday, July 28, 2008

Good morning everyone--

Today's post will be short; as you already know, I'm getting ready for my fun girls' week in San Francisco at the writer's conference there. For a slug/recluse like me, there are a LOT of preparations to make. :) Although, since I'm leaving in ten minutes, I hope I'm ready!

Anyway, I wanted to post the above photograph. This week I had the pleasure of talking to the BOOK DIVAS for their monthly book group meeting, and it was so fun. It is really great to meet readers and hear their opinions on my books. Honestly, they often know more than I do. Thanks so much to the Divas for including me in their fun night, and for enjoying Firefly Lane so much, and for sending me this fab photo. Members of the book group are: from top left: Melissa, Dee, Dori, Lori, and Dana. From bottom left: Diana, Elizabeth, and Nicole. Colleen took the picture. I hope I have the names right and everyone is identified correctly. If not, Divas, please let me know. And thanks again. You guys rock!

To everyone else, I promise to come home next week with photos from the city by the Bay.

Aloha and wish me luck--

Oh, I'm so jealous. I love San Francisco and, on the whole, I find the romance industry fairly supportive of each other.

Baby had her first overnight without us and it was so quiet at home. I couldn't imagine being away and across the whole country yet!

Have a blast!

Enjoy and Enjoy your conference. When I was running the Montessori School we loved the conferences - it just feeds you to be with people who share your life's dreams and speak your language and really emphasize with your struggles and joys!

You'll come home fired up I bet!

Hey Kristin,

Hope you're having a blast in San Francisco. I just returned from Canada earlier this week and I already miss being there so much! Wish I had chosen to stay there longer, really!

In one of your previous comments, I also read that you've been to my neck of the woods too! That really amazed me! So which part of Belgium did you visit, if I may ask? And when do you plan to have some Belgian chick playing a part in one of your books? Hehe - just kidding on the latter, really! :)

As for finding "True Colors" in the stores here: I usually get your books through some online store cuz I'm the kinda computer nerd who doesn't leave the home for something as annoying as shopping (I'm one of those few females who doesn't enjoy strolling through the stores for hours) unless I really have to.

In the mean time, I still need to buy the Dutch version of "Firefly lane" too, but I have about thirty other unread books on my shelves, so if you don't mind, I'll just give a couple of other authors a chance too (and yes, I really enjoy Tami Hoag's books - got another one of hers waiting in line too).

Big hugs,

Dear April--

It was a blast, as usual. Missed you at the crazy literacy signing. Maybe next year!

Dear Marie--

thanks for chiming in! It does feed your soul to be with other women who share your interests. I do always come back fired up with enthusiasm (and exhausted from all that talking). :)

Dear Leen--

Thanks! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only woman in the world who doesn't love to shop. Even in San Francisco, I wasn't tempted. Although I did go to the book store for my hot off the shelves copy of Breaking Dawn.

Hey Kristin,

Shopping for books is different. I love going to book fairs and stuff like that. Ok, I get tired of it eventually too, but it takes a whole lot longer before I wanna go home than when I'm doing any other kind of shopping.

It's kinda fun finding out all these new things about your personality too! I'm glad I don't just like the writer for her writing talents, but I like the person behind it too. In fact: we seem to have quite a lot in common there. The shopping habits (or non-habits), the "no make-up", ... Are you sure I shouldn't be writing about you when I'm doing that essay about my long lost sister? ;) I've already told my friend in Canada that stork just happened to drop me at the wrong side of the ocean 35 years ago... :)
