New York, New York


I just got back from a whirlwind tour of New York City where I met with my editors to discuss new books and met with my agent to discuss new deals. Also caught up with some friends.
Here's me with hot and humid hair with Liz Maverick, one half of the Rebels of Romance. We were at a Turkish restaurant where the appetizer plate did not look appetizing to me. And I still can't understand how you can mix yogurt, garlic and mint together in one sentence. But I digress...it wasn't about the food, it was the company. And I did like the yogurt, garlicmint oxymoron.


And here's me with book seller extraordinaire Stacey Agdern and positively Stellar tourguide/scifiromance writer Leanna Renee Hibler. After dinner they walked me back to my hotel and we splurged for milkshakes at Lindy's on seventh and 54th. Yummy.


and me and my wonderful cousin Betsy who treated me to my first broadway show,Legally Blonde. It was the best, plus I had a blast hanging out with her and her beautiful daughters. And guess what, we're at Lindy's again drinking milkshakes.

Stay tuned for more details about my trip.

craziness

We went to a local beach music festival Saturday with our friends and had a blast of course. The best thing now is that all of our kids are old enough to party with us. And they've also realized that we are pretty cool. Once again it took a while for everyone to realize that I had a video camera in my hand, but once they did things kind of took off. This is Reece. He graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina this year. Will someone please give him a job? Hopefully close to home because I sure would miss him if he wasn't around.

Reece is looking for a job in Television production. He's got some great videos and commericials put together. And he's working on a book vid of Twist for me. I can't wait to see what he comes up with. And oh yeah, you should see him do the Electric Slide.

Cool New Contest

Dorchester is doing a contest inviting readers to dress up as their favorite character from a Dorchester book and send in a photo. There are cash and free book prizes for the best in 4 categories. The Rebels of Romance did a video explaining the rules.

I can't wait to see what the readers come up with. And if you decide to do one of my characters send me a picture and I will return the favor with an autographed copy of Twist.
