This may be my shortest
rant post ever. I love commenting on blogs, but am I the only one who has trouble with those little security words you have to type at the end? Look at this one. What the heck is that??? Apparently, I’m about as intelligent as a spam-bot, because I have no clue.
What about you? Do you mind having to type something in at the end of a comment?
I almost forgot to tell you guys about the cool thing that happened at RWA12 last week…
Well, let’s start the tale with the fact that Shadow Rising, book 2 in my spicy urban fantasy series with Samhain is coming out next month!!! Well, I’m excited about this fact, so I scraped together my nickels and dimes and came up with the money to put a little black and white ad in September’s issue of RT magazine.
I was so pleased when I opened the magazine and saw my ad! (September’s issue arrives to most people in the first week of August, but they had it at the conference a week early!!)
This is what my little ad baby looked like:
Isn’t it precious?? *cuddle*
So when my friend Melissa Cutler asked if I’d seen my book in RT, I proudly answered yes and opened the magazine to the page that sported my ad. But then she said something like, “No, not that one–the other one.”
Gasp. Was she crazy? What was she talking about? So I frantically flipped through until I stumbled upon this:
EEeeeppp!!!!!! It was like my ad, only what my ad would have turned out like if it had been raised in a better home and Harvard educated. With celebrity parents. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s bright and shiny. Sparkly, even. I was gushing all over the place, ready to have Samhain’s little book babies right then and there.
So…there’s really no moral to this story other than I wanted to gush over my book baby a little. Isn’t she so cute?
And if you’d like to see the bright, shiny version, pick up a copy of this month’s RT magazine. 😀
Okay, I tried to get out of it, but I promised everyone a picture me and my friends dancing at the Samhain party at RWA nationals. The good dancers next to me are Lisa Kessler and Jill Sorenson–the same awesome women who danced the night away with me at RT 2011. I’m the one whose hand is poised under her derriere, doing a totally cool and original dance move!! (One I’m sure you’ve never seen before and–hopefully for you–will never see again!) You may think Lisa and I are talking over something important while we dance, but in the interest of full disclosure…we were probably singing–LOUDLY.
And now that I’ve tarnished my dear friends’ reputations by putting them on them web dancing next to me, I should probably also show you how beautiful and normal they are when not dancing. 😀
Have a great weekend, everyone!
