I Did It!

I did it! I went to Atlanta and got through emceeing RWA’s RITA and Golden Heart Awards Ceremony. And you know what? As much as the thought of doing it scared the pants off me, I did it, it went well, and now I feel ten feet tall (which is a feat for little ol’ height challenged me). That’s the great thing about doing something that scares you. Once you do it, you feel so proud of yourself, and you wonder why you were so scared in the first place.

Yup, Atlanta was fun—busy, but fun. I met up with author friends I hadn’t seen in a while, taught two workshops, went out for some fabulous dinners, and had three book signings. Now, I’m taking a few days off and going on a much deserved mini vacation with my hubby before I get back to work on Della’s series. I just hope she leaves me alone long enough for me to enjoy my days off. She can be so persistent!

Anyway, I thought you’d like to see a few photos from my time at the conference. I’ll post some more later, once I get home. These are some pics of my book signings:

  6. I have to admit, I had butterflies before I got up there on that stage, but once I was there, I was fine. I always said, if I wasn’t an author, I probably would have been a stand up comedienne.

  8. I never doubted you. Congratulations on your victory! You do deserve a mini vacation and I’m sure Della will understand because her life is pretty hectic as well. You were even rewarded with dessert nachos! Thanks for the pictures. Best of luck writing the series. I’m so relieved that readers didn’t have to say good bye to Shadow Falls.

  14. So is there going to be a tv show or a movie? I would personally like it to be a movie but that’s up to the producers. I HOPE IT’S A MOIVE !

  15. Well what I mean is….. I don’t want it to be one show of course I want it to be a series show or if it was just one show it wouldn’t make any sence. And I wouldn’t want it to be just a movie I would want it to be a couple movies of coruse anyway just trying to tell you in a less complicated way lol

  16. I’m thinking of writing a book too because your book has given me so much inspiration that ideas just keep coming and I want to write them down so I don’t forget!
