Monday BLEH

Bleh. Monday. I hate Monday. Even more so do I hate this particular Monday since I had such an excellent weekend. But what can you do? Fun ends and real life goes on.

On Friday I went to see friend and fellow writer Jennifer O'Connell read/sign her new NAL book "Off the Record." It sounds like such a cute story - about this girl who finds out a famous one-hit-wonder 80s song was written about her. I'm looking forward to reading it. Jennifer's such a cool girl, too. I love it when writers are as fun as the books they pen.

In other news - SK8ER BOY is now shipping from Amazon!! Woot! Buy, buy, buy!! :)

AND it's less than 2 weeks til the New Jersey RWA conference. This will be my 3rd year attending. My first year was the year I pitched CT Fashionista to an agent. It was the first time I'd ever done a pitch and I was soooo nervous!! I guess I didn't totally blow it though, considering the agent signed me a month later and we're still together today!! ;-) I can't believe that was two years ago!! It seems both like yesterday and a million years ago all at the same time.

Anyway - hope to see some of you at the conference. I'll be the professional romance author wearing a suit and drinking diet coke in the lounge who attends conferences to further her writing career through a series of networking exercises and who would never, ever, EVER even consider getting drunk and shooting plastic chickens at her editor in the bar.

Yup. That's me. Angelic and professional.


Um, stop laughing!

You wear a suit? Wear are the pink stilleto heals? And I think you can do a little better than a diet coke... how 'bout a margarita?

Wish I could be there... sounds like a blast!

Just finished Off the Record and loved it. My favorite by far!
