Hello mah beauties!
I hope you’re well! I’m fighting off a bit of a cold I picked up at JFK. I swear, every time I fly through that airport I get sick. I can’t complain too much, though, as this is just a head cold. That last time I went to London through JFK, I picked up what I think might have been ebola, and spread it all around to friends in the UK and then back to my colleagues in PA when I returned. They claimed I was the Outbreak monkey, and they are, realistically, correct.
But DC was wonderful, and it was lovely to spend time with my parents. My dad sat at the hotel while my mom and I wandered around the city. And by “wandered,” I mean walked for miles and miles and miles. It’s a fabulous place though, and it was great spending quality time with Rella.
As for me, I’m working slowly but surely away at Tempest’s Fury, and finishing up all my grading for the end of the year. I’ve got one class done, and just three big things to grade before I’m finished! It’s still quite a bit of work, but totally doable.
And then on Sunday, I leave for Dallas, to join Jaye Wells for our SNARK-LA-TEX tour. If you’re in Louisiana or Texas, we might be near you next week!
We’ll have Mary Lois, our Turtle, with us, so hopefully she’ll take lots of pictures. You got a camera, ML?
Our goals for the tour are to have a) a buttload of fun and b) not get arrested. Although Jaye keeps reminding me that we also want to sell a lot of books, so that’s c) sell a lot of books (while having fun and not getting arrested).
I’m very excited to be back in the South, and especially to spend some time with my friends in Shreveport after the tour.
So that’s the next few weeks of my life! Typically busy, crazy, and fun…hurrah! I hope to see some of you on the tour, and for those of you who can’t make it, I’ll try to blog lots and remember, you can always email me at iheartselkies(at)gmail(dot)com for a signed bookplate.
But speaking of books, I know what you really want . . . to know who won a signed copy of Kevin Hearne’s Hounded!
The contest can has spoken!
And the wiener is Damaris T!
Congrats to Damaris. Email me at iheartselkies(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll forward your info to Kevin.
Thanks everyone for playing. You all had great entries, some of which I’m still giggling over.
See you soon, and come play if you’re in LA or TX! 😉
