I'm back from the RWA conference in Atlanta, GA, which was beyond hot :-) Even with the A/C on, the humidity was incredible. But it's better than being in Wisconsin in the middle of winter -- which I have been and didn't enjoy (the weather, not the trip or the people :-).
It was a great time, with some great photos:
That's me and my best friend, critique partner, Janet Dean, who has on a huge smile because she just sold her first book to Steeple Hill!!!! It'll be out in early '08 and is a wonderful story that takes place during the time when the orphan train ran through our country. Very cool, very unique and very good :-)
Here's me and my editor:
And yes, I do still talk to Jenny even though she is impossibly beautiful :-) She's also very, very nice, and being from London, has that awesome accent that I wish I could mimic (though I don't think it would fly in the Midwest, LOL).
I'm off to sign books at the Indiana State Fair on Monday. I hope they put me in a separate pen from the piglets ;-)
