I can't believe I almost forgot this one, Bellas:
I'm on my way to the Washington (DC) Romance Writer's Retreat at Harper's Ferry. They've given me the tremendous honor of inviting me to be their guest, and asking me to speak all about Romance: B(u)y the Book. The best part? I'm telling them all about youz. The surreal part? I'm on the program just before a pretty popular romance writer. Perhaps you've heard of her. Nora Roberts?
I'm perfectly calm. Feelin no pressure. at. all. None. Really.
So, wish me buona fortuna, "into the mouths of the wolves," whatever. The title of my presentation? "Free Reads and Snaxy Men -- The Romance: B(u)y the Book Story!"
How do you psych yourself up, and keep yourself cool, before a big event?
Party, job presentation, maybe a new playgroup with the ubermoms from one town over. What's your secret?
Encore! I'll tell you all about it Monday.
Encore due! Blog Alert: Emma Holly guestblogs Tuesday May 2 to celebrate the release of the yummy/sexy "All U Can Eat."
