Happy August! The month of August traditionally marks the last days of summer when children try not to think about the upcoming schoolyear and families try to fit in last minute vacations. And speaking of vacations, hubby and I snuck in a really fun vacation in San Antonio on the front end of the RWA Conference. Three of my kids and my son-in-law joined us so the Mom in me was doubly pleased. If you're interested in seeing some pictures, I've posted many of them on my FACEBOOK PAGE.
Once the family left it was time to attend the RWA National conference - and this is one I look forward to all year. After sitting out last year my always fun roommates were back - namely Margaret Daley and Laura Marie Altom. It was fun catching up on all the latest with them and with so many other good friends I only see once a year at this event. And of course I loved having some face time with both my lovely agent and the Love Inspired editors. All in all, between the vacation and the conference it was a fun 10 days in San Antonio. I'm already looking forward to next year's conference, which will be in New York!!
On the writing front, I'm looking forward to the upcoming November release of Her Holiday Family, the first book in my NEW Turnabout series. I had a great time redeeming the town bad girl, Eileen Pierce and the story itself was a little different and something of a challenge to bring to life. I hope readers will love it as much as I do!! It is already available for preorder and you can find it here: HER HOLIDAY FAMILY
Once again I've got some great guests lined up for my Spotlight Interviews.
The spotlight interview of the fabulous Pamela Morsi will remain up for a little longer on my AUTHOR VIP page. Stay tuned for a fun new author interview coming soon.
Shana Asaro, Associate Editor from Harlequin Love Inspired, will be in my Industry Spotlight for the month of August. Look for her interview on my INDUSTRY VIP page.
And last but not least, here's my quote for the month.
"To have time for what is valuable, you have to stop giving time to what isn't."
