Let The Madness Begin!

Rain again today and a trip to the doctor's office kept me from writing. Gah. But I never try to let a day go by where I don't do something that I consider "work-related", whether it's writing, editing, promoing or updating my website. So today I began going over what I'm going to need for the RT convention and making sure my bookmarks were all ready to go, since it's only three weeks away and already ALL of my April weekends are booked.

This will be my first convention as an author, and my first book signing where I actually have a book to sign! I'm two parts excited and one part nervous wreck, but going over everything I'm sliding more towards excited. All of my promo has arrived on time and is in good condition (with a minor snafu of white caps on the lip balm, but that's my fault not the company's so I'm not stressing over it). I've taken my scooter apart and put it back together after Dusty sent me from the room and jumbled the pieces to simulate how the airport will most likely give it back to me. I even have my costume for the fairy ball (including two wigs; I can't decide between the blue or the purple)!

Now all I have to do is decide how to get that promo to RT without killing myself or accidentally running someone over in an unfortunate multi-suitcase/scooter accident.

I wonder if I can do a "Countdown to Florida" gadget here...

EDIT: Dang, getting and putting up the gadget was easy! Keep an eye on the clock!
