Gearing Up For Romantic Times

Only six more days until I fly off to Chicago for the Romantic Times Convention, and already I've changed my outfits three times.

Yes, I'm that girl. The one who has a closet full of clothes and not a damn thing to wear.

I feel your pain.
Dusty just shakes his head, stays out of my way, and tells me when I'm being an idiot. But mostly he stays out of my way, because he knows interfering with a woman on a clothing mission is dangerous for his health. I'm almost satisfied with what I've got, but I've got one or two more outfits to check...

Good News: I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at RT! Check my schedule on my website if you want to know where to find me, or look for the little redhead in the black and blue scooter and the totally stupid meep-meep horn. And don't forget, at Club RT you can sit and chat with me, get something signed, all without having to wait in line. So that's a great time to find me if you have a question.

More Good News: The Hob is done, and off to the beta readers! And this time, I was smart: while it was in the Meat Grinder, I wrote the rough draft of the synopsis. Once I have all my feedback and make the necessary adjustments, I can send it out almost immediately.

Bad News: The kids are on Spring Break while I'm at RT! WOOT! Dusty's going to have so much fun while I'm gone. In fact, he's so certain of that he took the week off.

Somehow, I get the feeling I'm going to be hearing this when I get home:

Sing it with me!

I can almost feel sorry for Dusty....ALMOST! Just tell him it builds character!
