The Everything Post

Why? Because there's a little bit of everything. I got a little behind over the weekend because I spent Friday night and Sunday at Fanfest in Louisville, KY and Saturday at the Horse Cave Book Fest in Horse Cave, KY. But, it was well worth it, because I got to wear my whole elf ensemble and I met these guys:

Me with Sean Astin and John Rhys-Davies!
They were so funny and nice. That John Rhys-Davies is a tickler too! I was laughing so hard in the first shot, I begged the photographer to take another. He was gracious enough to do so, and I kept a straight enough face. Didn't pass out or say anything incredibly stupid, either, which is always a plus.

And I sold a total of ten books over the weekend. Not entirely awesome, yet it beats my record so far. Therefore, I keep swimming.

At least I woke up to a wonderful.....

You may or may not have been following my recent blog tour, but here are a few stops you might want to check out. I wrote this little article called "A Little Naughty Goes a Long Way" for SJ Clarke's blog. We have a lovely discussion going there about love scenes in fiction. Feel free to come over and share your own thoughts:

And today, doncha know, I'm at FOUR different places. Two interviews, one book review, and a guest post.

1. Interview on Kay Dee Royal's Blog--This was such a fun interview, and we're talking dreams and what they mean in the comment section. Plus, there's a giveaway! Come share some of your weird dreams and see if I can guess what they mean.

4. Interview at JeanzBookReadNReview--A nice, long interview. If you didn't know me before, you will now! It's probably as close to a Barbara Walters interview as I'll get, minus the tissues. Go show me some love!

    1. Thanks Christina! I didn't see that show. I'll have to look it up. I loved him in 50 First Dates and as narrator of Meerkat Manor. I really miss that show!

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog, SeanAstinFan!!

      To be fair, Sean DID warn us that John was a tickler. I should have heeded Sean's advice and tickled him first, but it was a privilege to be tickled anyway :)
