Friday night's booksigning was surreal. For the dozens, maybe hundreds, of times I'd stood on the other side of the table to support authors, the view from behind the stacked books and name placard rivaled any on this journey to date. Few times have I broken free of the tangled forest that's so isolating along the way and been able to enjoy such an intoxicating vista. A heady taste of what's to come should I stay the course.
A huge thanks to Sherry, Melanie and Mary for allowing me the diva crown for the night, to my fellow Love, Texas Style authors: Christine, Nikki, Mary, Gina and Jen for their support and friendship, and to those readers who came out to sample a little romance, Texas style.

Two sick days (and no, it wasn't Friday's celebratory martinis) later, I'm back on course with Sherry's writing challenge. Daily word count. No excuses.
