Many Thanks

A huge thanks to everyone who came out to the book signing yesterday. The staff at Barnes & Noble, especially Georgette, were all amazing and gracious. Not only did they donate all proceeds from the sale of Love, Texas Style to the North Texas Romance Writers of America's scholarship fund, but added giveaways and prizes for our readers to make the day a huge success. Thank you!
As promised, I took my camera and captured this moment in front of the impressive culinary hardback display. Shanni, a dear friend and avid reader, has the distinction of being one of my first beta readers on several projects. She provides an amazing perspective, much valued, and once uttered my name in the same breath as Dean Koontz's. A true girl-squeal moment.

Tomorrow: Two time travel Hollywood movie deals in the past week AND one must-see student documentary.

So, um, like where the pic of you? Are you hiding? Tres chic of you!

Book-signings are so much fun. It's having a party without needing to clean your house -- how great is that?

Hi Laura! I went to a book signing on Monday for Sandra Gulland. She does historical fiction - 15th c. France. She dressed up in gown from that time period!! Hmmm, I think you need to find something Doris Day - ish for your next signing:)

Oh, I can TOTALLY see that. Head scarf and cat-eye sunglasses. If I was more gregarious, I would do it. As it is, I wanted to disappear into the glossy creme brulee cover behind me.

An author friend of mine here, Rosemary Clement Moore kicked off her debut, Prom Dates from Hell, by wearing her prom dress from high school. It made for a fun YA booksigning.

And no, when The Night Caller is published, I'm not dressing like a nineteenth century prostitute *g*
