The Silver Lining | Friday Five

1. My round robin copy of SHIVER arrived a few days ago. I am halfway through and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I am trying to finish reading so I can send it back out again on Monday, but I don’t want to part with it! I will take a picture of me with it soon, I just haven’t had a chance yet (mostly because it has been raining and my hair gets frizzy yucky in the rain.)

2. I have not written a word in over two weeks. I am also really behind on replying to emails, so if you are waiting to hear from me, I am not ignoring you, I promise. It took me over a week to respond to my own agent! The problem is I’ve had very little computer time over the last two weeks, sometimes less than 5 minutes a day. I’ve done most of my internet surfing on the iPhone, which is easy to read on, annoying to type on. It seems things may finally calm down next week so hopefully I’ll catch up. I’ve set a goal to finish my rewrite of my retelling by father’s day so I can set it aside and do some other revisions on another book I need to do. Hopefully those revisions won’t take too long and I can come back and revise the retelling with fresh eyes.

3. This weekend the boy and I are going to the NYC BBQ festival in Madison Square Park! It’s our favorite thing–he is a foody so this is like a dream for him. I don’t eat all that much there because I don’t eat pork and that limits things, but they have mint juleps at Tabla across the street and well, I like alcohol. If you live near NYC, you should definitely consider going! It’s very fun! The lines are long though so keep that in mind. Earlier or later in the day is better. (We have a pass that lets us skip the lines, but to get it we had to guarantee that we would spend $100. Most of that $100 will be going into the bf’s stomach.)

4. I am in TV withdrawal.

5. What are everyone’s weekend plans?

    • Oh that sounds fun! Which book signing? I love to draw, but I definitely don’t do it enough, mostly because I have no space in my tiny apartment.

      • My house is tiny tiny tiny. I draw on the living room couch. LOL. I have a drafting table set up to paint at. 🙂

        The book signing was in St. Louis. There were 5 other authors there, but I was the only children’s book author/illustrator. I spent most of the day signing books and talking to people. My feet hurt from sanding all day long!

  1. I’d usually be in TV withdrawal now, too, but I recently got the first two volumes of The Addams Family TV show on DVD, so that withdrawal is being held off at the moment. 🙂
