This past weekend, I went back home to Bellevue. It was a wonderful couple of days, fun and exciting and also a little bittersweet. Son Ty was with me and we loved every minute of our weekend, catching up with friends.
On Sunday, March 3rd, Nancy Nordquist from the Downtown Bellevue Barnes & Noble hosted an event for me and treated me like a star! She was so sweet and so efficient. We had a great turn out with over 50 people. I can’t wait to do it again in September for The Good Wife.
Today I’m headed to Tulare for an event at the Tulare Public Library at 5:30pm and so looking forward to seeing my friend Kim Taylor. I’ll be at the library until almost 7:00pm when we’ll head to Vejar’s for a fun Girls Night Out dinner event. Tomorrow I’ll be in Fresno for another reader dinner at the Piazza Del Pane Italian Cafe. I’d love to see you if you’re in area so do join us if you can!
On Saturday, the 9th, I’m doing a one-day seminar and presenting several workshops for the Yosemite Romance Writers. It’s going to be fun and energizing and I am so looking forward to meeting up with all wonderful ladies at this chapter. Oh and speaking of workshops, if you’re on the East Coast, save these dates on your calendar:
*April 19th – I’ll be in Boonsboro, Maryland, signing books at Nora Robert’s bookstore, Turn the Page. So exciting! If you live in the area, come say hello!
*April 19th – 21st – I’ll be in Westminster for the Washington Romance Writers Retreat where I’ll be presenting my Intense & Tight: Pacing The Short Contemporary workshop and also my 10 Keys to Success & Survival workshops.
* April 21st – I’ll be hosting a special reader dinner in Alexandria too! More details will be on my Events page soon so keep an eye on that.
For those of you who can’t be with me tonight, I’ve still got some fun planned! I have a couple of deliciously fun Seattle prize boxes here for you! Each box includes a copy of Odd Mom Out, Mrs. Perfect, lots of Seattle chocolates, coffee, a Starbucks drink card and more fun goodies. For a chance to win, tell me what your plans are this weekend, or what you did this week. You know I love hearing from you! I’ll pick winners on Monday, the 11th. Have a wonderful weekend all!!
