Dishing with the Divas

I’ve just returned with my boys from Reno where we went for a day and a half to see my mom and catch up with my brother Thom, his wife Lee, and their two little girls. Thom lives in North Carolina and doesn’t get to the West Coast very often and my boys were dying to see their little girl cousins. And what cute little girls! They were so doll-like that my boys were almost afraid to play with them in case they broke.

But Reno wasn’t just a quickie mini-reunion, it included a booksigning at Barnes & Noble–hence my new guest blog today over at

Book signings are such strange things, sometimes so wonderful, sometimes so awful, and almost always exhausting. As I said in my new blog over at Fog City Divas, a well planned and tightly coordinated book event can be fantastic, but the work involved is ridiculous. I do so much to make sure my book events are as successful as possible but there are times I can’t do it all, or even enough, and there’s nothing worse than sitting at a card table with a mountain of books and no one in sight.

Please come visit me over at and ask a question, toss in a comment, or just lurk. There are some brilliant writers hanging out over there and lots of very good friends.
