I’m getting ready to head to Portland, Oregon early this afternoon and it’s going to be a busy weekend as I have a conference to attend in downtown Portland, a booksigning Saturday night in Beaverton at the Borders, and then my oldest son has a two day water polo tournament at the T-Hills pool in Beaverton. Surfer Ty flew in just for the weekend to help me get everyone where they need to be while providing some entertainment for my youngest son. Ty’s flight from Hawaii was delayed by several hours last night and he didn’t arrive at the house until one in the morning. I was, needless to say, asleep.
If you’re in or around Portland Saturday please join me for a 5 pm dinner at Bugatti’s before the book signing, or if you can’t come for dinner, just head to the Borders Bookstore (2605 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton, OR 97005) for the signing that’s from 6:30-8 pm. I’ve got tons of fun reader goodies already packed in the car and I would so love to put faces with your names!
For those attending the Celebrate Romance conference, I won’t be putting in an appearance until Sunday morning at this point due to kids stuff and pregnancy stuff. I’m running on less energy than I use to and can’t pull the long days I once did. However, I will be at the hotel from early Sunday morning until the conference ends and look forward to seeing everyone then.
Lastly, three of the six blog prizes I gave away in the last week have gone unclaimed. Karen from Boston–you won the Oscar Peeps blog contest–email me with your address! And two of you from the Mac The Monkey blog contest never sent me your address and I’ll have to give those away to others Monday morning if you don’t shoot me an email soon wth your addresses. I’m only going to sit on prizes for a week before I’ll give them away to others. If you saw my house, and my dining table, you’d understand.
And speaking of prizes, I’ve got a weekend contest with one more wonderful heavy red glazed XOXO mug, a copy of Anna Campbell’s amazing hot, intense, brilliant, new historical, Tempt The Devil, a Starbucks drink card, and tons of others goodies. If interested in winning this great gift, share what your weekend plans are, or what you’re reading now, and you’re entered. Contest runs through Sunday night midnight PST and I’ll announce the winner Monday morning, as well as draw some extra winners for any prizes that have gone unclaimed. So fill me in on your plans and/or your reading and you’re entered!
Have a great weekend everyone. The snow is melting here. I’ve got Surfer Ty’s company for the next three days. I’ll see Kari Andersen in Portland along with some of my favorite writer friends. And I’m going to be juggling mom and author hats, but that’s perfect. This is how I like life. Should be a happy few days.
