As you can tell from the picture below, I really really enjoy meeting my readers and sitting down and having a meal and a drink and just chatting. To me, nothing is more pleasurable than relaxing with friends over a good meal and that’s what I’m planning on doing as much as I can in the first half of 2011!
I can tell you right now I’ve got plans being hatched and events being discussed for:
- Ann Arbor
- Minneapolis/St. Paul
- Green Bay
Are you in any of these areas? Does a Girls Night Out or a Reader Dinner sound fun? Make sure you keep checking back for more details, or email me to ask that you be put on an event invite list so I can make sure to get you all the details once we’re ready to go. In some cities I’m speaking at a library, other places I’m doing an RWA workshop, and other places I’m joining a book club, but if I’m coming to your area, I’m also trying to plan a dinner with you!
For my Canadian friends…I do think we need to put something together for you all. I’ve been studying my reader mailing list and I’ve a great group of Canadian readers and I want to see you. Let’s figure this out!
Lastly, because I have three unclaimed prizes from my contest last week (why don’t you folks check back to see if you won?!?), I’m going to give them away now. This is a super short one day contest that starts tonight and ends Tuesday morning at 8 am PST. Want to win one of these cool Mystery prizes? Tell me 5 things about a person you love and you’re entered!
I’ll get you started with my own 5 about my middle son Ty, a sixth grader:
I lovethat Ty’s his own person and likes what he wants to like without caring if it’s cool.
I love his shaggy blonde hair and the way he smiles
I love how he wants to live with me in my basement when I’m old (I don’t have a basement).
I love that he was more afraid of sea turtles than sharks when surfing
I love that he’ll tell me he loves me a dozen times a day.
