Okay, I'm seriously pouting here. My friends are at The Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Pittsburgh and I'm here...curled in a fetal position, sucking my thumb and feelin' depressed. First let me say, I don't only LIKE my friends, I LOOOOOVE them. I can't get through a single day without talking to one or all of them so yeah, I'm feeling a bit left out here. However, I'm consoling myself with the fact they aren't stingy women. They'll happily share all the gossip with me and I can't wait.
At the moment, I'm consoling myself that I'll get scads of writing done. My WIP has been calling my name and I attacked it with a vengence yesterday...but today??? Uh-uh. Not happening. So I crawled out of my writing cave and emailed other unfortunate friends who didn't get to make the trip to Pittsburgh and we all whined together.
I always try to put an optimistic spin on things but I was too busy feeling lonely and depressed to find ANYTHING. But sometimes my hopes are reaffirmed in a big way. Tonight I found my upcoming Ellora's Cave title Tempting Tess listed on the coming soon page. Yeah, I know, it shouldn't be a big deal but it IS!!!! This is my first Ellora's Cave title and I knew it was coming but it hadn't really seemed REAL until that exact moment. Soooo...I uncurled from that damn fetal position and took my thumb out of my mouth. I actually smiled a whole bunch.
I may not be in Pittsburgh with my buddies but they are here with me anyway. They are firmly planted in my heart and I know that once they read THIS, they'll be celebrating with me!!!
Can't wait to hear of your adventures and about the new people you'll be meeting. In the meantime, I'm here at home waiting.
For Anny, Cindy and Kelly...have fun. I miss you. MUAH!
