This picture is of fans from Cour'd Lene, ID who were at the Rose City RWA Reader's Luncheon in Portland.
The tallest woman is Janet. I met her the very first RWA conference I went to at Emerald City.
Nicole McCaffrey my eight year CP has her first book, "Model Man" out and has been receiving high reviews (which I told her would happen). It is an awesome book about a 40 year-old romance writer who reluctantly falls in love with a young male cover model. It is sassy, fun, and darn right hot! It's in the Last Rose of Summer line at The Wild Rose Press.
My friend, Karen, who some of you met when we had the retreat at my house, went with me to the Reader's Luncheon and from reading the excerpt Genene had there of her book "Songs of the Heart"- I may have lost my first fan to Genene! LOL She loved the excerpt and raved about it all the way home from Portland. And made me promise to buy a book from Genene as soon as she gets them.
Author, Lauri Robinson, who I met through The Wild Rose Press and has also become a friend, has received awesome reviews for her Cactus Rose book, "A Wife for Big John". A sweet, fun read about a woman who falls in love with a logger's cook stove and then him.
And though I haven't received a confirmation yet, someone at the Reader's luncheon mentioned she thought I was giving a workshop at the Beau Monde/Historical track at Nationals on Wednesday of Nationals. She's supposed to get back to me this week. I had stopped preparation on that project thinking since I hadn't heard anything- it was a no go.
Sorry this isn't a learning, growing,expanding blog, but my weekend and thought processing for the blog was messed up when my daughter's plane came in thirty hours late and my dad showed up wanting to go shopping in Bend. Family is where my attention has been and not on a throught provoking blog.
