I swear my brain is blank this morning. I've been staring at the blinking cursor for the last ten minutes and still can't come up with a pithy topic. I've been up until well after one AM each night working on my revisions, the DH has been out of town and I have a thousand things I need to do today (which is weighing on my brain right now). Not to mention I need to get dressed to go run my seven miles this morning (my running partner is a slave driver).
So instead of something deep and stimulating, I'm going to share the things I've learned (or heard about in passing) this week and some things I'm looking forward to:
In the news:
In case you didn't hear (I think it was last week!), Kendra placed third in the Linda Howard Contest. Way to go, Kendra! Right now she's in Hawaii. (I'm green with jealousy.)
Everyone's talking about what a blast the Romantic Times Convention was this past week in Pittsburgh. The girls at Killer Fiction, The Bradford Bunch, Romance Bandits...they all have pictures and stories up on their blogs. Next year RT is in Orlando. I'm considering going because my first book will be out then. Someone told me RWA is a great convention if you're prepubbed, RT is the one you need attend after you have a book (or books) out. Anyone here been to RT or planning to go next year?
Allison Brennan just inked a HUGE new deal with Ballantine for a new supernatural thriller series based on the seven deadly sins. She talked all about it yesterday at Murder She Writes.
Gemma Halliday also agreed to write a new series for Dorchester based on a Hollywood gossip magazine and the mysteries surrounding it. Read more about her new series here.
And things I'm looking forward to:
The new Indiana Jones movie.
68 degree temps on Saturday.
Finishing my revisions (I'm so close!)
There's more but my brain is too full to think of them! So you share...what news did you hear this week? Anything interesting? And what things are you looking forward to in May?
