Hiya and see you soon!

Back from the Philadelphia Book Festival [such fun, even when it was raining] and now we're off to the left of us. The cutie has a conference to attend and then we'll head to the beach for some rest and relaxation.

I'll be back for the booksigning in Paramus - and everyone should watch out because I should have "Hot Couture" in my hands for that one :-)

In the meantime, if you're looking for a party...Stella Price is hosting a 2 hour shindig this Thursday [21st at 8:00pm est] on Books Beyond the Boundaries [Blog Talk Radio]. There will be a simultaneous chat and radio show...what a blast! If I can get a line out from our drive west then I'll be calling in - should be a blast.

Enjoy everyone!

A Naughty Thought for Monday!

A fabulous woman called Keishawoo sent this to me for a laugh, now I'm sharing the love...ENJOY!

When Cardboard Men Come In Handy

A car gets a flat on the interstate one day. The blonde driver eases it over onto the shoulder of the road, carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk.

She takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of the vehicle facing oncoming traffic. The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to approaching drivers.

Not surprisingly, the traffic becomes snarled and backed up.

It isn't very long before a police car arrives. The officer, clearly enraged, approaches the blonde of the disabled vehicle yelling:

'What's going on here?'

'My car broke down, officer' says the woman calmly.

'Well, what the heck are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road?' he asks.

'Helllooooooo!!!!' says the blonde. 'Those are my emergency flashers!'

Where will the girls be this Saturday night? Updated

At The Spotty Dog Books & Ale!

From 5-7:00pm this unique book shop and pub will be rocking for the ladies. Besides a chocolatier, masseuse, and music, there'll be Stella Price, Cat Johnson, Allie Boniface, CH Admirand, Tara Nina and Tilly Greene talking and signing books!

Come on out and enjoy the fun! By the way, we've come up with one spectacular basket to giveaway...have to be there to win it though.

I hear you...where is The Spotty Dog located? 440 Warner Street, Hudson, NY.

Hope to see you all there!

Update: Oh wow, what a blast! Seriously, if you are ever in the area this is a great town, full of things to do...apparently we missed the firemen's parade earlier in the day and wonderful shops. The Spotty Dog was a fabulous book shop and we're trying to get in there again this Fall.

What's been cut?

I'm being ruthless as I go through "Come, Now" for submission and thought I'd share a snippet of what's been cut.

May 1896 – Petrovsky Palace, Moscow, Russia

In two hours he’d be sitting in a fabulously ornate carriage, with his beautiful wife, Alexandra Fedornova, sitting at his side. They’d be driving toward the Cathedral of the Assumption in the Kremlin where he would be crowned Emperor and Autocrat of All the Russias. Their people would be pleased to see him officially don the crown.

How stupid, he thought, here he stood a few hours before the grand procession would take him to the Assumption Cathedral for his coronation, waiting to ask a man he’d never met or heard of, for his support.

When asked, Witte, his advisor, had been able to fill him in on the Ivanovich family. Without question or needing to do research which had surprised him because he believed he already knew everyone who was important in Russia. Apparently they were an old, extremely successful family based up in Novgorod. The people of the area respected the entire clan and never questioned when their word was given.
A set of footsteps echoed down the hallway toward him. Not sure how this meeting was to be conducted he decided the best route would be to ensure this man knew he, Nicholas II, was the person in charge not some man from the wild northern territories.

Just a snippet of what's out but there's also a hint in there of what's to come :-)
