Time is ticking down faster than I had planned. I have the last 2 chapters of Book 4 that need to be edited tonight so I can ship the book off to my editor on Friday. I haven't even begun to think about packing for my Florida trip, which I leave for on Saturday. So, it should go without saying that I'm running a little behind.
However, before I leave, I want to give you a quick rundown of my schedule if you happen to attending the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention from April 22 through April 26.
On Thursday, April 23, I will be on a panel from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.:
URBAN FANTASY: I’LL LOVE YOU ... FOREVER: WRITING A SERIES IN URBAN FANTASY
THURSDAY: What happens when there’s no happy ending to wrap up the book? Urban fantasy authors discuss the nuts and bolts of writing a series: how to build a world, plan a story arc and keep the romance alive book after book.
Captain: Richelle Mead
Panelists: Mario Acevedo, Ilona Andrews, Jocelynn Drake, Jeaniene Frost, Mark Henry, Jaye Wells
I will be on the radio program: Authors on Air: Parnormal Party at 2 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. with Jeaniene Frost, Terry Garey, Pamela Palmer, Jamie Rush & Kerrelyn Sparks
Here is a link for more information so you can call in and ask questions!
From 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., I will be appearing at Avon's Dusk to Dawn Mixer:
The sun has disappeared on the horizon and the shades of the night envelope the earth. Avon and its authors invite you to celebrate the dark passion of twilight with food, fun, and drink. Expect the unexpected as you never know what magic may appear in the cool, early hours of the evening. Please stop by. There is a dark rumor that there may be some free books.
On Saturday, April 25, I will be at the Giant Book Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. signing my books. My publisher is trying very hard to have copies of Dayhunter available. Keep your fingers crossed!
Giant Book Fair: Where can you meet your favorite authors, get your pic taken with them or a cover model, or get a sneak preview to what's coming out in the wonderful world of women's fiction? At the one and only RT Booklovers Convention Book Fair! Over 300 authors will autograph books, posters and bookmarks, and you can bring your favorite "keeper" books to have your fav author sign them!!
Finally, I will be occasionally wandering aimlessly around the conference, so feel free to stop me for a picture, a signing, or some quick chitchat. I'm always looking for someone to help me look less lost and lonely.
