Only the Good Friday: Next Week!


I’m feeling sort of lousy this morning. Dunno why.

But since it’s Only the Good Friday, that means it’s time to put the icks behind me and dwell on … next Friday. That’s when I leave here after lunch, head over to the Akron airport, pick up my good friend Ann, and head down to West Chester, OH, and join authors Lori Foster, Dianne Castell, and a whole bunch of others for Dianne and Lori’s Author-Reader Get Together.

I heard about it last year, too late to go, but after being at the Romantic Times Convention and digging the vibe of everyone in attendance, and then hearing how much fun everyone had at last year’s Dianne and Lori’s Get-Together, I had to go this year. Having Ann is what tipped me over the edge of temptation. She’s great fun to be with.

Best of all, I’ve gotten to chat with some of the women who’ll be there, via e-mail loop. Wow. Again, there’s that creative, fun, zany vibe. I’m pysched.

Ready for the icing on the cake? There’s a book signing being held on Saturday from 2-4 (use the above link for locations and stuff). Lori’s graciously allowed us self-published authors to bring our own books and handle all financial transactions ourselves (which is the scary part. I married the Tour Manager for his math skills, you know!).

I’m bringing 40 copies. With close to 300 attendees, I’m now afraid that’s not enough.

BUT if I sell them all (and the signing is open to the public, if you’re nearby!), I’ll make a donation to Lori’s charity of the year, The One Way Farm Children’s Home of Fairfield, OH. A donation beyond what I’ll spend on raffle tickets and other goodies, that is. A donation out of my profits.

Demo Tapes. Lori Foster. Lots of folk who love books for the same reason I do: they rock.

And great company for the ride down and back.

Yep, if that’s not good, I’m Trevor’s favorite bass, the one with the cracked neck that can’t be played anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am no bass guitar.

See ya in Cincy.

And check out the other Only the Good participants, will ya? Even better, come join us! Spread some good throughout the world. I feel better just for writing this. THAT is the power of good.

    P.S. I meant to add, but I also got to see Michelle Willingham and Mechele Armstrong, and have already made plans to see Larissa next year at RT, so it’s all good (or at least not all bad). 🙂
    Must go to bed now.

    It’ll be great to meet you both. 🙂
    When with friends, even the travel is fun. Plenty of time for catching up.
    Drive safe!
