I’m heading out to San Diego this Friday for a workshop on “Keeping Them Hooked” Saturday morning with the San Diego RWA chapter. This will be my first book signing for THE DRAGON AND THE PEARL and I’m doubly excited because I’ll be the opening act for Barbara Vey from Publishers Weekly who’s the afternoon speaker.

This also brings me back to Southern California for a visit to my family and then my BFF’s wedding the next week. I’ll be in the wedding party as a very round bridesmaid as the twins are growing inside me.


Oh me garshk! Is it that time already. I’ll be drawing for the winners for the first round of the Launch Celebration this Thursday. So far there’s a handful of supporters joining in on Facebook, blogs and Twitter. *blows kisses* Thank you!!

Spread the word for a chance to win books and other cool goodies.
