August News

Hi there!
I hope you're having a great summer. The kids down here in Hurricane Michael territory have to go back to school August 12th! I feel so bad for them...but maybe it's good for their moms? That's how I'm choosing to look at it. More time for moms to read!

Publicly August is a pretty quiet month for me, but I have a lot going on behind the scenes. I'm gearing up for the Fall in Love with New England romance reader/author conference. Even though it's not until mid-October there are a ton of details to take care of first. Getting insurance, ordering the menu, finalizing numbers, etc. All the boring stuff.

The fun begins on Oct 18th when all the authors' efforts pay off. This year we're kicking it off with a 'charming meet and greet!' Every registered participant will receive a goody bag, name badge/ neck wallet, and an adjustable silvertone bracelet! The authors have charms that represent what they write or one of their books in particular, and they'll clip them on your bracelet. You can spend a couple minutes chatting with them about their books, career, pets, or whatever...

Workshops take place all Friday afternoon. There will be a choice of games or panels each hour (actually 50 minutes so everyone gets a quick break between activities) Then Friday night, we'll have our dinner in the Bounty Room. And guess what? There's a full size ship in there! 

Enjoy the rest of your summer! Hope to see you in the fall.
