Why I Wasn't At RT





Happy Birthday Lemon Drop!  Here she is at Disneyland devouring a Mickey Mouse waffle with strawberries.  Yum, yum!








My library's Literary Event!  From left to right: Judy Duarte, Debra Mullins and Laura Wright.  I want to thank all of these ladies from taking time out of their lives (and in some cases - RT!) to do our little program.  Although since we sold out  (uh, 500 people) I'm not sure we were all that "little."  What I like about my library's literary event?  It's multi-genre.  So, not just romance.  I think these types of programs can be great for romance authors.  It's a chance to reach a "new" audience.  Of course it helps to have these programs hosted by romance-friendly folk.  Ahem - which is where me moderating this panel would come into play.


And look where I was on Sunday!  At the ballpark!  The Anaheim Angels vs. the Toronto Blue Jays.  Angels ended up winning 3-1.

The other reason I wasn't at RT?  My parents being in town on their annual vacation.  I'd post a picture of them, but my mother would likely disown me and write me out of the will if I did.  But take my word for it - they were here.

Thanks to Auntie Wendy for posting a smiling picture rather than the freaked out crying picture with Chip. :)

Aww look at the smile on Lemon Drop! Happy B'day!

Your event sounds like a big success Wendy. 500 people?! O_o That's just wonderful. Congratulations. Plus you had baseball, AND your parents... you had the best weekend. :D

Wendy said...

Lisabea: She's almost as cute as you are ;) Can't wait to see you at RWA!!!

Lil' Sis: Lemon Drop is just smarter than the rest of us. She knows a giant rodent can only mean bad and terrible things.

Hilcia: 5th year of the event, and the first time we've sold out. Hopefully I'll get more of a rundown on how things went once I get back to the office. Looked like a smashing success from what I saw of things.

You had the best reasons for missing RT. Lemon Drop is just the most adorable ever!

Awesome "little" program you've got there. 500! Your library is lucky to have you. :)

A belated Happy Birthday to Lemon Drop! As always, she's adorable.

Wendy said...

Leslie: First time we've ever sold out. Everyone is pretty happy about that!

Nath: She was enjoying herself until some of the Disney characters came around. She was OK with Eeyore, but was NOT happy to see Chip :)

SarahT: I can't believe it's been a year already. Truly.
