Short post for me today. Hey, did I just hear a cumulative sigh of relief? Ha ha, no worries. I’m swamped with all kinds of wonderful right now.
On Wednesday, I leave for BoucherCon, my first-ever writer’s conference, though, to be honest, it’s way more than that. It’s for anyone who loves mystery and crime fiction, fans and writers alike. Even better, I get to see one of my besties, Jennifer Hillier. Sadly, she moved from here in
Seattle back to Toronto
last December and I haven’t seen her since, so I’m excited beyond words! Happy dance time!
But as incredible as that is—and it is incredible—something even bigger is planned. I finally, FINALLY get to meet, in person, my pub-sister, my most valued critique partner, my email buddy, and my very best friend and confidant, Lisa Regan. We’ve been CPs for over two years now. Without fail, we email long-ass letters to each other twice a week, with lots of little ones and texts in between. So, hell yeah, this is going to be EPIC!!! Be prepared for lots of pictures when I return.
Also exciting, starting today, I’m a judge for the Small Press Pitch portion of Deana Barnhart’s Gearing Up to Get an Agent Blogfest or GUTGAA, as we lovingly call it. How cool is that?
And, of course, since I’ll be gone and it’s the beginning of the month, I have to compose a little sump’m sump’m for Alex J. Cavanaugh’s IWSG on Wednesday. And with all this wonderfulness, I simply have nothing to complain about, so I plan on writing something a bit lighter than usual.
That said, I’m happy to be buried in edits—my new day job—which, I must say, I love, love LOVE! In addition to all that, my debut novel, The Mistaken, launches in less than three weeks, along with my whirlwind blog tour, so while I’m drowning in promo, I’m lovin’ every minute of it! This is me with my head ready to spin right off my body!
What about you…have you ever found yourself drowning in pure euphoria?
