Yay, I found the booksigning info. If anyone happens to be in the Raleigh, North Carolina area–I’ll be autographing The Beast Within at a “Booksigning/Author Chat” at the Barnes and Noble on 8431 Brier Creek Parkway in Raleigh from 10 am to noon today with Virginia Kantra, Sabrina Jeffries, Cynthia Cooke, Cindy Holby, and Emilie Rose. I mostly find booksignings semi-painful because I get asked more often where the bathroom is than I get asked to sign a book, but this one should be fun!

And, another sigh of relief. Had to take Buttercup back to the vet this week for a test I can’t spell or pronounce but it was to determine whether or not he had diabetes. His glucose had been high in several tests, and this was to be the final test to settle it. The vet had told me that, in cats, stress can cause glucose levels to be abnormally high during vet visits. Hello? They have to call in two assistants and put a muzzle on him to give him a shot. I THINK HE FINDS THE VET’S OFFICE STRESSFUL. But, to be sure, I went ahead with the test. The vet called last night to let me know that it was negative. My Butterbooboo does NOT have diabetes! HE’S JUST MENTALLY UNSTABLE!

Tonight, I get to go to a party!!! I never go to parties! Harlequin Intrigue author Cynthia is having a big bash at her house tonight. I hear there will be margarita machines and naked cover models! Okay, just margarita machines. (Sorry about that naked cover models tease–man, I’m going to get some Google search hits outta that one!) Want me to bring back pictures anyway?:rotfl:

    (But I’m really disappointed about the lack of naked cover models….)

  17. Saundra M says:

    What??? No naked cover models???:hissyfit:
    Have a great time at the party.. and thanks so much for the book. I’ll read it tomorrow.

  18. Suzanne says:

    Robyn–yay! No, I haven’t checked my email since last night. I just got home from the booksigning. Yippee–I bet they’ll let me go ahead and put it on backorder then. I’ll go check now! Thanks!:lol:

  19. Lis says:

    Hope the booksigning went well.
    And yay on Buttercup’s test results :bananadance: That’s great news!

  20. Beth C says:

    Okay, I admit it. You sucked me in with the Naked Cover Model title. :wigglebrow:

    Glad to hear Buttercup is okay! Yay! :bananadance: Have fun at the party!

  21. Lynn Daniels says:

    Yay for Buttercup! :bananadance: Have fun at the party, and definitely bring back pictures–whether the cover models are naked or not. :shocked:

  22. Gina says:

    Great news on Buttercup. Have fun at the party. Kidnap a cover model and send him to me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also wanted to let you know I got my copy of The Honeymoon Man in yesterday’s mail!

  23. Michelle says:

    Glad Buttercup is okay. Have a great time with the nakey cover models! Give them a smooch for me. :hyper:

  24. ruby55 says:

    If we can’t figure out why and where we’re sick, how should a cat? I’m glad she’s all right. Diabetes is not fun for either man or cat. Do animals get insulin too if they get diabetes?

    Hope you’re having fun at the party and hope there are some surprises! I figure you’re there right now or at least on your way.

  25. ruby55 says:

    Sorry about the “she” for Buttercup. Not wearing my glasses and things like that (no s) sometimes don’t get through to me. I really didn’t mean to insult you, Buttercup.

    I see I missed getting a book by one number since I was 49 instead of 50. Close but no cigar. Not that I’m complainging. :loser:

  26. Stacey115 says:

    So glad to hear about buttercup. I find that most cast are at least a little mental …:rolleyes:

    I won! Thank you for the book!

    Have fun at your party.

  27. Gladys Paradowski says:

    Thanks for the book. I will read it when I can concentrate a bit better. My only sister was buried Friday and I am still in a daze. Hope you have a great party.

  28. Suzanne says:

    Gladys, I’m so sorry to hear that! I wish you all the best in remembering your sister.

    Sigrun, Buttercup was named after a female character on the “Powerpuff Girls” cartoon show, so he has long ago given up on his masculinity, LOL!

    And I just wanted to say–I always write confirmation emails to let everyone know that I got their address and that their book etc is on the way. Between the booksigning this morning and the party this evening, I was home only briefly this afternoon so I haven’t been able to get to my email, but I =will= get to it first thing tomorrow. I apologize for the delay!! I actually left the house for once, LOL. (And I got a new outfit. It was fun!!)

  29. Danica says:

    I wanna go to a party! I hope you have fun!
