On August 2, 2005 at 9:16 am
Glad you had a fun at conference. I’m hoping I can make Atlanta next year. From where I’m at in California, its actually easier to get a flight to Atlanta than Reno!
I’m happy your back, Suzanne, missed your blog terribly. Put me in for the writer’s stuff.

:bananadance: Glad you’re back Suz! Hope you had a great time! I’m very interested in the writers’ drawing. :hyper: I have a couple of those handout books from ’03 and ’04 and they are a goldmine of information. I’d kill *not really* to have the one from Reno. The one’s I have have helped me greatly in my quest to become a writer. :yes:
On August 2, 2005 at 10:42 am
:wall: Well, now that I’ve looked at all your entries, it seems most peeps want the writers’ drawing. Please just consider me for both. Thanks.

SUZANNE!! WELCOME BACK! We missed you so much. Those weekly installments of Hot Target end way too soon and leave us in such suspense. Bet that was the plan, huh? 😉
Glad to have you back. Please put me in the drawing for the reader’s pack.
On August 2, 2005 at 12:37 pm
Hello, Suzanne! It was so nice to meet you there. Welcome back! Please put me in for the reader prize.
On August 2, 2005 at 12:42 pm
WELCOME home! I’d stay to gab, but we’re embarking on a 19 hour drive tonight to Virginia to hang out for a while. :shocked: I need a rubber chicken to whap my husband with when he haggles over map routes! Knew I shoulda made time for Reno! Luckily i can take my laptop and connect to my mom’s network so I don’t miss all the blogosphere’s fun for a week!
Glad you made it back, and that you had fun! I’m interested in both giveaways, but especially the writer’s one!
On August 2, 2005 at 12:44 pm
I’m so glad you’re back!!! :bananadance: You were sorely missed!!!
I’m greedy. Enter me in both. 😆

I’m really enjoying your blog too. Glad you got back okay, even after having to stop in this humid land they call Texas. Looks like you, Jill, Kacey, Toni and the gang had fun!:smile:
I’d like to enter the readers giveaway, although as an aspiring writer the writer giveaway would be fun.

Welcome home Suzanne. It was great to meet you in Reno. I had a nice time. I got to meet lots of fabulous authors and bought some wonderful books. Please enter me in the Reader’s drawing. A girl can never have too many books or too much chocolate!:rotfl:

Welcome back! Miss you already!
On August 2, 2005 at 2:15 pm
Hi Suzanne welcome back! It was so great to see you in Reno. Don’t enter me in the contest cause I was there. My chocolate statue is in my frezer and the children have been given strict instructions not to eat it! I expect I’ll be gone in a month:lol:
BTW My Mom loved The Beast! It’s next in my TBR pile!:wink:
On August 2, 2005 at 2:25 pm
Sounds like a great time at conference – I’m hoping for Atlanta! But the writers giveaway would sure help cure the non-conference blues for now:smile: Have a good one!
On August 2, 2005 at 2:39 pm
Welcome back Suzanne! Missed reading your blog while you were gone.
Such great giveaways :o) I’m a writer (have the R’s to prove it lol, even a fresh one this morning)
Off to read PAX!
On August 2, 2005 at 2:53 pm
Ooo, enter me in the writer’s giveaway. Just got a rejection on a revision request, so obviously I need all the help I can get!:cry:

I’d like to be entered into the Readers’ drawing.
On August 2, 2005 at 3:36 pm
My Rita staue didn’t last through the ceremony. LOL I decapitated her pretty darn quick. LOL and I can tell you, she was tasty!
It was wonderful to meet you in person, Suzanne!
On August 2, 2005 at 4:06 pm
I could have sworn I responded to this once already. Weird…
Well, I don’t see my entry, so if it turns out I went blind or something, my apologies for the double post. 😉
Anyway, I’m glad you’re back, Suzanne. I missed reading your entries. I look forward to hearing your run-down of the conference.
Please enter me in the writer’s giveaway.

Welcome back! I’m putting my ticket in for the reader pack.
On August 2, 2005 at 8:57 pm
Welcome back, Suzanne. Nice to hear you’re back in one piece. As much fun as travelling can be (except for having to change planes or trains–in my book that’s even worse–), it’s always wonderful to be back in your own surroundings. Glad you had fun.:cool:
I’d just love to have the reader’s package. Sounds great. So does the writer’s pack but I know an actual writer will get more out of it. :yes:
And I agree your blog is addictive. I really missed it.:wink:
