Turn Off The Oven


RWA conference time! I’m packing today, and first thing tomorrow I’ll be off to Texas where I’ll spend the night, dropping off my daughter with her grandparents to be spoiled rotten. I’ll go to Reno on Wednesday, where my schedule is packed with fun stuff like the massive literacy charity booksigning, lunch with the eHarlequin editors and authors, the National Readers Choice Awards ceremony, the Ritas, various meetings and cocktail parties, and the incomparable dance-all-night Harlequin bash. I’ll be seeing my editor and my friends, and having more fun with writers than should be legal. If you’re going to be there, look for me! I’ll leave Reno on Sunday for another night in Texas before getting home to North Carolina on Monday night, August 1st.

:bananadance:I’ll be back and blogging on Tuesday, August 2nd, with cool photos (I am a FABULOUS celebrity stalker at conferences!), more Hot Target, and a GIVEAWAY! Don’t miss it!! Be HERE, August 2nd!

For now, I leave you with the second installment of my eHarlequin online PAX read — Hot Target! (Click on the green “read” button at the bottom and scroll down to Hot Target.)

If you’re a writer wishing you were going to this year’s Romance Writers of America conference in Reno, my newest column, For the Left Behind, is for you at Romancing the Blog.

And one more! My latest DotMoms column, Life is a Deck of Pokemon Cards, is up, too.

Back soon! And keep an eye on Jill’s blog where she’ll be posting pics live from the conference! Oh–and the “Turn Off The Oven” title is for my husband, who never turns off the oven and may blow up the house while I’m gone. Honey, TURN OFF THE OVEN!

    Congrats on the Maggie final – Are you going to M&M? If not I could call the results in to you. I finaled in the unpubbed Short Contemp category.

    The clothes and shoes look fabulous. Hope you have a great time. We’ll miss you here.

  24. Eve says:

    Hey Suzanne, I’ve made a conscious effort not to get involved with a lot of blogging, only staying with Jill’s, but I couldn’t resist looking at your’s. Liked the shoes – bet they’d be a hit here in Texas. Hope you had fun in Reno – looked like it in Jill’s pictures. Also nice to see a lot of familiar names here – hey guys:wave:
