NYC ad RWA... Here I Come!

The bad news is: I got absolutely NO writing done the past two days.

The good news is: I cleaned the house, created a few promo postcards and business cards, decided on and printed out my conference agenda, bought a couple of special gifts, organized and packed all my promo and clothes (mostly). Just a couple of things to tie up and I am ready for the RWA National Conference! I leave tomorrow morning. Hello, NYC. Here I come!  For more specifics on the conference and mega-honkin'-big book fair, see my previous post.

I'll try to post some pics and news from RWA, but things get darn hectic. Be sure to check my Facebook page. I can upload pics from my phone straight there!

Before I go, I want to share the two 'mock' covers made for me by my sister, Barb, aka Elle J Rossi. She's not only a fabulous writer, but quite the graphic artist.

These are the images I used to make up my 'coming soon' postcards.

For my new Steampunk Romance series from NAL: The Glorious V…

What's Now, What's Coming, What's Cool

It's mid-June. Mid-June! How did that happen? Watch, I'll go to write a post tomorrow, or what seems like tomorrow and it will be OCTOBER!  Remember when you were a kid and it seemed like the days slogged by. You felt like you were in school forever. Felt like you were thirteen. For. Ever. When would sixteen roll around? Better yet, eighteen? Now I blink and it's three months later. Now I think abut upcoming birthdays and wonder how to put on the brakes.

Forgive the ramble.

So here it is mid-June. The biggest news in my life is that as of this past Monday, after five years of working full time at my local library in addition to writing two books a year, I have gone part-time! Wahoo! More time to write. More time to live. Why not quit the library period, you ask? A couple of reasons. A) I still need the additional income. B) I wanted to keep my foot in the door should I ever need to go back full time. C) As you can imagine, working in a library is just about the coolest job…
