Chicago Bound

As always time has blurred. I'd meant to share the following news much earlier but then I got caught up in preparing for the conference itself and . . . well, better late than never.

I'm leaving in a couple of hours for the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Chicago. I will be there all week--attending workshops, hosting workshops, signing at the gigantic book fair, and dancing the night away at the parties.
