I will be there on February 22nd, along with a whole bunch of my Rhode Island Author colleagues and friends. PJ O’Rourke, Debbie Macomber and… Dr. Ruth Westheimer are the featured authors, which should be interesting to say the least. There are also 20 workshops/talks being offered.
I am a proud member of the pretty new ARIA (Association of Rhode Island Authors), and a bunch of us will be there with copies of our books for sale.
So if you’re in the area take a stop in!
Come to the Big Book Club Getaway at Mohegan Sun this Weekend!
Okay I may have not done the best job here, but I needed to put a video together quickly for the Unicorn Writers Conference in March, where copies of A Girl from the Hill will be available for sale. I’m very excited about the opportunity to participate in this great conference again, and this time from a real live author standpoint.
Please let me know what you think of the video – it kind of blips off at the end and it’s just a simple slide show with music, but this is not my foray at all.
Also, if you’re interested in attending the conference in Portland CT this March, here is the link to their site. There are workshops, Editors, Agents, all there to help new writers get started.
Happy Birthday, Lewis Carroll!.
I love this blog – always something well thought out and well written.
Happy Happy LC! From the jaws that bite and the claws that catch!
I’ve been listening to a lot of Elvis lately. The all Elvis satellite radio station blares in my car most mornings, much to Julia’s dismay. After dropping her off I often indulge more in Elvis the religion, the god. I get pumped listening to Suspicious Minds, I listen to the testimonials of people touched by The King, whether a lei or a lay, that play in between medly’s, live performances from Vegas, and interviews with this soft-spoken, sweet humble sounding man with a cute, giggly laugh.
Sure, he’s a little before my time. When I was growing up he started growing into that big white rhinestone studded jumpsuit on his ever-expanding pelvis. Except for that 1968 special when he wore that black leather outfit. http://www.allmusic.com/album/nbc-tv-special-68-comeback-mw0000654106. I remember that jumpsuit to this day because he looked so damn hot. But I feel like need to pay tribute to The King, to make up for lost time. Especially now that getting ready for work each morning feels more and more like I’m slipping into my own too tight jumpsuit and cape. But since I never made a get to, I am not exactly sure how to make a come back.

My friend Jovina strikes gold again with this post. Coffee is almost a sacred drink to me, probably because I’m addicted to it. But after reading this, my 2014 resolution is now to drink better quality coffee, even if only on the weekends. Dunkin Donuts serves me well, but coffee can be a heck of a lot better- don’t you think?
A big thank you to everyone who has stopped in to read this blog over the past year. Considering I fell off the face of the blogisphere during the last half of 2013, I think these numbers are just fantastic, and I am very grateful to you all.
Special mention goes to those of my blog buddies with the highest number of comments this past year. You have helped me feel confident that I’m contributing something, however small.

And here’s the report – feel free to take a look.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,000 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 50 trips to carry that many people.
