The first time I found my local RWA chapter and researched meeting times and made plans to attend, my husband had to kick me out the door. I tend to go by that principle of a body at rest...y'know... stays at rest? Yes. And I was quite content to stay at rest inside my writing cave and to pretend my little world was real. But he made me go and unknowingly...
he released the secret Kraken inside of me!
You see, I have an extroverted twin personality to complement
imaginative introverted me.
Megaphone Me promotes, supports, markets, and blabbers to anyone who will lend an ear for ten seconds about
MY LATEST FAVORITE BOOK AND AUTHOR!!
Who needs a megaphone? Y'all...
I. Am. Megaphone.
So here's my embarrassing story....
The first time I was in the presence of a real, live author who had made it! - one with contracts and deadlines and a tired but happy smile on her face - I rubbed her arm. Yes, I rubbed poor, unsuspecting [no I'm not telling her name!] arm like she was a genie lamp hoping some of her writing genius and publishing luck would rub onto my hand so I could be published and rich and famous too.
I know - I know...
WHAT WAS I THINKING???
|I have since learned to mind my manners (read: I keep my hands to myself).|
The reason I confess this totally weird and embarrassing thing I did is because I want to warn you:
If you go to the Romance Magicians' Luncheon in November 1 and you are in the same room with totally fabulous Sylvia Day, Naima Simone, Carla Swafford, Debby Giusti, Kathy Bone, M.V. Freeman, Pam Mantovanni, Christine Glover, Lexi George, Hildie McQueen, and
many many more... <<<<subtle registration link hint here
DO NOT rub their arms thinking a Genie (or some sexy kilted hero-private investigator-19th century naval officer -cowboy -billionaire) will appear!
It does NOT work that way!
You MUST buy their books! Or check them out from your local library.
|Ok! Group Hugs are acceptable...|
As long as you buy a ticket first! Line forms behind me.
Since I am pre- published and I want to give away a book to a wonderful commenter who likes to read and/or write fantasy romance, I am giving an ecopy
if you tell me something embarrassing you did when you met an author or celebrity out there in the real world.
(Or don't tell me; it's okay- we're all friends here.)
