There are very few reasons to go to Orlando in June…but a writer would go to the ends of the earth to meet up with the nation’s librarians. The annual conference of the American Library Association gives us a chance to tell the most avid readers about upcoming books. Here are a few highlights of my visit:
2. Where else do you need crowd control for meeting writers? In the #HarperCollins booth…
4. #alaac16 had its serious moments. Check out this beautiful message wall. $5 was donated for every message that appeared on the wall. Really. Which is a big deal, when you consider how many writers were wandering around. I wrote SEVERAL messages in support of #Orlando.
5. My vote for most beautiful booth goes to #LibraryOfCongress.
I was on a panel with some of my favorite writers–Shelley Shephard Grey, Heather Graham, Meg Rusoff, Brenda Novak and Mary Kay Andrews.

…never to forget your anniversary.
Really! I’m so happy to see my short story, The Key Ingredient, in that #1 Bestseller slot on Amazon. Being on the same list as Tim O’Brien and George R.R. Martin is no small thrill.
Thank you so much to all who downloaded this little tidbit. Just a heads up–it’s a short story. SHORT. It’s an introduction to the irrepressible Annie Rush, star of Family Tree…and there’s a bonus excerpt from the novel.

My anniversary is coming up, so I thought I’d revisit and update a post for you. This was a fun assignment from my local chamber of commerce. I had to come up with ten romantic things to do in my town. My overachiever tendencies came out, and I listed 11. Comment below–what’s romantic about your town?
