Yes, it’s been ages and I’m so ashamed. Since my last blog 3 months ago, I’ve completed my move to CA and am loving it! To all you Californians who have welcomed me, thank you! And watch out, because I drive just like you.
I’ve also completed something else, a new book called Rhapsody, now in the hands of my hitwoman editor. It’s always a marvelous feeling to get a book off my desk, but this one felt even better than most because it’s the first in a long, long time.
A few things going on eventwise:
- November 8, 6:30 CT: I’ll be calling in to the Tulsa Book Club via Skype to talk about Without Warning, Book 1 in the Shaken Series. Those of you within shouting distance of Tulsa need to get there … if the ground isn’t rocking & rolling, that is. Seriously, how ironic is it they picked my earthquake book weeks ago? So you can blame all that shaking on Heather! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for directions.
- November 14, 6:00 ET: The Stonewall National Museum & Archive in Ft. Lauderdale opens its exhibition, Our Stars, celebrating celebrities (that’s what you do with celebrities, right?) in the LGBT community. On display are historic & personal artifacts from the likes of Melissa Etheridge, Lily Tomlin, Elaine Noble and … me! The request was for something out of the ordinary and unique that would help museum visitors connect with me on a personal level. You all know how much I love hiking … I donated the ragged boots I wore to the summit of Kilimanjaro in 2001 along with a signed copy of Worth Every Step. Yup, they’ll be right there in a display case. Let’s hope they’re hermetically sealed … wouldn’t want them to peel the paint off Melissa Etheridge’s guitar.
- November 16, 6:00 PT: I’ll be reading & chatting with Betty’s List Book Salon at Duboce Park Cafe in the Castro. (That’s in San Francisco, at 2 Sanchez.) If I find out later you were nearby and didn’t come … 😦
Now that I’m settled into my new place (though my sofa hasn’t shipped yet) and finished with my book, I’m looking forward to a new adventure. It’s time to get myself down to the shelter for a new cat! Wish me luck!!
