I went to Candace Havens' book signing today and had a blast meeting some new people and fellow writers. Candy is just a doll, and I of course had her sign my copy of Charmed & Dangerous. It was such a charming group surrounding her, and I felt so at home and welcome! There aren't many social environments that make me uncomfortable, but I can definitely tell when I am a total outcast and when I belong, and I really felt true comfort there.
Rosemary Clement-Moore was also there, and let me tell you, such a sweetheart! I've added both Hell Week and The Demon King and I to my Christmas list assuming I don't buy them before the holiday arrives (when I actually get some more cash --go freelancing!--).
As for my current progress, I'm continuing research on my new YA fantasy (urban maybe? not sure yet) which contains Greek Mythology . . . and not just a little. But first priority has been my current query and synopsis. I've decided my query needs to be better and am working on that, as well as figuring out just how to make my synopsis the best ever. I just hope my husband still finds me attractive when I have no hair left!
And my pregnancy, oi vey, my stomach is killing me! I totally should not be carrying this much weight around! How on Earth did I do it with Averie? I gained way more with her because of early signs of preclampsia (I may have spelled that incorrectly), but for some reason this pregnancy seems more . . . painful! The constant poking (and she managed to tickle me somehow the other day more than once) isn't helping, either. My back hurts too. I know, I know, I'm being a baby. But dangit, if I want to complain I can! :-P I know she's worth it, of course, but it still doesn't make me anymore comfortable. I'm only 29 weeks and I feel like I'm well into my 30's.
Then again, always a good reason to ask for a relaxing massage from hubby. One of the many reasons being pregnant is GREAT (his massages are to die for!)
