A little map will do ya

So I did something different on Saturday. I went to a book signing! I’d never been to one. Susie and I went – it was Michelle Miles, and she was at the Barnes & Noble at North East Mall in Hurst. I’d never been to Hurst either, at least not on purpose. LOL I got off of work at 1:00 and met Susie at my apartment and then we were off! I had printed out one of those Google driving directions things to help us, as neither one of us really knew where we were going. Have you ever used one of those? They are useless and awfully vague with their directions. But I guess we did okay since we only got lost 3 times. Hmmmm. Anyway, Michelle’s new book is A Break in Time, the second in the Ransom and Fortune Adventure series. (I have got to find a copy of the first one, oops.) So we saw Michelle, Susie bought a copy of her book and I bought two. Why? ‘Cuz I’m going to give an autographed copy of the book away. Not right now, probably Wednesday when I decide how to do it. But I digress … after getting our books, Susie and I had lunch with Ames and Lynn at someplace called Logan’s Roadhouse. Interesting place and the food was good. So was the company. I had forgotten how great it was to hang out with Ames, and how invigorating talking about writing can be. That’s what I’m hoping for with Yellow Rose – the stimulus that I get from being around other writers. It could be just the thing to kick my writing ass into gear.

So, that was my Saturday. Sunday was spent doing nothing and watching the Cowboys whip some Cleveland Browns butt! Altogether a great weekend.

How was yours?

Sound like a fun Saturday.
Didn't do much here this weekend. Was aining and chilly so I just read and read and then read some more. I got through three Desire books and working on so Spice Briefs. Finished Megan Hart's Reason Enough. I haven't decided which I'll read next Amanda McIntyre's Mirror, Mirror or Saskia Walker's Caught in the Act but both will get read in the next day or two. I think I only turned on the tv for a half hour yesterday to check out Hole in the Wall.

I love going to book signings. They are fun and you get to meet others who enjoy the author's work.

Looks like you had a good weekend.

I'm a little jealous, I have never been to a book signing. *pout* It sounds like you had a great weekend. I got back to reading again and the best part is I'm enjoying it!

My Steelers won too.
