Interview at WOW, Blueberry News, American Idol

Happy Monday!

Today I'm a guest over at WOW! Women on Writing. Jodi Webb interviewed me and we're holding a Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning book giveaway! Come on over! You don't even have to be a woman to win!

Blueberry news: Last Thursday, I turned in my rough draft for The Hotel of Blueberry Goodness, and Friday morning, my editor sent me an email saying this: I was blown away by the story. Hooray! and YAY! Revisions are next.

In other news, I had an epiphany over the weekend: American Idol is not a contest of who sings the best. It's a contest of whose fans dial in their votes the fastest and are willing to do so for the full two hour voting window. Adam Lambert fans, we cannot have a repeat of last week.

With this in mind, I have been doing finger push-ups and thumb squats, twenty reps, three times a day. Timed drills on my land line and ATT cell phone prove that my speed is improving. LOOK OUT, NON-ADAM fans--I'm feeling AMBIDEXTROUS!

Sandy N., MAC, AprilGarden, AnnaG.--I'm talking to you! Team Adam has been mobilized!

Way to go on your first (?) deadline of Blueberry. I cannot WAIT to read it!!!! As for Adam, I was just waiting for you to post on this. When I watched that little disaster last Wednesday, I was screaming at the TV "if they vote him off, I'm boycotting this show!". Jeez. What were people thinking???

Hi Sandy!
And I looked to see if you posted on your blog! Haha! We must mobilize.

Thank you for the congrats on my rough draft deadline. It was the first deadline and as always happens, the characters surprise me once I put my fingers to the keyboard.

Looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday!

Charles, Thank you! You know how good it feels to get past that first hurdle!

Terri,
Thanks for coming over from WOW! I appreciate your kind words and hope you enjoy the novel.
