Friday and the Gift of Reading!

I'm headed out the door soon for a quick trip out of state (tons of driving, unfortunately, but I get to see one of my very cute sons for his birthday tomorrow. Yep, he's a 9/11 baby) so saying goodbye until Tuesday. Taking my laptop with me becaues I am STILL working on this maddening second draft due Monday to my editor at Scholastic. I have this irrational/rational (?)  fear that I'm making the manuscript worse . . .

Here's a quick round-up of book signing events the next couple of weeks:

Wednesday, September 15th
: Speaking and signing at the Albuquerque Retired Officer's Women's Club Luncheon at the Cooperage Restaurant. Very excited to meet them all! One of my brand new friends, Glenda, arranged this. She's not a writer, but a retired Stanford professor and SO supportive of my new book,
The Healing Spell. (Click the link for some new wonderful reviews on Goodreads - I am SO thrilled!)

Friday, September 17th at 5:30
I'll be at Alamosa Books in Albuquerque for a Bayou Gumbo Book Party! Come eat gumbo, Cajun cakes and eclairs and take a ride in a pirogue! Book talk and signing, too.

Saturday, September 25th 3-5 p.m. I'll be back at Alamosa Books
for a very special TWELVE AUTHOR kick-off to The Gift of Reading, a fund-raiser for high-risk kids with parents in the prison programs. Book donations will be collected at the store until December 5th and distributed to these kids for Christmas. Please click the links, this is a really super book fund-raising drive to help the cause of literacy.

Saturday, October 2, from 6-8 p.m. I'll be signing and partying at Deseret Bookstore in Albuquerque, NM
. Girls Night Out evening!

Peeps - you really need to come to Albuquerque - so much to see and do! Balloon Fiesta is the first two weekends in October, too, and we're having gorgeous weather!

I know what you mean. I'm afraid to cut the wrong stuff. We all know the second draft had better be brilliant, right?

Kaylie: Absolutely the second draft had better be brilliant. Especially when I'm only getting two drafts before sending to my editor . . . big major gulp here!

Christine: Wish you could be there, too! And thanks!
