I'm back, Revision turned in - catching up!

Well, um, the subject pretty much says it all . . . ha, ha.

I had a MARVELOUS time at the LDStorymakers conference! Met so many blogger friends, met up with friends from last year, had some great conversations, listened to some amazing workshops!!! (On the Home Page, click the arrow buttons and you'll see me! I just saw that right now for the first time - Wow! It's like I'm really an author!)

AND I WON THE WHITNEY AWARD FOR THE BEST GENERAL YOUTH NOVEL OF 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am THRILLED to pieces about that and I have some fun pictures to show in my gorgeous purple gown and the high heeled purple shoes I coudl barely walk in . . . :-)

More details as the week progresses.

I feel a bit like I'm sick . . . I got home just a week ago and spent a frantic 6 days drafting over 100 new pages for a new plot line and finishing the tearing apart, piecing back together for my YA novel, GODDESS, which will come out in 2012 with Scholastic. A MAJOR re-imagining of the story - but oh, my, it is a *delicious*, forbidden romance!

I sent the manuscript off to my adorable and gorgeous and brilliant editor yesterday and now I'm crawling out from under my rock and blinking in the sunshine and making celebratory cookies, and feeding missionaries for dinner, and catching up on emails and Facebook and blogs, and errands, and paying bills - and got the May issue of SPELLBINDERS DONE.

I'm sort of a red-eyed demon mother/writer/wife right now.

Conference notes coming, pictures coming . . . TOMORROW! Well, or Thursday. See y'all then!

That's AWESOME, Deb! Thank you for telling me - and keep me posted on what the kids thinks about the book.

Oh, show them my book trailer - it turned out so cool - and tell them that I took the photography and the picture of that gator myself! :-)
