Check out the latest book by Ruth Logan Herne! Romantic Times gives her another 4.5 star review! My review will follow soon, but in the meantime, check out the blurb and run to the store for a copy!
Single mom Rita Slocum wants to get her life back on track. Taking things one day at a time seems doable—especially with Brooks Harriman at her side. Brooks has been there for her through good times and bad. But she's always been leery of getting too close to the broad-shouldered woodworker who keeps his past locked away. Now that Rita's opening her own bakery, she needs him more than ever. If only Brooks would open up his life—and his heart—to Rita.
This year, the Romance Writers of America is hosting the annual conference in Orlando, Florida. What a hoot! Two thousand romance writers - published and aspiring - cruising around Disney World. Ahh, the mouse will never be the same again.
If you've never been to a RWA conference, you're missing the experience of a lifetime. Endless workshops to help hone your craft, celebrity authors mingling with the mutlitude over chocolates and coffee, book give aways galore. It's as close to heaven on earth as this inspirational author can get : )
Am I there?
Not this year.
But friends are emailing and blogging about their adventures helping me feel right there in all the action. Almost.
Not only my writing career, although that is tops on my list.
But also my day job as our county 4-H secretary.
I mention this because our office is heading into the most hectic time of the year...the week before the County Fair. So much preparation depends on this week to make the Fair go smoothly for everyone involved and all who visit.
This is the week I prepare all the materials used for judging day -- the culmination of the hard work and efforts of our intrepid 4-H'ers who have spent a year honing skills on selected projects and are ready to display them to the public. Along with the verbal interview with a judge, of course : )
Ribbons are all waiting to be awarded.
Display racks are being set up as we speak.
Ahhhh, the Fair is just around the corner. I can hardly wait!!
Come join us if you're anywhere near Longmont, CO Aug 3-7th. We'd be happy to see you!!
