FRIDAY FIVE (The Everything’s Rosy Edition)

1) OMG, you guys, The Body Finder 3 is finished!!! Can I just say halle-freakin-lujah?!?! When my husband finished reading it, he came into my office and high-fived me. I’m taking that as a good sign.

2) It’s also not called “The Body Finder 3” any longer. It has a name. A real, honest to goodness, official title. And, no, I’m not sharing that title yet.

3) I went to RT (Romantic Times) last week where I ate and drank and visited with some of my favorite people in the whole wide world. I also got a bunch of books and all of my baggage was overweight. I totally paid for it too…both in overage fees and sore shoulders. SO worth it!

Why, yes, that is Graveminder. And Sophie Jordan, Merrie Destefano, and Tara Lynn Childs.

(I sorta loved the giant sign!!!)

4) I also got to meet my longtime author crush Cassandra Clare. I somehow managed NOT to physically assault her with my kisses and hugs and puppy-like enthusiasm. But I thought about it. A lot.

5) And the best part of the trip??? The way-too-cool (how is she ALWAYS so put-together?!) Melissa de la Cruz hosted a fabtabulous author party at her house…AND since it was my birthday, she got me a cake. I totally thought about kissing and hugging her too. A lot. Thanks, Mel, you totally rock!!!!

I think you should email me the title. :-) Glad to hear you had a good time at the convention and yay for cake!

Love the peek into the fabulous life of an author. ;) And so cool that you got to meet one of your author crushes (I met one of mine, Stephanie Perkins, last weekend! Squee!)!

Happy birthday!
