If April showers bring May flowers...

I should be hip-deep in a glorious garden by now. Instead the temperature rose to 80 degrees one day and dropped back to 45 two days later. We do have tulips and jonquils, and the dogwoods and white hawthorns are gorgeous. The hummingbird scouts have been checking out our feeders for several days now. It shouldn't be long before we have a new flock to entertain us throughout the summer.

April was a very busy month for me. I spent a wonderful weekend at the Dreamin' in Dallas Conference. Lori Foster was our keynote speaker and what an inspiration she is, not to mention a great booksigning partner (we sat next to each other). Kresley Cole joined us as well, and was a delightful addition to our kickoff session.

A week later, I visited the RWA chapter in Wichita Falls, Texas. The ladies of the Red River Romance Writers were wonderful hosts and a very gracious audience.

I ended my travels for the month at the Romantic Times BookLovers Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. I'd never been to the city before, but I want to return. What a beautiful city! While at the Convention, I had the opportunity to meet with readers, some I knew from 'seeing' them online as well as new friends. I helped out with both the Beginning & Advanced Aspiring Writers courses, and enjoyed the eye-candy in the form of the very hunky gentlemen competing for Mr. Romance 2008. My personal favorite was John from Katy, Texas. Everything a cowboy should be: tall, broad-shouldered, soft-spoken, and looked great in a cowboy hat! Consider joining us in Orlando next year, April 22-26, 2009, for a wild week of books. You'll be glad you did.

I had so much fun at RT, I just have to share. For my May contest, I'm giving away the beautiful book tote I received at the convention, along with a bunch of books. Drop by Fresh Fiction and register to win!
