2010 Celtic Festival

So I just wrapped up at the 2010 Celtic Festival in Buffalo, MO. I had a great time today, chatting up my neighbor vendor, Rich and Kathy (the lye soap maker) and the sword demonstrator, the leather maker, the jewelry maker...And then there was "Tammy", the kewl blonde who drove me to the gas station so we could sneak back some booze. I mean seriously...a Celtic Festival with no ale?!?! What's up with that?

The honored clan was Clan MacLeod, which to my luck is Calin's clan in Highland Dragon, so I knew a thing or two about that particular clan. It was a beautiful day, though it threatened rain once or twice. I was lucky enough to be under a tree, so the sprinkles didn't get me. :) Now the bad news about this tree...I must have had a dozen "creatures" fall straight into my bodice. Ewww!

I was surprised how many readers there were there. Sales were good! Although, some folks didn't read "Romance"...GASP! are a few pics:

Where did my summer go?!

Wow! I've been neglecting my blog! I've been busy writing, editing, starting new books...
I've turned in edits on HIS MAGICK TOUCH which comes out in January. I started a new novella, MY SISTER'S BETROTHED. I'm 13k in and enjoying it verra much. The hero, Magnus Sutherland, has a reputation with the maidens, and he has certainly proven to be a wicked rogue to write about. :P

On the contest front:
  • HIGHLAND DRAGON is an Award of Merit recipient in the Historical category of the HOLT Medallion contest.
  • CARIBBEAN SCOT takes second place in the 2010 URWA Great Beginnings Contest out of 213 entries.
    takes second place in the Romance Through the Ages Contest and received an Honorable mention in
    Passionate Ink's Stroke of Midnight Contes
I had a fabulous time in Orlando this summer at the National RWA Convention. We did Epcot much food, so little time to eat it. LOL I love conference because I get a chance to meet up with all those people I talk to online everyday. Plus, I'm always so motivated to write when I get home. Here are a few pics:
