Happy Fourth!!!

Hey, all!!


I'm finally back from NYC and the RWA Conference! WOW, I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say...



it was THE BEST CONFERENCE EVAH!!!



So much to talk about but so little time because of the holiday, so it'll have to wait. (Plus, I haven't quite unpacked or downloaded my pictures yet)



Gosh, I have so much to say! Things I can't wait to share:




*my office was painted red while I was away and I LOVE it.



*I got to meet Susan Elizabeth Phillips in person. (FUNNY story about that to come)



*I've become a new fan of Sourcebooks




*I'm feeling SO refreshed and recharged and ready to create a business plan for my writing.



*I've come away with a new perspective on social media




*I know there's more but I can't think...




Anyhew, I've missed you all! My Internet was acting up this weekend so this is the first chance I've had to check in. Today I'm hitting the beach and taking one of my MANY free books I took home from the conference.




Did I miss anything while I was away? Please share and give me some gossip. :-)

I'm newly returned from a trip to New Orleans, where I met Kate DiCamillo. What a treat! I share your enthusiasm for my time away and a renewed perspective. :)

I was away,too. Good to be back, right? And I'm glad you had such a great conference. I'll be eager to hear all about it.

No gossip but glad you had a great time. Followed along a little bit via Twitter but felt like a voyeur so I had to stop. Hate that it was NYC and I didn't get to go. Next year, LA. Ugh!

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds like it was absolutely wonderful!

Caryn Caldwell said...

I'm so glad you had such a fun trip! Can't wait to hear all about it (complete with pictures). I wish I could have gone this year, but I have definite plans for next year. Maybe I'll see you there. :-)

Laurence Brown said...

Even I've heard that this was the best year as far as RWA was concerned, I'm really sad that I couldn't make it to the conference, I was in constant touch with fellow writers and friends through twitter & FB updates, but I know what I missed..

TheBookGirl said...

Wow, sounds like you had a great conference, and you had some nice surprises when you got back :)

Hope you enjoyed your day at the beach with all your new books!

Rula Sinara said...

Can't wait to see your pics!

Glad you had a great time! Looking forward to hearing all your stories! :)

Diane Craver said...

I'm glad you enjoyed the conference. And cool you brought home books to read! Will check back to hear more great things about your trip!

Julie Stone said...

um, hello? You met me?!? that didn't make the highlights? Kidding, but I have to say our dinner was one of my highlights--I have many things to pick your brain about, but I am still trying to catch up on laundry--we will chat soon!

Diane Craver said...

Sorry to butt in here but, Julie, I had to check out your website and you live close to me. I live outside of Owensville, OH. And I know Shelley - she's given me advice plus we did a book signing together at Union Twp. It's a small world. Jennifer and I share a publisher.

Your website is lovely and your books look awesome, Julie!

Linda G. said...

Glad you had such a wonderful time at the RWA conference! And your new red office sounds fantastic. :)
