If it’s Friday, it must be France …
I’m still in Atlanta, Georgia, at the RWA National Conference with about 2000 other writers, editors, and agents. It’s not quite as good as being in France but it is definitely an unforgettable experience in itself. The workshops, discussions, keynotes, and pitch sessions have been informative and empowering. The networking has been inspiring and filled with unforgettable moments and a multitude of new friendships. To add to this, the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing session the other afternoon, raised over $53,000 to donate to various literacy programs in the U.S.
Meeting some of my “WANA sistas” in person after two years of connecting through the internet (after bonding in Kristen Lamb’s online blogging course in 2011), has put the finishing touch on this exceptional week.
However, while I am physically in Atlanta, there’s a part of me that is very much settled in Provence this weekend, thanks to the talented Julie Mautner and her brilliant website, The Provence Post. It’s been one of my favourite sites to visit for several years and to find my new novel, The Promise of Provence, featured there right now is such a thrill! If you have a moment, please stop by and join in her giveaway. Click right here and see what the buzz is all about! Leave a comment on Julie’s website and be entered to win a free book. I can’t wait to see who wins!
Bon weekend, tout le monde! What are your plans?
