I am past ready to do something fun. I want to meet people in person, especially readers. I need to be out in the world.
For that reason, I’m heading to Orlando December 16 – 19 for the Booklovers Convention.
I know it is a few weeks before Christmas. That is a stressful time and yet, I’ve been through stressful times over the past almost two years. This will be a fun stressful time where readers and writers can celebrate these books we love to read. Besides, the stress is that I might not get all my packages wrapped or miss a neighborhood party.
But I do think taking time for myself is important. I believe I must indulge in talking books, listening to writers share their journeys and thoughts, and just enjoy some silliness that comes with a national conference. There will be workshops, parties, games, and more than done chance to dance. Yes, dance! Remember that?
This will be a slimmer Booklovers convention than in the past. It is a few weeks before the holidays . . . but I like that. It gives me a chance to really connect with people, and that is what I yearn for—connection. (Plus the introvert side of me gets overwhelmed by huge crowds.)
I hope you can join me, even if it is just for Saturday’s big book signing. The details, and a list of the wonderful authors planning to attend, are at www.booklovers.con
