High-Tech Workshop

This past weekend I had a great time presenting a workshop on building websites and book video trailers to the authors at Dallas Area Romance Authors, a chapter of Romance Writers of America. I took my tech guy, Scott, with me because I had designed a multi-media presentation with DVDs, Internet, PowerPoint, and sound. It got pretty complicated, but worked great. We only had a couple of glitches (like losing the Internet connection) but, hey, it was a great time for a bathroom break while we fixed it. About 60 writers, very enthusiastic and they laughed in all the right places. Thank heavens. Here's a picture.

It's a Hot Time in Texas!

My second book, A Hot Time in Texas, is available on weeks early! Hard to believe it's already here. I haven't even been able to finish all my promotional ideas for A Different Drum and now I need to start on the second one. Who'd would ever have thought that I'd have THAT problem! What an embarrassment of riches.

I feel so blessed this summer with all that's happened with the books and the documentary for Good Sam. I'm just trying to maximize the potential of all this. I would hate to feel like I did with Cherish that I just never did enough.

So, here I am, thinking I will keep a low propfile about Hot Time for a little while until Drum gains a little more ground.

So everyone, keep it under your hat.
