Just finished the YA book Lips Touch Three Times by Laini Taylor. If you haven't read it, do! It's darkish and delicious.
I also highly recommend the author's first two books: Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer and its sequel Dreamdark: Silksinger. Not as darkish, but just as delish! :-)
This woman can write - and she has a fabulous imagination.
Enjoy! And any librarians on my flist - please check these out and consider getting them if you're able. (No, I don't know the author - I just think she's deserving.)
I won't be able to come to WriterCon. :-(
As some of you know, my mom is 'failing' and is under hospice care. She is having a minor procedure Saturday morning and, as her health care POA, I need to be close at hand. I gave a lot of thought to whether availability on a cell phone counted as 'close at hand' and had to admit it didn't.
Of course, I am beyond disappointed. I'm looking forward to reading all the con reports and seeing pics, but even that won't make up for not being able to see everyone and be a part of the fun.
I hope all of you who are going have a terrific weekend!
Four times in my life I've shed tears upon learning of the death of a celebrity. I cried for Walt Disney, for Jim Hensen, for Princess Diana and tonight, for Michael Jackson. Michael's music provided some of the soundtrack of my life. We were of an age and, for the most part, his music made me happy; made me want to move and dance and sing along. His life, I thought, was in so many, many ways sad and tragic, but his talent was simply immense.
And yeah, it might sound cliche, but I'm going to say it anyway; Rest in Peace, Michael. Thank you for the songs and the dancing that gave me so much joy. Your talent impacted the worlds of music and dance and will not be forgotten.
I've been asked if there's interest in holding a Spuffy get together at WriterCon 2009 in Minneapolis.
Just read that Sarah Michelle Gellar & some hubby are expecting a baby in the fall. Congrats to them.
Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!
Yeah, woo-hoo and other assorted expressions of happiness and excitement. It's WriterCon 2009!!!

The first two WriterCon's were unforgettable and I'm looking forward to adding new memories to those I gathered at each of them.
