An author was telling us the story about how her pre-schooler was helping hang Christmas ornaments on the tree with momma and daddy. She exclaimed, "We're happy hookers!"
Gotta love kids and their priceless expressions.
I loved the notion and it gave me the whole idea for the workshop. :) One author's husband wanted to take the class. Not to learn to write, but just because he loved the title. You see? It hooked! :) When I was asked what I was teaching in New Orleans, both by patrons and coworkers, I said, "Happy Hookers!"
Lots of surprised looks and laughs. "Hooking, you know, as in writing."
It's already March 1, the leaves are coming out on the trees, we've had 97 degrees and a high of 60, and 45 degrees in three days. My daffodils are popping up all over the place. It's that time of year when who knows what to wear when we wake up to start our day! But the real shocker is how did it come to be March already? Does anyone else wonder this???
A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing is due out now, and the jaguars are coming! Since fans have called my wolf series the Heart of the Wolf series, and I had one ask what the jaguar series will be called, Deb said, "We'll call it the Heart of the Jaguar series." And there you have it. From the editor's mouth.
I want you to know that's why the cameraman is standing SOOO far away. You see, jaguars are territorial. Can't wait to show the before and after pictures! I will say the setting was in the Amazon, and I really didn't feel the same way about meeting with a jaguar there. I'm afraid I'd much more opt for the Grand Cayman Island visit!
I'll be at a book signing in New Orleans also from 9-11 on Sunday, Mar 4, so if you live around there, stop by and say hi! We'll be at the New Orleans Marriott at 555 Canal Street!
I'm going to try and find a book store and autograph books in Houston also while I stay with my daughter and son-in-law overnight on Sunday if we can. It depends on how late I get in.
She was asking if there ever is a conference in Houston, I could go to it and stay with them. Is there? Or maybe I can do a workshop for an RWA group. Poor kids. The only way they think I'm coming to see them is to offer a writing workshop or attend a conference nearby. I always autograph books whenever I visited my son when he was in Pensacola. Kind of like "Leroy was here."
I would love to do a grand tour, winding my way around the country, seeing all kinds of sites, dropping into book stores, autographing books and saying hi to fans. But my library job won't go along with it. *sigh*
They can be just plain ornery at times!
Ohmigosh how true is this???
Here an old man and his loving dog is pictured, but we could just as easily picture a SEAL-wolf and a she-wolf...and all that that entails! You know it's forever.
They mate for life, so yeah, they stick together forever and ever.
Remember to drop by at the various blogs on the tour and say hi!

Wish me luck in finding my way to New Orleans!
Have a super fun day! I don't have to work at the vampire shift tonight at the library, woohoo!
Oh, and truly, I love my kids, so I'd visit them anyway, but if there was a conference that just happened to be going on where I might be able to present a workshop...
The other location is Omaha, Nebraska. That's where my son moved. Just saying. :)
So the question of the day is: Ever have a dog or cat or both that loved you more than anything in the world, that you could forget to feed, or ignore when they wanted to play, or step on their tails by accident and yet they will adore you unconditionally anyway?
Well, see? If that's the case, you'd fit right in with one of my wolves!
