Even though it’s been
forever a long time not so long ago, really, that I went to school in September, I still get totally excited after Labor Day. I just want to go out and buy a bunch of pencils and sharpen them into really, really sharp points.
That is to say, I’m ready to get down to business. Thank goodness, I have a wonderful conference to attend in October and the presenters are zipping around on a blog tour right now. So any sand left between my toes (or in my brain) shakes out along the way.
Maybe you have a few grains of sand you’d like to shake loose. Follow along with me and get your pencils ready to take notes.
And oh, look! Agent Jennifer Rofe from Andrea Brown Literary is going to be HERE on Friday! So y’all come back now, you hear? (Uh-oh. It appears a little Southern has slipped into my writing. I’ll work on that, too.)

Looks like a great line up. I think my name needs to come off the list, though. That blog hasn’t been updated since last November, and I have not heard anything from the blog owner about doing a tour stop at her blog.
I shall hang out in your comments’ section and heckle you, instead.
That sounds like great fun, Sally! 🙂 (Or you could stop by HERE and I’ll harass you with questions. Hmmmm?)
Good stuff! Thanks, Cath. Enjoy yourself at WIK!
I’ll try to take good notes, Lisa. But…um…that never works out too well for me. 🙂
So what’s wrong with “a little Southern” slipping in? I can think of a few famous men (and women) from the south that I could listen to–or read–all day long. 😉
True enough, Sioux. I s’pose I’ll let my Southern roots show. 🙂
Well now, why aren’t you headlining?
I’m working on it, Linda. I’m surely working on it. 🙂
