Wow. It has been the busiest, most amazing week. (I'm going to call the last seven days a week rather than a calendar week because . . . well, it's my blog and I want to!:D) It started out last Wednesday by finding out Wings had hit number one on the NYT Bestseller's week. Well, you just can't start out a week any better than that! We have been rather frantically packing for the last week anyway, and Thursday we packed all morning. All. Morning. Then Kenny and I decided to reward ourselves by going to a movie with a friend. Halfway through the movie, my BIL texted me to let me know that The-Moving-Company-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named had called to tell us that out truck (which was the only one that size or bigger in the entire state, apparently) was in Cedar City (three hours away) and, no, there was nothing they could (or would) do about it. Bear in mind this was literally less than 18 hours before we were scheduled to pick up said truck. So we calmly sat back and enjoyed the rest of the movie, then it was crisis-fixing time! Three hours, a new moving company, about $350 extra, and nine extra feet of truck later, we managed to secure another truck. Phew!
So Friday morning we got up early and cleaned out our sheds, took a huge van-full of stuff to the dump, I mowed the lawn, did a bunch of cleaning, and then . . . took off to spend the day at CONduit, a sci-fi/fantasy convention in Salt Lake City. So yes, I did cruelly leave Kenny and some family and friends to load the van. By the time I got home that night, they were done!
The next morning, my husband and three babies left me.
Well, not like that. But they moved down to Phoenix and I have obligations up here till the first week of June. *sniff* I miss them.
But I still have a fun week to look forward to. I am getting my highlights redone tomorrow (I love my highlights!) and on Thursday I am going to New York!! My whole publishing team (the people behind the magic!!) is getting together with me Thursday night to celebrate Wings being in the top spot and then on Friday I am taping an interview for book two, signing fifty books for a Costco Giveaway, attending a luncheon for the Indie Next list, and going to a swanky party that night. Whew! It will be fun! I am also meeting up with a bunch of friends at multiple locations and going to see WICKED at the Gershwin on Saturday! Can I just tell you how much I have been looking forward to this trip!?!?!? So hopefully that will help my loneliness.:)
I'm also gearing up for the Supernatural Summer Tour that is happening next week. (See that cool little widget over there in my sidebar?!?) We (the authors) will be filming the tour stops with little flip cameras so there should be some fun footage when we all get back in case you can't make it to one of the stops.
So yeah! Look for fun updates and in case you aren't following me on Twitter, that is where I do the bulk of my updates when I am traveling! I also have discovered the Facebook App that Kenny put on my phone WEEKS ago and tend to take and upload a bunch of pics that way! So check out my Facebook page too!
Also, if you are going to be at BEA, look for me!! (And I'll look for you.) I'll be the one with the WINGS button on my shirt.;)
