My birthday was a few days ago, and it was probably my favorite birthday ever! In the words of Ice Cube, it was a good day.
My day in the office went smoothly, and then my friends and I went out to a great new Turkish restaurant. The food and the atmosphere was phenomenal. They even would read your fortune from your coffee grounds! It felt a little like Harry Potter.
A few of us then went out for drinks. Even though there was some drunk guy trying to talk politics with us, we had a good time at the bar.
Good food, good company, and lots of good wishes from you all via social media—I couldn't have asked for a better birthday!
Meanwhile, I'm impatiently waiting for this coming weekend, since the Adult Prom is on Saturday! I bought a purple gown, and my friend and I are getting our nails and hair done beforehand—just like if we were going to a real prom! Which is great for me, because I didn't go to my prom in high school. I'm so excited for this girls' night out.
Of course, the following weekend is the Angels & Sirens event! I am so excited to be in attendance with some other awesome hockey romance authors: Melody Heck Gatto, Lisa B. Kamps, V.L. Locey, Lindsay Paige, Samantha Wayland, and more who I know I've forgotten. Some of these ladies I'll be meeting for the first time.
I've been prepping for the past couple of months for this event. It's my first, so I needed to get a banner made. Next came some swag for myself and the Comets. Then I got a bunch of copies of my paperbacks to bring for anyone interested. I've bundled up my pre-orders. Now I'm making lists to make sure I bring everything I need.
Credit card reader? Check.
iPhone 7 headphone adapter that I put someplace safe and then forgot where so I had to buy a new one? Check.
And I have a few surprises to put together. With a week and a half left before the event, there's a lot to do between now and then! I hope to get to see some of you readers there.
Now I'm off to double-check my list and doing some brainstorming.
