One week after I got all dolled up and dressed up in my gorgeous purple gown, I had another fabulous weekend spent with an amazing group of fellow hockey romance writers and hockey fans! First, we all went out to the Pens game on Friday night to see Pittsburgh take on Tampa Bay.

The Pens won, and we all had a good time together.
Then on Saturday, I was up early to head to the Meadows Casino in Washington, PA, for the Angels & Sirens 2017 author event. Here I am, at my table, my signing pen ready to go:
And meeting readers:
It was quite an experience. My first ever signing! I met some great people, including fellow authors, bloggers, and readers. I'll admit that I was nervous about my first event—whether anyone would want to stop by to see me or even what the event would be like. But it was better than I could have hoped. I was waiting to see how a local event would go before I decided if I would attend any future signings or events. I had so much fun that I've decided to attend more.
In fact, I've signed on for one in six months: The Glass City Author Event in Toledo, Ohio. It takes place on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Of course, being so busy does have its consequences; I fell pretty sick this week. My brain has been so foggy that I can't even read, and I'm too exhausted to move about from room to room. I have advocated a lot for self care, and this is a perfect example of why that's necessary. When you push yourself, you weaken your body's ability to fight off any bugs.
Hopefully I'm feeling well enough tomorrow to attend my grandmother's 80th birthday party!
So I'm off to drink some tea and take some more decongestants. Happy reading!
