But what started as a business partnership has long since turned into honest-to-goodness friendships. When we began I'd never met Tielle and had only passing acquaintances with Tara, Cait, Cat, and Lynn. Ruby was really the only one I'd ever had a long conversation with and it was she who got me involved with this zany group of people. I bonded with Tara over several bottles of Guinness at the last two Romanticons and am thankful for a story she told me one night that paved the way for Services Rendered. Cat helped me over my first conventions with the Romantic Times crowd and I will never forget meeting Cait for the first time on a visit to Bubba Gump's in Daytona, Florida. I met Tielle when I took a trip to Alaska and we talked so long we closed the bar and then sat in the hotel lobby and talked to the wee hours of the morning. And then there's Lynn, who's bright spirit and incredible organizational skills keeps us all headed in the right direction. I love you all, ladies!
Some time ago we published a cookbook and had such fun doing it we decided to publish a quarterly newsletter of all our doings. We include excerpts from our latest works, there's always an interview with one of the seven of us where you can learn all sorts of odd tidbits about our lives and lately we've started running an article about some aspect of life and/or writing. In April Tara started us off and this month features my article.
The newsletter is free and if you like, you can subscribe to it. Or you can just wait for me to post that the newest edition is up and ready for your viewing pleasure
So, tomorrow you're going to want to head to the blog (I'll post a reminder, don't worry) and then on Tuesday you're going to want to be here for the unveiling of the first writer's workshop (if you don't know what that is, click here to read about it).
In the meantime, play safe!
