Whew! This has been a busy month!
I’ve been busy learning the ropes of promoting my new book, How To Fell A Timberman, going to the new InDScribe Conference and hosting my writing friends for a great writing retreat while hubby made a trip back to Singapore to visit his mom.
So about the conference:
Big fun – The Conference was held by IndD’tale Magazine in Palm Springs and I met the lovely and lively owner, TJ Mackay. Workshops for the new-t0-writing kids on the block, workshops on promoting books, book signings, parties every night and even an award night with live music and entertainment!
And yes there were a few cover models, male and female hanging out who were mostly there to promote their cover model businesses. It seems many are as independent as the Indie writers themselves. So many new businesses have popped up to support indie publishing! But that’s another blog entirely.
The coveted RONE [Reward Of Novel Excellence] awards were handed out on Saturday night. You can go HERE to take a look at winners. It was a formal affair with as I mentioned live entertainment including a Prince and and Michael Jackson impersonator.
And of course I met many many authors like myself and formed new friendships. A while back I joined Pioneer Hearts, both the Facebook reader page and the Author’s only page. Here’s a picture of all of us at the reader/author party we threw.

After the conference Lyn Horner and Carra Coplin drove from Palm Springs to my home on the CA cost. We did some of the tourist stuff with an oceanside lunch and a peak into the stores at Laguna Beach, especially the Candy Barron, a candy store that carries almost every old fashion candy ever made!
Well, that’s all for now folks. I’m off to work on How To Kiss A Troll. If you love American Historicals I encourage to join other readers at Pioneer Hearts. It’s a wonderful community where you learn about all the latest releases on your favorite books.
