Sunday Salon: I'm a tease

Sunday, September 26, 2010


Yes, that's right.
So, this weekend I had made some fairly last minute plans to spend time at the SIBA trade show (Southern Independent Bookseller's Alliance) and to meet up with Heather at Raging Bibliomania, Kathy at Bermudaonion, and Sandra and You've GOTTA Read This...

It was held in Daytona Beach (still is today I believe) which isn't too far from here. Original plan was to take a few hours off of work in the morning on Friday and head over for the blogger & bookseller panel. Then my hubby was going to come with me Saturday afternoon and then join everyone up for dinner! Well, I ended up having to cancel Friday because of some issues at work.. I won't get into it here but it basically came down to me having to choose my battles.. and I was being made to justify why I had to miss an "important" meeting. So skipped that. Then I was on call the weekend and while I realized I could have gotten called in, many times I don't so I figured I'd be safe. Well, we were less than 20 minutes away from the place and my pager went off. And I had to go in to work. I was soooo bummed!!! And I was really looking forward to meeting up with everyone!! So I'm a tease... because I made all these plans and kept having to back out of them! Ah well... there's always BEA again in May... =) Or maybe there will be another bookish event in Orlando...

As for my reading, I've had such reading ADD lately... I must have started 5-6 different books at least. I'm just reading whichever I'm in the mood for at the time, but that means it's taking me awhile to actually finish a book! And I'm trying not to get too distracted by all the premiers on tv! Did my first short story post this past Friday... hopefully I enjoy the rest better than the first one! Not much else going on in reading. Lots going on in other parts of my life.... the next few months are going to be super crazy but fun! I've also got almost all of December booked already... I'm one of those who starts planning for Christmas in September, lol! Can't wait for the holidays!

Hope everyone has a great week!

I completely understand! I was so disappointed when I didn't get to meet up with you in Chicago!

Sorry work got in the way of your plans for SIBA - so frustrating! I missed most of BEA the same way. Hope you can make another event soon!

There IS always BEA next May. Too bad though for this weekend.

Jen,
I am sorry you didn't get to come! It's cool though. Since you live in Orlando, I am sure we can set up a time for Sandy, you and I to get together. I also have s couple of little surprises for you, so send me an e-mail about how I can get them to you!
