Red Shoes Diary…

Okay, so last night I had one of those quintessential Manhattan evenings that makes me proud to be a newly minted New Yorker tricked out in four inch red platform heels. Recently I reconnected with romance writer extraordinaire, Liz Maverick. Liz and I met “back in the day” at a Celebrate Romance Conference but beyond quick catch-ups at a conference here and there, we kind of lost touch. Like me, Liz is a recent transplant to the city, in her case from the West Coast, and a Saturday night out seemed as good a time as any to compare notes on our Single Girl in the Big City experiences so far.

Start point: Blue Ribbon Sushi in Soho where I met Liz and her buddy, Bonnie, for an early (for New York) dinner. After pounding down a truly amazing amount of excellent sushi, we headed Uptown to Terminal 5 where not one but three great bands were playing. The headliner, She & Him, was seriously amazing. The lead vocalist, Zooey Deschanel, who also happens to be a song writer and pianist, is so over-the-top talented it’s well…pretty insane.

This week my Manhattan adventuring will be put on the back burner as I head to San Francisco for the Romance Writers of America national conference. The conference kicks off on Wednesday night with a charity autographing to benefit literacy programs in the area. I’ll be signing copies of Bound to Please as well as Enslaved and later in the week giving a workshop on “Tracking Trends” in romance fiction with my friend, Terri Ridgell. In between taking care of “bizness,” there’s the Harlequin party at the fabulous Four Seasons Hotel and of course the conference finale, an awards ceremony and desert reception on Saturday night. Once I’m back in the city to catch my breath, I’ll be dishing on all of it–I promise!

In the meantime, have a great week…

  1. They want you to come to the salon on a regular basis so they tell you that you need to get a haircut every four
    to six weeks, but it’s just a way for them to make more
    money. Redheads and folks with course hair will typically be higher shedders than blondes
    or those with fine hair. Refrain or limit the amount of heat applied to your hair through the use of blow dryers,
    curling irons, straighteners, etc.

  2. The best HCG diet clinics in Louisiana can help to quickly put you into a better mood.
    *These weight reduction treatments include oral h – CG or an injection of
    h – CGa drug, which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as
    safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control.
    When you can get your hands on a copy, you will discover the important to watching
    your pounds vanish into thin air.
