I'm back home from Raven Con. I had a wonderful time. I got to meet Marcia Colette in person after blogging and e-mailing her back and forth. I sat in on her first panel Twice told tales. She didn't know she was moderating until she arrived at the Con. She did a great job. I got her to sign her book for me. Wish we had more time to talk but, I had my girls with me.

I was able to go to the Con on Friday and Sat. I mostly listened trying to learn as much as possible and, I did learn a lot. I think I prefer the smaller Con events over the large ones. I liked being in small conference rooms up close to some of your favorite authors and being able to have your questions answered personally.

It was so cool sitting in on the panel with David Coe and Missy Massey and thinking, that I follow their blog and advise on Magical Words.

The Raven Con Convention was very inspirational and encouraging.

Oh! The Romantic Times convention was this weekend and friend Marie-Claude Bourque won! That means Ancient Whispers is going to be published. I am so happy for her. She has worked so hard for this. I'll be buying her book as soon as it hits the shelf. I've got to support my peeps.

Well, time to start working on the 3rd draft of Raven's Transformation.

Well, I logged on to the internet after re-writing my short story for the 2nd time that I'm planning on submitting, and found out that my short story I entered for a contest didn't win.

I really didn't expect to win the first contest I've ever entered but, I was hoping to at least place.(Sigh) Not only am I disappointed at not placing but, I got no feed back from the contest. I didn't even get a form letter letting me know the winners had been announced.

Well, I'm certainly glad I did my re-write before I found out about the contest.
