What Not to Bare and Things

What Not To Bare by Megan FramptonFirst off, I would be remiss if I did not mention that What Not to Bare is discounted, for a limited time, to .99.

And also (this feels as though it’s going to be a very newsy post, so bear with me–ha! see what I did there–while I share) I’ve had a workshop accepted to this year’s RWA National Conference:¬†Angst and Affability: Using Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice to Craft New Adult and Contemporary Romance. I’ll be doing the workshop for the first time at the New England Conference, and I’m excited and nervous about presenting it.

I love going to conferences because it’s a time to connect in person with fellow writers and romance readers, people who know just what I’m talking about when I mention black moment, or DNF, or TBR pile, or any of those types of things.

Also–this is SO NEWSY, my goodness!–I received my RITA books for judging. For people who don’t know, the RITA is an award given to the best books from a year, rather like the Oscars for romance novels. And it’s judged by fellow writers. I love judging because I am exposed to authors and genres I might not normally find on my own. Of course I have the secret hope that someone out there is discovering ME and finding something she wouldn’t have known about. The nominations come out around the end of March. So cross your respective fingers for all of us who’ve entered!

Today, and most of this weekend, in fact, is set aside for writing, since I’m embarking on a new project, and I’m excited about it, but I can’t share details for a bit. So I’m off to read, and write, and flog my book sale, and all that. What about you? What are you doing this weekend?

    This week I didn’t get much time to write due to college financial aid paperwork–blech! But yesterday I had my daughters shovel snow and do laundry so I could get back to editing LORD LANGDON’S KISS. So happy to be creative again (they frown on creativity on the FAFSA and CSS Profile). Also happy to be in the RITAs and judging again.

  2. You have been a busy bee! This weekend I’ve been writing some and working on my mother’s finances (don’t ask!) Being the oldest child, only girl and the responsible one can be a pain in the arse at times!

    I am trying to resist the lure of my latest acquisition Coker’s Vauxhall Gardens, made possible by my brother and sister-in-law’s generous Christmas gift!

    I’ve been going through the copy edits of A Lady of Notoriety, my August book. This is my last pass on the book! Now I’ve got to start another one….
